The Arlo Baby Monitor gives "Abnormal Air Quality" notifications but there is no way to determine what the underlying cause is. If the monitor is able to differentiate between different air quality issues then it would be nice if the developers would create a feature whereby the system could communicate to the consumer which trigger is causing the alert. If it's VOC's my response will be different than if there is a dangerous level of carbon monoxide buildup in the room. It's a bit like going to the doctor and having them tell you that you are extremely sick and then leaving without a diagnosis.

 

When I reached out to support on the issue they said the most likely case is that the Arlo is malfunctioning. Which is also not reassuing.

Read this... I would do a reset of the Baby's air sensor

And this may help;

As to the Baby's response, I do fine that any cleaning products ( or sprays like lysol ) set the reading very high,

but also if the door is closed sometimes just the baby breathing if close can raise it a bit.

As a side, I can see when we cook in the kitchen at times cause the readings on VOCs go up ( bedroom down the hall from kitchen with door open )

But really do a reset and give it a day or two to stablize

best
