doesn't the wink egg minder already push notifications for set # of remaining eggs?

Arlo will not get a channel on IFTTT at this time. We will submit this inquiry to our development team for consideration.
Thank you for your interest in Arlo!

Don't get me wrong, they are a quality product, the apps, devices are top notch. Just didn't want to have to hit record every time the house needs monitoring. Hope to hear an update before the return period. Can't justify the cost for a simple set of webcams.
Thank you for your answer.
A couple things to consider:
- The Homeboy, which is likely your main competitor currently for this product, has great IFTTT support. (Unfortunately it's not weatherproof though)
- It seems like only thing making the Arlo "smart" is the motion detection recording, IFTTT support would make the system a lot smarter
@TJgeneva Thank you for your valuable feedback on how to improve Arlo. In terms of switching the modes back and forth, it sounds like you may want to utilize the Schedule feature. If you are under Mode, click or tap on the slider for the Schedule to enable this feature (slider will appear green). Here, you can adjust the times you would like motion detection to be on/off. Move the black separator bars to adjust the timing, or drag and drop your different Mode buttons to the calendar to add Modes to the schedule. Also see What are “Modes” & How Do I Use Them?
In regards to IFTTT integration, I would recommend that you place this great suggestion into the Ideas board. The product and development teams will be reviewing the ideas with the most kudos for consideration in future functionality.
Thank you all for your interest in Arlo!

Agreed on the point of schedule setting, it just much easier for one to link an action related to one locking a door (Schlagg), a door sensor (any security system), or GPS location (like my phone leaving a given area) to drive the mode set on the camera system....This is much much much more fullproof/useful than relying on a set schedule or needing to do things manually.
It was a mandatory feature request back in Feb when I first purchased this camera. Someone here recommended the Homeboy camera. Also true wireless (no cords) and just as easy installation, but you charge the camera instead of replacing batteries, no hub, uses GPS geocaching to automatically arm and disarm when everyone has left the home and has IFTTT intregration. No I don't work for Homeboy. 🙂 just pleased with the product. It has features I hoped Arlo would have included. One feature homeboy does not have... it is not weatherproof. so it can not be outside. Also, currently Homeboy doesn't have monthy fees. Great app & great Arlo alternative.
Please IFTTT integration is a must have feature..... without it I have to activate manually the modes everytime that I leave/arrive home, go to sleep, travel, etc... with IFTTT I will integrate Arlo with my Alarm system (Scout) and increase security and smart features. I am sure that you can do this integration in a month.
Kindly post your feature request here Arlo Idea Exchange and give it a kudos. The more it gets kudos from other users, the more it will get attention and it be considered in the product's future functionality.
I would be awesome if ifttt would work.
You could switch on philips hue lights for example when motion is captured by the camera!
I am really looking forward for that function!!
I just got an Arlo Camera and like all of you i'm looking forward to integrate the camera using IFTTT, specially since i have the ScoutAlarm system. SInce there is no support at this time i created a couple IFTTT Recipes that activates the Scout SIren whenever the motion sensor is triggered on the Arlo camera.
Basically what i did was create a recipe using the gmail channel that sends an emailst to firstname.lastname@example.org whenever i receive an email alert from email@example.com which is sent whenever the camera detects any motion. I then created a second recipe using the scout channel in which the siren is set off whenever firstname.lastname@example.org receives an email from my email account.
I'm sure this procedure can be applied to other alarm systems or smart home tech you guys might have. I'm playing around with it to see if I'm able to implement it in other ways. Hope this helps.
Netgear apparently lied in the press release about Arlo Q, because their Director of Product Management promised IFTTT would be available last month:
If people shelled out hundreds on Arlo based on this press release, there could probably be some lawsuits coming Netgear's way, right?
Sounds a bit diff when read.... "starting" not really the same as promise. Besides, production problems always slow things down at times. The Q cam was coming out in Dec, but really just released now. ....not to mention it's thru a third party so it's hearsay. Don't think there's any lawsuits
"Skripic also said Netgear will also offer IFTTT integration starting in December."

It would be nice to be able to triger Arlo by SMS. My security system send me SMS that it is armed or disarmed. If that could trigr arm or disarm Arlo that would be great! Can this be done?
