Apple HomeKit Support?

@JamesC

Just wondering when the firmware update will be pushed to enable Apple HomeKit Support? Some reports from CES stated Arlo will push the HomeKit firmware update by the end of January. Is this true? If so, is Arlo on track to do this without delay?

Thanks,

D

I am also waiting for HomeKit before pulling the trigger on my purchase.  Any update on the firmware push for this?

Same here, after all the failed promises from Ring and others I'm also waiting for them to deploy the firmware before committing. 

I do have high hopes though as the Arlo Baby is pretty much stable (and with faster stream access) on HomeKit.

We barely use the Arlo app unless we want to look at previous recordings.

 

I wouldn't hold out for Q1 release though as it appears that they still have the basics to sort out and from what I see (with @JamesC being crazy active recently Smiley Happy) they're working quickly to deliver on the initial offering.
