Arlo Smart Home has today announced Apple HomeKit support for its Wi-Fi security cameras, allowing owners to use voice commands to access and control multiple Arlo cameras from one place. To take full advantage of HomeKit features, however, a supported and connected Arlo Pro or Pro 2 camera is required.
Apple HomeKit now works with #Arlo Pro 2 and Arlo Pro cameras.
