How do I enable silent mode on my Arlo Doorbell?

Silent mode allows you to temporarily disable incoming calls, Arlo Chime melodies, and/or traditional chime rings on your Arlo Essential Video Doorbell or Arlo Audio Doorbell.

To enable silent mode:

  1. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at my.arlo.com.
  2. Tap or click Settings > My Devices.
  3. Select your Arlo Video Doorbell or Audio Doorbell.
    Alternatively, tap or click the Settings icon for your Arlo Video Doorbell in the Devices screen.
  4. Tap or click Silent Mode.
  5. Move the Silent Mode slider to enable or disable silent mode.

When Silent Mode is enabled, all of the doorbell-press notifications are disabled by default. If you want your chime to ring or receive a phone call when someone presses your doorbell, you can move the individual sliders to enable each feature. When the toggle is green, the feature is enabled.

  • Incoming Call. Your mobile device will receive a call when someone presses your Arlo doorbell.
  • Traditional Chime. The chime that you wired your Arlo doorbell to will ring when someone presses your Arlo doorbell.
    Note: This option is only available if your doorbell is connected to a traditional chime.
  • [Arlo Chime Name]. If you paired an Arlo Chime to your Arlo doorbell, the Arlo Chime will ring when someone presses your Arlo doorbell.

Note: When Silent Mode is enabled, third-party smart home assistants—such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant—are disabled for your Arlo doorbell.
