Hello Arlo community!
I have an Arlo Video Doorbell AVD1001 and integrated it via W-LAN.
The recordings are working correctly, but if someone rings the doorbell and you want to speak to that person, there is a delay of 5 to 10 seconds - unusable communication.
Video Doorbell has full wireless reception (2 m away) and the upload speed to the Internet is 20 Mbit - download 160 Mbit.
I've already reduced the video settings - no success
I have had the difficulty with communicating through the doorbell. No sound. Or maybe it is not loud enough. In any event no one can hear my voice. Any suggestions?
There will always be a certain amount of latency (delay) when dealing with anything digital or internet related. Several factors will affect this: router, ISP, traffic on your connection, and Arlo. The sound has to travel to your router, through the internet, and back. My system gets latency from 2 to 8 seconds, just depends on the day and time.
5 to 10 second Audio delay makes audio communication frustrating and impractical. I have +100Mb internet service and a solid mesh wifi system in home -- that's not the problem!
Delays can be frustrating, as are other things like an app that sucks. Consider where that signal goes and it's not that bad. Camera to router to modem to cloud back to modem to router then to your device.
