Arlo Doorbell Ringtone

Is there anyway to change the ring when someone pushes the doorbell?  It rings my normal phone ring.  I can only seem to customize the motion notifications.


Not that I've been able to find.  My dog now associates that ringtone with people at the door which is fun whenever I get a call (I work from home so becoming quite often).  Beyond that, it would be nice to know from the tone whether it's the doorbell or a call.

So....when the button is pressed, you get a brief popup notifcation on a phone, then the phone rings with your normal phone ringtone.  There should be a setting that allows for you to configure the notification sounds...not*just* your default ringtone

I think this is a very important feature. Do be able to hear if it's an ordinary phone call or if it's Arlo Doorbell that is calling... 

Why not let sound as a door chime when it rings 🙂


This is for iOS. Just figured it out. If you go to Recent and click on the “i” on the right, you will see the incoming call time and right below that you will see “Ringtone”. Click on that and you can change the ringtone for all future calls. Didn’t think I’d be the only one. Hope this helps. 


I have an iPhone XS and didn't see "Ringtone" as an option; I did as Hotsparks said, "If you go to Recent and click on the “i” on the right", but then select "Create New Contact".  Name it whatever you'd like and assign it the ringtone of your choice.
