Doorbell Calls should also ring on Apple Watch

Please add the ability that when a call is being recieved from the Arlo Doorbell it rings/notifies on Apple Watch as well, just like a regular phone call does. I keep my phone on silent most of the time and get calls/notifications on my watch, and when watch is on phone is silenced automatically.  The calls show up in the phone app so I'd expect them to ring on the watch just like any other call.

This feature is sorely lacking. I, too, keep my phone on silent and expect call notifications to be pushed to my watch. I’m not going to start monitoring my phone again just because somebody might ring my doorbell. That defeats the purpose of having the watch. Arlo should push a watch notification when someone rings the doorbell. Please!!

I noticed that for some reason the calls that ring on my iPhone and iPad do not ring on my WiFi Apple Watch.  I’m not so much expecting to receive video, but maybe speak or at the very least it would be nice to be able to hang up the call from your watch.  Being handicapped it’s nice being able to control calls from my watch. That being one of the reasons I got the watch.

I agree. Being handicapped, I like being able to control things from my watch. At the very least I should be able to talk and hang up.

Good evening all!

 

Does anyone know if it is possible that my Apple Watch could ring at the same time when my iPhone rings?

 

For example, I know when someone calls to FaceTime me my watch will ring at the same time but simply display a message that it needs to be answered from my iPhone.

 

thanks all!
