How do I recalibrate Arlo Baby’s temperature, humidity, and air quality sensors?

If you move your Arlo Baby to a new location, you might notice that you receive more alerts than usual due to different temperature, humidity, and air quality in the camera’s new location.

If you recently moved your Arlo Baby to a new location and you are receiving too many alerts, you can power cycle your Arlo Baby to recalibrate the sensors so that they adjust to the new location and you receive fewer alerts.

To recalibrate your Arlo Baby’s sensors:

  1. Unplug the USB cable from your Arlo Baby camera. 
  2. Rotate the foot plate and remove the Arlo Baby character’s feet.
  3. Slide the battery switch on the bottom of Arlo Baby to off. 
    The battery is turned off when no green is visible near the battery switch.
  4. Wait ten seconds, then slide the battery switch to on.
    Your Arlo Baby camera restarts.
  5. Replace the foot plate and rotate until it clicks into place.
  6. Plug the USB cable back in.
    Your Arlo Baby’s sensors recalibrate over the next 24 hours.
  7. If you are still receiving too many alerts, change your notification settings and alert thresholds from the Devices tab of the Arlo app.
