I currently have 3 Arlo Pro 2 cameras and was looking to add two more.  Does anyone know if the Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera is compatible with my current system?  Bear in mind I have the VMB 3500 Hub and not the higher numbered one.

jetsticks,

 

Arlo Essential Spotlight will not sync to a VMB3000 or VMB3500 base station. For more information, take a look here: Can I connect my Arlo Essential wire-free camera to an Arlo SmartHub or base station?

 

However, with Arlo Essential Spotlight, syncing to a Base Station or SmartHub is optional, as you can sync the camera directly to your home router.

I'm looking to add a an ARLO ULTRA to my system but want to make sure it will connect/is compatible with by base station. VMB4000r3. If it will not connect, what is the best resolution camera that is compatible? Or how much is a new base and will that connect to my other H3 cameras. Please advise.  Thanks!
