When you first set up your Arlo Essential wire-free camera, launch the Arlo app, and select Add New Device > Cameras > Arlo Essential. The Arlo app then asks you to select one of two camera setup options: Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera & Essential XL Spotlight Camera and Essential Camera.
In order for the Arlo app to successfully discover your camera, you must make sure that you select the correct camera option. If you don’t select the correct camera, your camera won't be discoverable by the Arlo app.
Note: To find your camera’s model number (VMC2030, VMC2032, VMC2020), check the box that your camera came in. If you can’t find the box, visit What is the difference between the three Arlo Essential wire-free cameras?.
