Why can't I turn off Push Notifications?

If you turned on audio alerts (Smoke/CO Alarm or All Other Audio) in Arlo Smart Notifications, you can’t turn off push notifications when creating or editing a mode for your Arlo device.

When any audio alerts are turned on, Push Notifications must be turned on to ensure that your Arlo camera sends notifications. Arlo cameras use battery power every time they record, so it’s important that you’re aware when you have an audio alert option(s) turned on.

To turn off the Push Notifications setting:

  1. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at my.arlo.com.
  2. Tap or click Settings > Smart Notifications.
  3. Select your Arlo device.
  4. In the Audio Alerts section, deselect Smoke/CO Alarm and All Other Audio.
  5. Tap or click Mode.
  6. Tap or click the pencil icon of the mode you want to edit and clear Push Notifications checkbox.
