How do I mount my Arlo camera using the magnetic wall mount?

The magnetic mount is concave and fits perfectly with the shape of the rear of your camera. This allows a more precise fit between the mount and camera, and it enables dynamic ways to mount an Arlo Ultra and Arlo Pro series camera, including: walls, tabletops, and underneath ceilings. The strong magnetic force between these cameras and the mount provides peace of mind that the camera will stay in position.

To mount your Arlo camera:

  1. Fasten the mounting screw into a wall or ceiling.
    Note: Do not attach the magnetic wall mount to a drop ceiling.
  2. Use the plastic stopper to help guide how far to screw into the wall or ceiling.
  3. If you plan to connect an Arlo Ultra or Pro series camera to a charging cable, wrap the excess charging cable around the back side of the mount.

  4. Snap the magnetic mount around the screw and stopper.
    The mount clicks into place when it is placed properly on the screw.
  5. Attach your camera to the indoor wall mount.
  6. Adjust the camera to your preferred viewing angle.

You can replace the batteries on an Arlo Ultra and Pro series camera without removing your camera housing from the indoor wall mount.

Warning: When inserting the camera into the camera housing, do not push down on the lens or soft area below the lens.

To replace the batteries on an Arlo Ultra or Pro series without removing the camera from the wall mount:

  1. Press the button on the charging port underneath the camera.
    A clicking sound occurs, and the camera slides partially out of the camera housing.
  2. Pull the camera until it is entirely removed from the camera housing.
  3. Remove the battery by pulling on it until it slides out of the camera.
  4. Align the new battery and insert it into the battery compartment.
    Note: The battery only inserts one way.
    The camera LED blinks blue.
  5. Insert the camera back into the camera housing until it clicks into place.
    Do this by pushing down on both the left and right sides of the camera.
