So I have Smartthings nicely integrated with my ArloPro wire free cameras. It great when the alarm is triggered by one of the open close sensors the cameras all start recording. Great.
And also I know and have used the cameras as motions sensors but that triggers the alarm.
What I want to do, if possible, is when the alarm is set to “Armed Away”, I want the alarm only to TRIGGER when an open-closed sensor is tripped. But not when there is motion on camera. Fine, I have that.
However, I want the Arlo cameras(just the outside two cameras only) to MESSAGE me if there is motion but not trigger the full alarm with siren and all that.
I know I can independently set the cameras to notify me when motion is detected without setting off the alarm in the ALRO app, but is there a way to do that in the Smartthings app as well?
The reason I ask is because I really like how I have the smartthings app set up to when I leave my home(geofence) it goes into armed mode and when I return it disarms the alarm.
I can do that also but separately in the Arlo app(geofence) but their geofence sucks. You have to keep it always in geofence mode but I dont want geofend mode when I am home in my geofence because then it would constantly trigger me moving at home.
