Best purchase ever

Wanted to begin sleep training and having 11mo baby in his own room. He has a Montessori style room w twin bed on the floor and a gate in the doorway. This app let me see exactly what he was doing while I did the Ferber method sleep training. This camera reports air quality, temp, humidity. I can set to that my phone, no matter if locked or using any app, is like a monitor and allows me to hear everything in his room countinuously on the speaker. When I sleep I leave the app open on the phone and at any moment in the night I can peek over and see exactly where and how he is sleeping, or if he has gotten out of bed and is sitting by the gate or playing in his play area. I can see and hear everything from absolutely anywhere. And I set up my mother as a user for when she babysits. Best purchase ever. During sleep training it has been invaluable because even though he is crying (which only lasted a couple Kin in first few nights), I can actually watch him and I know that he is okay. Alerts are awesome, alert for crying. Noise, and motion. Can adjust noise level to set off alert as well as amount of motion to set off. Comes in handy for when I don’t want an alert to come in when he turns over sleeping. It alerts if he crawls around his bed or out of his bed due to higher level of movement. Also, if the cat decides to meow outside of his doorway I get alerted before she can wake him to shoo her away!!

Good system. Sometimes devices go offline when updates occur. Been using for two and one half years.

Update after about 2.5 years of use: This app as well as the system, overall, has worked well. Although the cameras and lights sometimes, about every several months, go offline. It appears the devices tend to go offline when updates occur to the app or to the devices. We have an Arlo Go, Arlo cameras, and Alro lights at more than one property. Every several months we run into weird glitches where some devices go offline several times for a duration of a couple weeks and then everything is fine for another several months. This pattern has continued for the past 2.5 years. Overall, the app and the system is very convenient to use. And, we’d recommend Arlo in spite of the occasional glitches that cause devices to go offline. The batteries (non-rechargeable) in the Arlo cameras last us about 5-6 months unless there is heavy usage (a lot of traffic at the camera locations) in which case the batteries seem to last about 2-3 months. The battery (rechargeable) in the Arlo Go seems to last about 6 weeks. For us, it is very important to have a stable system that can be remotely operated reliably. Although there are some temporary glitches every several months which require in-person access to the system, it is very stable and reliable in-between the glitches. And, again, we would definitely recommend buying this system and using this app.

Glitches since day one

I have been using Arlo for over a year now. I have both version 1 cams and Pro version. It’s a great system overall. But there are some software and /or firmware issues that really annoy me because they could be fixed and I have written to support and nothing has been done about them.

The biggest annoyance is that when I simply open the app and sign in, one of my cameras starts recording as if it detects motion when there is nothing going on. It records at least 3-5 clips of motion every single time I open the app. Sometimes this happens with one or two other cameras as well. I know there is no motion because it is consistent every time I open the app. It does not happen when I open the viewer in a web browser and watch cams or recordings. Only when I open the Arlo app on my phone. This happened since day one. I have tried reconnecting cameras and base station and nothing helps. It really drains batteries and is annoying to weed through all these useless videos to see if anything happened.

Second major issue is that ever since I upgraded to ios11, when using the Arlo app my phone battery gets super hot and drains 20% in a matter of minutes. Arlo is the only app this happens with. Something about this version of Arlo does not play nice with ios11. Please fix this issue. I never drained phone battery like it does today. I could use it for hours. But now I can only use it for minutes before having to charge my phone. Please fix this!!!
