Pertaining to Arlo secure and arlo safe. Where can I find help on Accounts. I don't see any documentation and Tech support through the app is not helpful at all. I have added my wife to my account. The cameras and home security system I shared show up in her Arlo secure app. Her location shows up in her app. Under automation it shows the mode I set up in mine for when we arrive/leave, her phone does not show up in my Automation Arrive/Leave arm away setting. I have arlo safe as well and on her app it shows her location. My plan does not show up on her app. On my app it shows her offline. Through the arlo safe app on mine I can text, call. If I Send check request from the app on my phone it prompts a message stating that Michelle's location setting must be set to Always in their phone setting for Arlo Safe to work. It is set to always on, on her phone. Precise location is set as well on her phone for the Arlo Secure app. Since the arm away Arrive/Leave and arlo safe doesn't work it leads me to believe that there is probably an account syncing issue. I have removed her from my account deleted both apps off her phone. reinstalled the apps Both Arlo Secure and arlo safe on her phone and still the same issue. I have the arlo safe and secure pro subscription. We both have android phones.  The first attempt I accepted the request for my wife using a computer. (That was suggested in the community) If I try to log into her account on a computer using a browser I get the orange bar at the top that says "Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'ownerid')" Login Stalls at that point. Any ideas or where there might be some kind of documentation on how this is supposed to work.

Thanks

Bartley,

 

You can view documentation on this feature here: https://kb.arlo.com/000062822/What-are-Arrive-Leave-Automations-and-how-do-I-set-it-up-for-my-Arlo-s...

 

For this to work properly, participating devices need to be signed in to the mobile app.

Is there documentation that isn't so generic. Something like a user manual that would explain what devices should be displayed herein the screenshot. I have no way of knowing if my wife's phone should show up in this setting. Devices in the screenshot are my phone (Highlighted) My iPad and a old phone that I don't even own anymore. Makes one wonder why the old phone is showing up there. I haven't had that one for a couple of years. Is this correct? How is one to know what is supposed to be displayed here? All we can do is assume and spend time troubleshooting when it doesn't work. 

I will check with my wife and make sure that she keeps the app running in the background and see if that is the issue.

Thanks

Having my wife leave the app running in the background did not work. Geofencing for arming the alarm system does not work with the arlo secure app with my account. Ironically the arlo safe app follows her precise location when it is set to live tracking. I can see that on my arlo safe app on my phone. I have no idea if her phone should show up in the arlo secure app under the automation Arrive/leave settings. Both apps on her phone have locations permissions set to enabled for the apps. I am not sure how the accounts are supposed to work, but apparently the GPS is working on her phone and arlo's cloud can see that through the arlo safe app. Her account shows up under my arlo secure appOnce again there is no documentation or help available for the consumer to use to understand how this is supposed to work or if settings are set up properly. The only links provided are generic how-to settings. I am at a lost and frustrated. Really don't feel like troubleshooting a security system. Pre-ordered this in November. Unfortunately, Arlo's live support that is available to the end user appears to be outsourced and does not have the information or the knowledge to help. Basically, scripted responses and a lot of being put on hold. Been with Arlo since 2018 and nothing is getting any better with support, I have several thousand dollars invested with arlo's devices. This year seems like it's time to move on and invest my dollars with another company. Arlo does have some good stuff going on, Quality of devices are great, hopefully they will get it together as a company and support the end users in the future.

Hey JamesC,

I've noticed my battery on my iPhone 12 draining very quickly with the Arlo Safe app installed and in "live tracking" mode, so I switched it to "check in only" on both phones and that seemed to help a bit, but background battery usage is still very high.

 

Could this be the crash detection if I'm driving a lot or just the app needing more optimization? I know it's a pretty new app.

The development team is investigating these reports. I will provide an update as soon as I have more information.

Can't sign up for Arlo Secure online in my account, even after trying a dozen times!!

 

No live agent to speak to for help, so I guess I need to dump this product and go with the less desirable Ring service. At least they have an actual person that you can speak to when you need assistance!

Topher37,

 

Could you provide more details? What happens when you attempt to sign up, are you seeing an error message?
