IFTTT Automation

All,

I have been out of the tech game for a few years due to work commitments taking most of my free time, but I would like to get back into it. One task I want to tackle now is improving my home security system.

I have Arlo Video Doorbell and Arlo Pro 3 cameras around the house, but not all reach far enough to trigger recording through motion detection in all areas. So, I would like to get a few outside motion detectors (e.g. the Philips Hue one) to use to trigger recording the cameras. This is where I've been out of the game too long. Do I need to get a Philips Hue hub with the motion detector and an additional hub like SmartThings Hub from Samsung to handle the IFTTT events? Can I do it all from the Philips Hue hub? I'm not all sure what I need or what's needed to get IFTTT to work.

Thanks in advance.

Well, it looks like I'll be moving on from Arlo anyway, but if someone has an idea of how this IFTTT stuff works please still feel free to educate me!
