Hello all,

Did something change recently to the Arlo system to where I can no longer detect motion on my Arlo setup?

 

I can not find any settings to re-enable motion detection recording?

 

I record video local via USB external

 

Any advice helps

 

BASE: VMB4000

3x: VMC4030

1x VMC4030P

To start with try power cycling the base station.

Confirm that you have a working armed mode selected for the base station in the app, it should have four rules, one each camera.

 

 If no go, remove the camera battery and external power for 10sec to reset the camera.

 

Check if the motion sensor test works correctly on each camera.

 

Last action would be to remove all cameras and Base from the account, factory reset the base and add them back again as if new.

Would this work for the doorbell camera too??? First my doorbell cam stopped sensing motion, and then it was the camera on the same side of the house! I thought there were shenanigans, but your fix for the camera seems more plausible!
