Anyone find a way to set up a separate ringtone when the Arlo doorbell triggers a call on an Android phone?  It only plays the default ringtone and I can't find a way to have a separate ringtone for the doorbell vs. normal calls.  My dog has associated the ringtone with people at the door so everytime I get a call he starts barking...

 

Workarounds appreciated.  Currently running Android 8.1.

That will change the notification when motion is sensed, however, it does not change the ringtone for the call my phone receives as a result of someone pressing the doorbell.  Unless I missed something.  Appreciate the time in responding though.

AFAIK, the call from the doorbell just uses the same tone as a real phone call. You can't change that to be different. I suspect that isn't possible.

It would be a nice feature so that users know when it's their doorbell versus a call. 

 

Seems to already be mentioned as an idea (https://community.arlo.com/t5/Arlo-Idea-Exchange/Arlo-Doorbell-Ringtone/idi-p/1662749).  

 

Maybe in a future release...
