    Arlo supports IFTTT. So I use the location trigger in IFTTT to detect when I leave my home area then use the Arlo IFTTT channel to arm the cameras. It works most of the time but I would like it to work with multiple phones. To do that I can use a virtual device in HS to be set when BOTH phones are home or away, then arm/disam. IFTTT cannot do that since it does not have conditions, but HS can. I just need HS to be able to arm/disarm directly. I guess I could use an HS trigger in IFTTT when that virtual device changes. I just think it would work better without IFTTT.

    Arlo has a geolocation feature, but I can't get that to work.

    Are you using IFFT plugin - via Dropbox? Yeah, I gave up on this, it's impossible...

    Would be great. As a minimum would be nice to use Arlo for motion detection, instead of using separate sensors. I find Arlo really reliable, shame there's no HS plugin.

Will post if I get something working. So far the cameras have been working very well. The key to battery life is to disarm when you don't need recording.

    Excellent, Thank you

    Which cameras from Arlo are you trying to connect? The original wireless cameras are really nice and convenient, but it looks like a really closed system, if you could figure out how to connect those that would be really awesome.

    On the other hand, they do have the new wired Arlo Q, that looks more promising to connect, but does need wires.

    Arlo tied to HS3

    I just bought a 2 cam kit with the intention of tying it into my HS3 Zee S2.
    I'll post my experiences once I get a chance to see what it can do.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't have an IFTTT channel yet (I think they are looking at creating one). I tied it to HS by configuring Arlo to send an email on motion to my gmail account then use IFTTT gmail trigger to turn on an HS virtual device. It all works, but it's not real time - there was a 5 minute lag between tripping the motion sensor on the Arlo and the HS device being updated.

    I have had a root about, and there's not much going on in the Arlo / IoT / API world but if anyone knows better.......

    Installed one Arlo camera this week - very good kit. Small but good quality. Will tie into IFTTT & see what I can do to include HS.

    started a topic Arlo

    Arlo

    Has anyone looked into Netgear's new Arlo offering? The wireless aspect is appealing, but it's a closed architecture right now. Just wondering if anyone had any strong thoughts about it.
Working...
