Arlo Video Doorbell Compatible With Base Station, Cameras, and Chime

My idea is too make the video doorbell as best as you can (Arlo). Like compitable with basestation and cameras and chime.

Please update the Arlo Chime to work with the Video Doorbell, allowing both doorbell and motion detection notifications to be heard.

Ring Chime has this feature and it would be great if Arlo did too.

We greatly appreciate the community’s contribution and will keep the status of this idea updated as we get new information on its potential implementation. Thank you for posting your idea!

The video doorbell should be able to trigger other Ultra/Pro cameras. According to support, you cannot trigger a device that is attached to the SmartHub unless the triggering device is attached to the hub.

It would be very useful to have the video doorbell work with the Arlo Chime


In addition it have the option to integrate with the hub and the rest of the existing Arlo system in my home instead of being so stand alone.


Have the option of connecting the Video Door bell to base station for Local Video storage .  I see alot of people would purchase this with this as an option.  


Allow the Video doorbell to connect to the smart hub base.
