Our cameras are used in a warehouse/flex space (officespace and the rest is warehouse space - please refer to my diagram). We have them on a schedule and they do activate when armed but the two cameras inside the warehouse always go offline.
Cam 1: directly outside the main entrance, 7 ft high.
Cam 2: Above roll up door, 15 ft high
Cam 3: It has always been in the same general area ranging from 7 ft to 15 ft high - goes offline in every spot.
Cam 4: Has also been in the same general area and couple feet further back, 13 ft to 15 ft - goes offline in every spot.
Has anyone experienced this problem and found a solution? Please help!

Ok, my assumption was wrong. You should swap cameras between working and non-working cameras. That would help define that it's a location issue, which I now suspect it is.
300 feet is a "perfect world" scenario. In a residential setting, 50-100 feet is more typical. In your more industrial setting, the building construction is likely the cause although 2.4GHz interference is possible. Metal in the walls (ductwork, structural beams, etc.) will simply block the signal while 2.4GHz interference can be due to any wireless device such as microwave ovens, cordless phones, etc.
A possible solution could be to use a second base for those 2 problematic cameras so they are closer and have no or fewer obstructions in the signal path.
This is terrible that you have to retype the password everytime you use the App on android. It didn't use to be this way. If this is a security issue, there has to be a better way. Tons of apps stay logged in. It's really quite unusual not to. What's worse, the login disappears after as little as 20 minutes. That's just crazy. It borders on unusable.
There also used to be a feature where the password would be in the type buffer on the login page, and all you would need to do would be to press login. That wouldn't be so bad, but that has disappeared too.

All my apps, firmware, OSes, browsers, etc. are up to date. The apps automatically log in. Every time. You have a local problem that may be fixed by restarting the the phone and/or reinstalling the app.
I have 3 cameras on my arlo pro. One of the three I would like to schedule to motion record when we're not home, the other two I'd like to record on motion 24/7. Is there a way to do this? I found this article
but when I click on mode, "my devices" just shows the arlo base station and not the individual cameras as the article implies.
other posts in the community say to create a new mode and add the camera you want to schedule, and then schedule it in the new mode and add the other cameras, but once I add the camera I want to schedule there doesn't appear to be a way to schedule it.
Any simple way to acheive what I want to do? Thanks!

In order to split your cams up, you have to break them into smaller groups with a new custom mode.
For the times you want the 2 cams and the 1 cam to record ( when your out ) just us the ARMED choice... all cams will be active.
For the two cams you want active all the time say called Outside., split them into a custom mode. Add A MODE, add the first camera and save. Go back and edit the new outside mode to add the second camera.
Use this mode when home, just use Outside ( no need for schedule at all )
Is Arlo down? I cannot log in. I have tried on multiple devices. It was a working a few hours ago. Queen Creek, Arizona
I've been having low battery indication on most of my cameras since I first bought them over a year ago. I have 5 cameras. All outside with silicone covers on all. Batteries fresh out of charger @ 100% but cameras show much, much lower. I read on here where someone took a pencil eraser and cleaned the contacts and it worked for them. I did the same on one camera and WHA-LAAA!!!! It worked! Then I went to another camera, did the same and no luck. I then took the eraser to all of the battery contacts as well and DA-DA-DAAAA!!!! Now shows 100% on that camera as well. I will be doing this to all of my cameras and batteries. Hope this helps others and THANK YOU to that person (Golear) who initially shared this info.
Looking at purchaing the Arlo Pro 2. Was wondering if anyone has tried to power it via power bank and unlock the advance features of the pro 2 such as 3-second look back, activity zones, etc?

Here's one of the several discussions on the theme:
Get the power supply right and it works fine.
I live in Arizona and just recently purchased the Arlo Camera system. I've logged into the App all day yesterday and earlier today. Now when I login it just keeps trying to login but doesn't actually login in. I'm unable to view my cameras or get notifications. Is there an a system issue in Arizona?
Does anyone know if the arlo servers are down? I can log in to the app but my base station and cameras appear to be offline. The lights on the base station indicate that it is connected to the internet. This has been going on for two days now.
We have no access to arlo app from various devices. anyone else?
Arlo servers are down. That's one heck of a security system fellas. I'm sending mine BACK NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
