Geofencing broke 3-4 days ago

3-4 days ago my geofencing went crazy.  I woke up in the morning and Arlo had switched from Home to Away 65 times throughout the night.  Whenever I'm away, geofencing works just fine.  However, when I'm home, it toggles between Home and Away multiple times.  


My geofencing is set up to Away (all cameras on) when I'm Away, but then on Schedule when I'm Home.  The Schedule turns only outside cameras during the night.


It appears that when I'm home and I get up to go the kitchen, geofencing switches between Home and Away.  I have an apple watch.  I read where Arlo added support for apple watch, could this be the reason?  Faulty programming?

Hi @rwright727


Have you tried to reboot your base station & remove re-install the Arlo Mobile App? What version of the app are you using?
