By default, the Netgear Arlo Pro camera system comes with several different modes that you can switch between depending on whether you are at home or not. However, you can customize settings for different modes. Here’s how to create your own modes in the Arlo app.

There are four default modes available: arming, disarming, scheduling, and geofencing. Unfortunately, none of these modes allow the camera to record motion without a constant warning. You can edit the default modes for this, but you may want to be able to easily switch between receiving alerts and receiving them. This is where you need to create your own mode.

To get started, open the Arlo app and click on the Mode tab at the bottom.

Select the Arlo Base Station under My Devices.

From here, you can click the pencil to edit an existing mode, or click Add Mode to create a new one. We are going to create a new one for this tutorial.

Enter a name for your new mode and then click «Next» in the upper right corner of the screen.

Then select the cameras you want to include in this new mode and click Next.

On the next screen, choose how you would like your camera(s) to activate by selecting «When motion is detected» or «When sound is detected». You can also choose both.

Then adjust the motion sensitivity using the slider and click Next when you’re done.

Click «Next» again.

On the next screen, choose what you want the cameras to do, as well as whether you want the siren to sound. Click next.

Then choose how long you want the cameras to record: either record until the motion stops or record for a fixed amount of time. Click next.

Choose how you want to be notified, via push notifications or email (or both). You can also choose not to receive alerts at all by deselecting each option.

The final screen will display an overview of the mode settings. Click Save if everything looks good.

Your new custom mode will appear at the bottom of the list. Select it to enable.

From there, you can switch between modes at any time, depending on whether you want to record cameras or not.
