temporary disarmed

when going out to water my yard for example, I disarm the system to avoid wasting batteries on dozens of recordings.

but thewn I sometimes forget to put it back on;

I would love a feature in Disarm mode where I could disarm for n minutes; (then auto switch back to schedule)


I was just coming here to suggest something like this, but I would have use the term "supress alerts" and would like to see it on the actual notification on my phone, not in the app - for example, my neighbors gardeners have turned up; thanks, Arlo, I know. Now be quite for an hour.

We greatly appreciate the community’s contribution and will keep the status of this idea updated as we get new information on its potential implementation. Thank you for posting your idea!


Arlo shouldn't be to hard to set up.  My Ring door bell has that feature and it works great.  At 73 years of age the memory is not what it use to be.  I have to turn of one or two cameras all the time.  Gadener, Landscaper, Wife BBQ, Working in the garage, you get the picture now.  Having a 15min,30min,1hr,2hr snooze on alerts would be great feature.  Other than that the five camers I have are working great.  Recommend them all the time to friends and family.

Much Need feature. Several times when entertaining outside i disarm my camera. Only to forget to turn it back on. We need a "sleep mode". IE disable for 30min,60min 1 hour ect. Maybe also include a fetaure that after is on "sleep mode" for X hours the camera will automatically turn on.


I had just logged in to suggest this exact same feature.  It would be GREAT to be able to dis-arm for "n" minutes... or even just to have a few options... like 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes... etc.
