So I've had this once before and miraculously it was all fine the next morning. BUT this time all cameras and base station have been offline for two days so far... I have re-synced all cameras successfully, rebooted hub and router, all three required lights on hub are green. Can access internet via alternate devices. All seems to be working well apart from I can no longer see the camera feeds from the mobile app???

Same problem here. Can log in to my account from desktop computer and see cameras live but no recordings after 3:26am today and I cant get cameras through mobile device. Mobile app says cameras offline and to check internet. I know the internet is working and all the lights are green on base station. I think it must be a ARLO problem. Any one else have these issues?

Yeah mine as well. The Base says offline I have restarted everything but nothing seems to fix the problem. No push notifications or anything.

I have Arlo Wire free security camera. Everything was working good last night but today when I go to my app and click on mode it says it’s offline. The base says it’s connected to the internet and when I went outside I saw the res light turn on that is on the camera. I can’t figure out how to get it to start working again. I’ve tried shutting off the base and turning get back on but that didn’t help. Any ideas on how to get it back up and running?

We have been offline all day also. Unplugged and repliugged around 5:30 and it worked for a short time but we are offline again. I’m guess it’s a product issue by reading this. Has anyone tried tech support?

I spent a couple hours with Arlo support tonight and they finally confirmed an issue on their end.  Customer support rep stated that engineers are actively looking into the issue.  

 

I'm in the same boat as most posts I've seen today - multiple browsers and the iOS app shows base station and all cameras as offline.  I've power cycled modem, router, and arlo base multiple times.  It's been offline since I woke up this morning.

Same here.  What gets me is mine is down but my mother inlaw's right up the street from me is working. I have reset everything and still nothing.  If this keeps up I might have to look into a different system.

Still no fix from Netgear? all green lights but offline.  When I bought this system, I had hoped it to be internet based as it is but did not expect this heavy reliance on Netgear nor the huge failures of their servers

Same issue and I’ve rebooted numerous times. After rebooting the three lights all go free after about a minute,

I have tried the app on my iPhone, iPad, Mac at work, PC at home. All show the status as either Getting Status or Getting Information then all change to Offline after about a minute. (Likely a timeout).

i hope this gets resolved soon.

I had to remove the base station from My Devices then reinstall the base station and cameras. Working fine now. Had to do it from a computer not the phone app.

Because it takes so long to put a message on the board to notify folks of a update! Wow! Thanks Arlo!

Well, that explains it. At least it saves me a phone call. It is very disturbing that the company that could potentially affect so many users would do such a change without notifying anyone. I almost suspect they are having DDoS attack on their servers than an actual update. An update of this magnitude should have been done in phases with little impact on consumers. 

 

Bad form NETGEAR.

We have been offline since the 14th at 9pm. We have rebooted, resynced, uninstalled, reinstalled. The lights indicate that things should be working but when you login from my work PC, macbook or mobile app I cannot view the live feed and the staus is "Getting Information" 

Am I missing anything aside from just scraping the system? We use this as a nanny cam and front door monitoring, so a long term outage is not acceptable.

As per the chat session I had I got told engineering is working on it. This is going to cost them big time on customer satisfaction. We should all demand credits for this

They did the update during the night 3\14\18. My base and cameras are still offline. They told me through  messenger to delete browser and app cache, did that, still nothing. I told them it didn’t help but that was 2 days ago still no response. I have a lot of money sunk into these cameras, batteries, and subscription. I’ve used them for a couple of years and never had any problems till around 6 months ago and then almost every day Ive had at least 1 camera down.

Yeah I had the usual troubleshoot steps I told them it’s not the app or the web but them. It’s crazy an outage should not take this long to resolve I bet they screwed up a database migration or update.

Interesting that the chat agent did tell me they could see my system was online so there is something broken for sure if parts of their systems see an online status and others don’t
