Here my current home automation setup:-  FireTV stick, Arlo Pro 2 camera and the new Orbi Voice. In my current setup, I could use the Fire TV remote to stream Arlo video to my TV. So I assume I setup the Arlo skill correctly. But when I try to use Orbi voice, show {camera name} on  {TV name}, the Orbi voice say 'it can't find the device name ....' Any idea what's wrong?

I have it setup on my TV with the Chromecast device, and using the "Google Home" system. It works well. You gotta give each camera a unique name.  I can tell it to "Show me backyard patio camera 4", and it will play.   

Is this what you mean?

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about Orbi or Alexa....sorry.

The camera and Fire TV had unique name. Just wondering what is the magic word to tell Orbi to stream the video.

I have used exactly the same setup . I changed the cameras name to front door and backyard on the arlo app . When i used the Alexa on the controller of the firetv i was able to stream the cameras . However when i used the Alexa on the orbi voice it says ' Sorry cameras don't work on this device'.

Mine is working now.. I changed the name of my TV to "Monitor" and camera to "Front Door"

 

I tried " Show front door camera on monitor", this doesn't work.

But when I try "Show front door camera on fire TV". it works.
