Safari Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge updating process

Because above browsers and created by the OS company itself, so you will have to update the whole Operating System (OS). Go to settings or control panel of your respected device and update windows or mac.

Smart phone

Smart phone is required with some basic features, that i am sure yours will have.

Apple Devices

For iPhone, iPad or iPod you need the latest software version. Apple has released the iOS 9 for al their devices around the world. Please check in the settings options of your phone and update it to latest. You may not be able to get iOS 10 or higher, but iOS 9 will dt it.

Android devices

For android phones and tablets please check your latest software version should be 4.2.2 or above. That falls under jelly bean category.

Windows Devices

Unfortunately windows phones are or supported for the arlo camera smart apps. I don’t think they are going to add their software to windows phones because app development for windows phones is dropping.

BlackBerry OS

For Blackberry OS Smart Phones you need to have latest Blackberry 10 OS based device. If you have BlackBerry 7 OS phone, i am sorry you cannot update it to BB10. Although BB10 phones are not android phones abut they have android run time integrated on their BB10 secure OS. I have tried this app on my BlackBerry Passport, and that works fine. I recommend to update your BB software to latest BB 10.3.3.


Users also require a router. Please note if you have camera with base station, you will need an empty Ethernet port to connect your base station to it. You can contact us to ask any question about minimum requirements to install Arlo Security Camera System
