The installation was straight forward connecting it to my existing Arlo Hub. I noticed a very significant delay of around 30 seconds, which made two way communication unworkable. I tried the alternative method of connecting the doorbell directly to my WiFi, which reduced the lag to a bearable 2 seconds. A search showed that these lags are common.
During the activation I got suspicious of the mandatory signup for a three months of Arlo Smart, which includes among other things a 30 day cloud storage for videos. After some reserach I found the information on the Arlo website. It is very hidden, after the free trial the only way to maintain free cloud storage is a paid subscription. By this point most customers are beyond their free return period. While it is possible to use local storage connected to the Arlo Hub, this is not workable to the long video lags.
Here is the important information which I eventually found on the Arlo support website:
What options will I have when the Arlo Smart 3-month trial plan ends?
When the Arlo Smart 3-month trial that was included with your Arlo camera purchase ends, you have the option to purchase an Arlo Smart Premier or Elite plan. You can also choose not to have a service plan. For purchasing options, visit Arlo Smart Plans.
Without a service plan, your Arlo camera will continue to have the following features:
- Remote and local live streaming
- Push notifications
- Auto Zoom and Tracking*
- Two-way audio
- Local storage recording*
If you own legacy Arlo cameras (Pro 2, Pro, Wire-Free, Go, Q Plus, Q, and Baby), they will revert back to No Subscription, which includes rolling 7-day cloud recording, along with all the same features and benefits as before.
So I went out and bought a transformer and replaced the old one. I measured the output and confirmed it was providing enough power. Plugged the camera back in and then nothing! The camera was now dead. Apparently the internal battery died. Or at least that what the troubleshooting guide told me. It recommended leaving it plugged in for 13 minutes to allow the battery to charge back up. But it never did. The camera never again showed any signs of life. It was just dead. So after I returned the camera, all I'm left with now is a shiny new transformer on my doorbell.
In today's world, people expect things to just work. I don't want to have to troubleshoot anything. I just want to plug it in and walk away happy. I don't want to have to go buy an extra item to make it work. I don't want to have to open the troubleshooting guide. I don't want to have to take out a voltmeter to figure out if I have the right voltage. Just make it work!
Started off fine, but 3 months in and it can’t record a single video without glitches, pauses, green pixel artifacts, and garbled audio.
Do not try to use the intercom feature. It will never work. You can’t hear the person without a significant delay, then your voice is impossible for the person to understand, and it never works.
Also, since the camera is hardwired, it’s really hard to restart it. You have to pop it open, pull it away from the wall, and then push the pinhole button to completely reset it. That means you have to re-add it to your hub/setup.
So, instead of a simple restart to try to fix the video / audio problems, you have to reset it completely.
The Arlo support is abysmal. Arlo has somehow ensured that any and all searches only pull up their KB pages. And those pages are next to useless to troubleshoot any problems. I can’t find a single support page that addresses my poor video and audio issues.
I haven’t tried competing products because I am already invested in Arlo (6 cameras and doorbell) and I did not want to add another hub/app to my setup. But, I wish I had just purchased another camera and skipped the video doorbell all together.
Purchased a new router thinking that was the issue. No go. The installation process is cumbersome and product is half baked.
It’s a shame, I have 5 Arlo cameras that work perfectly but this doorbell is just not good.
Returning second one and giving another brand a chance. Amazon has been great! ARLO support and doorbell installation process is a joke.
Top reviews from other countries
One reviewer complained about the cost of rolling 30-day cloud storage and suggested that it costs $13-15/month. Wish I knew where he got that from because it clearly says on the website that the cost is $2.99/mo in the U.S. and $3.99/mo. in Canada. That strikes me as reasonable.
I'm currently using the Arlo doorbell at one of our properties. I'm impressed, so I'm planning to install one at another property. Yes, it would be nice if the unit was a bit smaller, but I can live with that.
