Do you possess an Arlo Pro camera? If yes, then the wireless capabilities are already treated well. However, there are some hidden potentials that you might not have explored so far.
There is a central hub available with the Arlo Pro System that lets you connect it to the router. All the cameras connected wirelessly can be configured without any wire since there is inbuilt battery power. The features that may not be aware of include.
Mount and position the camera easily without any problem
It is quite a tedious task to mount the camera in the right or perfect direction without checking the live view. This problem is not applicable in the case of the Arlo Sign In camera. You can easily mount the camera and adjust it through the position mode.
Over to ‘Settings’ and click on ‘My devices’. Click on ‘position mode’. The live recording will start displaying. You can adjust the camera according to your preference or requirement.
Share access with other members of the family
You are apparently not the only one in the family to access the camera. The other members in the family have the option to get the updates and see the live view of the Arlo camera.
For this, go to ‘Settings’ from the Arlo app and click on ‘Grant access’. From here, you can send the invitation link to the family members to their app. Once they accepted, they can start accessing the live videos.
Enhance the battery life
The battery installed in the Arlo Camera can stay charged for as long as 4 weeks if plugged for 24 hours. However, you can increase the battery life of your Arlo camera by decreasing the quality of video recorded and keeping the camera at a normal temperature. Keep the connection strong on your Netgear Arlo Pro camera.
Get the recordings on your phone
If there is any particular video that you want to save for the future, then Arlo lets you get it into your phone directly since the videos available on the cloud drive are not permanent.
Go to the ‘Arlo’ app and click on the ‘library’ from the bottom. Select the recording you want to save and click ‘Download’. The video will automatically get saved to the phone.
Save the recordings as a backup
If you want to save all the recordings in the local hard or flash drive, then this is possible in the Arlo Camera. You can back up the data saved in the cloud.
To start taking the backup, you need to format the drive first. After this, go to ‘Settings’ and click on ‘My devices’. Select ‘Base Station’ followed by ‘Local storage’ and click on ‘USB device recording’.
