What do my Arlo camera's battery level icons and notifications mean?

Camera Battery Level

To view your battery level

  1. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at my.arlo.com.
  2. Tap or click the settings icon under the camera that you want to check.
    Your Arlo camera’s battery level displays.

Camera battery levels are accurate as long as the camera is close to room temperature (65-75°F, 18-24°C). Temperature variations can affect the accuracy of the displayed battery level.

The battery level is less accurate under the following conditions:

  • The camera is outside of room temperature for a long period of time.
  • You stream video from the camera frequently.
  • The camera gets close to either end of its operating temperature range.
  • The battery level is always the best-case estimate, so the actual battery level can only be lower than what is indicated.

You receive a low battery notification when batteries have 15% of their charge remaining.
