Netgear Arlo- Wireless Outdoor camera
« on: July 11, 2015, 10:04:33 am »
Has anyone tried an Arlo yet?  Wireless outdoor camera by Netgear.  Doesn't look like it records 24/7 but only when movement.  Jury still seems to be out on batteries.  Some great reviews, some questionable.

Alright.  So I think how Arlo works is that it creates a new wireless SSID named NETGEAR33 at least in my case.  It's protected by WPA2-psk.   I think if we were able to get on the network we might be able to try this.  Once connected we can try to remote into each camera with the mentioned links.  The next step after that would be to change the wifi scheme so that it could see the controller.  Probably changing the gateway on the cameras to the gateway on the vera unit would work.

I may try to crack the password but don't have time to try now.   I wish Arlo/Netgear would just let us get into the configuration to this system.

Any progress on this? :)

 I'm looking into automatically set the Arlo's mode based on the House mode. I'm assuming it can be done based on the way is done using  SmartThings, please check link below:
https://community.smartthings.com/t/netgear-arlo-mode-management-autoarlo/34617

Any suggestions? should it be a plugin or it can be done with a switch and some lua code

I'd love to see someone create a plugin for managing and viewing Arlo through Vera. Come on smart people. Get to work!  ;)

Just discovered that Samsung Smartthings hub has support for Netgear Arlo cameras. This means that it should be able to integrate the Arlos with Vera as well.  :D
Anyone can make a plugin that logs in to Arlo (which seem what Smartthings way is)?

Arlo cameras are partnered with Wink ... and there's a Wink app for Vera ... wonder if they'd talk?
