Many of the times users might experience interruption while streaming live recordings from an arlo or arlo pro app. It is because the maximum continuous streaming time for Arlo security cameras has been restricted to 30 minutes. For more information, kindly refer to complete details shared through the following passage.

While live streaming the files users might experience interruption after every 30 minutes of continues streaming. To view further recording users will have to resume that streaming after an interval of 30 minutes. This interruption occurs because all arlo cameras are designed to offer continues streaming up to 30 minutes only. For an extended streaming, resuming is required after every 30 minutes of continues streaming. This time specific streaming restriction has been applied for avoiding problems in case recorded clip is left to unattended playing state. Following is the list of few issues that can occur in case the streaming is left active to unattended state by mistake.

  • Continuous playing of live recordings or pre-recorded files can consume lot of network data. This continues consumption of data can lead to less network bandwidth which in turn can hamper the performance of other devices that are using same internet network.
  • In case of all arlo wire free cameras, continues streaming of recordings can lead to faster depletion of their battery. The faster depletion of battery can also affect the battery life.
  • Un-attended playing video files can be viewed by unauthorized persons.

No matter, either the recordings are being streamed or not, all working arlo security cameras never miss to record any of the activity or movements happening under their viewing range. Still, to ensure the recording of actions users may enable many of the smart features of their arlo like motion detection, cloud based recording, auto track & zoom etc.

Users who wish to enable their arlo camera for continuous recording and streaming may opt in for Continuous Video Recording (CVR) plan. CVR is an add-on plan, thus users will have to pay an additional amount for availing Continuous Video Recording service for their netgear arlo camera. Many of the arlo camera models including Arlo Q, Arlo Pro 2, Arlo Q plus and Arlo Ultra support CVR plan. So, if you own any of these cameras and wish to have a 24*7 recording option for it, then purchasing the CVR plan could be of great use to you. Kindly remember that Arlo Ultra security camera and Arlo Pro 2 camera will support the CVR only when they are in plugged in state. So the CVR service will be disabled whenever the Arlo Pro 2 camera or Arlo Ultra will be left unplugged. Also, CVR plan won’t work for Arlo wire-free and Arlo Pro security camera.

Ideally users can avail any of the two CVR plans i.e. a 14 days plan or 30 days plan. Both the CVR plans offer the accessing and streaming of videos from cloud database only. Users can not download or save the copy of their CVR streaming files as only streaming is allowed.
