Arlo Ultra 2 No Longer Detects Animals! Renewed Smart. Tried reinstalling.
My initial Smart detect trial period just expired. I renewed so this isn't an issue.
About 45 days after I bought the Arlo Ultra 2 the system stopped detecting animals, day or night. It was very iffy in the first place but nothing at all now even with raccoons crawling around everywhere at night. The raccoons are so bad that they are swinging on our humming bird feeders in front of the cameras and still no trigger to start a recording.
I pulled down each camera, cleaned the face and lense, and reinstalled them. Still nothing. Even people triggering the recordings is very undependable.
There sure are rules for these cameras. They're in the Mode card. Read the FAQs here in the support section about changing sensitivity settings as well as creating custom modes for full control. Loots of good reading there so you get exactly what you need.
