Hi AM3,

 

Make sure that you have the following the Base Station in order to use Apple HomeKit:

  • VMB5000: 1.14.0.9_137_8e45094
  • VMB4540: 1.15.0.2_371_f7780e1
  • VMB4500: 1.14.0.2_2777
  • VMB4000: 1.14.0.2_2776

You can learn more here on how to use Apple HomeKit with Arlo cameras: What are the benefits of connecting my Arlo camera to Apple HomeKit?

Thank you Jessica! My base station is VMB5000. Could you please send me step to add Home Kit?

Sorry! It is VMB3500. Can I still use Apple Home Kit? If not, do you have a upgrade program to upgrade my base station?
At the box, it is written - Arlo Pro 2. Which is compatible with Apple Home Kit however look like that is not true in my case.

The Arlo Pro 2 camera is compatible with Apple HomeKit but you will need to have the listed Base Station/SmartHub that is listed above to have it paired with Apple HomeKit.
