Firmware updates are released automatically to all connected Arlo devices. Automatic updates happen between 3:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. to minimize camera downtime.
If the firmware update is a major one, you might be unable to stream from your camera until your firmware is updated. You can wait until the update happens automatically between 3:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m., or you can update your firmware manually. Even when you cannot view your camera live, motion and sound detection still work, and your camera still records based on the currently selected mode.
Note: Arlo Go firmware updates use cellular data to download. Minor firmware updates, which occur roughly once every three months, use about 8MB of data (0.8% of a 1GB data allotment). Larger updates, which usually happen about once a year, can be as large as 52MB (5.2% of a 1GB data allotment).
To update your Arlo Ultra, Pro 3, Pro 2, Pro, or Wire-Free firmware manually:
To update your Arlo Q, Q Plus, or Go firmware manually:
To update your SmartHub or base station firmware manually:
If the Power LED on your base station is blinking green or the Power LED on your Arlo camera is blinking blue and amber, a firmware update is in progress.
Do not turn off or disconnect your Arlo device while a firmware update is in progress. Wait for your Arlo cameras to be viewable in your Devices feed before powering off or disconnecting any of your Arlo devices.
