I just converted my free IFTTT account to the new Pro subscription that allows you to create multiple actions ("that's").  I was hoping that would allow me to record from multiple cameras from a single trigger. (In my case, when my home alarm is triggered).  Currently I have to create a separate applet for each camera.  However, once I create a 2nd action and choose Arlo, "Start recording" is no longer an option.  Is this a limitation on the IFTTT or Arlo side?

IFTTT says: "Currently, it's not possible to use the same action multiple times in a single Applet. We have plans to address this in the future, so stay tuned."

 

I confirmed that with other services besides Arlo.  Very disappointing.  That seems like a very common use case that they should have addressed from the get go.
