Weird. I didn't get that email.

It would sure be nice if they would post something, ANYTHING, on Facebook and Twitter and the Arlo support page, so we have some idea they are working on it, and possibly some idea when the service might be available again. This system is great when it works, but these interruptions and glitches are happening too often.

I agree with you ph700, i've had very few problems with mine(Arlo Pro) when they work they do work just fine.

If they have such a page for errors in networked / servers it is always very well hidden.

Of course it is... the company is absolutely clueless on keeping critical infrastructure actually running.

How often does this happen?

Yes, it happens way too much! Have had the system for almost a year and have issues a couple times a month. Hard to feel protected when the system you installed to help, does not work half the time. Whether the Arlo servers are down or the base just hoses up, expect lots of headaches and sleepless nights! Gotta say a wired DVR camera system is much more reliable! They still have a long way to go with these wireless systems!

I literally just went and bought this Arlo Pro 2 with 5 cameras and am trying to set it up.  This is not a good first impression.  I can not even get the base set up.

This is exactly why I wish Arlo would add an additional US Based server for Arlo rather than relying on one overseas.

Ever since their firmware update on 8/1/18 I've experienced issues with my Arlo Pro. Power cycled the base works for a bit and then down again. Now the whole web portal is flaky. Hope they resolve this soon.

Retired my Netgear router yesterday because of unreliable firmware of late. Looks like Arlo may end up with the same fate.

Lol, I’ve had arlo for over a year now. Honestly I never should have bothered. If I wer you I’d return ur cameras.

I stuck by them thinking things can only get better. Instead they get worse. Every update brings issues, worst still sone issues randomly appear ev n though there’s not been an update.

Hi there,


Is anyone else experiencing any connectivity issues at the moment? Our Arlo Q was working just fine until today. We came back home and since then can`t get to the camera at all, had to unplug it to stop the notifications about movement. I disarmed it in the app, but I keep receiving notifications until now - 2 hours later. When I try to log into the app, it takes me about 10 attempts to get in - saying my phone/PC is offline, same for my boyfriend`s account. Once I am actually able to get in, I can`t see my camera anymore. It randomly appears on few login attempts, but it says the camera is offline. It doesn`t make any sense at all. I tried to factory reset the camera and add it as a new device, but I have no control over it whatsoever. It completely stopped working out of the blue and although I tried everything to regain the access, I can`t get it to work and I really ran out of options what to do.


Can anyone help please?

I’ve had Arlo pro2 for. 4 mo and this is the first time I’ve seen this outage.
Not cool!
Arlo you could at least give notice email, social media, etc.
And give some timeline as to what to expect!
What good is a security system if you can’t see what’s going on!
Come on Arlo get with it!
