Does not work. Still showing offline.  FW 1.9.8.0_16666. IPhone App v. 2.5.0.

 

Did it require BS boot. I am not in a position to do that.

Please do not mark this as resolved as it clearly is not.

No it did not require a reboot once the issue was resolved everything started operating normally again. At least mine did. From the beginning all my lights on the base station were green. From the App/web I was able to stream the cameras up until the point the software discovered it thought the base station was offline and then made it appear the cameras were offline. The cameras were still operational but since the base station was offline the cameras could not trigger a record.

Good evening @T2342344

 

It should not require a reboot.  Give me a moment to investigate. I'll be back in touch with you shortly! Can you please send me a private message with your base station serial number so I can escalate your case?

 

Thank you in advance!

Pretty dysfunctional here too - first noticed about an hour and a half ago and it's been the same since. Cameras all show up initially on login (browser or app) and can use live view, but no status indicators appear, there's no ability to record and motion detection isn't working. After a minute or two logged in, the cameras then all show as offline. Base station also appears offline in device settings, but there's three solid green lights on the base station itself.

Just power cycled the base station and waited a while. No change.

 

EDIT: Just PM'd base station serial to ChristineT.

 

EDIT 2: Additional details as requested in initial post.
Base Station firmware: unknown, as doesn't show up in settings while base station offline.
Device type showing offline: Arlo (original) base station, Arlo (original) cameras, Arlo Pro cameras, Arlo Pro 2 cameras
Internet Service Provider: Aussie Broadband
Exact error message: "Your Arlo device appears offline" a minute or two after login, "This Arlo device is offline" in base station settings
The application used (iOS, Android, Web): Android, Web

My system Base Station came back up without reboot and I can control it.

 

However one of three cameras is working normally now and two are showing offline. Upon 1st reboot of the base station the two offline became online and the previous online camera was offline. Another reboot swiched the status back to one online and two offline. This is really weird.

HW-Version VMB3010r2

I CALLED MY INFORMATION INTO SUPPORT AN HOUR AGO.

 

what is bad about this from netgear is we use our email to login and

you cant send us notification that there is an issue, we find out ourselves

my system has not recorded anything in almost 15 hours !

and I have to find out the hard way

meizydavid Apprentice

what kind of quality control do you use , NOTHING

how do you put out a firmware update that causes your 

network of users to go down ! TERRIBLE

I have 2 base stations and 9 cameras. Apparently, 1 base station either automatically updated the firmware or had not changed the firmware and is working fine. The other base station has not been working for about 24 hours and has been offline since. Unfortunately, it is the more important base station with all cameras being outdoors to protect my car and home.  I cannot provide the firmware version as it is offline. Four of the cameras are H7 and only 1 is H3.

 

Before I found this topic and that others were having the same problem, I rebooted several times throughout the day without change and as of this morning this base station is still offline. I rebooted this morning as well at about 4:30 AM EST.

 

I am located in South Florida, USA

Now all cameras and base station seem to work correctly again. Thanks!

 

The web interface is now showing an additional ear icon above every camera next to battery, wifi and movement indicator. Does that mean that the cameras can record audio now?

I'm having the same problem right now here in Denmark.

 

My Arlo Base Station (serial: 48E5817CA29BF) appears to be off line although the leftmost 3 leds are green.

 

Powering off and on again does not help.

 

Please fix ASAP.

 

Thanks

Sorry,

 

The methods have disappeared. And I can no longer change the activated mode. By adding a new mode, the procedure stops when I press the End wizard button.

 

What can I do?

I mean that after the "Base Offline Problem", all the modes that I had created, they disappeared. and if I try to create a new one, the wizard crashes.
