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.

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.

ScottRennie - Thank you for the feedback. Does Arlo support IFTTT? I remember checking into this several months back and at that time I thought it was not yet supported. Very interested to hear about your experience!

Thanks again!

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.......

Scott
