Yesterday this camera was 82% today I go to view from app and it says it’s disconnected so I reboot the base station and it now shows 3%
The camera is 8 feet away from base station and with a clear line of site
In the same room
Why are they doing this
Only thing I can think of is it had problems connecting back after the app update last night

Hi @Gustouk

 

Have you tried to remove the camera from Settings > My Devices > Re-Add it?

 

Also, have you seen the Tenergy batteries on the Arlo website? I believe this may help if you do not currently have rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable Battery and Charger by Tenergy

Have removed and re added now but because of the other 2 cameras doing the same couple weeks ago I now have 1 working out of 4 due to the price of the battery’s
I’ve looked at the mains powered adapter but this battery drain is not really a good thing and makes me want to chuck the lot in the bin if only they didn’t cost so much in the first place I would
