We purchased the Arlo Pro with six cameras for a cabin in a semi remote area. The base and cameras say an update is required for the base and cameras that does not finish. In reading your notes it's likely the bandwidth here. How often does the firmware update as removing all cameras to take to town beats the purpose of buying the set. Wondering if we should box up and return to Best Buy.

tred,

 

Base Station and Camera firmware updates are not frequent. You can see a history of release notes here: Firmware Release Notes

James, with introduction of local recording now perhaps it may be an idea to suggest that you may develop a way to manually apply updates via the USB ports. You may find that more and more people will start to use the system offline in remote locations. Just a thought.

I ditched Arlo! As a Company they hold their Customers/Us in complete contempt! We beta test producs for them, the products only work properly for ~70% of the time at best!

If you are serious about your home or work security then look elsewhere! Get a ip Camera System with an NVR and some Blink XT cameras to cover the places you cannot run a cable to. You will NEVER regret moving away from Arlo!
