No, Arlo does not rebuild your old cameras


What you need to know

  • Arlo is rolling out a new end-of-life (EOL) policy that ends the previously free 7-day rolling cloud storage program.
  • Several older Arlo cameras manufactured prior to 2019 will no longer receive firmware updates or be able to generate email notifications after the specified date for that model.
  • Arlo says customers can continue to use these EOL cameras by using an Arlo base station or subscribing to an Arlo Secure plan.
  • Arlo will also be discontinuing its email notifications and E911 service for all Arlo products in favor of its newer Emergency Response system after April 1, 2023.

When Arlo issued a new EOL (end-of-life) policy on January 1, 2023, many were rightfully concerned about the state of their home security systems. Basically, Arlo is shutting down several cameras manufactured between 2014 and 2018 and no longer providing firmware updates for those products. It also ends the formerly free 7-day rolling cloud storage program that many Arlo customers have enjoyed for years.

If you have one of the cameras listed below, please note that all motion events, recorded videos, live streaming capabilities, and most other features will continue to work as they do now. Thankfully, this isn’t a security issue like we recently saw with Eufy cameras (opens in new tab) and Wyze cameras for that.
