Name your Arlo cameras

Before integrating your cameras with the SmartThings app, make sure that your cameras have easy-to-understand names. If you do not rename your cameras, the camera's serial number becomes the camera's name in the SmartThings app.

To name or rename your cameras:

  1. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at
  2. Tap or click Settings > My Devices.
  3. Tap or click the camera that you want to rename.
  4. Tap or click the pencil (edit) icon in the upper-right corner.
  5. Enter a new name for your camera.
    Note: Camera names are limited to 32 characters.
  6. Click or tap Save in the upper-right corner.

Disarm your cameras

When you integrate your Arlo cameras with SmartThings, a new SmartThings mode is created in the Arlo app. Because SmartThings manages your Arlo cameras, they must be in disarmed mode. You cannot use schedule mode or geofencing mode at the same time as SmartThings mode.

To disarm your cameras:

  1. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at
  2. Tap or click Mode.
  3. Select the device you want to disarm.
  4. Tap or click Disarmed.
  5. Tap or click Back.
  6. Exit the Arlo app.
