HI I have 4 arlo cameras and I have recently discovered smartthings !!! I have been able to successfully integrate the cameras into smartthings. I have created a scene to record from each camera and then an automation to run the scene hourly, so that I can check the cameras are working with out having to manually check each one. So far so good.
My issue is with the Arlo library and I have posted in their forum as well but wanted to try here to incase its related to my Smartthings set up.
- the Arlo notification badge is not being triggered by the arrival of my automated ST scene/automation recording, so I have no idea whether its worked without going in and checking (defeats the point). When I used IFTTT for the same idea it was able to trigger the notification badge.
- when I automated with IFTTT, the arlo library listed the recording as “IFTTT” rather than motion, vehicle, animal etc its standard labels. I found this useful. Any way to make ST do the same when it labels its recording in the arlo library.
- finally the “scene” works when its combined with an automation but when I just run the scene or press the widget for the scene - no result - any clues on why?
thanks for the help, SAM
PS not using IFTTT anymore as it had to be one applet per camera - tried to set ST’s up the same way to resolve the above, no joy.
