How do I enable or disable local storage of Arlo Go video recordings on an SD card?

All Arlo video recordings are stored to the cloud, but you can connect a Micro SD card to your Arlo Go camera and use the Micro SD card to store Arlo Go recordings locally if your Arlo Go camera loses connection to the cloud. Local storage to a Micro SD card cannot be used on its own as a substitute for cloud recording.

If you need to set up local storage on your Arlo Go camera for the first time, see How do I set up local backup SD card storage on my Arlo Go camera?.

 

To enable or disable local storage backups on an inserted SD card:

  1. If you want to enable a Micro SD card, make sure that the Micro SD card you want to enable is already inserted. 
    If the Micro SD card is not already inserted, follow the setup procedure in this article: How do I set up local backup SD card storage on my Arlo Go camera?.
  2. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at my.arlo.com.
  3. Select Settings > My Devices and tap or click on the Arlo Go camera for which you want to enable or disable Micro SD card recording.
  4. Select Local Storage
    If the message next to the Micro SD card is Requires Formatting, follow the formatting procedure in this article: How do I set up local backup SD card storage on my Arlo Go camera?.
  5. Tap or click on the slider next to SD Card Recording.
    If the slider is all the way to the right against a green background, Micro SD card recording is enabled.
    If the slider is all the way to the left against a white background, Micro SD card recording is disabled.
