The Arlo Pro 3 security camera system has received support for Apple's HomeKit platform, the company announced. The system includes the Arlo Pro 3 2K security camera as well as the SmartHubs version of the VMB4540 version (which now have HomeKit support). Arlo says it will bring HomeKit support to other base stations and SmartHubs in the future, extending the utility for customers who own cell phones.
The Arlo Pro 3 security camera system was introduced in September last year; features a 160-degree viewing angle and Ultra HD resolution, as well as support for night color vision and two-way audio. The camera is described as a "system" because it is more than just a camera. The model has a built-in reflector and a siren that can deter the proverbs who might otherwise enter.
In addition to its security features, the Arlo Pro 3 camera comes with a magnetic stand that gives users greater flexibility when it comes to where the camera is installed. Also, the magnetic charging cable is weatherproof, which allows the camera to be placed outside even in rainy conditions. The Arlo Smart companion platform offers things like custom recommendations and access to saved images.
In an announcement Wednesday, Arlo revealed that the Arlo Pro 3 with the SmartMubs version of the VMB4540 version can now be used with Apple HomeKit. Device owners can find their serial number and firmware version information using the guide on the Arlo website here.
It is unclear how long HomeKit support for Arlo Pro 3 will take with other base stations and SmartHubs, but Arlo says it will be available "in the future." Arlo offers this security system in a variety of package options, including a single additional room for $ 199.99, a two-room system for $ 499.99, and a three-room system for $ 649.99.
