  • Just a suggestion that you already may be doing, but you'd also want to check the Arlo forums for this info - likely more/better info there due to those forums being focused on Arlo users. .

      rudybruins I also noticed previously in some posts in another forum that in the Arlo system, the cameras connect to the base station, which connects to your network. So if that's correct, you'll be reliant on the base station to connect to your cameras, and your Eero mesh network strength won't be leveraged for cameras that are at the greatest distance.

  • I just installed an Arlo camera system at my house this week. It works just fine with eero. But Danabw is correct that Arlo doesn’t use your eero WiFi. It connects only to its own base station, so it’s important to place the base station in a central location where your cameras can still talk to it. The base station does have to be wired in as well, but that’s one great thing about eero! One of my eero leaf nodes is in a more central spot than my gateway, so I just wired it into that one and that was all there was to it.

      cMoo92 I have used the same topology in my house. My primary gateway is in a corner of the house (which I why I needed Eero in the first place) and so I put the Arlo hub in a central area of the house wired to the back of an Eero Pro. Works fine, no issues.
