Why is my Arlo system reporting signal strength differently than it used to?

With the release of firmware version 1.9.0.0_14639, we improved the accuracy of reporting of signal strength between the base station and cameras. The signal strength is the same as before, but we are now reporting it more accurately.

For best performance, make sure that your cameras have three or four bars of signal strength. The cameras can work when signal strength is at one or two bars, but they might go out of range intermittently due to fluctuations in the environment.
