Keep active locations in the camera's field of view. Your Arlo Go camera has a 110-degree viewing angle. Position your camera so that the space that you want to monitor is within the camera's field of view.
Elevate your camera. Mount your Arlo motion-detection camera at least 7 feet (2.1 meters) above the floor or ground and aim it slightly downward for the best sensor performance.
Ensure that side-to-side traffic crosses Arlo's field of view. Arlo's motion sensor is much more sensitive to side-to-side movement across its field of view than to movement directly toward or away from the camera. The best area for motion detection is 5 feet to 20 feet (1.5 to 6 meters) from the camera position.
If you are not sure whether your camera can capture motion from its current position, you can check using the motion detection test, then move the camera or adjust the camera's motion sensitivity if necessary.
