I went round and round on this. Finally found the slider control that holds record time is in the armed settings. Each camera should be listed and when selected adjust and save setting. That worked for me.

keep in mind, if you are usinfg a custom mode, you need to make the changes there and not in "armed".  (similar happened to me after also not making the saved mistake

When I follow the instructions to change the recorded time, it sends me to sensitivity and says nothing about 10 to 120 seconds.
So frustrated with this mode system and rules editing!. Ten seconds just doesn't give us enough time to see what is happening.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Step by step to change recording time has been posted numberous times including earlier in this thread.

If you've landed in sensitivity, you're not following the step by step.

You're in mode but in Motion is detected and not in Record Video which is further down.

You can personalize your Arlo cameras to record videos from approximately 10 to 120 seconds long. On Arlo Pro Wire-Free, Arlo Q, and Arlo Q Plus cameras, you can also set your camera to record until motion stops, up to 300 seconds (5 minutes).

    Note: If Record Video is not selected, you cannot edit recording length.

Keep in mind that you want your motion detection working right so that you aren't getting unnecessary triggers and wasting your batteries. Check out this video to on how to set up motion detection:

 

 

There are rechargeable batteries available so make sure to pick them up if you don't want to keep buying new batteries.

They could add this information to manual. 64 pages and such important information is not there! As a customer i want to use the product and not spend days with experiments. sorry for that, have better things to do.

Thats the main reason why there are FAQs and forums for stuff that didn't make it into the manual.

Assuming you mean record time.

Mode - armed - edit - record video

drag the slider to the desired length.

Go back to edit and save.

Does that work for the default modes or the ones that you create yourself?
