Custom alert sounds for Android/iOS

Really need to customize the notification sound.  For instance, I want to be alerted to motion on some cameras while sleeping, but the notification sound is not enough to do that because it is too brief and I just sleep right through it.  Would be nice to select an mp3, or at least provide some more aggressive options for alerts.  Perhaps even per camera custom sounds, as one can do with ringtones for different contacts.


Adding my vote to this feature. It seems like such a simple thing to do. At least let the app have its own notification sound. Even better would be if each camera could have its own notification sound.

It would be great to configure the type of alert tone you receive on your iPhone. Currently the alert is the default iPhone notification tone, so can can't tell it apart from the hundreds of other apps that use the same standard tone. It would be good to have a selection in iPhone Notification Settings.

With the wireless camera's I would like to be able to adjust the "pushed notification" sound.  Currently, it is a sound that does not wake me when I am sleeping.  I need something that will sound off a minimum of 5 seconds.  I would like "a sound"I could pick also.  In my opinion not having this option does not make this device desireable, because I am not alert sound is ineffective during sleep hours.

Yet another vote to allow change Arlo notification sounds to be customized to something louder than standard notification sound on iPhone. Get on it please. Make it part of enhanced subscription if you want. There you go, an incentive for YOU!🤑

I agree my wife had to change her text tone and she's had it forever not the biggest thing I'd like to see done but at some point, look around the idea exchange I'm pretty sure someone has this with a lot of kudos and add one more

I need for each camera to have different alert sound.


Another vote to support this feature.

It's been over a year since I asked for this feature. Nothing. This would be a simple change to the app.  


This should be standard in the App. C'mon Netgear
