1. Arlo uses SSID called ARLO_xxx. Now the thief knows all he has to do is to buy one of those chinese 10/20W wifi boosters which will disrupt all arlo communication.
2. Police does not accept camera evidence without timestamps.

Question: Is Arlo a security system or just a toy?

Do they really need to see an SSID to detect and disrupt your wifi? The villains won't be able to hack into it. It has no password that they can break.

There are several ways to get the "timestamps".

 

For example:

But it does take some faffing around.
