Why does Arlo send instant alerts?

Arlo sends instant alerts so that you know when actions are occurring. Instant email alerts and push notifications are available when the camera detects motion and sound (Note: sound detection is not available on Arlo Wire-Free cameras).

 

Instant alerts make Arlo systems useful for home monitoring. Competing home monitoring solutions take up to 40 minutes to deliver push notifications to your mobile devices, making them less effective for home monitoring.
