Simplisafe pseudo integration

Hello,

 

Here is what I would like to do.  

 

Equipment:

Arlo Camera

Chamberlain MyQ Smartphone Controller for a Garage Door

 

Scenario:

 

When the garage door opens, the Arlo camera in the garage turns on for 90 seconds and records who comes in.

 

Initial thought would be to use a text from the MyQ to trigger the Arlo camera to come on using IFTTT.  I can create the trigger but no way to turn the camera on due to the lack of integration with IFTTT.


Anyone have any thoughts?  I have tried to follow some of the strings on using Python for Sonos control, so I am assuming that it could be done for Arlo, but I just exceeded my programming knowledge on this one sentence.

 

thanks
