I only want the button to ring the doorbell, not call me on the phone. Looks like that is not an option. At first, the doorbell would not ring the mechanical bell. I reset it back to factory, reinstalled the doorbell, and I worked, but called me on the phone. I set it to Silent, the doorbell rang, and no phone call. A day later, no doorbell. I turned Silent off, and now it works and calls me.  My next step is to throw this piece of junk away, buy a cheap doorbell switch, and move on. I will NEVER buy another Arlo product if they can't even make a simple doorbell switch that will work!

Hi @cwkudzu

 

May I ask which troubleshooting steps you have performed so far? I don't want to suggest any prior methods you have previously performed.

As mentioned earlier, I reset it back to factory, reinstalled the doorbell, and I worked, but called me on the phone. I set it to Silent, the doorbell rang, and no phone call. A day later, no doorbell. I turned Silent off, and now it works and calls me.

 

However, now the doorbell does not ring when the cameras are in DISARMED mode.  This does not help when delivery people show up.  When the doorbell was associated with a camera, the video quality was so poor and choppy that I am unable to use it this way.  I only installed the doorbell because it was part of the package.
