Hi all,

I have VMB4000 base station and Arlo Pro 2 cameras, all with latest firmware, latest iOS app, and latest iOS version.

I am trying to enable the setup HomeKit option. I have followed these instructions:


As I don't have the Homekit setup code on the base-station, I am trying to setup through the Arlo app.

I follow the instructions - "To setup an Arlo camera without a setup code"


I get stuck on point 4 - I click Homekit -> Setup, and then the pop-up window saying "Discovering your device" opens but it gets stuck with the searching icon, and no cameras ever get found. I have put my cameras right next to my phone to ensure detection.


Any advice?
