I love the easy setup and that I can put my cameras all over. I can access them anywhere inside and outside because they are waterproof. However, I don't like that these cameras need irregular, unusual batteries weekly. I had to buy rechargeable size cr123a just to be able to use my cameras. It was really difficult to find those batteries. You can't get them in just any store. And the very next year Arlo came out with rechargeable cameras!
Huge delay before recordings take place. This makes it easy for someone to get past camera without being caught on video. If this major issue is fixed, then these cameras could be great security tool. Can you also fix the delay when retrieving camera status. Since this update, the visual camera status doesn't work or indicate status properly.
Most recent update is missing the pencil button in the Mode settings for Armed and Disarmed. I'm now unable to modify changes to my system. This issue is only with the Android app. It's working fine on the iOS app and Web browser using a computer.
Geolocation seems to get worse with every update. Difficult to define a schedule via the mobile app. Update-gelocation is pretty useless now, even on beta. Constantly switches between home and away. Persistent not connected notifications.
Nice UI but tends to be slow and buggy. When I click on the notification that motion/audio has been detected, the app should open more quickly and take the user to the captured event. This will aid if immediate action is required by the user; ie if the user needs to activate the alarm, call the police, call a neighbor, use the camera's speaker, etc. I would also like to suggest more information on firmware downloaded to the camera or base station; ie when it was updated, and list of the improvements.
Good camera ( Arlo q), good software but I'm depending on a cloud based storage. This makes it easier for some to hack into the camera. I'd give it 5 stars if I had the ability to record to a network share or NAS. But Netgear would rather hold us hostage with service fees. I will not sign up for their service. I may even sell it and go with something like Foscam.
