Hurry up and fix this crap.  I have a system down at my RV that I need to turn off the alram for a friend but cannot.  It ihas been down way to long.

What is your expected resolution time? I have no security at my business location!

It would be nice if they sent out an email when this kind of thing happens.  Luckily this service has been extreamly reliable for the past few years so this is only the 2nd time I've noticed my cameras where inaccessable, that's still pretty bad odds if they aren't recording on motion during the outage, I'm not home to try triggering one so may never know.

Will we all be receiving a credit on our accounts for the downtime?  Those of us that are paying customers that is!

I'm still receiving motion alerts so i am assuming it is atleast still recording. we just can't view them.

Is there any update to this problem as of yet??

It's not a "feature", but the Arlo's core functionality. If I can't get to the video, the Arlo is worthless.

No updates 4 hours later? No email notification when there is a world wide problem?? Unacceptable for a brand presenting itself as a security company.

I bought 3 Arlo Pro cameras yesterday and this is my reward. Unacceptable. I can't even start a chat without an AWS CloudFront connection error popping up.

Arlo has been down for hours and it is worldwide...makes one wonder if you have been hacked...do you think criminals are taking a break while Arlo/Netgear figures out what is going on?

The Arlo team emailed me about the outage 10 minutes after I posted here.  ha

Totally unacceptable

Tell that to the burglar. The camera availability shouldn't have anything to do with the 3rd party

Well, all of the criminals are just looking for Arlo stickers right about now aren't they? Wow. This is unacceptable. I have spent thousands on netgear products over the years. NO MORE! I suffered silently through Orbi's tirade of useless updates, but netgear has lost me as a customer.

Update on resolution PLEASE??? What is the expected resolution time?? One notice stating there is an issue isn’t acceptable. We KNOW there is an issue. We need additional details about the cause and resolution. These are security cameras that are unavailable!!

Very impressive.  Few if any other providers would inform their customers of outages.  Nice Work!

Three hours later and they finally send an outage alert. I just spent the last hour restarting base stations, checking IP addresses on my wireless router, etc. Thanks Netgear.

When you have a system outage you should notify your customers. I have a disabled husband that has home heath care while I am at work. This is a new person and I have no idea how they are treating him today. While I undersand technical problems, as I customer that has spent over $500 on your products, we deserve to know so we can make other arrangements for our security checks.
