Re: Latest Arlo iPhone app update issue - Alarm button in the way
Regarding the new live feed under the latest App update: the alarm banner partially blocks of the view.
I understand why it put there, to easily access the alarm, but I don't think it's a good idea.
Solved! Go to Solution.
We wanted to update everyone when you're viewing in landscape full screen, you should not see the "alarm" bar obscuring the live stream video; instead you should see a red-white shield icon on the top-right hand corner on the full screen video.
What do you mean by "video screen?" The Devices tab where you can live view? If so, the alarm is now able to be selected by a pull-down tab (Android) or gray strip (iOS) near the top of the screen but should normally remain out of view until you click on it.
I needs moving. Or making smaller.
The latest app update has the "Alarm" button in the view when viewing live. It's at the top so not too bad when the iPhone is vertical but when you switch to horizontal and full screen, the "Alarm" button does not dissapear and it is right in the view of the live feed. There doesn't seem to be a way to hide it so a good portion of the real estate on the screen is taken up. If it could either be a smaller icon/button or better yet, have it dissapear with the menu when you tap the screen for full screen.
On my camera setup (4 Arlo Pro 2 cams) just now I noticed I could go to live view, then press pause, and the audio from the live stream would not stop. Live view stayed working even though it had the "live" button back in the middle of the view, and I had to force quit the app to make it stop.
