How do I select a mode for my Arlo Security Light System?

You can turn modes on and off or set modes to activate according to a schedule.  Use the following methods when you are not using a schedule to control a mode or when you want to override an existing schedule.

You must use at least one mode. Each light is always in a mode, even if that mode is set to do nothing.

To select a mode:

  1. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at
  2. Tap or click Mode.
  3. Tap or click the Bridge for which you want to change the mode.
  4. The Mode page displays.
  5. Tap or click a mode to activate it.
    The mode that you selected turns on immediately. The mode stays active until you change it.
    The orange motion detection icon displays for your Arlo Security Light on the Devices page whenever motion detection is enabled.
