I've just rechived my new Arlo Pro cameras. So far so good. I have a few questions however if anyone can help.


1. All clips I record are limited to 10secs long. Is there a way to increase this?


2. The black front plate looks out of place in my flat. Are there any white front face plates anyone knows of?


3. I'm using geofrencing which seems to work well. However is there a way to use this via Apple Watch? Sometimes I leave my phone at home, but always have my watch with me.

#2 no....

#3 not to my knowledge ... tho the watch can do many things, TBMK, it still relies on some of the processing in the iphone to do all functions
