Add volume button to Arlo Baby hardware

Picture the scene: You're sleeping upstairs in your room, your baby is next door, and you forgot your phone somewhere else (in the car, downstairs in the kitchen, down the side of the sofa etc). You hear the baby cry next door. You go in to their room, use the buttons on the side of the camera to turn on the light and music. You forgot the music is set to max volume, and want to turn it down. You can't, because you have to go searching for your phone first.


Idea: having volume up/down buttons on the camera would be great (call it + and - buttons). There should be space next to the existing light/music buttons to accommodate these.

Ideally these same buttons could also be used to adjust the brightness of the light.

e.g. click the light button, then when you tap the +/- buttons the brightness adjust. Then tap the music button, and when you the tap same +/- buttons the volume will adjust.

Hey @numb15,


Thanks for posting your idea! Our development team routinely reviews posts in the Arlo Idea Exchange to assess which features the community would like to see implemented. We greatly appreciate your contribution and will keep the status of this idea updated as we get new information on its potential implementation. 


Seems like Arlo could easily reprogram the behavior of the existing Music and Light hardware buttons to an "Off, Low, Medium, High" behaviour for volume and brightness.
