Why Doesn't Arlo Offer A "Standard" Baby Monitor Mode?
Why doesn't this device offer the most basic of functions offered by other monitors? By that I mean I simply want audio from the device when the threshold is exceeded. Cheap competitors have offered this for years - the baby cries loud enough, you get audio and/or and video of what's happening.
All Arlo seems to offer is either an "always on" mode, where you hear every squeak and whimper (things that usually do not require attention) or the standard notification, which does not wake me up like the actual audio from the nursery. What's even worse is that notifications are not always received at night, which is exactly when they're needed.
If I need to buy a comparatively low-tech option, that's fine. Am I missing something, or did Netgear overlook the simplest of functions?
