Get Started

This chapter presents the tasks involved in installing your Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera. The free Arlo app guides you through this process with step-by-step instructions. The tasks in this process fall into these main categories:

  • Setup
  • Prep
  • Mounting
  • Checking the camera’s view

Setup: Use the Arlo app
The free Arlo app helps you complete the setup and guides you through the installation process.

  1. Open the Arlo app and connect to your WiFi network. If you don’t have the app, you can download it and create your Arlo account. Once you set up your Arlo account, you can access it from the Arlo app on a smartphone or tablet, or from a computer using a web browser. If you’re using a computer, enter https://my.arlo.com/#/login in the address bar of the browser.
  2. Select Add Device and add your Pro 3 Floodlight Camera.

Prep: Insert the battery

The Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera consists of two parts. The floodlight and camera part is where you insert the battery. The camera housing is the second part, which protects the camera.

  1. Press the battery access button on the bottom of the Floodlight Camera and separate the camera from the camera housing.
  2. Arlo Pro 3 FB1001 Floodlight Camera 5Insert the battery into the camera with the Arlo logo on your floodlight and the Arlo logo on the battery facing up. The LED on the front of your Pro 3 Floodlight Camera blinks blue after the battery is inserted.
  3. Arlo Pro 3 FB1001 Floodlight Camera 6If you want to charge the battery, bring the camera indoors and use the USB charging cable and the power adapter.
  4. Arlo Pro 3 FB1001 Floodlight Camera 7Keep your Floodlight Camera separate from the camera housing while you follow the instructions in the Arlo app to pair your Floodlight Camera to your Wifi network.

The Arlo app guides you through setup first before you mount the camera housing.

Prep: Check the LED

The LED lights when your floodlight is powered on. The LED changes color and blinks depending on the battery charge and indicates the status of activities such as pairing the camera and updating the camera firmware.

  • Slow blinking blue. The floodlight is in the process of pairing.
  • Fast blinking blue. The floodlight was successfully paired.
  • Blinking amber. The floodlight is out of range, an error occurred during pairing, or the battery charge is low (15% or less).
  • Alternating blue and amber. The floodlight failed to pair, or a firmware update is in process, or a reset is in process.

Prep: Find a good location for your floodlight

Select a location for your floodlight with a clear vantage point to fully optimize the wide field of view.

Arlo Pro 3 FB1001 Floodlight Camera 8

For the best experience, choose a location with a strong WiFi signal. You can check the WiFi signal strength in the Arlo app. For information about WiFi connections, see WiFi connection options for your floodlight on page 18. We recommend mounting your floodlight 8-10 feet (2.5-3 meters) off the ground, angled toward the ground. Each home system setup is unique, so use these guidelines as general best practices.

Arlo Pro 3 FB1001 Floodlight Camera 9

This illustration shows the floodlight’s beam spread within the camera’s field of view. The area lit by the floodlight extends beyond what is shown here. When mounting your floodlight:

  • Place your floodlight about 8-10 feet (2.5-3 meters) off the ground.
  • Tilt your floodlight about 40° toward the ground, and further adjust the angle based on the height and location.
  • Make sure that the floodlight camera’s field of view is clear of nearby walls and other obstructions. A nearby wall can cause a bright reflection from the floodlight.

Prep: What you need for wall mounting

Your floodlight comes with a wall plate, screws, and wall anchors that are designed for wall mounting. If you want to mount your floodlight on a ceiling, we recommend using the ceiling adapter, sold separately. See Install the ceiling adapter (sold separately) on page 14. What you need for wall-mounting.

  • A power drill with a 15/64 in. (6 mm) drill bit
  • A Phillips screwdriver
  • A pencil
  • The wall plate, screws, and wall anchors that came in the package with your Pro 3 Floodlight Camera.

WARNING
Mount your camera onto a flat, supportive surface.

When mounting your camera, select a mounting surface that can support the weight of your camera with the battery installed. Mounting your camera in an unstable location might create a hazardous situation or damage your product, which might not be covered by Arlo’s warranty.

Wall-mount your floodlight
The Arlo app guides you through the installation process for your floodlight. For the best experience, we recommend that you wait until the Arlo app tells you to mount your floodlight before you begin the mounting process.

  1. Press the battery access button on the bottom of the floodlight and separate the camera from the camera housing. This makes mounting easier, and it allows you to charge the camera while you’re mounting the camera housing.
  2. Arlo Pro 3 FB1001 Floodlight Camera 10 Place the wall plate on the wall as a guide with the arrow pointing up. Use a pencil to mark the position of the holes in the wall plate. Then remove the wall plate.
  3. Arlo Pro 3 FB1001 Floodlight Camera 11Use a 15/64 in. (6 mm) drill bit to drill three holes into the wall. We recommend using wall anchors when mounting on drywall, brick, or tile.
  4. Place the wall plate with the arrow pointing up and fasten a screw into each hole.
  5. Arlo Pro 3 FB1001 Floodlight Camera 12Align the camera housing so that the lock screw on the bottom of the mount lines up with the green dot on the wall plate.
  6. Arlo Pro 3 FB1001 Floodlight Camera 13Twist the camera housing clockwise until you hear a click and the housing locks in place.
  7. Tighten the lock screw.
  8. While you hold the top and bottom of the floodlight, insert the floodlight camera into the camera housing until it clicks into place. (Don’t press on the camera lens or the light.)

It is not automatically applied to the camera rules used by modes to arm your floodlight. When you are satisfied with a particular motion sensitivity level in the test, note the setting so that you can add it to your rules.
  7. Edit the rule for your camera to enter the motion sensitivity level that you want to use.

Arm your Floodlight Camera

Selecting a mode lets you control when your camera detects motion and audio and the rules it uses to record and alert you. You can also use modes to control when the floodlight lights and when its siren turns on. The Arlo app comes with four modes: Armed, Disarmed, Schedule, and Geofencing. You can customize each mode and you can also create custom modes.

HEVC 2K playback-supported devices

High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is a video compression standard that enables you to download and stream 2K videos with ease. To use HEVC on the Arlo app, you must use a supported device and meet the minimum requirements. Your device must:

  • Run iOS 9.0 or higher (Apple devices)
  • Run Android 5.0 or higher (Android devices)
  • Have the latest version of the Arlo app (for mobile)
  • Use a web browser that supports HEVC

Note
To check if your web browser supports HEVC, visit https://caniuse.com/#feat=hevc.

HEVC is supported on:

  • iPhone 7/7 Plus or newer
  • iPad Pro or newer
  • Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Plus or newer
  • Galaxy Note 8 or newer
  • Google Pixel/Pixel XL or newer

WiFi Setup and Connections

When you install and set up your floodlight, the Arlo app guides you through the process of connecting the floodlight to your router’s 2.4 GHz WiFi network or an optional Arlo SmartHub or base station.

WiFi connection options for your floodlight
When you install your floodlight you can connect it directly to your router’s 2.4 GHz WiFi band, or you can connect the floodlight with WiFi to an Arlo SmartHub VMB5000 or VMB4540, or an Arlo base station VMB4500 or VMB4000. An Arlo SmartHub or base station isn’t included in the package with your floodlight. They are sold separately. Using your floodlight with a SmartHub or base station gives you access to these additional features:

  • 2K local streaming and 2K local recording
  • Auto Zoom and Tracking
  • CVR (with a subscription)
  • Use local storage on an SD card in a VMB5000 SmartHub or on a USB storage device connected to the SmartHub VMB4540 or base station VMB4500 or VMB4000.
  • Use remote access for SmartHubs VMB5000 and VMB4540.

After you install and set up your floodlight, you can move its WiFi connection from your router to a SmartHub or base station. You can also move your floodlight’s WiFi connection from a SmartHub or base station and connect it directly to your router’s 2.4 GHz WiFi band. To do this, you must remove the device from your account and reinstall it through the Arlo app, selecting the appropriate option to move back and forth.

Tips for optimal WiFi performance
The distance between WiFi devices can affect the WiFi signal:

  • Maximum recommended distance. We recommend that you place your floodlight within 300 feet (90 meters) of your WiFi router. The maximum line-of-sight range of 300 feet is reduced by each wall, ceiling, or other major obstruction between the floodlight and the router.
  • Minimum recommended distance. To reduce WiFi interference, allow at least 6½ feet (2 meters) between your floodlight and any Arlo cameras that you install.

These materials can reduce WiFi signal strength if they are located between WiFi devices:

  • Unusually thick walls and ceilings
  • Brick
  • Concrete
  • Stone
  • Ceramic
  • Glass, especially mirrors
  • Metal
  • Large quantities of water, such as the water in a fish tank or water heater

Two-step verification
Two-step verification helps protect your account by adding another layer of security when you log in to your Arlo account. Arlo will verify your identity anytime you sign in with a new device. You can have up to five different two-step verification methods, in addition to the email address associated with your Arlo account.

Note
If you’re a Friend on someone’s Arlo account, and the account owner sets up two-step verification, you don’t have to use two-step verification to log in. Likewise, if you set up two-step verification as a Friend on an Arlo account, the account owner is not affected.

To sign in with two-step verification, you must first enter your email address and password. Then, you must authenticate your identity with a security code (delivered by SMS text message or email) or confirmation from an already trusted device. Requiring two pieces of information helps to prevent any unwanted login, even if someone has your Arlo account password.

  • Push notification. When someone attempts to log in to your Arlo account on a new device, Arlo sends a push notification to a previously trusted (and currently logged-in) iOS or Android device. Tap the push notification on the trusted device to approve or deny the login.
  • SMS text message. When someone attempts to log in to your Arlo account, Arlo sends a text message to the phone number that you verified for two-step verification. Enter the security code from the text message to complete the login.
  • Email. If you can’t access a trusted device with push notifications, or if you can’t receive SMS text messages, you can request to have a security code sent to the email associated with your Arlo account.

Troubleshooting

Scan a QR code during setup
During setup, the floodlight must scan a QR code from the Arlo app when you’re adding the floodlight to your 2.4 GHz WiFi network. If your floodlight doesn’t emit a chime sound after scanning the QR code, then the QR code wasn’t successfully scanned. If your floodlight didn’t scan the QR code:

  • Move your mobile device farther from, or closer to, the floodlight camera lens.

Arlo Pro 3 FB1001 Floodlight Camera 27

  • Position your mobile device about 6 in. (15 cm) from the floodlight camera lens, and slowly move it closer. If that doesn’t work, try moving your mobile device farther away. You can also try different angles.
  • Decrease or increase the brightness on your mobile device. Your mobile device’s brightness might be too high or too low for your floodlight to scan the QR code. If it’s dark outside, try setting the brightness on your mobile device to the 50% level. If it’s bright outside, try raising the brightness on your mobile device to the highest level.
  • Disable Dark Mode if you’re using an iOS device. In your iOS Settings, scroll down to find and select Display & Brightness. Choose Light mode under the Appearance options.
  • Scan the QR code in an evenly lit area. Avoid scanning the QR code in the dark or direct sunlight. If you are installing at night, turn on porch lights. If your floodlight is exposed to direct sunlight during installation, provide some shade.
  • Try using a mobile device with a larger screen, such as a tablet or iPad, if available.
  • Clean the floodlight camera lens.

The floodlight is inactive during charging
Your floodlight is inactive while the USB Charging Cable or Indoor Magnetic Charging Cable is plugged in. This is because these charging cables are meant for indoor charging only. To use the floodlight, record audio, and record video while your camera charges, you must use an Outdoor Magnetic Charging Cable or Arlo Solar Panel, which are sold separately. For more information.

Troubleshoot Arlo Geofencing
Each Arlo user has a unique setup environment. These are the most common geofencing issues.

  • Your mobile device isn’t sharing its location information with Arlo. See Prepare your mobile device for geofencing on page 42.
  • Away mode isn’t triggered when you leave because an extra mobile device that’s enabled for geofencing is still in the Device Location. See Geofencing with multiple mobile devices on page 43.
  • Geofencing stopped working because the location-sharing settings for a mobile device changed. See Prepare your mobile device for geofencing on page 42.
  • A task-killing app is interfering with Arlo Geofencing. A task-killing app, such as Shutapp or Doze, can disable Arlo Geofencing. To use Arlo Geofencing, disable any apps that suppress the Arlo app.
  • Geofencing for your mobile device on your friend’s Arlo account isn’t working.

If you’re a friend on someone else’s Arlo account, your mobile device can only change Home/Away modes if the Arlo account owner does the following:

  • Turn on the Allow Access Rights setting. See Grant access to friends on page 50.
  • Set your device as an Enabled Device in Geofencing settings. See Enable or Disable geofencing for friends’ mobile devices on page 44.

Still, experiencing issues with geofencing? Contact Arlo Customer Support.

WiFi signal interference
Environments with multiple WiFi networks, WiFi devices, or frequencies can cause signal interference. If possible, minimize the number of networks, WiFi devices, and transmitted frequencies in the area where you place your floodlight. For help with adjusting WiFi settings such as the channel for your router, check the instructions that came with your router or contact your Internet service provider (ISP) if they installed your router.

We recommend that you place your floodlight at least 1 to 3 feet (30 to 100 centimeters) from your router or Arlo SmartHub or base station if you use one. Allow at least 6½ feet (2 meters) between each floodlight or Arlo camera to prevent WiFi signals between the devices from interfering with each other.

Out of range
Make sure that your floodlight is close enough to receive a strong WiFi signal. The range of your router’s WiFi signal can vary depending on the router model and conditions in your local environment. If you pair your floodlight to an optional Arlo SmartHub or base station, we recommend that you place the floodlight no farther than 300 feet (90 meters) from the SmartHub or base station.

The range might be less if metal objects or thick walls and ceilings are between a floodlight and the SmartHub or base station. Make sure that your floodlights display three or four bars of signal strength in the area where you intend to install them. The floodlights can work when signal strength is at one or two bars, but they might go out of range intermittently due to fluctuations in the environment.

Low battery
A low battery can cause the camera to stream intermittently. It’s time to recharge the battery or change it when the battery level is down to two bars on the Arlo app Devices page.
