How do I pan, zoom, or change the field of view on my Arlo Baby camera?

You can change what Arlo Baby sees and records by panning, zooming, or changing the camera’s field of view in Arlo Baby’s video settings.

To pan and zoom your Arlo Baby camera:

  1. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at my.arlo.com.
    The Devices page displays.
  2. In the lower right of your Arlo Baby camera feed, tap or click the menu icon ().
  3. Select Device Settings > Video Settings.
  4. Scroll down to the image that shows what Arlo Baby sees and tap or click Snapshot to take an updated picture of what Arlo Baby sees from its current position.
  5. To pan and zoom using a mobile device:
    • Use the pinch gesture to zoom in and out.
    • Touch and drag to move around the zoomed-in snapshot.
  6. To pan and zoom using a computer:
    • Drag the corners of the orange box to zoom in and out.
      The box might be difficult to see because it is on the edge of the snapshot.
    • Click and drag the entire box until only the area that you want to view is inside it.
  7. After you are done adjusting the area that Arlo Baby sees and records, tap or click Save.

 

To change the field of view on your Arlo Baby camera:

  1. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at my.arlo.com.
    The Devices page displays.
  2. In the lower right of your Arlo Baby camera feed, tap or click the menu icon ().
  3. Select Device Settings > Video Settings.
  4. Scroll down to the image that shows what Arlo Baby sees and tap or click Snapshot to take an updated picture.
  5. Tap or click Field of View and select one of the five options.
    The default field of view is 110°, which is a good compromise between image fidelity and a wide field of view. If you choose the narrowest or widest field of view options, you might see some image distortion in Arlo Baby’s videos and snapshots.
  6. If you are using the Arlo app, tap Save.
    If you are using a computer, your settings are already saved.
  7. Tap or click Snapshot again.
  8. Keep adjusting the field of view and taking snapshots until you like how the snapshot looks.
