Security issue Arlo Baby - No Alert in case of connection drop

Currently when connection between the monitoring device and the Arlo baby camera drops there is no alarm tone on the monitoring device. This way (even if there is just a short problem with wifi or internet) the connection drops and you might be hours without monitoring during the night while you have received no information about the dropping connection during sleep. This is a very dangerous situation for the baby!
Therefore a loud alarm tone on the monitoring device should be played in case of any connection drop to the camera. Ideally this should have to be confirmed on the screen by the user before the alarm stops! Please immediately close this security issue!!!!

Has this been followed up at all or is the feature now available? This is the first thing that came to mind when I started looking at purchasing a wifi connected baby monitor. I'm keen to buy the Arlo Baby but at this point will probably go for the traditional radio monitor for stability and to avoid the possibility of un-alerted disconnects... People can't be trusting that their WiFi (even simply their power supply!!) will work 100% of the time, can they?
