I would like to see a botton located on the "Devices" screen that would instantly activate "Live" on all cameras simutaneously.

Hi @Morgans072408,


Thanks for posting your idea! Our development team routinely reviews posts in the Arlo Idea Exchange to assess which features the community would like to see implemented. We greatly appreciate your contribution and will keep the status of this idea updated as we get new information on its potential implementation. 


This would really be helpful, there will be times someone is walking around outside going in different places fast and it would be nice to click view all instantly to see everything at the same time. 


A useful idea BUT..

This might be a bandwidth issue downloading 3, 4 or 5 video feeds at the same time.

Thus I would suspect that each feed would have to be downloaded in turn.?

Alternatively we could download mini video pictures in a low format and then click on the video feed which is of special interest to get the higher quality video feed.?


A good idea but needs some thought as to how to actuate.


Again this would be a great time for the bandwidth pinched to have a refreshed image taken when the app is opened. 


Many folks do have enough bandwidth to support this (at least locally), and of course several have requested simultaneous live streaming.


If implemented, it would be important to synchronize the video streams.


There would need to be a limit on the number of cameras that could be streamed simultanously (there are customers with lots of cameras).
