I have four 4 Arlo VMC2430 100NAR I purchased from Amazon 22 March 2022.  Unfortunately after setting up the cameras I threw the box away.  Now I cannot add the cameras to Apple Home Kit because I do not have the QR code on the packaging, and even when I hold my phone next to one of the Arlo cameras, Home Kit does not recognize it.  Any ideas?  Thank you!

I think you are misunderstanding the requirements for home kit.

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