Arlo Ultra Cameras Offline after new firmware update released. Was working well for months.
Two of my Ultra cameras went off line a couple days ago after months of good stability. After verifying nothing had changed on my end, and doing multiple base station reboots, just to see if it would help, I decided to check to see if Arlo's firmware release notice page mentioned any recent firmware updates. Indeed it did! It only mentioned bug fixes with the Ultra base. Bug fixes is not helpful information. In the past, I would always go through painful testing and research before realizing that Arlo posted a base update and apparently broke something in the process. Now I'm wondering how long it will be before enough people complain and the problem gets fixed. Good Luck everyone!
We have not seen any reports where users are experiencing their Ultra cameras going offline after the new firmware update released. Check your signal strength for your cameras and make sure that you have three to four bars of signal strength in the area.
If you have one or two bars, they might go offline intermittently due to the fluctuations in the environment. Make sure to place your cameras closer to the SmartHub or have your SmartHub closer to your cameras.
You can also read here to learn how to troubleshoot when your cameras are going offline: My Arlo wire-free camera is offline; how can I troubleshoot it?
I was wondering the same. I have always seen max three bars possible in IOS and Web. When I have two bars on one cam the third bar is greyed out. I never saw a fourth greyed out bar.
Not sure if that is the way the older cams are though.
I have same problem but have 3 base stations, they are up and down like a you yo since firmware update, raised a case but no response yet
Jessica - yup happening here to. Will just go offline and then come back in a few mins. Sometimes go offline then back on and back off again then work fine for 3/4 hours and do it again. The firmware is the only change to my system.
