We would like to know if we can plugin the solar panel to an Arlo Go camera with an area of heavy activity and allow it to stay charged or do we need to go the extra expense of hard wiring AC to the units? We do not want to have to replace and recharge batteries but will invest in solar or hard wiring as an option if needed. We need the camera to be outdoors in varying weather conditions and it needs to connect to Verizon towers over a cellular network as wi-fi is not an option for the location.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

As long as you can get a few hours of sunlight per day I think you should be alright with the solar panels. My Pros after two or three days of cloudy weather wiil drop by about 10%, but it only takes about 30 minutes to charge them back up. I think I read that it takes about 3 hours of sunlight to fully charge the batteries from near dead.
I just bought and installed the 3-camera Arlo Pro system. Is the only option for storage a *mandatory* subscription to cloud storage to Netgear? I already have a NetGear ReadyNAS on my home network and also pay for Google Drive storage. I'm not going for some vendor-lock-in scam where I have to pay for cloud storage for these. Does this system work with BlueIris? If none of these are solutions, it goes back to Costco this weekend. It should be clear on the box that it requires a cloud subscription. I thought at least we could do local USB only.

All triggered videos and any videos you manually record will stay available for 7 days giving you plenty of time to store them, then after 7 days they disappear.. This free storage plan is indefinite for as long as you use your system. If you plug in some reasonably sized flash drives or hard drives into the USB slots in the Pro base station all the videos will be both saved to them and be recorded to the cloud. Someone could steal your base unit thus causing you to lose all stored videos, so save the important videos to your phone or computer as a third way to have saved videos.
I'm considering getting the Arlo Pro 2, but will only be able to plug in two cameras out of the five I want to install.
What I'm wondering is whether there's a difference between the base station you get with the Pro and the one you get with the Pro 2?
If I were to get the Pro base station and three cameras, would I then be able to add on two Pro 2 cameras to plug in and take advantage of the extra capabilities?
I brought my outside camera inside to charge it. It continues to give me a message that the battery is too cold. Outside temperature has been in the low 30s and low 40s the past 3 days. I've had the camera inside for about an hour. Is this normal?
Have 3 Arlo Pro 2 that I’m been using in default mode, i.e All Armed 24/ 7 till now.
Have now create a Custome Mode Test and Assigned it to Camera A only.
1. When I activate Custome Mode Test, what happens to the default Armed 24/7 for the other two cameras.? I can’t see where one can select both Modes at the same time? One can only select one mode at a time unless I’m misinterpreting how modes work, see attached.
2. Trying to play with scheduling but can’t locate anywhere in scheduling where I can apply time restraints to a specific camera only? See attached. What am I doing wrong?

So from the response,if I’m interpreting it correctly. All cameras have to be All Armed or Disarmed etc.. I can’t have one camera Armed 24/7 and another Armed at specific times only???
If you create a custom mode with the one camera in it and schedule either Armed or the custom mode for 24/7, then that one camera will always be armed while the other cameras will depend on what mode is running
Just changed batteries and my image is now 'foggy' and very unclear, was OK before the batteries required changing. It is now in a different location and still 'foggy' - I have taken out the batteries and reinserted. Then removed the batteries and removed the devices, reinserted batteries and re-synced camera, but still 'foggy'.Cleaned lens as well.
Was OK before I changed batteries now not OK. Any ideas or do I need to live with it?
Thanks for any replies.....Lyn
I can log on and view from my Android but from my laptop I can not. this started about 2 weeks ago. I have in the past looked at my home in the US from Mexico and from Canada and now I can not use my computer only my Phone. Now to make things more complicated I have a set of cameras on my parents house. I can view those cameras from either my computer or my phone at anytime from any location in the world. The set of cameras at my parents home was set up by my brother. I would like to fix the problem at my home. I get the NO CONNECTION notice, but switch to the phone and no problem. I have tried using CHROME AND FIREFOX. Both browsers do not work.

I recently installed 3 new Arlo Pro 2 cameras and I am new to this. Does anyone know how to adjust the motion detection perimeter within the viewing ranges? I don't want my front yard camera to detect the moving cars on the street. I only want it to detect when the cars and people entered the front yard perimeter. Thanks.

"A number of us use lower sensitivity during the day and higher at night." This is a good idea, but I don't see the sensitivity settings for day and night. Mine has only one sensitivity setting option, and I set it to 70%...
You create custom modes that have proper settings for the time of day. Once set up, place them in the schedule to automatically switch. There are FAQs here to guide you through creating custom modes and scheduling.
I've recently purchased the Arlo package and have 9 cameras running. We frequent one specific camera, one of the wireless Arlos, so that battery has naturally depleted.
I've recently picked up some rechargable batteries and after putting them into my camera, my system didn't recognize the new batteris and still said "replace batteries". I read that you need to fiddle around with the system a bit and re-add your camera, so I removed this camera from our system, but now it won't re-sync with the home base.
I've tried everything and can't seem to get this to work. The blue light just keeps flashing on the Arlo camera slowly. Doesn't matter what order I do it in (Push the sync button on the homebase, and then on the arlo, or sync the camera and then the homebase), and only a few times have I had the camera go to a rapidly blinking orange light.
Can anyone assist here? It really shouldn't be this hard and of course I'm now past my 90-days for technical support.

Well, I got it to work.
Through a series of trial and error, I first pressed the on/off button on the base, turning it off. Then I unplugged the entire base from the power for 30-seconds.
Once I plugged it back in, all of my cameras, including this one that I was having problems with, were back online and ready to go.
