Re: Arlo Service Down - Temporarily Unable to Login
First off, I am sorry to hear about your mom. That must be tough and I won't even pretend to claim how you must feel.
But my poisition remains... Netgear is in no way obligated to provide you with 24/7 uninterupted service. If your situation demands such a service then clearly you did unfortunately make a bad choice with Arlo. Their own Terms of Service are pretty clear on that..
"YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE ARLO SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS. NETGEAR MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE ARLO SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR THAT USE OF THE ARLO SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE OR ERROR-FREE NOR DOES NETGEAR MAKE ANY WARRANTY AS TO THE ACCURACY OR RELIABILITY OF ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED THROUGH THE ARLO SERVICES"
And to those who were claiming that Netgear should somehow be liable for any burlaries committed during the outage also likely failed to read the ToS too.
"NETGEAR’S EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES DO NOT CAUSE AND CANNOT ELIMINATE OCCURRENCES OF CERTAIN EVENTS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FIRES, FLOODS, BURGLARIES, ROBBERIES AND MEDICAL PROBLEMS. NETGEAR MAKES NO GUARANTY OR WARRANTY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, THAT THE ARLO EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES PROVIDED WILL DETECT OR AVERT SUCH INCIDENTS OR THEIR CONSEQUENCES. NETGEAR DOES NOT UNDERTAKE ANY RISK THAT YOU OR YOUR PROPERTY, OR THE PERSON OR PROPERTY OF OTHERS, MAY BE SUBJECT TO INJURY OR LOSS IF SUCH AN EVENT OCCURS. THE ALLOCATION OF SUCH RISK REMAINS WITH YOU, NOT NETGEAR."
I know it sucks man, but we all knew this from day 1 of using Arlo. I went in with eyes open, hope you did too.
Not Fixed is right. It takes 5 min to get the camera info....Then when you hit the live button the spinning wheel of death appears and the cameras never connect.
Someone needs to loose their job over this imo.
Arlo base offline. Called and was told I was going to receive an email when this problem was fixed. I was told Netgear was down. Has the problem been fixed?
I've had all the issues described here.
I just tried to reconnect my camera and all I get is: Disovering your device...Please wait...
It's still not working.
During the recent interruption in services (today march 8, 2018), the internet led indicator on my base station went blank (off), indicating loss of contact with the internet. I could not log onto my account and was not receiving push or email notifications. Then after a couple of hours (about 1pm est), services started working again. I got push notifications and emails, and I could log into my account and view clips and change mode. Everything seemed to be functioning again. Great.
But I notice that the internet led on my base station is still off. No blinking. Nothing. This is strange as I seem to have full functionality restored, and seem to be connected to the internet, and can save and view live and stored video.
Will the base station reset itself to fix the internet led indicator or will it require me to power cycle the base station?
I am still unable to connect cameras. Powder is on and connected to internet. Camera light on base station is Orange. Cameras will not sync. App says not connected. What's going on?
It's amazaing that some are threatening to return their systems. Have you every been late for work due to a car break down, flat tires, etc.? Should you be fired? Well, you should have a reliable car! Look, things happen sometimes out of a company's control, it's the day and age we live in with the technology. It's how they handle the situation. Take a deep breath and give them a chance, I am sure they have everyone on deck who could help resolve their issue.
Some of your customers? From the responses I have received on the community site it seems like all customers were affected. I have responses from all over the world. This does not inspire confidence in your product. My cameras have been alerting me all day yet the library does not seem to have as many clips. I will be changing my password directly. I hope nothing serious happened to anyone's property during this event.
Yeah its cool. Moved into a new Area, Today someone plowed my driveway which is watched by arlo but yet.... I have no freaking clue who did it because nothing was recorded. Thanks Arlo
