Rick, glad to see you have an Arlo system. Hopefully this means we'll have an integration soon 😀 Currently I treat it as a completely independent system Like you mentioned the key to battery life is to disarm when not needed. For this the Arlo geolocation works quite reliably on my iPhone and I've only had to charge the batteries twice in 8 months.

Would be great to have some type of integration between HS and Arlo. Something to change the Arlo mode, control a HS device when motion is detected and even trigger recording or take a picture would be awesome. Probably not possible but a local integration would be amazing.

Now there's a good idea, I wonder why nobody has suggested it before

I'd just like to add that I've been looking into the new Arlo Pro 2, and should Rich get a plugin working, I would be very interested in purchasing it!

I'm curious how well the Arlo Solar Panel would work since the "record 3-seconds prior" feature seems to only work when the Arlo is plugged into an outlet. Perhaps the solar panel would suffice to be able to take advantage of that feature.

@mstukel - ok I have just completed authentication and now am working on the actual arm/disarm part. My Arlo cams are the only part that isn't able to be controlled by homeseer directly at the moment. It will be good to finish the script.

Keep in mind that this could be done today via IFTTT

I guess everybody knows that, but IFTTT is unreliable and slow.

Totally agree!

Anyone made any progress on an Arlo plug-in. I would love it.

There doesn't seem to be an official API from Netgear Arlo. See this user forums thread:
https://community.netgear.com/t5/Arl...ers/idi-p/1690

There are a few unofficial APIs on GitHub, with various levels of functionality:

I have been waiting patiently for Netgear to publish an API for over a year now. It doesn't look like it will ever happen. I decided to create a plug-in anyway that will allow arm/disarm and everything else I am able to reverse engineer.

Ultrajones

Jeffrey Walter's Python scripts on Github work and appear to have reverse engineered just about everything which Arlo can do. The scripts work.

I tried to turn them into a plugin but got lost in Server Side Events. If you get a PI working, sign me up as a customer and I'l love to learn how you cracked SSE in .NET.

I have reversed engineer basic Arlo functionality. The only potential issue I see is if you're using the iOS app and HomeSeer comes along and logs into Arlo, you'll get logged out of the iOS app. At this point, I envision the HomeSeer plug-in being able to set the arming modes based on either a change in the Home's security alarm state or occupancy (determined by another plug-in).

Regards,
Ultrajones
