Use Camera Name as the Local Storage File Name

I have my arlo pro 2 base station set to record to local storage but the files names are the camera serieal number and not what I named the camera.


The local storage file names should use the camera name inorder to easily find specific recordings.

When a camera file is downloaded, its name is simply the epoch timestamp. This is fine, but if a user has multiple cameras, the videos all get mixed together upon download. It would be nice if the filenames had the epoch timestamp as well as the camera name (or serial number, or some other sort of identifier). This would make it easier for downloaded videos to be sorted without having to go through each one and rename them manually.
