Trying to set up a few Arlo and IFTTT integrations for the first time, however when I try to connect my account I get a big red banner along the top "Could not connect service." Anybody else having a similar issue or know a fix?
Thanks in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes same problem.
All my Arlo IFTTT applets stopped working in the last day or so "Applet failed"
And same message as you when trying to re-connect them.
Am guessing it is a issue for all uses of IFTTT and Arlo
Same here. I have multiple IFTTT applets connected to the Arlo service and all of them stopped working a few hours ago. Says "There was a problem with the Arlo service". I tried to remove Arlo within IFTTT and add again, but none of the devices are shown after I reconnect.
Same here, IFTTT broken!!!
What cheeses me off is Arlo/Netgear don't send out a courtesy email telling users IFTTT isn't working.
I use IFTTT triggers to actually arm and disarm my Arlos, sunset arms the cameras and timed to disarm in the morning and then rearm when I leave the house. I also have IFTTT triggers in place to send me a text on motion, turn on exterior and interior lights..........All broken and I was blissfully unaware until this morning when I took some rubbish out and set the Arlo off as it hadn't disarmed and it didn't turn on lights etc.
At least send a service status down email to users!!!!!!!
I wish I'd seen this before I disconnected arlo from IFTTT.
So now I'll have to setup all my recipes again - if it ever comes back online.
Hey Arlo / Netgear - how about an update?
Since the given date IFTTT is not able to communicate with Arlo service anymore. Both directions not working.
IFTTT activity log reports unspecific problems with the Arlo service.
For months no severe problems before.
Please fix asap.
Same issue occurred in 2017 and finally could be resolved with an Arlo bugfix:
I’m a wheelchair user and there have been several attempts at break ins during the night over the last 5 years. When Arlo works properly it’s great and gives piece of mind. I’ve set up each of the 5 cameras so false alerts are very rare. I use ifttt to trigger a light and a buzzer that will wake me at night as the alert doesn’t.
These are not cheap. For the cost they should be more reliable by now. If anything it seems to be getting less stable over time not more. I think the the suggestion that we should be told of an issue effecting service before we find out for ourselves is brilliant. At least we would be more alert ourselves until it’s resolved.
Come on arlo
I spoke with Aileen Cambarijan on Arlo Technical Support who confirmed that they are aware of the issue, but that the engineering team has not yet provided any indication of when it will be fixed. I also asked that they provide some acknowledgement and updates to the community.
