Are the infrared LEDs on Arlo cameras visible at night?

Yes, Arlo cameras display an array of red dots around their lenses when their infrared LEDs are on. The red glow indicates that the infrared LEDs are active. These LEDs aid the night vision capability of the Arlo cameras.

Arlo Baby’s infrared LEDs are much dimmer than the night vision LEDs on other Arlo cameras. Bright infrared LEDs can distract babies and keep them from sleeping, so Arlo Baby’s infrared LEDs are almost invisible, but still provide excellent low-light performance.

You can turn night vision on and off on any Arlo camera. For more information about turning the infrared LEDs off, visit How do I turn my camera’s night vision on and off in my Arlo app?.
