Netgear updates Arlo Baby Camera to make it first HomeKit-compatible baby monitor

Netgear has issued a software update to make its Arlo Baby Camera the first baby monitor to be compatible with Apple’s HomeKit. Updating to the latest version of the Arlo app will reveal a new HomeKit option in the camera’s settings, allowing users to add the device to HomeKit, name the camera and assign it to the room. After that, the Arlo Baby Camera will be available as a video feed from Apple’s Home app. The Home app won’t provide access to some of the more in-depth features, such as controlling lights and music, but for users with multiple camera feeds in the Home app the update should prove particularly useful.
