Will we be able to use the Arlo Baby 7" touchscreen with multiple baby cameras?

Yes, This will behave much like the current mobile app. Multiple cameras will be able to be added to the touchscreen.

Good question.... wish we knew too.

 

They are due for release in Spring 2017... no one here has seen them yet.

That is great news!

 

One more question

 

Since I know this will supposedly be able to stream offline, will the multiple cameras be able to be viewed live at the same time?

abesai,

 

The behavior will be much like the current mobile app. Multiple viewable/streamable cameras on the home screen. More information on this will be made available soon.

Conversely, can I have two monitors showing the same camera so we can leave one upstairs and use one downstairs?

Looking forward to the display.  Having the Audio On on my cell phone makes it rather warm overnight....

Can you clarify, will it be able to connect to other Arlo products? Not just Arlo Baby.

The Arlo Baby 7” Touchscreen Display, shipping in Summer of 2017, will be available for purchase as an add-on to your existing Arlo Baby camera for $99.99, or in a set with the Arlo Baby camera for $329.99.

 

In its Direct Connect mode, the display will allow for live streaming of video from the Arlo Baby camera without the need for an Internet connection. Cloud features such as remote live streaming and Library access will not be available from the tablet in Direct Connect mode. The display can also connect to the cloud via WiFi, just like a regular smart tablet. When connected to WiFi, the tablet will have all the cloud features as you would expect from the Arlo mobile app, and allow you to access all devices on your Arlo account.

Here is what we really need to know!

 

I need 2 Arlo Baby monitors because I have two kids. (I also have Arlo Pro cameras.)

 

Will the mobile app and/or touch screen support flipping back and forth between just the 2 baby cameras?

 

I don't currently have the baby model. But I'm not aware of how to use Arlo Pro and rotate through just certain cameras in a live view via the Android app. This is critical functionality for baby monitors.

You did not answer my question at all. 

 

I need to know if there is a way to pick just 2 of my cameras and rotate the live view between them to monitor them.

 How on Earth do we know when it hasn't even been released yet?

They are the manufacturer. They should know?

 

Also, my question applies to the normal iOS/Android app too.

spo81rty,

 

You will be able to live stream more than one camera simultaneously. I will escalate your question and see if I can't find out more information on how this will be displayed on the monitor. I will post an update as soon as I can.
