Where should I mount my Arlo camera to detect alarms?

Place your Arlo camera 2 feet or less from your smoke or CO alarm to test if it is compatible with alarm detection. To test Alarm Detection, visit How do I test my Arlo device with my smoke and carbon monoxide detectors?.

If you would like to test whether you can place your Arlo device more than 2 feet from your compatible smoke or CO alarm, visit How do I test my Arlo device with my smoke and carbon monoxide detectors?.

When you determine where to place your Arlo device, we recommend that you aim the camera toward the area of highest interest so that you can investigate further if you get a smoke or CO alarm notification.
