As first reported by Andrew O’Hara at Appleinsider.com, Arlo has pushed an update for their Smart Hub (model VMB4540), that brings HomeKit functionality to their Arlo Pro 3 cameras. This newer model, whilst similar to its still available predecessor, the Arlo Pro 2, supports 2K video, has colour night vision, which is a recent development in the world of smart cameras, as well as a 160º field of view.
Whilst the expected HomeKit update is more than welcome, the Arlo Pro 3 still lacks support for HomeKit Secure Video, which for many people, is the new benchmark for HomeKit-enabled cameras.
If you’re lucky enough to have the Arlo Pro system, with the VMB4540 SmartHub, then you can update your system to get HomeKit compatibility via a firmware update available in the Arlo app.
Arlo Pro 3 cameras, as well as the SmartHub, are available from Amazon.com now, with options for 0ne, two, three or four camera system setups, as well as just an add-on camera if you already have the basic setup.
