I can't move my cameras in my Arlo Smart settings in my Android app. I want to move them from Inactive to Active but all six cameras do not move. I cannot drag them anywhere. They are all in the inactive section.
However, although they are all "inactive" I am still getting Smart-style notifications (i.e. "Person detected") with the redundancy and delay.
I am a Premier subscriber, but I do not have any Person/Vehicle/Animal settings available on any of my camera settings.
Settings -> Arlo Smart (Manage and Notifications) -> Edit -> "Manage Arlo Smart" : no cameras can be dragged anywhere

Short answer: no, because I can't login.
It's a separate issue, but I can't login to the browser app. I keep clicking "Login" but nothing happens. It doesn't return an error message. I know the password is correct because it's the same as the one I'm using on my phone app.
Same problem. In addition to a variety of Arlo problems. I spoke with support, on the phone, last Friday (11.30). And they opened a ticket, escalated, and promised they'd get back to me. Nothing doing. The lady to talked with me acted as if she had never heard of this issue. I'm confident Netgear will have this resolved sometime in 2019.(!)
As you are all aware, our development team is aware where some users are unable to move the cameras from "Inactive" to "Active" and is currently investigating the problem. We will make sure to update the community as we hear more information. In the meantime, try to reboot the Base Station and see if that helps.
This does not work. When I try to activate smart activity I get “you are not authorized to make this change “.
Spent over 2 hours with support resetting my subscription only to find out they are working on this?
ever sense the recent updates to the app this along with smart zones is broken?
We we are working on it after I have spent hours on this is no longer an acceptable answer.
yes I have tried on pc and app. Broke broke broke
ok Arlo Employee? You posted you are aware on 12/07 .. Any updates on estimates on a resolution? at what point to we anticipate a credit for not recieving the features we subscribe too?
arlo doesn't have the Arlo Go listed as a model above. Maybe that is why the settings don't work on PC or android app. I can see why this is a low priorty for arlo. Now that they have the subscription money there is no reason not to tank this product or fix these long standing problems. As long as people keep buying and subscribing, what is the downside to not solving the problem?
Even though I have a subscription to Arlo Smart, I can't add the camera in the setup. It hangs when you try to move the camera in setup and ultimately fails when the login times out and you get booted.
I'm having the same issue. I originally signed up and then my credit card address changed so my monthly payment was declined. So I had to sign up again and now I can't move the camera to the active list. Before my previous subscription was canceled it worked, now since signing up again, it doesn't work. This is VERY frustrating. I've rebooted the camera, no change. My Arlo is a Pro2 with built-in cellular so there is no base station.
I paid for a annual subscription for my two Arlo Pro 2 but every month I have one of them out of the subscription... Helpdesk can’t solve this problem obviously !
The main issue is not the loss of notification but the battery drain
So once again and like every month I’m paying for a service that I can’t use ...
ARLO TEAM NEEDS TO WAKE UP !!!!
I have never been able to move my Arlo Go into active, but I can set schedules and define activity zones. This may be a bug in their web site.
Thank you for your replies.
Well it's good to know that my brand new top of the line model (Ultra VMB5000R4 base station and H6 "Ultra" cams) are having the same widely report issue as users have been experience since December of 2018....
I originally purchased a 3 camera Pro 2 kit. 2 of the 3 cameras had this issue - they went inactive and i could not toggle them back to active. Once this happened, they were showing inactive for smart notifications - yet they were clearly triggering alerts (all alerts enabled - default?) again.
Didn't matter because I was already planning to return them for the upgraded 4k resolution models. Got a 2 camera Ultra kit and 1 camera just did the same thing.
Went through all the troubleshooting steps that have been mentioned in here, with no luck.
Funny thing is the web browser shows that the 1 inactive camera is active - it even lets me toggle smart notification settings... but no matter what I change - it's still giving me alerts for everything (default?). The mobile app continues to show the 1 camera as inactive and doesn't let me toggle.
I even tried changing my subscription, which made me forfeit my free trial of premier. Still no luck - inactive.
I can't believe with how many users there are reporting this, that it hasn't been fixed in ALMOST AN ENTIRE YEAR.
This has been an absolutely terrible experience from the first attempt to install (firmware search taking forever and failing multiple times due to no response from the server). Multiple cameras succumbing to the same inactive status (which enables all smart alerts and doesn't let you change anything).
Now finding out that there's no resolution in almost a year.
This really says a lot about a company... tech support has escalated this issue for me. If i don't get a resolution within the 24-72 alloted hours they told me - netgear has lost my business for life. I will tell every single person I ever run into to not purchase netgear products - especially not an Arlo.
