New live feed view

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.

Re: Alarm Selector strip shows in video screen

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.

Re: New live feed view

Just an FYI - there were people who complained loudly here about the previous location of the alarm which is at least partly why it got rearranged.

Two wrongs don’t make a right. As OP says it blocks the view!!!

I needs moving. Or making smaller.

Re: Alarm Selector strip shows in video screen

Yes The Devices tab where you can live view now shows a strip, it stays viewable even when screen is expanded. Its intrusive , and as a video guy, I feel its un- needed on that screen, unless it can be removed by the users.

Re: New live feed view

I am well aware of that, but they should not have put it as a giant black bar on the live feed

Arlo Baby & iOS app update 2.5.0

Really..... Arlo, now when I open my Arlo Baby camera in full screen in the iOS app there is a large button on the top of the page to activate the alarm on my system ( I also have a base station and Arlo Pro cameras). I can see this going well for users. What are these people thinking, oh wait, they aren’t thinking about Arlo baby users.... nothing has changed. Fix this ASAP... I do not need an option to set off my system alarm when viewing my baby camera! That’s one way to get a spouse to help with diaper changes.

Is this for iOS? I have no problem with Android.

Latest Arlo iPhone app update issue - Alarm button in the way

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.

Re: New live feed view

Agreed! Put the alarm 'button' back the way it was, or resize/ reposition it because it's blocking the view! Jeeze Arlo, your philosophy regarding these app updates seems to be "Two steps forward one step back"!

It is for an iOS device (iPhone 7s)

Am seeing this intermittently on my iPhone.. Looks like Arlo's fixing it or playing with it like some kid playing with the remote TV... Dunno' for sure..

I agree with MSP66. The alarm button in the live view is obtrusive, and needs to disappear when in full screen mode.

I agree. There needs to be a way to disable this! Just destroyed the view of my beach camera.

Re: Latest Arlo iPhone app update issue - Alarm button in the way

I too agree with MSP66, the alarm button needs to be relocated so that the full screen is visable when in the horizontal position.

Re: New live feed view

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.
