Hey Zolden,

 

You can capture recordings by arming your Arlo camera through the Arlo app. Could you clarify further on what you're trying to accomplish using HomeKit?

Hi Jessica

 

The carmera etc. Is armed by geofencing and scheduled, have been working for a 6 months almost perfect.

 

I want the camera motion sensor to turn on the outdoor light via Apple HomeKit, it works but when active there is no stored movie in Arlo library, if I deactivate the HomeKit automation then there is movie in Alo library
