Best to share your flow so we can get a full understanding of what you are doing.
But I think I get it, its a common misunderstanding about how the Arlo Cameras work I think is causing your issue.
When you ask arlo for its latest picture, it does just that - sends you the last picture it has cached.
So we first need to ask the camera to update its picture, notice how I said … I ask it. It will then tell me when it has finally updated it. So there are lots of little actions required - Think about it like when you order something online. First you buy it, then they confirm it … then they send it … then it arrives finally you get to open it and see the picture you ordered.
So its a two step/flow process …
- You need a flow to ask to refresh the picture. Use the flow action of the camera “request new snapshot”.
- You need a flow which triggers when you receive the new picture (snapshot) Use the flow trigger/when on the camera “When new snapshot become available”.
I hope this solves your problem.
