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.

It’s great to see Arlo finally supports IFTTT and SmartThings. Unfortunately the functions provided are so limited it makes them just about useless. I should be able to use IFTTT or SmartThings to switch between any of the modes listed within Arlo. Not just Armed or Disarmed. If I come home, I want my inside cameras off but I still want the outside cameras in enabled. I can't do this with IFTTT or SmartThings. It’s either all cameras on basestation On or off, nothing in between. I should be able to switch to the Armed, DisArmed, Schedule, Outside Only with no Notifications, ect. See the screenshot of the different modes via IFTTT or smartthings. Using geofences in Arlo to do the switching is horrid unless you open the app every 15 mins. Even with “remember me” checked it, the mobile application seems to log out or go to sleep so the geofences never checks your location. I made sure Android Doze does not optimize the application and still doesn’t prevent the application from deep sleeping. I'm basically stuck with manually turning things on and off or using the schedule which only works if you have a ridge schedule.
