For some reason my HomeKit integration disappeared. I’ve been spinning my wheels rebooting, resetting everything and reinstalling everything with no luck. Sounds like I need a new token sent to my device. Can someone here help me?

Hi DvxAznxvb, MysticalMule,

 

I've sent a token reset request to your Base Station/SmartHub that should resolve the issue. Please reboot your Base Station/SmartHub (remove and reapply power), allow the Base Station/SmartHub to come back online and try setting up HomeKit again using these instructions: How do I connect my Arlo camera to Apple HomeKit

My BaseStation stoped working through Homekit a few moths ago.

Have not been able to reconnect since.

 

Model: VMB4000r3

Firmware; 1.16.5.7_3823_a530306

iPhone 12pro on iOS 14.5.1

 

Discovery is not detecting the BaseStation.

Any help would be appreciated. 
I see a lot of similar posts talking about Token Reset.

Not sure how to get one.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Trying to add this to my Apple Homekit setup but the IOS Arlo App hangs on Connecting to Bridge after I scan the QR code.   Restarting unit does not help.  Please advise.

 

Thanks,

Hello JessicaP,

I’ve tried all day to get my ultra cameras connected to HomeKit through my vmb5000. It seems I need a token reset; are you able to do this?

Can I get a token reset too? I had my base station connected and showing in HomeKit but now it's gone and won't recognize it anymore. I go in the App to the HomeKit > Home > Room > but then I can't add my cameras to the room, there's no "continue" or "Add" button on the screen? 😞

Base firmware 1.16.5.7, My cameras are registered in the App ok, and I can see them via app or online. But unable to add them or the base station to Apple Homekit.  The first 7 steps are fine, when I get to step 8, there is button or link or menu to click to "Continue to add devices to homekit"

 

To setup an Arlo camera without a setup code:

  1. Launch the Arlo app on your Apple device.
  2. Tap Settings > My Devices.
  3. Select an Arlo base station.
  4. Tap HomeKit.
  5. Select the base station you want to add to HomeKit.
  6. Select a Home or tap Add New Home.
    If you don’t have a Home set up in the Arlo app, you are directed to create a Home.
  7. Select a Room or tap Add a New Room.
    If you don’t have a Room set up in the Arlo app, you are directed to create a Room.
  8. Tap Continue to add devices to HomeKit to add cameras or additional base stations.

Does the base station need to get added to homekit to get the cameras to show up in the Home App? Or do the cameras need to get added to the Home app separately? There is no "HomeKit setup code on your base station"

 

If I go into my camera (fw 1.090.26.4) there is no method/menu/option to add them to a room?

But thank you for resetting the token.

I have two Arlo baby’s that are no longer working with HomeKit. I have removed them from HomeKit and I am stuck at discovery on both. Can a reset token be sent for both my devices? Thanks.
