Just checked the desktop version. My library only shows recordings from May 1st. Nothing else. Very strange.

I have the same issue. But if you go to your library and the filter tab uncheck manual and the recordings from today will appear. But you have to do it each time if you log out.

The obviously rolled out an update that wasn't fully tested ... this thing is going back to Costco tomorrow! Seriously, this is ridiculous!

In the same boat! Getting alerts and live view works but unable to view clips. Called support and was given 25 minute wait / longer than expected wait times... no thanks. Tried a chat but it ended immediately due to lack of representatives. Submitted a case via support email link... seems when we need them most they aren't able to support us. Has anyone found a system status page similar to Samsung SmartThings? It let's you subscribe to issues and see current state.

If you look closely on the Web UI it's defaulting to May 1st.  It's showing me recoridngs form May 1st even though it's the 30th.  Likely a bug on their side.

 

What's interesitng about this is it's showing me recordings from a week ago even though I only have the basic subscription, which leads me to believe they are holdong onto recordings much longer.

 

Will continue to investigate, this may be a privacy concern.

Further tomy earlier post.

 

No history in library after May 1 2017. Tried mobile and web app and same issue. Live recording still works. Have no idea if data is still being captured and the issue is with the library presenting the data or the data not being captured at all.

 

I just remembered I had a similar (sort of ) situation with my Piper security system as did several other vendor systems a few months ago. Turns out there was some maintenance being done on an Amazon cloud server (s) and a command did not actually do what it was supposed to and numerous services were down for several hours after I believe they had a cascading shutdown of servers.

 

I am wondering since this may well be a system wide issue that maybe it's something similar- cloud based. 

 

It would be only proper for Arlo support to let us know something, even a "we are aware of the issue and working on it statement."

 

I am sure they monitor the forums. I'm an I.T. guy, 30 + years and things happen but let the client know.

Hopefully they will sort it out before long but making a statement is the right thing to do.

Same issue for me. No recordings all the way to May 1st, which is strange because I have the free option and it's limited to 1 week. Someone needs to work overtime today at Netgear.

Totally need a status page like this!

Would save their service reps from the spikes I'm sure they are getting slammed with at the moment and allow us to stay informed. Thanks for the community shares!

just found out from another user from my own feed that Netgear is slammed with phoe calls about the same problem.  They told him to check back in 2 hours.  Netgear cloud prob got hacked or server melt down.   They forget to pay thier bills??

I guess this happened to ALL Arlo users. I hope we can recoup our videos, this is just ridiculous.

With regard to this case, we are currently experiencing same reports from our valued customers.
We already reported this case to the appropriate department.
We apologize for this inconvenience.

We will update you on this case as soon as we get the resolution from the engineering department.
We would be sending you an email once it would be fixed.

We have same problem.  System is not loading recordings into the library.  On the pc the only date available is from May 1, 2017.  No other dates available.  On the mobile units there are no recordings.  This is frustrating.  We still get notificatios with the recording but they are not being stored in the library

20 Minute wait on phone, finally spoke to someone that was reading from a PR Note, he was trying to get me to trouble shoot a bunch of bullsh#t steps, re-booting system, blah, blah, blah, buying time. I quickly shut that down, by saying their TECHNICAL ISSUE has gone VIRAL.

 

I was told they can't tell when it went down NOR, KNOW WHEN IT WILL BE BACK UP.

 

If anyone gets robbed in the mean time, call your attorney, this is unexceptableas they advertise being a home security system, where is the security.

They have been down all day, going on 24 hours. this is NOT a Hiccup, this is pure stupitiy to not have a back-up server to switch to.

 

I was told that there cloud is down, to me that means hacked and that their engineering department has been working on it all day. A backup server at a different site to switch to could have helped that.

 

This system is too expensive to have an issue like this, a CCTV at least has a backup recorder with the cloud and push notification to view for 1/3 the price.

 

I Guess EBAY may be seeing an increase in Arlo sales.
