Arlo surveillance cameras went offline due to server interruption

Arlo is a famous name in the remote surveillance camera field nowadays. But as of now, a few people are somewhat angry with the organization. Huge disruption in the service was noticed and Arlo is investigating it.

Arlo surveillance camera users haven’t had the most dependable service this week. The company has affirmed an interruption in the connection that thumped numerous cameras thereby disconnecting them in the evening on Saturday. Clients confronted “occasional login issues” that either kept them from logging in or wouldn’t give them a chance to watch the recorded images or videos. Some other users were not able to see live streams or connect to the system. The interruption kept occurring for a couple of hours. It’s not the first event of an interruption in past months for the company.

This was serious when compared with the previous occurrences, which either were for small durations or influenced a few numbers of users. The organization apologized for the interference in the service and assured its clients that all recordings at the cloud are protected and current activities will be recorded.

A source from the company confirmed that the issue has been fixed and all systems are operational now. Moreover, the assumptions that the interruption was because of suspicious movement has likewise been disapproved.

The disruption is a prompting that the cloud-based cameras are just as dependable as the web services that run them. Even a moderately short interruption could give a window of chance to trespassers. Arlo held its open stock offering not long ago. While this is certainly not a serious failure, it’s not precisely a decent beginning.
