Hi,

 Purchased at Costco a couple of weeks ago and generally like the system. However, for the life of me I cannot find an SD slot or USB slot anywhere on the cams or base. The base is the VBM3500 model. How do I record locally with this setup?

Thank you

You can't.  The VMB3500 is an entry-level base that unfortunately doesn't include local storage.

 

If you need that feature, then you'll need to return the kit to CostCo and get their more expensive version that has the VMB4000 base.  Or alternatively purchase a separate base (about $70 at Amazon US at the moment).

 

Today local storage is only a backup, though of course in the future that might change.
