Apple HomeKit

To integrate arlo into the Apple Home Kit would be a great improvement.

 

Now I have a great camera system with an app, a weather station with an app and some other sensors in the Apple home kit and they do not work together. 

 

E.g. an alarm could be triggered by the motion sensor of the camera or the camera could be switched on by a door or windows sensor even if the motion sensor is not activated because the object is too far away and so on. There are a lot of possibilities with connecting the systems. 

 

Is this planned to do?

Any idea if homekit will be supported in iOS 10? WOuld be so awesome to have my cameras integrate with all of my other homekit products. Also please dont pull a phillips hue and make people have to buy all new hardware if possible! Hopefully can be done through software!

Agree with Apple home kit has to be a must for me to purchase.  Otherwise, going elsewhere, why should I spend my hard earned money on a system that doesn't integrate with my apple products?  a bridge would be fine too.

 

Another thing, where is Arlo? no replies?

boubou,

 

The Arlo development team routinely reviews posts in the Arlo Idea Exchange to assess which features the community would like to see implemented. While I do not have any information on this particular topic at this time, we greatly appreciate the communities contribution and will keep the status of this idea updated as we get new information on it's potential implementation.

 

I encourage you to continue offering valuable feedback and continue to support good ideas by giving Kudos.

 

Thank you,

Thanks for the reply Smiley Happy

It's not a reply it's a fake carbon copy statement that means nothing because they use the exact same statement every time we go off or we question or we want answers when it comes to the fact that they gouged us, some of us for over $500 and then decide to never do anything to make the product meet the standards of other products on the market.
