I just purchased the arlo go for my barn because we had no wifi avail there.  My question is, can any other arlo outdoor camera be used as an additional camera in my barn or does it have to be another arlo go specifically?  Also, can any other brand of camera operate off of the arlo go's wifi or will I have to have an additional Arlo brand camera?  A wireless or wired camera will work as I do have power in my barn I just wasn't sure if the additional camera could operate off of the arlo go wifi hotspot or not?  Is it possible for my iphone to use the arlo go hotspot while I am in the barn too?

TMK, the GO cameras are cellular only....they do not provide any hotspot or tethering option.

so the basic answer is no other Arlo cams can be used

How far is the barn from your house (or other place of Internet access)? Could you use a WiFi or powerline extender to provide access to the Internet, allowing a base to be plugged into the extender? You could then use any Arlo camera.
