Arlo Camera


To get your Arlo cameras working within Home Assistant, please follow the instructions for the general Arlo component.

This component is not yet able to live stream from your Arlo camera, but it will be able to playback the last video capture.

Once you have enabled the Arlo component, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
camera:
  - platform: arlo
    ffmpeg_arguments: '-pred 1 -q:v 2'

Configuration variables:

  • ffmpeg_arguments: (Optional): Extra options to pass to ffmpeg, e.g. image quality or video filter options.

Note: To be able to playback the last capture, it is required to install the ffmpeg component. Make sure to follow the steps mentioned at FFMPEG documentation.
