Temporarily suspend video and audio recording

It would be nice to have a mode called "Temporarily Suspend" that disables the current mode for a set period of time (30 min, 1 hr, 2 hr, etc).  This would allow a user to turn off all cameras but they would automatically return to the previous mode after the set period of time.


+1 for this feature.  Without this feature, what is the best way to even deactivate a schedule without losing it?  I tried to turn off my schedule, but it seemed the camera was already in motion sensing mode.  So I wound up setting the "All motion off" rule on the page where you turn on the schedule..  That seems to have done the trick, I just have to remember to turn the schedule back on after the yard work is done for the day.


Very happy with product performance, ease of use and installation.  When home for the day it would be handy to have a button on Mode page to Deactivate until next scheduled event.  Currently user needs to remember to turn back on at end of day.

A very useful suggestion, thanks for sharing!

Are there any plans to create a snooze function for the Arlo schedule (or even for when the camera is set to motion on)?

There are times when the camera is set to motion on and I get alerts eg the window cleaner is in the garden. Rather than having the turn the Schedule completely off (and then later having to remember to turn it on) to avoid getting repeated notifications, it would be better if I could select to snooze the camera for a selected period (15,30,45,60 min) after which it will revert back to the schedule.

good idea....


Best is if you post your idea here ;


If it gets a lot of 'kudos' then maybe it will get picked up




I have 2 modes: "All Motion On" and "All Motion On minus Front Door". I like to leave "All Motion On" whenever possible, but don't want to be alerted whenever I leave the house.


I would love to be able to pull down my notification bar (iOS) and tap a "snooze" button to switch from "All Motion On" (or whatever my current mode is) to "All Motion On minus Front Door" (or any other mode) for 1,5,10,X minutes and then switch back to whatever the original mode was.


I would agree with this.  I've been trying to figure out the best work around.  I'm trying to figure out if rule #1 can "trigger" the video camera, rule #2 turns off the video camera (ie it triggers once), put it in one mode and then run the mode "once an hour".




On sunny mornings the camera will get triggered a lot for about 20m or so and extremely frequently so I disarm it.  But I tend to forget to arm it again.


Same kind of thing happens if I have work to do out in the yard I'll disarm it before going out but forget to arm it again. 


So a pause for X time would be quite awesome.

I agree with Dspeers. Same thing happen to me all the time. I disarm my cameras and I forgot to turn the system back on. .

I like the idea of an On/Off Arm/Disarm widget, and was going to ask for one for iOS devices.
