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.
Their silence on the issue is unbelievable... version 2.18 was not showing this issue...it is beyond me why they don’t go back to it while they find who can fix what the mess they created.
Arlo is a joke !
Arlo, you have to stop pushing updates. Your firmware just isnt good enough for this. You have to allow the user to make this choice, and you have to set up a beta testing regime, get people who opt in to test it before release..
You are a long long way from being able to just push out updates. You product just is no were near good enough..
I want someone to please shoot me in the head. I am so absolutely frustrated by all the intermittent connection problems. Sometimes it records, sometimes it records but then quits before the thief actually takes the package, sometimes it doesn't record at all, and now I get this message for 3 of my cameras that says "device not connected" although it detects motion about half the time.
Please shoot me. I might have to get another camera system. I am getting ulcers from all the constant issues, and I have a 235MB internet connection, and strong signal.
Arlo, get it together... Jesus almighty!
Need to look for an arlo alternative. Only reason I went with arlo is because I wanted a non wired battery camera for my front entrance. I have nest cameras inside and have been very happy with them.
Video quality isn’t as good but it has not has a single issue or problem so far. They are making a 4k version later this year that I will pickup. Worth a try for cheap entry to see if you like them. The Advanced subscription Is less than $2 /month too.
WTF is happening with Arlo today? Twice my online case for has been jettisoned by Arlo's online case form after completing it! My issue and complaint to Arlo is as follows - 'So, for the third time today - it appears that your online case system didn't complete on my earlier request - the iOS app that I use as my primary interface for the Arlo Pro system protecting my studio 2 miles from my house is not fucntioning properly since the last update on 24/08/20 (iPhone 8 System version: 13.6.1, Arlo, Version 2.19.2 (993) ) as when I open it, it says that 'Your device is not connected' when it plainly is as it disarms using Geofencing as it should when I drive down to the studio to fix the wifi (which isn't as it transpires broken at all). The Android app and online using my MacBook works fine, so please advise me what is happening with the iOS app and how we can remedy this issue. Thanks, Mac. PS - this online form doesn't appear to allow more than one upload, I have photos of the app screens if you want them, let me know where to email them.' Anyone else experiencing this? Best, Mac
Hey Arlo people, could you just fix this very annoying glitch in the matrix already? Maybe roll us back to the working iOS app / firmware? @JessicaP
You got you issues resolved yet buddy or had any response from Arlo?
I have been having connection problems since 4pm (UK) yesterday and all day today. Still unable to connect as of 10pm
Nothing wrong with my ISP only Arlo system affected.
I’ve also tried narrowing down the issue with full factory resets, resyncing from scratch, swapping batteries, etc. Their suggested change with the app uninstall/clean install and everything else I mention has only helped for maybe <24 hours (if even), then the problem comes right back.
The iOS app is useless right now and has been useless for almost a month. This needs a s/w or f/w fix depending on where the issue is.
If Arlo Support could comment further on a timeline for a fix, that would be fantastic.
Still having all these same issues.

Resolved my issue .... for now.
Sending complete system back to the vendor for a refund. Been having problems for months now but just within the year so I was lucky.
Final straw ... Arlo sent out replacement "refurbished" hub which failed after a few hours. Thanks Arlo.
I will probably re purchase once Arlo sort their sh*t out.
I worked out yesterday that I’ve sunk around £1,200 on Arlo hardware and peripherals, and an extra £8 a month on Arlo smart. Given that this is that latest in a long line of issues with my cameras, I genuinely wish I’d have spent that money on a professionally installed system.
If you’re reading this as you’re considering buying into the Arlo ecosystem, for the love of god, don’t.
Buy a bunch of cabbages instead.
I've just spoken with Arlo support and appears to be an issue with the Arlo mobile app. Advised they are working on a solution.
Rest assured the development team is working on a permanent solution for this issue, we will provide an update once that solution is available.
Rolling back to 2.18.1 fixes the problems people are experiencing with 2.19.2. But my iPhone is jailbroken so I have that option.
I bet Arlo are being used in as a case studies in business and product dev on how to completely destroy your product, your customer base, and company..
The incompetence is astounding.. Its just one failure after another.. for years..
Probably gonna jinx it now, but have had 4 days now without any "Your device is not connected" issues. There is still a 20 sec +/- delay on icon in camera view showing the right status (armed/disarmed), but I can edit mode upon entering the app.
Still on iOS app version 2.19.2 (993), I see that my Ultra Smarthub has been updated to FW 22.214.171.124_693_6cd3d19. Ultra cams are on FW 1.070.50.6_231_6e7e184, not updated recently (logged August 29th, same FW).
Anyone else seeing improvements with regards to fewer, or none, "Your device is not connected" issues?
Ok so no device offline since getting hub connected 2 days ago either however problems with video now on both cameras some snapshots in library show either grey or green window sometimes partial image.
