IFTTT support

A lot of new "smart" products have IFTTT support, it makes them smarter. The Homeboy (where I assume Netgear ripped the idea for this product) has solid IFTTT support, so you guys should add it to beat them. Thanks.

I can't believe this isn't part of Arlo already... Netgear what are you waiting for?

Fledgling

IFTTT would allow you to be the FRONT END to trigger many other smart home and office products -- (e.g. - if motion at front door turn on lights), and, without it actions cannot be used to trigger you (e.g. - if door opened, vault opened, Amazon Echo requested, control changed, etc. then record motion for 30 seconds).

 

To be a part of a truly "smart" enviornment, this is easily the quickest, and most supported, methods to place yourself in the absolute mainstream and infinately improve the usefullness of Alro.

 

Please consider this tie in.

Yes, I'm really wishing this was part of the system already. Not having the ability to auto turn on/off motion detection based on who is home means a lot more notifications than I would like.

I'd love for Netgear's Arlo team to act more like a startup and do things outside of the box. The camera/system is a great start. I was quite disappointed (or surprised) that IFTTT & geofencing isn't part of the software already. But let's keep pushing for it. These seem like obvious features (though I'm not sure how the tech stack is layed out on the serverside to scale this).
