I have same issue. 2 points. One- make sure you motion detect is set to 100%. In florida we have high humidity nights. My cams will just quit working at night if the air is too dense(fog). Easily loose half my sensory distance at night when i need it most. Reinstalled many times before figuring this out. Cams would magically start working when the sun came up. Looking fir something better

I too have started getting this problem on one of my 3 cameras.  In fact I can pinpoint the time and date when it started - around 10pm on Nov 27.  Since then, recording stops at about 6-7pm and stays off until around 8am. Perfect for night time burglars as a recent theft at a neighbour's house proved.  He broke in around 2:30am but my system had no recordings at all.

 

And yes, I've tried a reset, remove, re-add, etc, etc.  I am just about prepared to try a replacement camera, but it doesn't sound like a hardware problem to me.  My guess is that being busy at night, some software element on the server has decided to cut off recordings as it's using too much space.  If this is the case, shame on you Arlo.  This system was expensive to buy and I also pay a monthly subscription for cloud storage.

I’ve given up. I moved onto Ring wireless mounted cameras and couldn’t be happier! I recommend doing the same if you want to feel safe at night!

This camera system has had nothing but ongoing problems since I purchased the Arlo Pro system new. I'm about done as well. I'll start saving for a five camera replacement system now...
