It's March here in NZ and still very few recording.  And zero showing on the counter. Two weeks and still waiting. I thought changing the batteries every 3 months @ $120 was annoying enough. I think it's time to sell my Arlo on Trademe. I bought it end of December last year.

Last summer I ordered 50 (we have 5 cameras) @$1.25 and free shipping.  I still have at least 30 left.  Best video setting.

Don't forget that all you have to do is to click on the Library tab to see your videos all at once.  I've never bothered with the counter - just superfluous noise for me.

 

As for batteries, maybe it's because NZ but you're spending an outrageous amount on batteries.  They should be able to be bought MUCH cheaper and then there's always rechargeables.  Have you checked online selers for batteries?  No way you should be paying that much unless the exchange rate is horrendous.

Here's the batteries I bought..I think they work well..from what I can tell the rechargeable batteries are lower mA which means they don't last as long in between changes..but I have not used them yet.. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003EOMVX8?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00

Thank you. I will look online to buy batteries  from outside NZ. They don't sell rechargeable batteries for my Arlo here. Camera 2 is going flat all ready. $15-$23 per 1 battery selling at the moment.  As for the video footage, it takes a long time to get back for viewing. Had motion go off but no videos to view.
