I've had the Arlo pro 3 camera with base station for a few months and it has worked fine. I recently switched to google wifi and while I've had no issues with the base station or cameras. But when I purchase three more arlo pro cameras I cant get the base to recognize them. I also tried setting up a second base and that wouldn't connect with them either. I've been through the normal troubleshooting from arlo but no luck. Any thoughts?

When trying to sync cameras, be sure to only briefly press the base sync button - don't hold it for 2 seconds.


For the base, where is the new base connected? I don't have a mesh network but it appears that sometimes you need to connect to the main router rather than a satellite. If that works, it may then work fine when connected to a satellite.
