Are you wondering how to view your Arlo cameras on your TV? Look no further! In this article, we will walk you through a step-by-step tutorial on how to connect your Arlo and Alexa accounts to enable viewing your Arlo cameras on your TV using your Fire TV stick.

Step 1: Enable the Arlo Skill
To get started, open your Alexa app and click on the menu button, followed by “Skills and Games.” Search for the “Arlo” skill and tap on it to enable it. Follow the on-screen prompts to link your Arlo and Alexa accounts. You will be required to enter your Arlo username and password for successful account linking. Once done, tap on “Done” to proceed.

Step 2: Discover Your Arlo Devices
After linking your accounts, the Alexa app should automatically discover your Arlo cameras. However, if it doesn’t, go back to the home screen and check if you see a notification at the top of your screen that says something like “X number of devices discovered.” If not, pull down on the screen to refresh the device list. Verify that all your Arlo devices are displayed, including your base station, front door camera, doorbell, and car camera.

Step 3: Connect Your Alexa Device with Fire TV Stick
Now, let’s connect your Alexa device to your Fire TV stick. Select the Alexa app menu, followed by “Settings.” Scroll down to the “TV & Video” section and tap on “Fire TV.” From there, you can link your Alexa device to your Fire TV stick. Note that you can only link one Echo device to your Fire TV stick.

Step 4: Enjoy Viewing Your Arlo Cameras on TV
Once your devices are linked, you’re ready to stream your Arlo cameras on your TV using Alexa voice commands. Press the microphone button on your Fire TV stick remote and say “Alexa, show [camera name]” to view a specific camera. For example, you can say “Alexa, show front door camera” or “Alexa, show car camera.” To return to the home screen, say “Alexa, go home.” And to stop viewing, say “Alexa, stop.”

By following these steps, you can easily view your Arlo cameras on your TV using your Fire TV stick and Alexa voice commands. It’s a convenient way to keep an eye on your home or property without having to switch between different devices.

In conclusion, the key points to remember when setting up the viewing of Arlo cameras on your TV are:
1. Enable the Arlo skill in your Alexa app and link your Arlo and Alexa accounts.
2. Ensure that all your Arlo devices are discovered in the Alexa app and refresh the list if needed.
3. Connect your Alexa device to your Fire TV stick in the “TV & Video” settings.
4. Use Alexa voice commands on your Fire TV stick remote to view specific Arlo cameras and control the viewing experience.

With these instructions, you can seamlessly integrate your Arlo cameras with your TV setup and enjoy the convenience of monitoring your home or property from the comfort of your couch.
