Mode activated when mobile device is connected to wifi router

Hi Arlo

Could you have a mode that can automatically activate / deactivate when your personal device (mobile) is connected/disconnected to the same wifi router as the Arlo system?  


It would be better and more reliable than using geofencing.

Hi dannyknight,


That is actually a really good idea, I would definitely be using this feature.


Much more reliable. My phone knows when I am within zone everytime with out fail. Sadly GPS is to hit and miss.

Only issue is what happens when wifi is down??

But I guess if that happens your cameras are useless anyway.
