I have had my Arlo System for 6 months. I have had to change the batteries 3 times already. The last time I changed them was a month ago and have not used the system at all. Today all 3 of my cameras are blinking red (dead batteries). Is anyone else having to change all the batteries all the time?

Signal strength/quality is the usual suspect. You're not turning the base off, right? That would cause the batteries to die quickly. Define what you mean by not using the system at all.

No, I am not turning the base off. I use the system for my in home daycare in 3 rooms. When I am not in a room but a kid/kids are in that room I use the app to watch them. I have had a helper the last month so I haven't had to use the app. I do not have the motion sensor on either. The first couple of months I had the system I used the app multiple times a day. I am just curious why batteries don't last that long exceptionally when your not using it.
