Alarm Function

Does anyone know if the Alarm will sound on only one camer if activity is detected, or will it sound on all devices connected to the base station?

Re: Alarm Function

the siren is in the base not the cameras.... so it will come from the base only

New Product Idea- external alarm built into the upcoming floodlight!!!!  


External Alarm will be much more beneficial when people are down by nefarious things OUTSIDE the house!

Unless the person or persons have already broken into the establishment, the alarm itself will doubtfully be a deterent.  The alarm is inside on the base station and cannot be heard outside unless they are near the wall where the base station is located.  I find this a real disappointment.

Take a look here for more information on the siren feature:


How do I turn the Arlo Pro base station siren on or off?

How do I create a rule that includes a siren trigger?

Yes, but it would be nice to have the siren sound of the cameras as well to further act as a deterrant for someone coming back later on.
