Pro 4 Spotlight CameraPosition your camera to detect motion inspecific areasYou can mount and aim your Pro 4 Spotlight Camera in different ways to optimize thecamera’s ability to detect motion in specific areas. The lower two-thirds of the camera’s fieldof view is the motion-sensitive part of the image. Aim the camera so that any motion you wishto detect appears within this part of the image.If you want to monitor motion closer to thecamera, such as visitors to your front door,mount the camera at least 6.5 feet (1.9meters) high* and aim it so that visitorsappear in the lower two-thirds of the image.This angle works well to avoid motion alerts formovement in the top third of the image, such asvehicles driving by.To monitor motion occurring farther away,such as children playing on a lawn, aim thecamera higher to frame the area within thelower two-thirds of the image.It’s best to position the camera so that motionis moving from side-to-side across its fieldof view rather than directly toward or awayfrom the camera. Also, though the camera candetect motion up to 25 feet (7.6 meters) away,the best area for motion detection is 5 to 20feet (1.5 to 6 meters) from the camera position.Use camera positioning to aim your cameraCamera positioning is available only when the camera is not streaming, recording motion, orusing the Motion Detection test. During camera positioning, the camera streams video as fastas possible, without buffering. You can aim your camera while watching on your smartphoneand making near real-time adjustments to the camera position. This means that you mightsee lower-quality video while you are positioning your camera.*At 6.5 feet (2 meters) or higher, we recommend using the Arlo Outdoor Mount.Get Started16User Manual

We recommend that you place your floodlgiht within300 feet (90 meters) of your WiFi router. The maximum line-of-sight range of 300 feet isreduced by each wall, ceiling, or other major obstruction between the camera and therouter.19

Pro 4 Spotlight Camera Minimum recommended distance. To reduce WiFi interference, allow at least 6½ feet (2meters) between your camera and any Arlo cameras that you install.These materials can reduce WiFi signal strength if they are located between WiFi devices: Unusually thick walls and ceilings Brick Concrete Stone Ceramic Glass, especially mirrors Metal Large quantities of water, such as the water in a fish tank or water heaterConnect your mobile device to a 2.4 GHz WiFinetwork during setupIf you’re connecting your camera directly to your router’s WiFi network, it’s important tounderstand that your mobile device must connect to the same WiFi network as the cameraduring setup.Your camera can only connect to a 2.4 GHz WiFi network. Many routers broadcast WiFinetworks in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, so your phone might connect to the 5 GHz WiFiband. During setup, connect your phone to your 2.4 GHz WiFi network, then connect yourcamera to that same 2.4 GHz WiFi network.Find your 2.4 GHz WiFi network name and passwordYour phone might connect to your 5 GHz WiFi network most of the time. If you’re not sureabout how to find the 2.4 GHz WiFi network: Look on your WiFi router label.Many routers have a label that shows the WiFi network name, which is also called an SSID.Your 2.4 GHz network name might have a 2, 2.4, or 2G at the end. Your 5 GHz networkname might have a 5 or 5G at the end. If you changed your WiFi settings, then check theplace where you saved your custom settings. If your WiFi network name or SSID doesn’t indicate whether it’s 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz, ask yourinternet service provider (ISP) or the person who set up your WiFi router. If you have a mesh WiFi network, it uses only one WiFi network name for both WiFi bands.The camera finds and connects to the 2.4 GHz WiFi band. As long as you connect yourphone to the same mesh network, Arlo can discover the camera.WiFi Setup and Connections20User Manual
