Use the following article for tips on how to increase the range of your Arlo system, or visit our YouTube video at How to Extend the Range of your Arlo Home Security System.
Using your Arlo system with a range extender or a Powerline adapter offers you flexibility when deciding where to place your Arlo Wire-Free or Arlo Q system.
Instead of connecting the Arlo SmartHub or Arlo base station directly to your router, you can connect the base station to an Ethernet port on a WiFi range extender or Powerline adapter. This means you can put the base station farther away from the router or in a central location in your home to get better coverage with your Arlo cameras.
For Arlo Q, you can connect it to a WiFi range extender. This means you can put the Arlo Q farther away from the router.
Range extenders work as a WiFi bridge by connecting wirelessly to routers. You can use the Ethernet port on the extender to connect the Arlo base station and other devices to your home network.
Powerline adapters extend your network using your existing electrical wiring. Plug two or more Powerline adapters into electrical outlets to create a wired network connection. You can connect an Arlo SmartHub or Arlo base station to the Powerline adapter using an Ethernet cable.
