New to Smartthings…
After linking my hub the first thing I did was link my Arlo pro cameras to my Smartthings. While the integration was relatively easy I quickly came across (what I consider) a major issue.
After the integration Smartthings sets the cameras to ‘Active’ which means that the motion sensors are always active and I get a notification whenever a cameras sees motion. I worked out I could use a Routine (Home) to turn off the cameras to stop this and then another routine (Away) to turn them on when I (everyone) leaves.
The problem I have with this is when I am home I sometimes still want to look at the cameras but with them turned off by the ‘Home’ routine I can not view live video in either the Smartthings or the Arlo app. Basically the cameras are completely turned off.
All I want to happen is when Smartthings registers that both my phone and my partners phone is ‘Away’ that my Arlo cameras are set to Arm mode. Is this possible? When one of us (or both) are home that Arlo is in Dis-armed mode but we can still view live video.
