On the initial install the batteries lasted 30 days. I've charged all the cameras to 100% and within two days they are all between 40-45%. Nothings changed and I've read several of the post about usage, recording time blah blah blah.  Nothing's changed in reference to usage but the battery life has clearly changed. Is that a known issue with the Arlo pro cameras?

This is not normal.

I have my cameras set to the highest resolution and with 10-20 10s recordings a day my battery lasts a few months.

 

I would try and reset the cameras by removing and replacing the battery and power cycling the base.

If none of this works then factory reset the base and resync the cameras.

What firmware are base and cameras running?

Also thanks for the quick response. It'll be a few days before I can try the recommended steps to remedy the issue. I'll report back either way in a few days.

Cycling the base power fixed the problem. Thanks again.
