I cant get one of the cameras to connect. Seems to get recognised by the base station - but no live feed. I have rest both Base Station and Cameras. Taken Batteries out as per suggestions here. But to not avail.
I am losing faith in this system as from what I see many others have similar issues. Tried to engage with Support but keep getting cut off on the phone line - never end up speaking with anyone. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.
Does the camera show up in the app when you navigate to Settings > My Devices? Are you seeing an error message when attempting to live stream?
How far from the SmartHub is the camera and what does the signal strength icon show? If the signal strength is poor, this could be the reason you're having trouble streaming the camera.
What happens when you click live stream? Does the stream simply never load or do you see an error message? Does the camera still detect and record motion?
Does it behave this way regardless of the cameras location? For example, if you move the camera (temporarily) near to SmartHub (within a few feet) are the results the same?
I'm experiencing the exact issue described here. To add more details for my case.
- Like the initial poster one of my cameras works fine but the other is unable to show live feed (just see the wheel forever) or trigger alerts.
- I'm able to view a snapshot from the camera in the Activity zone setup. This snapshot updates each time i enter setup.
- Also the battery is very rapidly draining. (~20% in a day).
I had initial issues connecting this camera when I updated the base software before connecting the second camera. I reset the base to factory and set it up again. It worked until I was prompted to download a software update for this camera.
Is there a resolution to this issue that I can attempt?
The symptoms you describe could be related to poor WiFi signal strength. What does the signal strength icon show for the camera? You could isolate the issue further by swapping the location of the camera that works well with the camera the has the issue to see if the problem follows the camera or the location.
I have the same problem with 1 of my Arlo Ultra Camera. When i try to view the livestream im getting The device failed to connect. Please try again. I already factory reset the smart hub . Restart the Camera. still not working. Camera hardware version is H7. The two Alro Ultra Camera that still working is on Hardware H6. All camera firmware is update.
Only 2 weeks old...... But the Arlo Pro 3
Have 3 cameras, 2 are now no longer working.
Tried all of the above... Cameras were placed 3cm away from the unit And still fail.
Have now contacted support and sent a YouTube video showing the issue-
Awaiting a response before I send it all back for a refund and try other brands.
Very disappointed atm.
