Assuming that your camera and base station are connected with each other and with the Netgear router simultaneously

  • Now click on the Settings tab> My devices select your Arlo or Arlo Pro base
  • Now click on the Device info > Firmware > Update.
  • Wait for the base station firmware to complete properly. The Arlo camera base station LED blinks green while downloading and installing the update. However, the LED will get stable when the update is finished.

NOTE- It is quite important to note that while the update is in the process, make sure that the update process isn’t interrupted in any case. If the update process is interrupted in between the course the firmware of the base station can get corrupt and the device can be rendered useless. So make sure the interruption in between the update process doesn’t happen by any chance.
