Currently the Arlo Schedule Mode defaults to Armed with Video Motion and Audio, at least I presume this is the case. In my case I do not want that. I would suggest you add the possibility to incorporate a USER defined mode to the Schedule mode. For example, in my case, I would want to "take a PICTURE" whenever the camera hears a SOUND.

This is already possible.

 

But you have to create your user defined mode before you can add it to the schedule.

You cannot take a picture with sound triggers. You can start recordings with sound triggers.

 

Just add a  mode. (Call it Sound?) Then build rules for the cameras that have to respond to sound triggers.

 

What are modes and rules and how does Arlo use them?

 

How do I configure and use the Schedule option?
