Hi @KBrooks

 

Is this occurring on the Web Portal or the Arlo Mobile App?

All good this side. There was a problem a couple of days ago which seemed to resolve itself. The videos were being recorded just were not appearing in the library.

Try logging out and back in, also try restarting your base.

Anybody having issues with the cameras not sending notifications or recording today? I have not seen any notifications or recordings to the library since last night.

What are the issues you are having ? I would recommend a hardwired system for more serious security and monitoring needs. I now have both

Did you bill Arlo for the wired camera? Seems since you had to supplement then they should pay for the camera 😆. My base seems like it is connected and live connections work, but the cameras aren’t recording.

Just had the same problem. Notification of recording but nothing when you go to the library.

Fixed it by erasing my Chrome history on the phone and then everything was back to normal. I guess if you have more than 1 browser on your device, it would pay to clear both.

Check your Mode settings , they are a bit convoluted, "if camera 1 detects motion" then camera 1 records" hit the pencil to edit and hit save

Whatever time the new "null" v "no subscription at this time" hit my particular camera set up this evening, it cleared up, restored, worked as normal. I wonder how many people bought a plan when it was not working and said " null". That's pretty dirty. The only problem i have has been an ongoing problem...only 3-4 weeks at most, out of 26ish weeks have my push notifications worked. Those 2 times were after an update but it didn't last long. I've tried everything, read everything. Clicked and re clicked and kicked notications. On my phone in set up, on home screen shortcuts, in arlo app settings on my phone and my tablet and of course the app in a couple of places etc. My tablet use to get them more than my phone but no more. Anyhoos...maybe it will magically start working as its suppose to one day as well...for free! That'd be awesome!

The videos for each camera are not being saved on the website interface but can be viewed on phone.  Usually I can go to the website then click on the specific camera and select the day to view all the videos for that day.  As of this morning no videos are being saved via the website interface but I can view all the videos on my iphone...is the website down and Arlo is just not notifying us?  Thanks

My problem is similar but different. On the website, I can view all videos from all cameras but in the IPhone App, I can only view the most recent recording. This happened within the last 24 hours when the App was updated to version 1/17...

Yes. It all started with the version 1/17 app being updated from the Apple store on 1/23. I spent 3 phone calls to Arlo support to prove it. No resolution yet

Correction. Recording is okay but only storing the most recent video for each camera.

We are have an odd glitch regarding the video library (on the mobile app - have not tried on web). I think they are being "stored", but no matter which day or which video is selected to play, it plays only one video - usually the most recent one. If the active video is swiped to the left the previous videos will appear, but if selected directly from the main library page, only the one video plays, regardless of which time stamp was chosen. This has been happening for at least several days.

Regarding the issue of missing library videos after the advert pops up has been previously mentioned on the forum. It has occurred to me on all my devices running the arlo app using my login. If I close the App wait a few minutes and reopen the app the videos reappear. I also get the missing videos on the library issue randomly when using the app, again restarting the App gets them back.

Called support on the 23rd for my video library missing 23 days of recordings. They stated it was a tech issue. They gave

me a case number and that's it. In no way did they explain how to get them back, how long it will take or anything else. Support seemed rushed to get off the call. A "Here is your case number.....Goodbye" kind of Call.

ARLO / NETGEAR - IT'S BEEN 3 DAYS (for me at least)  ... PLEASE GIVE YOUR CUSTOMERS A REASONABLE RESPONSE TO THE QUESTION OF YOUR FAILURE TO MAKE AVAILABLE RECORDINGS OF JANUARY'S FOOTAGE ON OUR SECURITY CAMERAS.

I posted 3 days ago that my recordings for January had disappeared - Post "Recordings have gone and are disappearing from Library every day! Arlo Pro wireless cameras"  My post was followed (and amalgamated) with a few other 'initial' questioning posts about the same issue.  Of the 92 posts so far, most people seem to have relied on your '7 day free' icloud storage - which obviously failed, and you didn't take responsibility for the failure.  

I purchased an extra icoud account, - and this failed also!!  

If you have changed your billing policies, so be it, but to change them and not advise your customers of their  choices/rights/options with your company  ..... IS SIMPLY BAD BUSINESS!  

I hope you can correct this.  I have enjoyed the superior technology, and ease of use, your company has provided to me so far.  I was thinking of adding to my system .. but will make that decision based on your response .....

My recording were all gone this morning as well, but stangely they were still available on my phone.
I cleared my cache and all my recordings returned.

If like me you use Chrome, enter this line into your browser address bar:


chrome://settings/cookies/detail?site=arlo.netgear.com

 

Then click Remove All

What has helped recently is for you to clear the cache for your browser.

 

The iOS app is a totally different issue which has multiple threads on it already.
