Re: RESOLVED - Arlo Service Down - Temporarily Unable to Login
I don't know the status of your system, but firstly, I would remove the batteries and then reinsert them. This should cause them to reset and try to communicate with the base station. If that doesn't work, tell us what else is going on with your system, especially with the lights on your base station.
I think I misunderstood you. You said Arlo Pro cameras, but now that I think about it I think you were referring to the Arlo Go cameras. Try removing the batteries and reinsert them. This should reset your communications, hopefully.
Sorry for the misunderstanding,
Arlo was down on 3/8/18 for half a day. Email saying it was restored 2:47pm on 3/8.
It is now 3/9 and the "My Arlo" still does not open. Is there a reset that needs to be done, or is it at your end?
Arlo does not read this forum. JamesC who is the site moderator does read it and passes pertinent info on to Arlo. But, there are some of us Arlo owners that do try to help people with problems to resolve their issues quicker than waiting for Customer Support.
Please tell us where you are having problems, loging in? App not showing any devices, etc.?
For a start, what are the lights on your base station showing? Have you tried to power off the base station for one minute then powering it back up and letting the system reboot?
Just before I noticed the outage yesterday, there was a post saying that Arlo had updated its web page and gave instructions on how to correct the issue on Google Chrome. I wiill try to find that post and give it to you, but in the meantime, the easiest way to resolve this is by deleting your browser history from the beginning. The issue is an issue with "cookies," but for me deleting the cookies did not fix it. I deleted all my browsing history.
It may not matter, but what country are you in?
What Arlo system are you using?
Is it down on both your mobile device and your web browser?
What are the lights on your base station showing?
Have you tried powering the base off for 1 minute then powering it back up and letting it reboot?
Have you tried removing the batteries from the cameras and reinserting them?
One thing you can try is to go into your mobile app to settings>My Devices and select your basestation. At the bottom of the page is a Restart button. You can try that and see if it works.
Also be advised that if you are using Google Chrome to see your system, you will probably need to either delete all the cookies or better yet, delete your browsing history to be able to see your system. You can use another browser, though.
I did the reset, now nothing works! The cams wont sync, the rhs orange light id flashing. I have been trying for a while now, the cams wont sinc. They go through the process then i get an orange lifgt. I have taken all the batteries out and back in.
I have been at this for 24 hours now, its going in the garbage soon!
I am going to recommend at this point to remove all your devices from your system and do a factory reset using a paper clip to the tiny button on the back of your router and then start all over as a New system. Here is an article on how to do that.
The link on how to set the system up as a new system is a link near the bottom of the article.
If this doesn't work contact Customer support at the green banner near the bottom of this page.
It's a pro2 with 3 cams and a base station. Normally the 3 green lights on the Base station are green when the system is working. Since reset the third or right hand side light is solid orange. When i try to sinc a cam it goes flashing green and then goes back to solid orange.
Fully restored, I think not, after the database went down yesterday and came back later last night, it gave me camera access but had wiped out my zones and still won't let me create new ones, also the alarm is still missing as a device, and same results on multiple PC's, not mobile.... WTF Netgear...?
Please add your comments to this post as others are having the same problems:
It probably was the app updates that happened yesterday.
