How do I get my Arlo camera to record motion?

Answered by Robert Flynn

To get your Arlo camera to record motion, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Arlo app on your smartphone or tablet and log in to your account.

2. In the app’s home screen, tap on the “Settings” tab located at the bottom right corner of the screen.

3. In the Settings menu, scroll down and find the “Mode” option. Tap on it to access the different modes available for your Arlo camera.

4. Select the mode that you want to edit by tapping on the pencil icon next to it. If you only have one mode configured, it will be preselected for you.

5. Once you are in the editing mode, you will see a list of rules that define the behavior of your Arlo camera. Tap on the pencil icon next to the rule that you want to modify.

6. In the rule settings, you will see a checkbox labeled “Motion is detected.” If this checkbox is selected, it means that motion detection is enabled for this rule. If it is not selected, motion detection is disabled.

7. To enable motion detection, simply tap on the checkbox to select it. You should see a checkmark appear in the box.

8. If you want to disable motion detection, tap on the checkbox to clear it. The checkmark will disappear.

9. After you have made your desired changes, tap on the “Save” button to apply the modifications to the rule.

10. Repeat these steps for any other rules that you want to modify.

It’s worth noting that enabling motion detection will allow your Arlo camera to start recording whenever it detects any movement within its field of view. The recordings will be saved in your Arlo library for you to review later.

In my personal experience, I found the Arlo app to be intuitive and user-friendly. Editing the motion detection settings was straightforward, and I was able to enable or disable it with just a few taps. The ability to customize the behavior of my Arlo camera through different modes and rules was a great feature, as it allowed me to tailor its recording capabilities to my specific needs.

Getting your Arlo camera to record motion is a simple process that can be easily done through the Arlo app. Just follow the steps outlined above, and you’ll be able to enable or disable motion detection according to your preferences.
