Arlo Wire-Free and Arlo Pro batteries last approximately 3-6 months with average use.
Arlo Go camera batteries last approximately 2-3 months with average use, depending on mobile signal strength.
Arlo Q and Arlo Q Plus cameras do not use batteries.
Average use assumes that you are using Optimized or Best Battery Life video settings and that your cameras record for approximately five minutes per day.
Increasing the length or quantity of video recordings in your camera’s modes and rules decreases your battery life.
The following environmental factors also reduce battery life:
- Temperatures below 32°F (0°C)
- Low-light environments that require infrared sensors to work harder
- Low LTE signal strength (Arlo Go only)
- Weak connection to the base station caused by distance, WiFi interference, or solid obstructions between camera and base station (Arlo Wire-Free and Arlo Pro Wire-Free cameras only)
