Xfinity home integration with Arlo cameras

It was last September when xfinity announced integration with Chamberlain /Liftmaster as well as Arlo cameras from Netgear .  I bought and successfully set up my Chamberlain garage door openers with the Xfinity Home app,  I bought some Arlo cameras in anticipation of the Xfinity Home integration and it still does not seem to be possible .  Is there something I am missing ,  or has Xfinity missed its deadline in offering support for Arlo?

Re: Xfinity home integration with Arlo cameras

Hello Labileaffect, I have not seen anything about the netgear cameras but I could ask around. If we do have something it will only be so the Xfinity home app opens the camera view. It would be the same as the Chamberlain my q where our app can open the garage door but nothing more. It's nice to have one app and that's all it does for you. The rules in xfinity home would never trigger the net gear cameras to record Smiley Sad 

Dont be upset if they don't bring the cameras into the xfinity home app. It's sometimes better not to have all your eggs in one basket.

Re: Xfinity home integration with Arlo cameras

Thanks for the reply. I was wanting to use rules to trigger record and also motion to activate lighting. The Arlo app is sufficient if it's just to view in xfinity app in the future. I do have Chamberlain integrated into xfinity app and that's handy, for instance when I turn off alarm while driving down my street I also open up my garage door.

Re: Xfinity home integration with Arlo cameras

I'm not sure if Comcast will ever integrate rules with other products such as nest thermostat, nest cameras or even the Chamberlain myQ. But it is nice to hear that you find a use for the Chamberlain integration on the Xfinity home app. I also want to stress caution while using the app and driving. Just a few weeks ago we had a middle school student get hit by a high school student while he was texting right on my road. Luckily she walked away from this with a broken arm caused by the mirror on his vehicle. A few inches over and he would have struck her dead on.

Re: Xfinity home integration with Arlo cameras

I know the orginal question is old but, this is a question that i still have been un able to answer. i have found several things on the web stating that Xfinity did partner with netgear/arlo. i would love to be able to add these cameras to the system if at all posible?

 

Comcast is bringing a couple of new third-party connected devices to Xfinity Home, its subscription-based home-security and home-automation platform. One of them is Chamberlain’s MyQ garage door controller and the other one is Netgear’s Arlo security camera.

The announcement comes a little over four months after the cable giant opened its connected-home platform to third-party vendors, admitting products such as August smart locks, Automatic’s car adapter/app, Cuff smart jewelry, the Leeo Smart Alert Nightlight, Lutron’s Caseta Wireless lighting controls, Rachio’s connected irrigation system, SkyBell’s video doorbell, and the Whistle pet monitor in the first wave.

That link for partners doesn't show any camera support. I'm wanting to add outdoor cameras that currently Xfinity doesn't support. Theirs must be covered and not exposed to the elements.

Re: Xfinity home integration with Arlo cameras

It’s becausw there isn’t any partners for camera support. Presently, it’s our cameras only.
