The popular Apple HomeKit framework for iOS devices enables parents to manage all of their smart home accessories seamlessly from an iPhone or iPad. Once the Arlo Baby camera is added, it appears in the Apple Home app on your iOS device alongside your other HomeKit compatible smart home accessories. The Apple Home app is available to all iOS customers to easily and securely manage HomeKit enabled accessories such as the Arlo Baby camera. Free to download from the Apple App Store, the Apple Home app is also included with the most recent iPhone and iPad releases.
“Arlo is 100% focused on delivering products and solutions that provide our customers with the best user experience,” said Pat Collins, senior vice president of Arlo products at NETGEAR. “By making Arlo Baby compatible with Homekit we have now made the all-important experience of monitoring your child even better. Whether it’s the convenience of asking Siri to quickly view your baby live, or the ability to quickly check in directly from Apple TV using the Arlo app, Arlo Baby customers now have the ultimate in convenience and flexibility. We’re thrilled to be a partner with Apple and looking forward to growing our ecosystem of HomeKit-enabled products.”
The Arlo Baby Smart HD Monitoring Camera features 1080p HD video, advanced night vision capabilities, two-way audio, ambient air quality sensors, a music-and-sound player, and a dimmable night light into one adorable, personalizable package. The Arlo smart analytics platform provides real-time, customizable alerts when motion or sound is detected, even recognizing the sound of your baby’s cries. A built-in rechargeable battery means you can move the untethered Arlo Baby camera around the house as needed. Netgear offers a rolling 7 days of free cloud recordings. You can upgrade to a paid plan if you need to store video for a longer period of time.
