What are average battery life and data usage for an Arlo Go camera?

Average battery life for an Arlo Go camera is more than one month (depending on mobile signal strength), and average data usage is 850 MB (0.85 GB) per month.

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 increases your data usage and decreases your battery life. Using a higher-quality video setting also increases data usage.

The following environmental factors can also reduce battery life:

  • Temperatures below 32°F (0°C)
  • Low-light environments that require infrared sensors to work harder
  • Low LTE signal strength
