Arlo Unveils New HomeKit-Capable Video Doorbell, Coming Soon

Arlo which is a sub-brand of Netgear is now becoming one of the most popular sellers of the accessories of smart home and until now it only offered an audio-only doorbell, unlike so many of its competitors. That is the thing changing, though, with a new video doorbell that is now announced.

Arlo Unveils New HomeKit-Capable Video Doorbell


Unlike the other video doorbells, this Arlo product will hopefully have one particular feature that will be of note to iPhone, iPad, and Mac users – support for Apple’s HomeKit. If it follows the same patterns set out by other cameras of Arlo, then the potential is certainly there.

This new product was first spotted by Zatz Not Funny! and images were published online by I-View Now. Recently a press release announced the company’s partnership with Arlo.

“I-View Now, announced today it will be partnering with Arlo Technologies. This integration, when completed, will allow dealers to add Arlo Security Cameras, the #1 internet connected camera brand in the U.S., to any professionally monitored security system to provide video alarm verification services.”

Those images show Arlo’s lineup of existing as well as unannounced products, it includes the above-mentioned doorbell. There’s also some information regarding what the doorbell might hopefully offer, too.

“In addition, Arlo’s future lineup will be expanding to include a new video doorbell with 2MP Full HD video quality, wide field-of-view and crystal-clear two-way audio, all-in-one unit for those that prefer a unified video and audio smart entry solution. For added ease and versatility, the new video doorbell can connect to existing digital and mechanical door chimes.”

Video doorbells are all the rage right now, and the entry of Arlo into the market is one that will be well received by those who are a big fan of their HomeKit products. We obviously don’t know any information regarding the price or release details right now, but we hope it won’t be too long before those questions are answered.
