Timelapse feature


Please include a Timelapse feature in the Arlo APP. i just want

to view what happened throughout the day rather than viewing it at different times.

Would like to see it record a few minutes every 30mins or so. Currently you can set up schedules,

why not expand this feature into timelapse. This will be a great feature to have as none of the other

brands have this. And its well needed. Sometimes you dont have celluar signals or wifi. This fixes that

loop hole.

Thank you,



   Hi there!

It would be nice to have an option to change video playback speed.

Sometimes I need to go through 7 hours of video to find specific moment. And without 2x or 4x speed increase, it takes 7 hours of watching through videos.


Timelapse would be great. 


fast forward feature is badly needed. Its hard to go thru long videos


Yes, yes, yes! I want this! I want to decide when the cameras should record! One thing would be at times there the motion detection is not suffissient. But there are also other times where you could want to take snapshots. E.g. at nights when there are Northern lights (Aurora Borealis Explained), i would have loved to take snapshots every 5 minute. 

This maybe an old thread ,but I noticed Logitech have the new Circle 2 camera which have Time-lapse feature included for FREE. 1 day recording is also free. I am going to test the Circle but since it has been so long and my Arlo Q's still have no time-lapse, I may ended up getting the Circle 2.

A time lapse feature could be neat in some scenarios.
