As of July 24, 2020, the Arlo 3 Floodlight Camera from Arlo now supports the Apple HomeKit smart home platform. While Arlo users can already control their Pro 3 Floodlight cameras via the Arlo app, HomeKit compatibility provides added convenience for Apple customers. As you’re aware, in addition to HomeKit, the Pro 3 Floodlight Camera is also compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and IFTTT. Users can now conveniently access and control their Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight – and other compatible Arlo devices – through the Home app, allowing for:
- Flexible Streaming: Watch live video streams directly from the Apple Home app or the Arlo app.
- Notifications: HomeKit sends users mobile alerts when their Pro 3 Floodlight detects motion.
- Floodlight Controls: Arlo users can turn their floodlight on/off and adjust brightness via HomeKit.
- Voice Control with Siri: Users can engage Siri for hands-free access to their Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight camera live stream.
- Helpful Automations: Pro 3 Floodlight cameras can now trigger actions with other HomeKit compatible devices.
To enable HomeKit, users must ensure their Pro 3 Floodlight is connected to the same WiFi network as a compatible Arlo SmartHub or base station (sold separately). While product details are outlined below, you can also read our full review on the Pro 3 Floodlight Camera here on MacSources.com.
