Siri Shortcuts support for deep Arlo actions

now that ios 12 is beta, and the siri shortcuts app is also being tested by select devs, it would be a great time to start making a number of actions accessible from this new platform. Siri shortcuts will be able to preform powerful deep automated actions in apps who allow it with a simle predetermined command. Lets get on this!


hey siri (dis)arm arlo.

hey siri snooze arlo for.. 15, 30, 60 mins..

hey siri sound the alarm!

hey siri how are my arlo batteries?

hey siri im home.. opens garage, turn on select lights & thermostat and disarms arlo. 


any other great ideas?





hope this gets exposure. its a needed feature!


my fingers are crossed but not hopeful

We greatly appreciate the community’s contribution and will keep the status of this idea updated as we get new information on its potential implementation. Thank you for posting your idea!


Yes this would be fantastic.


Would also like to be able to switch between  customs modes. 


I too would like to see Siri Shortcuts integrations. I work from home occassionaly and will turn the cameras to disarmed when doing so, but sometimes forget to turn them back on. A snooze shortcut or other automated actions would help with forgetting to turn them back on.


Any update on this? I cannot believe this simple addition has not been implemented yet. This would make iOS/HomeKit integration so much better, particularly with iOS 13 adding Home Automation into Siri Shortcuts. 


Since Arlo is completely incapable of implementing features into their apps, such as  the simple addition of Siri Shortcuts, I found a great way to add Arlo actions to Siri Shortcuts using IFFFT.


It takes a little bit of setup, but once working you can add Arlo Arm/Disarm actions to any shortcut or Home Automation. Hopefully others find this useful.

Long awaited feature. 🤞🤞🤞


Any update here??  I really just want to be able to mute notifications without opening the app every time I let the dog out.
