Detects Object

This trigger fires when your Arlo device detects motion for a specific object type. This requires an Arlo Smart subscription for each device that is configured in the trigger.

About this trigger

Triggers, queries, and actions are the building blocks of Applets. Triggers tell an Applet to start, queries ask a question, and actions are its end result.
