when is an estimated time that service will be resolved? cameras beings used for watch calving. I'm 30 miles away at work - I rely on this service to provide me views of cows in labor. If I loose a calf because of this poor service, I'll be very upset. hurry up and get it resolved. Thank you.
I have "Base Station Offline" is this related to the database service down? Or do I have another issue? I was connected to the internet yesterday.
Reply to mrcoop "Will another email be sent when it’s back up?? " I refer you to the Netgear email
1) "We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause." We've apologized so it's not our problem anymore
2) "To stay informed on further updates, please visit the Arlo community." Don't expect us to be responsible for any more customer information. Just check the hundreds of Arlo community messages.
Why not? Assuming you pay $150 a year for premium, that amounts to about $0.42 per day. I won't be happy until I'm compensated for that loss! Seriously, outages happen. A few hours may suck, but it's not the end of the world.
To those claiming that Netgear is somehow responsible for covering losses during a break in. If you're so concerned about a break-in, get yourself a real security system that is UL approved. Those are the ONLY systems approved to call emergency services and also receive insurance discounts. As cool as Arlo is, it really is just a DIY/Hobbiest system. No burgalar is going to be checking for platform outages, nor will likely be deterred by the presence of an Arlo sticker. The presence of a camera, working or not, is truly the only deterrent with a system like this.
Just to give you a different perspective. This one isn't about money. But for some of us - it is a big issue. My mother is dying and I work from home, so I use this to keep tabs on her and when she needs me. So - just before you get so superior on people complaining - realize there are very tough situations that this has impacted quite terribly. Maybe i did make a bad choice on the system..i thought i was doing the right thing.
And we are LIVE!!!!! appreciate the work to get us back online ARLO!! Now if i can just get some help to find out why i can't get the 2 way radio to work on my phone??
Well it seems to work for now but I want to express my frustrations and reiterate everyone else's. For a security device at high prices, we all expect better and especially would want an alert when there is a system or server down so we don't waste time trying to fix our router at home thinking the problem is on us.
I've set other homes up with this system and it was very embarassing for me when they had trouble disabling and kept tripping their alarm over and over. They had to eventually power off the base station. The feeling of being vulnerable without a fully accessible security system is even worse. Overall I like the product but this leaves a bad taste.
Please ensure that this never happens again.
Where is Arlo? What Arlo is saying about this problem???
