Record video based on the smart feature that is set?



Can Arlo add a feature where it only records the video based on the smart feature that is set.


eg - if I set the smart video recording to person only, rather than motion or sound, then it only records video when when it detects a person.


I have an issue that one camera which has high traffic and turns the camera offline/stops recording until I reset the base station(maybe I have an issue with the camera). I think having too many recording on the one camera in a short space of time may be the issue. Or fix this issue.

Hi Ant_T,


This feature is available when your cameras are subscribed to Arlo Smart. You can read more about it here: What is Arlo Smart and how can I benefit from it?


Hello, this is NOT possible. You can only select which notifications you receive, not specific videos are recorded. 


If I am wrong, please send me specific instructions on how to do this.
