Why is the Arlo chime sold separately?

The Arlo Chime is sold separately for the following reasons:

  • You might already have a digital or mechanical chime that you can pair with your Arlo Audio Doorbell. For more information, visit How do I set up my Arlo Audio doorbell to trigger my existing chime?.
  • You might need more than one Arlo Chime depending on the size of your house. An Arlo Chime covers an area up to 300 square feet.
  • You can sync your Arlo Chime with your Arlo cameras or Arlo lights. When you pair your Arlo Chime with your other Arlo devices, you can set up cross-triggering so that your Arlo Chime plays a melody when your lights or cameras detect motion.
