For some reason it's saying my ac adapter is disconnected and I want to know what it is and why

Asked by Rufusmom March 28, 2021

Answers

I have found that the connector for this (mini-usb) is a bit more particular than my other Arlo cameras. Sometimes I find the adapter part that plugs into the outlet leans too much to connect as well, so I would use a flat multi-port extension or surge protector to allow the plug to sit more upright.

It can be powered by it's own battery. You have to take it down and charge is with it's provided USB cable. No tools needed and it's easy. I charge mine about every 30-40 days. There is a solar panel and wiring available but I haven't seen them for sale at Home Depot. Next week my free 30 day trial will expire. I can't speak for the post 3 month period. I hope that helps

I've had the worst time with Arlo solar chargers and the online reviews of them claim the same issues for many - mine worked perfectly in the beginning but started giving errors after a very short time - I tried many things to troubleshoot it but it never resolved - it wouldn't recognize the connection at one point. It was so frustrating to continually climb a ladder to deal with it - I finally threw in the towel - what's worse - I had it longer than the return period - so I was stuck with this expensive piece of poor technology. I really wanted it to work (moreover, I needed it to - it was monitoring my rural property, 55 miles from my full-time residence) and if it did - the Arlo set-up would be really amazing.

Arlo says 6 month battery life, but mine only lasts 6 days.

Bright floodlight!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a really great security system to have. The floodlight is really bright and the brightness is adjustable. Set up was really easy. Download the app and the app walks you through the whole process. Installing the floodlight was easy. 3 screws and it was up. You will need to purchase a cable for the floodlight that will keep the floodlight and camera charged at all times. The cable will be a long cable that attached to the bottom of the light and then you plug it into a receptacle. The app has a ton of customizable features for the security system and the floodlight. The video quality of the recorded videos is really good. We have ours set to record motion. So when if records motion it will zoom in on the motion. It comes with a 3 month subscription to store your video recordings.

poor battery life
Its smaller than it looks, and offered less than i expected. It works but not for long. I find myself charging the battery every 4 days. Its constantly disconnecting from my wifi signal, and the operating through the app can sometimes take a minute of or two. I expected longer battery life and a power cable to connect

Very nice light/camera combination. You need an app to operate this camera. App installation is easy. Connecting to the camera for set up is just as easy. Physically installing the camera couldn't have been easier either. Just pick a location, grab a ladder, and only three screws later it was installed. I like that it has a very wide field of view that is adjustable. I like that it zooms in and follows whatever it is tracking on camera. This helps with identifying the object on film camera. Two drawbacks: the camera operates via rechargeable battery. You can buy an optional solar charger and connect it to the camera OR when the battery gets low you get your ladder, remove the battery, recharge it, climb back up the ladder, and finally reinstall. The video is clear. Recorded audio is pretty good. The connectivity between the app & your wi-fi camera is slow, but that may be my network. I have a lot of wi-fi devices. The app isn't very intuitive. With purchase you get a free trial to a cloud storage service for the video. It's only a few dollars a month to maintain the cloud service. I'd buy another Arlo product.

Great camera that provides excellent coverage for my driveway. Integrated with my Arlo 2 system with only one small glitch in the app that I mostly figured out but occasionally have trouble. I might need to upgrade my existing system to match the quality of this camera. Battery life is outstanding and the light feature really lights up my driveway with 2 cars deep. In my picture, you can see the floodlight along with one of my original Arlo Pro cameras for comparison.

I got this two-camara wireless set to supplement two older camera systems of a different brand (o...
I got this two-camara wireless set to supplement two older camera systems of a different brand (one wired, one wireless). The cameras have a built-in “spotlight” (i.e., this is not the floodlight model). Here’s my take: Installation: 1. The Arlo camera is much easier to install. It is almost entirely “plug and play.” The initial installation process from start to finish took literally 15 minutes. Additional time was spent to understand the customized settings, operation and battery maintenance. 2. Camera mounting is exceptionally easy. Battery powered wireless operation means no wires to route. Two different mounting options were provided -- one that secures the camera housing to a magnetized concave mounting, and the other that secures the camera mount to a surface using traditional screw fasteners and a thumb screw to attach the camera to the mount. Each mount is easy to adjust to achieve a good camera viewing angle. Easy mounting means easy dismounting as well. So, unless these are mounted out of reach, there is the potential they might be stolen. For example, a passerby could take a swipe at the body of the magnetic mount using an umbrella to dislodge the camera body from its magnetic perch before walking away with it. Depending on the mounting location selected, use of a more theft-resistant mounting bracket might be advisable. Operation: 1. Picture clarity – daytime viewing is outstanding, night-time viewing is poor, particularly if there is little ancillary outdoor lighting. I like that the camera view can be adjusted in the App, from a standard field of view to a wide angle. However, the cameras built-in “spotlight,” is more like a penlight – and although it improves the picture modestly, it is woefully insufficient. In pitch black, it was possible to make out structures and silhouettes, but little else. My wired camera has better night vision. 2. When motion-activation is set, there is about a 5-second delay before the motion-activation trigger displays the live view. Once activated, live motion was smooth and pleasant to view. The short delay seems to be a characteristic of wireless cameras, as this delay is not present in my hard-wired system. 3. If there is no action present within the field of view, or if the camera is operated in a “live viewing” mode (i.e., motion-activation is disabled by the user), the camera connection will terminate after about 10-15 minutes of inactivity. There is no warning provided by the App before the connection terminates, and the ability to restart the camera in the App is frozen during this period. Instead, the camera stays inactive and eventually reboots itself after about 3 – 5 minutes. Only after the reboot, can the user manually restart the camera live view. This intermittent termination of streaming seems to be programmed into the product (perhaps for battery-conservation purposes?); however, if you are relying on this device to monitor activity in real time this may be a concern. 4. Many of the App settings are not intuitive to use or understand. I found it necessary to refer to the Arlo online site for help – and it was moderately useful. For example, “arming” (or disarming) the system to initiate motion activation of the camera is done through the “Mode” tab. Adjusting the degree of sensitivity required to trigger the motion-sensing, is done at the “Settings” tab, and then testing the degree of motion sensitivity once it is set, is done at the “Device Settings Tab.” These tabs are each located in different places in the App. The sensitivity selection choices at the Settings tab are: “people/vehicles/animal/all other” rather than an expected “high/medium/low” description for a level of sensitivity. I had a difficult time discerning the difference in how these different settings were designed to work, and the App provided no description. I noted that small movements of leaves blowing in the wind generally did not activate the sensor. Why these related motion detection settings, are placed in different unrelated tabs on the App is anyone’s guess. As the motion detection function is critical to preserving battery life, and local storage space (when used), there should be an easier way to access and operate this function. 5. The audio was somewhat faint even when set at a high volume. A variety of App settings are present to enable or disable the audio, the microphone and/or the speaker. These are nice features provided the target is physically close enough to the camera location to recognize sound. 6. There is a “siren” on the camera that can be activated through the App, but in my view, it was not loud enough to be heard at a distance. So, whether it is effective to startle or deter something or someone near the camera location, is questionable. But I suppose nothing ventured, nothing gained. 7. The product comes with a complementary 3-month Arlo subscription that allows users to archive and retrieve recorded video. Thereafter, a monthly fee applies. The hub has a USB port for insertion of a thumb drive. Rather than describe the many steps I took to record on this local storage device, suffice it to say that the process was anything but user friendly, and required an extensive search of the Arlo website for information. The process involves access of the recording via the Cloud using the Arlo App. I was able to see that the recorded files were present on the thumb drive but unable to play them directly on my laptop – instead they have to be accessed through the Cloud using the App. Will this access exist if my subscription expires? Who knows? According to website information, local storage is restricted to recording video that is triggered by motion or sound; actions not otherwise triggered by sound or motion settings will not be recorded locally. For most folks, limiting a recording to triggered actions will suffice – as there is seldom a need to record an inactive scene – who wants to watch paint dry? Of course, local storage can only be retrieved for viewing when the user is on-site; therefore users who are monitoring activity from remote locations may benefit from the Arlo subscription service, because it allows for remote access to recorded activity from any location with Wi-Fi access. Bottom line here – if you are reluctant to subscribe to Arlo, think twice about whether this product is right for you. Maintenance 1. During the initial 2-hour period where I actively tested and explored the camera, the App and their functions, the battery depleted by 6%. Conventional motion-activated usage will consume far less stored energy. Recharging the battery from 50% to a full charge took less than an hour. 2. The rechargeable batteries are easily removed from the camera housing simply by pressing a release button at the bottom of the housing. Battery removal is NOT required for recharging. A USB charger cord with a magnetic connection is provided and it snaps smartly over a charging port at the bottom of the housing. There are at least four options for battery recharging (1) bring the charger cord to the camera location and snap the magnetic connection into place on the charging port, (2) dismount the camera housing from the mounting bracket to bring the entire camera to the charging source, (3) leave the camera in its mounted position, and remove the battery from the housing (easy peasy) to place in a dedicated battery charger (a separately purchased accessory) or (4) permanently mount a rechargeable power source (i.e., solar panel) at the camera location. In most instances, where the camera mounting is easily accessible, recharging won’t be difficult – BUT will you remember to monitor the battery status to avoid a dead battery? Installing a solar panel or other power accessory may help. Summary: On the upside, the camera’s daytime video capture is excellent, and there are enough options available to tailor the use of the system to a variety of needs. On the downside, there was the inexplicable termination of the video connection after a period of inactivity, the cumbersome process for setting user options, the poor quality of night-time video, and the uncertainty regarding access to locally stored video. I found it necessary to spend a fair amount of time with this system before I became comfortable to utilize most of the valuable features this system has to offer. The ease of camera mounting/dismounting, as well as the ability to regularly access the rechargeable battery may also be important considerations. All in all, depending on the needs of the user, if you are agreeable to a monthly subscription service, this can be a good video security device notwithstanding the learning curve needed to understand and navigate the user settings. Otherwise, there may be better options.

Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Security Camera, Motion Activated, Wire-free, 2K Video, Color Night Vision,...
Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Security Camera, Motion Activated, Wire-free, 2K Video, Color Night Vision, 2-way Audio, Siren, White (Arlo was sold by Netgear and integrated with the original Nighthawk R7000 router like mine until people freaked out that their routers were back-doored for the Arlo app. In theory, this should work with that integrated app.) The Arlo camera systems have come a long way since inception. Unlike some products that get over-featured and then fail to work well at anything, this Arlo camera and floodlight is incredible. I wanted a wireless camera to supplement/replace my aging CCTV system. I have installed upwards of 200 open source recorders and PoE IP cameras. Running miles of that CAT5 wire was painful. The Arlo set up and install takes only moments. The small set-up guide is simple and perfect. Download the app and set up and account if you want online recording-- which I did for the $2.99 per month package. You do need a network router with the older 2.4Ghz (it will not work on the 5Ghz). Mounting outside on the front porch was simple with the enclosed screws and screw gun. I am super impressed with the Android app and alert system-- although I may alter that.

Love this floodlight security camera. When I opened the package, it was "Apple-like" in its appearance and attention to detail. The simple design and the way the camera was packaged was well thought out and has a quality feel to it. Assembly was easy and very intuitive. After I put everything together, I couldn't decide where to put the camera, so I tried out a couple of locations: One on my deck (to watch the pathway up to my house and surrounding area) and the other at the front entrance to my house. Turns out both locations capture areas that I want to monitor and they both lit up well at night, so I am going to purchase an additional camera so that I have one in both areas. I checked out a tutorial on YouTube, just to make sure that I was mounting the camera correctly and taking advantage of all of its features. Camera was super easy to mount. Three screws into a plate and the camera snaps right on. The night and day vision are excellent and it captures nice video and audio, with 2-way audio and a siren if needed. Tons of different adjustments regarding light levels, time intervals, etc., so it will easily accommodate most persons needs. The camera that I will be using on my deck is probably going to be going off/on quite frequently because it captures street traffic as well as foot traffic, so I am going to purchase the optional outdoor cable so that I don't have to rely on batteries for that unit.

The Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera is a completely wire-free device which makes it very convenient to install anywhere around the house without the bother of pre-installed wiring. It has a rechargeable battery which lasts from 3 to 6 months depending on usage and settings. Optional external charging cable or solar panel can be connected to make this floodlight absolutely wire-free or hassle of recharging battery even now and then. The package doesn’t come with a manual however the Arlo app has step by step instructions and video to install the floodlight. The battery came pre-charged so I was able to pair the app to floodlight right away. You do need a 2.4 GHz wifi connection for pairing and installing the floodlight. This could be a hassle for people who have upgraded to 5 GHz and do not have the technical skills to configure modem for dual band. Once installed though, the app and floodlight work just fine on 5 GHz wifi. Mounting is quite easy and hardware is already included in the package. While choosing the installation location, it is important to verify that it is within a strong wifi region. The back panel is installed to the wall, while the front panel which also houses the battery can be snapped out quite easily to occasionally recharge the battery. The floodlight is quite bright and the brightness can be controlled through the app. Schedules can be set, motion detection can be activated to turn on the floodlight momentarily. The camera is pretty good and works quite well both during day and night. Alerts can be set with an additional feature to ignore plants and animals, while only alerting when the camera recognizes vehicles and people. The app allows to turn on camera, take pictures/videos etc. Optional subscription plans allows to save recordings as well as security monitoring services. Overall, this Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera is a really useful device from a wire-free stand point. Other than the 2.4 GHz wifi required during install, the other consideration to keep in mind is recharging the battery which requires to occasionally get that ladder out, plug out the battery from the floodlight, charge indoors and replace the battery back. For some folks, this may not work out at all, but then again, the optional external charging cable or solar panel can solve this.

I have been using the Arlo Pro 2 cameras for about 2 years now. While they are not perfect, they do offer some great advantages like 7 days of free cloud recording and ability to continuously charge using a micro USB cable. I decided to give this product a try as my garage door did not have camera or proper lighting at the driveway. Out of the box, the first issue was that my garage does not have an option to mount the light on the wall and it had to be ceiling mounted. Of course, the ceiling adapter was an extra paid option. Decided to check nearby stores but none of them had in stock. I finally ended up putting an arlo pro 2 from my front door on the garage and putting this product over my front door. Connecting to the base station was a bit challenging and it took me two resets to get it paired finally ( I also had to pair every pro 2 camera in the house again). Video quality is slightly improved with the 2k resolution and the lights are bright enough for my front door. I am not sure if it would be enough for the driveway but then again I did not test that. The problem with 2k resolution is, it add a lot of latency (100mbps down/6mpbs up internet connection) between the recording event and the time I can actually watch it. For charging this device, you have to take out the camera from the housing and charge it via the micro USB. Considering the lights are power heavy, I assume this would be frequent process. Which brings us to my biggest gripe for this product, the proprietary charging cable. Arlo decided to go Apple's way and make a proprietary connector for the floodlight. If you want keep it running continuously, that's the only way to connect or to get a solar panel. The cable is pricey and from what I have read online, there are no reliable third party alternatives which reminds me of a similar tech company. I would have been fine, if I could just stick a micro USB cable ( yes, somehow they missed USB C) and not remove the camera from the wall every time it dies. Or at least, a magnetic cable that deactivates the camera when charging so there is still a market for the pricey cable in case someone needs continuous charging. I was still ok with all these shortcomings, however the last part just killed it for me. Somehow, the floodlight cannot be a part of my existing arlo pro 2 system I have to buy a separate cloud subscription to record in cloud. There is an option to record using a USB drive at the base station, but that just beats the purpose of such a device. Not pleased with the product and will not recommend it.

Really pleased with this security camera. We have the other brands hard wire version, and I was really excited to see how Arlo compared. Installation for Arlo was very simple, since it's not hardwired. There are options available to wire it, or add a solar panel, but out of the box, it does need to be plugged in and charged. Not a big deal for me, but depending on where you wish to mount it, that may be an issue. The battery does seem to be pretty good, as it's been almost two weeks, and the battery had only gone down 15%. The Arlo does need a 2.4ghz WiFi network, which you wouldn't know about until you have the box in hand. It's not mentioned in the listing anywhere. The range did seem to be pretty good, and I had no issues with my chosen location. Installation is three screws and a set screw, and you're done, and the app walks you through everything. The floodlight is blindingly bright (they warn you not to look at it in installation), I turned it down to 60% and it's plenty bright. In the app the camera can tell the difference between animals and people based motion, and is sensitive enough to puck up a mouse. You're able to customize the activity zone the camera is set off by, and the field of view can be set of 160, 125 or 110 degrees, as well as if you want the light to come on, when, flickering or constant, and for how long it should stay on. The biggest difference I've noticed between its competitor, is that when something sets it off, it's not the quickest to go live. Where I put this, it hasn't been an issue, as it's mostly for light and monitoring a blind spot, and the light is so darn bright, i feel it would startle most people. The other thing is, the other brand records prior to motion, whereas the Arlo picks up mid-event. The Arlo is also a little less discrete, and you should keep in mind that it needs to be accessible to take down and charge, but not too accessible anyone could take it down. Really pleased with Arlo though, and how easy it is to set up and use.
