Hello.

 

Is it true that one could use a wifi jammer to knock out Netgear Arlo's wireless connection?

 

Thank you in advance. 🙂

Since the cameras operate on 2.4ghz /standard 802.11n it is possible. But I wouldn't get overly worried bout it

Its VERY true if some one wanted to spend the cash.  We have them in our test labs, a good handheld unit costs 600.00+

yes... use to play around with jammers back in the day,  cell phones/wifi.   Brief case units putting  out 10-100 watts with directional patch antennas.  You didn't want to stand in front of those without shielding on certain body parts ! 🙂

Very expensive back then , not so much now tho... But I don't consider them a real problem... there are other simpler ways to defeat systems.

I agree. Arlo doesn't work.

Just stood in front of my problem camera. It indicates motion. It shows nothing!

Need more details.  What shows motion? Are the running men black or gray?  What mode do you have selected? Does live view work?
