Can Arlo camera detect motion and adjust the sensitivity?

Last Update Date : Apr 02. 2019

Note: This article is for reference only. For latest updates on the product, kindly refer to Arlo website for more information.

The Arlo camera can detect motion up to 20 feet and can be utilized in Samsung Connect Home like any other motion sensor. Currently, there is no option to adjust the motion sensor sensitivity of Samsung SmartThings, but a user can adjust the sensitivity from the native Arlo App, which impacts the sensitivity in Connect.


The Arlo camera can have a hard time seeing motion coming directly towards it (or away from it). For better motion detection, mount the cameras off to the side so that it can detect perpendicular motion.
