Show camera on Apple TV / Blink Hue lights up when motion is detected?

Cupertino, January 30, 2021

I have an Arlo Ultra, a Philips Hue, an Apple TV 4k and a lot of frustration. I tried using HomeKit to make something seemingly simple, but maybe it's out of the question right now? Is there any way to use either HomeKit or Shortcuts to display my cameras on Apple TV whenever motion is detected? Besides, is there a way to open an app on Apple TV when motion is detected? So far, all I see is that I can make Apple TV play sound when there's movement, but I can't even do that without a subscription to Apple Music (no, thanks). I'm thinking of using it [HomeCam for HomeKit](, but I don't know if it adds other conditions to HomeKit automation, so I'm unhappy to spend the $ 5. Other than that, is there a way to do something like flashing Hue lights or temporarily change their colors as a notification? I feel like I'm missing something simple here.
