How do I add Arlo cameras to the Stringify app?

Stringify is compatible with Arlo Wire-Free, Arlo Pro Wire-Free, Arlo Q, and Arlo Q Plus cameras. Your Arlo cameras must be in Armed mode or in a custom mode to detect motion or audio and report it to Stringify. When Arlo cameras are disarmed, they do not inform Stringify about motion or audio detected, but they still respond to requests to change modes and record clips.


You can also create custom modes to detect motion or audio or both, but not record a video clip. This can be useful for advanced flows where you want to use the Arlo camera as a detection device, but not capture video unless other conditions in the flow are met. For more information about creating custom modes, see the following knowledge base articles:


In advanced Stringify flows, you can use the same Arlo camera twice in the same flow. For example, if your Arlo front door camera detects motion, it's after 5 p.m., and you're away from home, you can tell Stringify to trigger a 20-second recording from your Arlo front door camera and a 40-second recording from your Arlo driveway camera.
