How do I turn my Arlo camera on or off?

You can switch your Arlo camera off whenever you need privacy. This feature is useful if you share camera access with others.

When you switch a camera off, the camera goes into a low power state that does not allow audio, recording, or live streaming. When you switch a camera on, the camera resumes the mode and settings it was set to.

To switch a camera on or off:

  1. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at
  2. Tap Settings > My Devices.
  3. Select your camera.
  4. Slide the Device On slider to turn on or off the camera.
