Help me buy a homey to create this and other apps on.

Notes

Please note that this app now only supports Homey v4.0 +

Its Highly recommended that you create a new Arlo user, and add the device to Homey using the new user. To ensure that you are not kicked from the Mobile app by Homey and required to re-log in.

Using

  1. After installing, to add a new Device, click + (add) upon the devices tab select “Arlo Device”.
  2. Likely a the screen will open asking for you to log into your arlo account.
  3. The loading screen may stay for up to a minute, but once completed your arlo devices will be shown.
  4. Click on which devices you would like to add to Homey.

Possible Uses

TBA

Otherwise everything else is as advertised in the post, hit me up on Slack (@jamie) if you have any questions or issues. Items show in this post (and only this post) are confirmed to work.

Hi @alex_Tom welcome to the community

I would love to add you both as alpha testers, I am currently testing the VMC4030P.

But it is simply not possible for me to add you to the alpha program if I dont have the email address which you use to login into the app.athom.com store. Please have a read of the quoted text above and if your still interested just follow the instructions.

Thanks

P.S. @Seraphim, same applies, if that wasnt clear.

Thanks

Hi @Bobbzy welcome to the community.

I really cant add anyone with the email address that you use to login to the app store.

Ok, but how can I send a direct message in here to you? can’t find how :slight_smile:

@Bobbzy Click on Jamies name and then on the envelope to send a private message.

Thanks

1.2.1

1.2.101 has been released it adds support for the VMC3030 - That is the Arlo (original).
It also fixes a bug where the VMC4030 icon was not being displayed correctly.

This means that currently supported are :

  • Arlo (VMC3030)
  • Arlo Pro (VMC4030)
  • Arlo Pro 2 (VMC4030P)

I have neither a VMC4030 or a VMC3030 - so please if it works, or doesnt let me know.

Thanks

I don’t suppose there is anyone with a VMC3010, I believe it is similar to the VMC3030 - but with out night camera (IR) ?

Will there also be support for the Arlo Q? I’m happy to test.

The Arlo Q is a different beast, as it is both a base station and a camera - support is possible, but it will be quite difficult with out access to a device.

I could help testing a VMB3010r2.

Any chance we could see a public alpha/beta of this app soon?

It is not possible to have a public alpha, once the app is stable and working we will look at releasing a beta.
