What rules are available for my Arlo Security Light system?

Each mode consists of one or more rules that provide detailed instructions for your Arlo system. For each mode, you can set the following options:

  • Trigger device. The trigger device is the light that detects motion.
  • Trigger. You can adjust the motion detection sensitivity to minimize false alarms.
  • Devices. Motion detection on one light can trigger another device to turn on. For example, you might want your driveway light to trigger your front door light or your front yard camera (sold separately) to turn on.
  • Action. Specify the action that occurs when motion is detected.
  • Notifications. When a trigger is detected, Arlo can send you push notifications, email alerts, or both. You can also choose to send email alerts to friends, family members, pet sitters, or anyone who might need to respond when a light is triggered.

The Arlo app guides you through the process of setting up your Arlo system and telling it what you want it to do, but the Arlo knowledge base also offers detailed instructions to help you get the most out of your Arlo Smart Home Security System.
