Re: Arlo System Connectivity Issues - Is this Frequent?

Being completely down not a huge issue. But the bigger problem for me and many others (read posts) is theres always issues. They even erased my paid subscription one time. I did the trial firmware back in may and it fixed everything for me but then they did more updates and now im back to rapid battery drain. About 10% a day . so i have to charge weekly. This system used to work flawlessly. The problem isnt the product. Its the engineering and support teams. I used to go months without having to charge. And if you have a problem theres really nowhere to turn. I cant reccomend this system just based on the ongoing issues and lack of support

Re: Arlo stopped working

Mine is back up and running. It was down about 2 hours. When will the rapid battery drain issues be addressed? Im losing about 7-10% every night while disarmed and no recordings. Charging weekly really sucks. It was fine in may when they did the trail firmware it fixed it for me but now its back to rapid drain again

We are sorry. The system is experiencing an unexpected issue. Arlo PRO2 (Bought 12 Days Ago)

 

 

 

I recently bought 6 Pack Arlo Pro 2 with 2 Pack Wireless Security Light

- Setup was smooth but day one started seeing disconnection issue

- after 12 Days, Main Account can't login and keeps getting "We are sorry. The system is experiencing an unexpected issue." Grant account is working but unfortunatley System is Armed and Grant account can't Disarm the same

- Wait time was 45mins before i got in touch with Support over the phone

- Was on call with support for 1hour and 42mins , He was simply going through scripts without any troubleshooting experience

- Kept placing on Hold to chat with his peer

- Asked for Manager escalation and he didn't pursue saying Manager will say same thing and didn’t escalate to manager

- Now I need to wait for 24 to 48 Hours before somebody will reach-out to me on my case

- Really disappointed on Netgear as I have all network gears from Netgear and bought ARLO thinking of same quality and customer service but totally wrong decision

- System is so faulty that after removing Power from Base and Light Bridge – Lights are still active of motion

- Really disappointed in this Product

Re: We are sorry. The system is experiencing an unexpected issue. Arlo PRO2 (Bought 12 Days Ago)

Yep. Its not the product its the people behind the product. They have no idea what they are doing. Blind leading the blind. I dont even call support anymore they are useless. Im having battery issues drains 10% a day. I regret buying this system. I would take it back. Im past my warranty. I can tell you its one headache after another with this company. Every time they fix something it breaks something else. Countless issues ongoing

Re: Not receiving notifications, no recording to cloud

Same for me - I shut my phone off and rebooted but still do not get notified or have anything recorded since 4:30 pm ET. Sounds like a major software glitch or something peculiar to the Eastern half of the country.

Re: The system is experiencing unexpected issue..

Its always netgear. One issue after another. More than likely a firmware/software issue. Nothing new. So many bugs with this system

Still unable to log in. Vancouver Canada. “We are sorry. The system is experiencing an unexpected issue.” Is there data regarding the frequency and duration of such system failures? This is a new purchase and I hope this is a very exceptional situation. .

I received an email from Arlo this morning (Norwegian time). It came with a link so you can see the status of Arlo's servers.  To me, all servers are up:   https://status.arlo.com/.

Re: Not receiving notifications, no recording to cloud

Here’s the advice I got from Twitter- log out, uninstall the mobile app, re-download the app, and then log back in. That actually worked! Got a squirrel video 20 seconds later. First in 20 hours. Smiley Happy
