I was able to get a hold of the Arlo CEO. I was really surprised he messaged back to my DM. It seemed as if he was not aware of any of these issues. I did mention to him the issues I was experiencing and that all of you have been experiencing with your Arlo ultras. He said he would get his engineers to call me to look into the issues and see what’s going on asap. I just hope it’s not regular support and it actually is higher engineering team. He did mention to me that there should be a feature hopefully being rolled out in the next 12 months where Arlo devices may not need a base station. If you guys want I can send over the full conversation. We went over a lot of stuff.
HomeKit Secure Video is not in process and Apple doesn't even support non-Linux based device SDK. Plus lots of issues on security and performance. So no plans there as right now there is no technical path to do it. We will always continue to look at it though... Some of our latest products are starting to support WIFI routers (we call it D2AP)... doorbell, floodlight etc but requires different WIFI. But that support will continue to roll out with launches over next 12 months
The good news is that Arlo does want to possibly have it in the future and Apple needs to change up some stuff on their end.
Hope this helps y’all!
