I am also having geofence issues with my 5x Arlo Cam system. Firstly I do realize its a 'beta' mode, but probably the key feature in my purchase decision. So VERY IMPORTANT to FIX ASAP.
1) its armed even when my wife's mobile is home. She has full admin rights to system.
2) my mobile removed from 'devices' to avoid issues, but doesn't seem to matter.
3) should it not work when either/or any of the listed devices are home = disarmed? when ALL of these 'listed devices' are 'away' = ARM?
Thank you and please help. I love this system, but having to manually arm and disarm is super frustrating and not practical.
The app on both my wife's phone and mine are running in the background.
Simplistically the Arlo system should only ARM (cameras on; motion detection mode) when the home is empty; ie when we are BOTH away from home. Not when I am home or she is home or both are home. It simply doesn't do that.
Super glitchy and I for one am very disappointed that there's been so many posts on this issue for over a year now and Netgear still hiding behind the 'its beta' excuse instead of fixing this VERY IMPORTANT feature once and for all.
I've given up...
Bought the system about two weeks ago. Running on iphone. Geofencing works as deisgned on my phone, but on my boyfriends it is not disarming or arming the system based on his presence. It properly is indentifying when he is or is out of the zone, but the system only arms based on my presence. I have to go in and manually disarm or arm the system if he comes/goes seperatly than me. Please tell me there is a fix. He is operating on an iPhone as well, location services are enabled.
