Mounting Options: You can place the wireless network cameras on a shelf or other flat
surface, or you can mount them to the supplied magnetic wall brackets. When positioning your
camera, keep these tips in mind:
- Position Mode: Use the Arlo app in Position mode to
help aim the camera. Position Mode sends video to the cloud as quickly
as possible. This allows you to aim the camera while watching the video feed
on your Arlo smartphone app to make near real-time adjustments to the
- Field Of View: The Arlo Pro cameras have a 130°
viewing angle. Position the cameras so that the space that you want to
monitor is within the cameras' field of view.
- Elevate Camera: Mount the Arlo Pro motion-detection cameras at least
7' above the floor and aim them slightly down for the best sensor
- Side-To-Side Traffic: For best results, the path of
expected motion should cross the cameras' field-of-view and not head
directly into or away from the camera. For example, if you want to detect
motion near a couch, place the camera to the side of the couch, rather than
above it or opposite it. You can use the Motion Detection Test feature to
verify if motion can be detected in a camera's current placement.
