Trying to add Arlo Pro cameras to Apple HomeKit .. just installed lastest Arlo firmware which indicates Arlo base must be VMB4000 .. is base station VMB4000r3 same as VMB4000? .. if not, then I will never be able to add Arlo Pro cameras to Apple HomeKit?
Arlo have already confirmed they will not be supporting homekit secure video, my guess is they dont want to loose subscription revenue to apple icloud - https://twitter.com/ArloSmartHome/status/1162472413562646528
What are you doing with Automations? I would think there would be a way to at least schedule arming and disarming the cameras but that is not allowed. Motion sensors on the cameras do not work (I've tested this over and over). To me it's just having the cameras show up in the Home App and I don't understand how that is at all helpful when there's already the Arlo app for that.
You can disarm or arm the system as the Arlo system is registered as homekit cameras and not an alarm system
I second this. Setup a BETA program for your power users and those who have software QA capabilities.
My home network is setup such that I can provide packet captures, remote access and other features for Arlo to leverage.
I'd be happy to participate free of charge. I just want to ensure that my investment is valued by Arlo and Netgear.
HomeKit is working for me.
iPhone - 12.4.1
iPad - 13.1 beta
iMac - Mojava
Macbook Pro - Catalina
Apple TV. - Latest release
What I did was delete my Home in Homekit. Then I started a new one adding everything back through the iPhone. I do have other Homekit devices which I also added. Since I have a mix of devices with beta operating systems, I think it took a couple of days before every device had everything back in.
7 different iPhones and three different base stations unfortunately it looks like for some reason the iPhone 7 and I guess the 7+ I didn’t have a 7+ to test still are having an issue even with my method post # 242
Apple HomeKit Error "No accessories responding" when not connected to home wifi.
Installed new Arlo mobile app
All firmwares up to date (base station and cameras)
Everything works when connected to wifi at home, but not when away.
New iOS update is coming September 19...
When will a fix be available or Arlo app update?
I really don't feel like deleting my Home, resetting HomeKit, is an effective solution. While it may be proven to work, it shouldn't be a requirement for a product advertised as HomeKit compatible. I have way too many other devices in HomeKit to reset the whole thing solely for Arlo. I'm more likely to sell the whole kit and do something else entirely.
Could not agree more about starting my homekit setup from scratch. Arlo has provided absolutely no updates or estimates on when their problem is going to be resolved. I have a doorbell camera, door locks, lights, switches, thermotasts and garaga doors. No way I am deleting all and startng from scratch again only for Arlo not to work.
