Why does the Arlo Security Light not have an alarm/siren on it? This would be an easy additional feature that would help detour would be intruders...an easy addition to the light and feature on the app. 

 

The alarm on the home base is great but is only good to detour those inside of the house. An alarm on the light would help to do the same on the outside and hopefully prevent someone from entering.

 

Does anyone else agree? 

 

Arlo Team,

 

Is this something we can see hopefully in the near future? I believe the ring spotlight cam has one on it.

 

Thanks,

Because it is a light, not an alarm system.

 

To get what you want, you can combine your lights with an Arlo Pro camera system which has a base station that has an alarm. Then you can set lights/camera rules to trigger the alarm.
