While using SmartThings, how do I keep my camera from recording clips too often or missing motion?

When you integrate Arlo into the SmartThings app, the motion sensitivity for each camera is set to a default of 80. If your camera works more effectively at a different setting, you can use the Arlo app to change it.

 

To adjust a camera's motion sensitivity level:

  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 camera whose sensitivity level you want to adjust.
  4. If you know what motion sensitivity level you were using, skip to step 9.
    If you are not sure what motion sensitivity level you were using, tap the pencil icon or click > next to Armed
  5. Tap the pencil icon or click Edit next to the rule that you want to edit.
  6. Under If the following, tap the pencil icon or click Edit next to Motion is detected.
  7. Note the motion sensitivity setting, but do not select Armed mode.
  8. Return to the Mode page.
  9. Tap the pencil icon or click > next to SmartThings mode.
  10. Tap the pencil icon or click Edit next to the rule that you want to edit.
  11. Under If the following, tap the pencil icon or click Edit next to Motion is detected.
  12. Set the motion sensitivity level to match the setting that you viewed in step 7.
  13. Tap < Edit Rule or click Back.
  14. Tap Done or click Save.
