Well if they did this, how could they make all that sweet sweet cloud subscription money, that you literally have to pay to have usable products. They don't want consumers to have a local storage solution, because they need it in the cloud to sell it and probably have it get compromised at some point. Because let's be real, they all do.

That explains. Not exactly clever. Have already used a generic mount. Not really happy about this arrangement

One major concern. Currently, if the Internet goes AWOL for any reason there is no possibility of a local recording and obviously no chance of a remote recording. This is a major weakness until such time that the 2nd generation cameras have a firmware upgrade. When, and if, this happens hopefully one will not have to uninstall and then reinstall otherwise a major hassle for such people as myself with cameras at multiple sites. Needs sorting.

Hopefully a simple explanation. Battery life of 2nd generation seems to be shorter significantly compared with 1st generation. Also seems to charge far faster. I have 4 and all 4 much the same. If this just me orbhas anyone else noticed?

Hi, @JamesC. Any news about the update? We are waiting for a solution to connect 2nd gen to the hubs. In my case, specifically with VMB4540.
