I receive many notifications from a specific camera, and I would like to exclude this camera from the notifications.

At the same time, I don't want to turn this camera OFF, so that the Arlo Ultra base keeps recording videos, but do not send notification about this specific camera.

Is there a way to do this?

I would like to select from which connected camera to receive movement notifications, keeping the recording active.

For example: I don't want to receive anytime motion notification from Camera 1, but I want it to be ON for recording.

This feature has been wished in other posts of the ARLO community.

If you have a subscription for the camera, then you can go into the smart notifications settings in the app or the web ui.  You then select the camera, and you can choose the notification types you want to disable (people, vehicles, animals, all other motion).

 

You can also change the rule for the camera so that it never notifies you.  If you do that, you probably should create a new mode, and not just edit Armed.  https://kb.arlo.com/42/What-are-modes-and-rules-and-how-does-Arlo-use-them

 

If you are receiving too many unwanted recordings from the camera, you could also 

  • adjust the camera position,
  • set up activity zones, or
  • reduce motion sensitivity.
