As you can see my dog was in the backyard yet the video is grey. Any thoughts on how to fix?

It's only slightly grey at the very beginning for a second. That's just the camera adjusting to the lighting.

I view this as unacceptable.  It doesnt do me any good to have security cameras if they detect motion but the video is not visable.  This started with the last update.

Hi mountaindewbass,

 

Try to adjust the flicker adjustment (50/60) and see if it will make a difference. If the issue still persist, it is best to contact our support to further troubleshoot the issue.

 

 

Kind regards,

You do know that images will appear grey (black and white) when the lighting is low and IRs kick on right ? Your 1st video shows no grey. Your 2nd and 4th are grey due to ambient lighting. The 3rd video is not grey...

No bro. The last video has a green streak that takes up half the video ...that's not related to the ir

Hello mountaindewbass,

 

According to our data center report, 2 of your cameras have firmwares that are not updated. I can give you the names of the cameras through PM, please update the firmwares and see if the issue will be fixed. Please refer to this link.

 

 

I'll be waiting for your response. 

 

Thanks,

I know what you mean.. I get it also once in awhile.. It might be something to do with upload when capturing a video.. There could be a glitch somewhere from your internet upload speed or Arlo's Server.. Check your Upload/Download speed to make sure it's sufficient under Arlo's recommended 1MB Upload.. http://www.speedtest.net

 

The camera I have that's causing this issue is setup the farthest.. so it's prolly' not getting a good signal..

One of the signs, other than the actual signal meter on the cam live view, is the cam LED on the base... if you get any flashing on the base, the cam is at the range limit.

True, Am within range with full bar signal, In my case I think I wasn't really getting the thru-put.. Also, I believe it's alot to do with interference and walls & so on when camera is setup farther away.. Maybe it's my ISP or Arlo's Server having a hiccup.. The recent Arlo's server issues surely have impacted my system to do some hiccup.. Right now..it's all good.. I hope it stays this way..
