Custom alert sounds

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.

Yes, this would be a great improvement.

I would love to be able to change to different notification sounds.  I monitor my father's system as well as my own.  To be able to tell whose house is setting off the cameras without looking would be wonderful!

It would be nice if the iPhone XR would allow me to change the alert sound sent to my phone when my camera's capture movement.

Add me to the list.  Definitely need an Arlo notification sound that's different from the text sound.  This would change the iPhone app from a 4 star to 5 star.  Can't be that difficult.

This used to work under the old, soon to be discontinued, app. What kind of product managers, and QA people does this company have when they take away a key feature like being able to customer the sound? 

 

AM getting disenfranchised with ARLO. They seem not to care about product quality.

So far my cameras are basically worthless. I need to be able to change my push notification sound/tone for my iPhone. I do not wake up to one little weak tone. Help!!!!!!

Hello

I've broken into last night.

Arlo security was on but the alarm on my iPhone was so quiet. I and my husband couldn't get up even my phone was near my pillow.

I have seen same question on internet over 3 years and I contacted customer support, and speaking with him(indian guy, he was so rude) and he was trying ignore my question(How to put a volume up on my iPhone or change ring tone?) and end up hang up on me.

This is not professional.

really disappointed with arlo customer service.

Can anyone answer my question?

Just got ripped off again due to not waking up from notifications.  Can I change the tone and volume?  Purchased this year and updated app/firmware/software.

A solution of sorts for iPhone users...

 

I just went through the whole process of trying to set alerts on my iPhone.  Frustrating. 

 

However, Alexa to the rescue.  My bedside Amazon device announces very loudly that the Arlo has been triggered.  Just set up in your Alexa app and at least takes care of the issue when you are in range of a Amazon device.

 

Working on Alexa also turning on bedside light with an Arlo motion trigger.
