I’m trying to control my Arlo Q using Google Assistant. Has anyone had any luck with this?  I can’t get it to work. 
Many thanks!!

I haven't tried my Q with anything yet but the rest of my cameras are connected via Google Home. At this point, all I can do is view cameras (live view). WHat have you tried and what do you expect?

Tom - I did read it. Apparently I need a Google Home Hub to connect the Arlo Q to Assistant. I thought I could connect the Q to me IPad directly since both are connected to the same WiFi, but that is apparently not the case like it is with other Arlo cameras. Is that your read on it too?

Thanks !!

That's how I read the article and that's how I have it set up (using a hub). It's streaming video so a mini or speaker wouldn't work. You don't stream to a phone, it's to a hub or a Chromecast.
