Hello,

 

I just bought the Arlo wire-free.  However, every time the camera detects motion - there is a noise, how I turn that off and the red light? I thought the object is to catch not to let the world in.

 

Thank you,

Model: VMC3030 | Arlo Wire-Free Camera

The click is the IR filter moving for proper nighttime recording.  The Pro cameras don't use the filter so no noise.  the click should be rather quiet, however, and really shouldn't be too noticeable, especially with any background noise.

The IR illuminators emit a dull red glow when light levels are too low for normal recording. It's normal operation and needed for night vision.

Thank you,   

 

I do understand that, however, what about the clicking noise that goes along with the light and motion.
