How do I turn the siren on my Arlo camera on or off?

Arlo Ultra, Pro, and Essential series cameras have an integrated siren that can be activated manually or set to activate when motion or sound is detected.

If you want the siren to trigger when motion or sound is detected, ensure that your camera’s siren is set to activate in its currently selected mode. For more information, visit What are modes and rules and how does Arlo use them?.

To manually turn the siren on or off:

  1. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at
    The Devices page displays.
  2. Tap or click the shield icon in the upper-right corner of the Devices page.
  3. Tap or click Activate Siren.
    The Activate Siren page displays.
    If you have multiple compatible cameras, you are prompted to select one.
  4. Swipe the siren icon to the right.
    The siren on your Arlo camera is now active.
  5. Turn off the siren by tapping or clicking the slider at the top of the Devices page.
