If there is one purchase I regretted over the year it is that Arlo system I bought. Sorry but a CCCTV system has to be reliable. Arlo is not! It doesn't even show a Date Time stamp in the videos. Anyways ....


One of my cameras (let's call it Camera A) is draining the battery in a week. It was fine since I bought it but suddenly started. I use Netgear recommended rechargeable batteries. I swapped batteries with a "good" camera (Camera B), no difference, still the batteries from Camera B put into Camera A only lasted a week in Camera A. The batteries I took out of Camera A whcih drained them in a week lasted for months in Camera B. I moved camera A to a new location (I just put it on an outdoor table) no difference. Still drains batteries in about a week compared to months with the other cameras.


Base Station Hardware Version: VMB3010r2 (Different to what I stated above since this wasn't available in the drop down)

Base Station Firmware

Camera hardware version HW11

Camera Firmware Version 1.3.319 (same as other 3 cameras)


Is there a way to set the camera back to factory settings? Or anything else which  could help?


Thanks in advance

Remove the camera from Settings, My Dev ices and resync is the only way to try to resolve. Otherwise, contact support:
