How do I request a Return Material Authorization (RMA)?

To determine if your product might be defective, call Technical Support so that an expert can troubleshoot the issues you’ve been having with your product and determine whether an RMA is needed. Do not ship your product to Arlo before contacting Support and obtaining authorization to return it. Arlo will not replace a product without an RMA.
