when you set up the app on your smart phone... no number added
canned messgs appear if you answer phone, other wise the dbell will ask to leave a messg if wanted
Morse is faster than texting!
Correct. I did notice the canned responses and option to put in phone number whenoriginally installed. So does this mean that in order to add/change the number or choose a response, that I need to completely un-install the doorbell each time, then re-install again, to choose one of these functions?
It does somehow use the phone capabilities. I'm not sure how since it's not a real phone call but I've been playing with different phone apps and switching them as the default requires me to reinstall the app before calls work again.
Thank you all. It has become quite apparent that this product "Arlo Doorbell" was not ready for primetime when it was released. The Arlo App software does not support my original question. I have concluded that you must un-install and then re-install if you wish to change a phone number or change the auto reply that it will use if the phone does not answer or is disabled. However, I have also determined that I do not need to add or change my number at this specific time as I did configure the installation correctly initially as it does dial my phone number, and if I answer call, then I have two way communication through the doorbell to the visitor. The caveat/problem that I have found is that the reason I was not getting calls is that you must have the Arlo App always running for the phone communication feature to function. My phone is iPhone IOS 12.0.1. So it appears the Arlo App latest installation has some glaring issues with both the camera functions and the doorbell feature.
Thanks...I actually does come in to the phone as an incoming call with Identiy label of caller that you assigned to the dooribell in the Arlo App. Once you accept the call, two way communication is established with the phone and doorbell, and speaker of camera that is paired with doobell is disabled. A .wav file of the communication is then saved in the Arlo App library along with the thumbnail to identify it as such. See solution I found for getting the call from doorbell
