How do I create a rule that includes a siren trigger?

To create a rule that includes a siren trigger, you must create a new mode or edit an existing mode. These instructions explain how to edit an existing mode.

Note: Only Arlo Ultra, Pro 3, Pro 2, Pro, or Wire-Free cameras connected to a SmartHub or Base Station with Siren can trigger the siren.

  2. Tap or click Mode.
  3. Tap or click the Arlo SmartHub or Arlo Pro base station for which you would like to add a siren trigger.
  4. Tap the pencil icon or click > next to the mode that you would like to edit.
  5. Under Rules, tap the pencil icon or click Edit next to the device that you want to trigger the siren.
  6. Select the Turn alarm ON check box.
  7. Tap the pencil icon or click > next to Turn alarm ON.
