Show image/snapshot when motion is detected

I get alerts that there is motion occurring. I have a camera at my front door. There are no windows, and I would like to know who is ringing my doorbell. It would be nice to have the option to have an image sent with the alert. It takes awhile to open the app and play the video. I guess a snapshot or delayed live stream accessible with one click would do it. Using iOS.

I think that would be a great improvment to my arlo system

Netgear seems seems to be continually up grading Arlo's hardware and software with new features. I really like that fact. I looked and looked for this idea and am suprised that it has not been implemented or suggested.

 

I would like to see the first frame of detection sent via push. I know via email a snapshot is taken of the event so it shouldn't be that difficult to implement it as it does a push for motion detection. 

 

Keep up the great work Netgear/Arlo.

Addition to a push snapshot, it would be great to push the snapshot to the Apple Watch.

Could it be possible to get a display page that change camera view every maybe 10 seconds? Like other camera systems? 
So that you could use the system in a store and it then change the view between the cameras on the screen.

Any update on this feature? I have bought two Arlo Pros but am holding off buying more because of this feature alone, if you ever release this and person detection I'm all in. I use iVideon for my ip cams its free software thatPerforming "Goodbye!" for you as requested, because Arrival Sensor - Brent's iPhone left works well. One of my favorites features is that I get a push snapshot of the activity on both my iPhone and iWatch getting it on the iWatch is absolutely awesome.

VERY important and basic feature that I would expected !

- Show the picture snapshot as you do on email

- Show the name of the camera [Would like the option to add my Camera name on the email subject line - by default or with an user selection]. (Not all camera's are as important to review the alert and right now I dont have a way to differentiate the email.)
