If you’ve recently invested in an Arlo Pro 2 security camera, congratulations! You’ve made a wise decision to protect your home or business with one of the best security cameras on the market. But like any piece of technology, your Arlo Pro 2 camera will require some occasional maintenance to keep it working like new.
Here are a few tips to help you keep your camera in tip-top shape:
1. Keep the lens clean
One of the most important things you can do to keep your Arlo Pro 2 camera working like new is to keep the lens clean. Dust, dirt, and fingerprints can all impede the camera’s ability to take clear pictures or videos. Use a soft, dry cloth to gently wipe the lens clean as needed.
2. Avoid extreme temperatures
Your Arlo Pro 2 camera is designed to withstand a wide range of temperatures, but extreme heat or cold can still cause problems. If possible, try to keep your camera out of direct sunlight or in a shady area to avoid overheating. And if you live in a cold climate, be sure to keep your camera away from any heat sources, like a furnace, to prevent it from getting too cold.
3. Keep the camera dry
It’s important to keep your Arlo Pro 2 camera dry to prevent damage from moisture. If your camera is exposed to rain or snow, be sure to wipe it down as soon as possible to remove any moisture. And if you live in a humid climate, be sure to keep your camera in a dry, well-ventilated area to prevent condensation from building up on the lens or internal components.
4. Update the firmware
Like any piece of technology, your Arlo Pro 2 camera benefits from regular firmware updates. Arlo releases new firmware updates periodically to improve the camera’s performance and add new features. To check for new firmware updates, open the Arlo app and tap the Settings icon. Then, tap Devices and select your camera. If a new firmware update is available, you’ll see an option to update the firmware.
5. Reset the camera
If your Arlo Pro 2 camera isn’t working properly, you may need to reset it to factory defaults. This will restore the camera to its original state and may fix any issues you’re having. To reset your camera, open the Arlo app and tap the Settings icon. Then, tap Devices and select your camera. Finally, tap the Reset button and confirm that you want to reset the camera.
By following these simple tips, you can keep your Arlo Pro 2 camera working like new for years to come.
