New issue (one of the very many): following the disastrous firmware update resulting in SD storage problems (see Arlo HD section on the discussion), my Ultras that are furthest away from the SmartHub are showing a remarkably worse battery life. Each is now discharging at 1-2% per day, whereas previously, it was 1-2% per month, as they're rarely used.

 

I'm sorry, but this can't carry on like that that there are constant issues with this system.

Hi @ShayneS 

 

No problem. Give me a few days to gather data and I'll contact you via PM with the email address associated with my account.

 

In the meanwhile, I got this message while trying to reset one of the cameras to improve a battery life.

 

Cheers. 

PS Will be happy to send the numbers that I obscured in the photo

I can confirm it's 2% per day, regardless of whether the camera is used or not. The other *unusual* thing is the solar panel will only charge up the battery up to 99% and no more.

 

How much beta testing of your system should I continue to be doing? When will you finally release a version of both firmware and software that won't have any issues? It's relentless and tiring.
