I did factory reset to the base station and still it seems to be stuck on "Discovering your device, please wait"

 

Why it is so hard?

kinder,

 

I've sent a token reset request to your base station that should resolve the issue. Please reboot your base station (remove and reapply power) allow the base station to come back online and try setting up HomeKit again using these instructions: How do I connect my Arlo camera to Apple HomeKit?

Thank you so much @JamesC .

 

I did power cycle the hub by pulling out and back in the cable but when clicking the Homekit button on the Arlo hub it is still stuck on "Discovering your device. Please wait" any suggestions on how to fix it?

Hi @JamesC ,

 

I can confirm the team was able to fix the issue and I was able to add the bridge and cameras to HomeKit.

 

Thank you so much for your help!

I checked the status page and saw it was resolved there so tried it again and it just worked for me.

 

Maybe you need a token reset before trying.
