How does the camera record and notify you in a power cut

I've recently purchased the Arlo 2 pro and wanted to know if/how the camera will record and notify me of any motion if the WiFi drops off or there's a power cut? Any help or guidance would be massively appreciated, thank you

Internet down; ( there is no notification if it goes down )

If the cameras are ARMED, and you have installed a speed stick in the USB backup port, then the cameras will still record as normal but only to the USB backup..... if internet comes back it will NOT auto fill the cloud library

 

Power down; ( no notification either, but my UPS does )

If the power is out, then the entire system is down.... the way around this is via #1 ( usb back up ) and running the base on a UPS.  As long as the base has power it will operate

 

* I suggest running a UPS on the modem, router, and base large enough to cover the time you want... usu a couple hrs is enough.
