Before last app update, every once in a while, the Arlo iOS app would report that my base station and cameras were offline, even though everything was up and running. After a few seconds, the app would cycle back to online mode.
After last app update, there is a lot of "Your device is not connected" errors, all the time. And it takes forever for it to cycle back to correct online mode. This is very frustrating when something is going on outside, and you can´t access a live video feed, when everything is connected and up and running.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Then thing I bet they have done an ‘upgrade’ and low and behold the latest iOS app is saying 19th Aug. Right when I started having problems!! Do you guys every actually do any beta testing before you release an update!!?!?!? For a premium subscription service it’s shocking compared to an ever growing market that don’t charge an utter fortune!
I am also having this problem since the latest update, however my partner is not. I have an iphone 6 and am on the most up to date IOS version which is 12.4.8. for that model phone. My partner has an iphone 7 and the up to date version for her is IOS 13.6.1
Could this be something to do with the problem?
I updated to latest Arlo software version 2.19.2 and all is working again. They also pushed out new firmware to 3 of my Pro cameras.
This issue should now be fixed on the the latest version of the Arlo iOS app, which is 2.19.2. Make sure to update to the latest version if you haven't done so already. You can read more about the latest version here: Arlo iOS App - 2.19.2 - 26th August 2020
If you're still experiencing this issue, please let us know.
Still not fixed. Cameras not connected when I open the app. Here we go again Arlo. Finally working after all the geofencing issues and now back to problems.
Ever since iPhone version 2.19 was released, I have not been able to access all my cameras live and I get a message that my cameras are off line, however when there is an event that triggers a notification, I get that on my phone but can't watch live what is happening and need to wait for the recording to finish and then see what happened. The same cameras consistently show off line all the time.
When I use the desktop web portal access, all cameras are there and working fine ( meaning I can select on any camera and see live video if needed ).
I opened case # 41880549 back on 8/20, two failed app releases ever since ( 2.19.1 and 2.19.2 ) and the problem still persists, even after following all of Arlo's support team troubleshooting recommendations.
I have tried on (3) different iPhones with the exact same failing result.
My setup consists of (2) Base stations for a total of (7) cameras: Arlo, Arlo Pro and Arlo Pro 2.
This problem can easily become a more serious one as Arlo cameras are one of the layers I use for safety and security of my home and family and so far, there is no fix or timeline for a fix.
I have requested Arlo to let me know how to install v2.18 or earlier but the answer has been there is no way to do that.
Not pleased with Arlo.
Guess what ..... yes another Arlo quick release that hasn’t fixed the issue.
Not working here either 2.19.2 build 993
This is getting ridiculous hope we are going to be compensated for this.
Just goes to show what a complete incompetent company Arlo is. I think your app development cabinet needs a reshuffle.
And I replied. It would've been a courtesy to inform me in your private message that my report was going to be consolidated with this message series.
Thank you to everyone who mentioned that the issue is still occuring. We've informed the development team about this and they're investigating the reports about this again. We'll be sure to provide any new information when we hear back from the development team. We appreciate your patience once again.
Netgear is the company who is incompetent. Had the same problem back when I tried to use Netgear modems and their lan cards for my computers. Their support was absolutely horrible, finally just threw away all their modems I owned, could never get them to work consistently.
Another issue with Arlo cameras is that I have giant tortoises and because they move slowly, the cameras do NOT pick up any motion when they walk around their pens. It picks up my little chickens and me but not the tortoises. The response to when I get a notice about any motion is so delayed that someone could have stolen my animals and be long gone before I would be alerted about it. Very poorly designed software. They need some intelligent IT team developers.
