I got a message saying that the Arlo Pro 3 Cameras are not supported with iCloud Storage yet via Home Kit. Is this true, and so what is the issue, and when will they be supported?

Arlo has chosen not to support HomeKit Secure Video, and has not given any indication that they plan to support it in the future.

 

What is supported is described here: https://kb.arlo.com/000062509/What-are-the-benefits-of-connecting-my-Arlo-camera-to-Apple-HomeKit

OK. I was able to add them to Homekit and they are supported to the degree that I can see what they’re streaming in the Home app, but no backups to iCloud.
