Re: Arlo Pro and Security Light False Triggering
Regarding false triggering, how do you "disable" the security light to avoid alerts when don't want them? I have the motion sensitivity turned down to 1 and nothing changes.
FYI, I also have the Arlo camera system and I can easily turn off/on individual cameras; just cant seem to find a way to do the same with the lights? I must be missing something!
Make sure you rmotion sensitivity is set in your modes and rules, not the test. Also, create modes and rules as needed for specific time periods and then use the schedule to automate switching. Any mode without a rule for a light disarms the light. There are FAQs here on how to set up modes and rules for cameras - the same works for the lights.
There's no On/Off switch for the lights. Use the Disarmed mode instead.
This is helpful: "Make sure you rmotion sensitivity is set in your modes and rules, not the test. "
I am getting false activation of 1 light. Very frustrated. Will try the above.
Then I may have to submit a hardware problem ticket.
I've just written off Arlo as not ready for prime time. It is better than nothng but not by much. Alerts that come 10-20 minutes after something is deteced by the lights is worthless. Sometimes they alert right away buit other times 10-20 minutes later or when you wake your phone.
