Why doesn't my Arlo continue to record after the 'subject' starts moving again. When it sees a motion, it will record; then stop recording when the motion stops, but doesn't start recording again when the motion starts up again!

Hi @Toni1946,


Try to raise the sensitivity on your motion detection to make sure your camera can detect motion. You can read here on how to change the sensitivity: How do I change the motion sensitivity on my Arlo camera? 


You can also try testing with the motion detection test to make sure it detects motion properly. You can read here on how to use this test: How do I use the motion detection test for my Arlo device?

Nope, didn't work. Sensitivity is up 100% and it still didn't resolve my issue.

Obviously, the camera has to be able to detect the renewed motion. What you see isn't necessarily what the camera can detect, whether due to distance, speed of motion or whatever.
