And the Arlo Pro 4 thats also can connect direct to WiFi, will it also needs a Hub if i want to use it with HomeKit?? 😕


Unfortunately, yes.

 

See the note in this article:

Note: To use Apple Home, your Arlo device must be connected to an Arlo SmartHub or Arlo Base Station. You can’t use Apple Home with your Arlo device if the device is connected directly to a Wi-Fi router.
