After upgrading to iOS 15, cameras in HomeKit should now support Activity Zones and Recordings in the Apple Home app when you have an iCloud+ subscription. 

 

For some reason these options do not appear with my Arlo Ultra cameras. i've tried to remove the homekit integration from the Arlo app and re-added the cameras, but that didn't change anything. 

 

Anyone else have this issue?

Hi JSAUS83,

 

Those features are available on HomeKit Secure Video, which we do not support HomeKit Secure Video at this time.

Hi! Does anyone know why no videos are recorded and no Arlo activity notifications appear in HomeKit?

Maybe I miss, but Apple calling out support here no?

Hi,

When will this be supported? We paid a lot of money for the hardware and we can only use bits of it unless the excessively priced and completely unnecessary subscription from Arlo is bought.

Same as there are no thumbnails on videos when you record locally.

It sounds like a cheap money grab to me.
