Do you know when the Arlo Audio Doorbell will be released in the UK?
If I was to purchase one from the USA would it be supported in the UK?
Thanks in advance for you help....

Before You Buy
Probably definitely buying the chime as well when it launched in the UK. Or wait until there is Google home integration.
I have both, brought over for Christmas from the US. Plugged in and generally working just fine. I do have an issue with not being able to stop the phone ringing, everytime the bell is pressed... Probably just needs to correctly setup?
I simply want the choice to not have the phone ring when the door bell is pressed.
Ideally this should be a selectable choice as there are times when the feature is required.
Hopefully, that makes it clear?
You can mute calls / notifications but this will mean you dont get a call.
However your phone settings will control the notification / ringing volume. If your phone is set to silent then you will receive the call but you phone should not Ring.
Tell me more "You can mute calls / notifications" that is essentially what I want to happen but, still need the chime to do its job.
Basically, having bought a chime together with a doorbell - that's the combination I want, indeed expect, to work when I'm in the house. The phone is only of use, to me, when I'm outside the house and welcome notifications that someone is at the door back home.
Have I missed something here?
Watched YouTube videos for the package and some really good features.
Would be a pain to do every time you come in the house / if you forget to toggle it back on again you may miss someone at your door if you are out. At least you have the option to do it 🙂
Really if you put your phone on silent mode this would work anyway. It won't stop the call but at least you won't hear it ring.
Does that help?
It is not perfect. For a start the doorbell itself would be easy to steal. All you need is a couple of mins and a Philips screw driver. Ring at least used an Allen key to make the unit more difficult to open / remove the device.. Also if the Ring doorbell was stolen they offered a free replacement. I assume they will disable the MAC address of the item meaning it could not be reused anyway. Not seen any similar offer from Arlo?
Battery level is at 80% so it is approx inline for the 12 months.
Pressing the doorbell button is a little hard and it would be better for the doorbell itself to ring so the person pressing knows it has worked. Arlo could add this with a software update.
Hope this helps. Not regretting buying this and really for my purposes it was better than ring.
