Arlo


The arlo implementation allows you to integrate your Arlo devices in Home Assistant.

Configuration

To enable device linked in your Arlo account, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
arlo:
  username: YOUR_USERNAME
  password: YOUR_PASSWORD

Configuration Variables

username

(string)(Required)The username for accessing your Arlo account.

password

(string)(Required)The password for accessing your Arlo account.

scan_interval

(int)(Optional)How frequently to query for new data. Defaults to 60 seconds.

It is recommended to create a dedicated user on Arlo website to be used within Home Assistant and then share your Arlo cameras.

Finish its configuration by visiting the Arlo sensor page or Arlo camera page or Arlo control panel page. Arlo also has a service call arlo.update that can be manually called to force an update prior to the regular scheduled interval.

The Arlo component also provides a camera service to enable/disable the motion detection sensor. The example below enables the motion detection every time the Home Assistant service starts.
