How do I enable or disable motion or sound detection?

To enable or disable motion or sound detection, you must edit your camera’s current mode or enable a different mode. Follow these steps to edit an existing mode.

To enable or disable motion or sound detection on Arlo cameras:

  1. Launch the Arlo app or log in to your Arlo account at my.arlo.com.
  2. Tap or click Mode.
  3. Tap or click the Arlo device whose mode you want to edit.
    If you want to edit the mode for an Arlo Wire-Free or Arlo Pro Wire-Free camera, select the Arlo or Arlo Pro base station that is connected to that camera.
  4. Tap or click the pencil icon next to the mode that you want to edit. 
  5. In the Rules section, tap or click the pencil icon next to the rule that you want to edit.
    If the mode that you are editing only has one rule, the rule is preselected for you in the Arlo app.
  6. Select or clear the check box next to Motion is detected to enable or disable motion detection.
    Note: Motion detection cannot be disabled on Arlo Wire-Free cameras in Armed mode.
  7. To enable or disable sound detection, select or clear the check box next to Audio is detected.
  8. Tap or click Save > Done.
