I recently had to perform a factory reset to get a firmware update to complete.  After the factory reset, I needed to gather up all my cameras and add them back to the base station configuration one at a time.  Tedious at best since not all my cameras are reachable from the ground.

Seeing that factory resets are a fairly common event in this forum, there needs to be an easier way to add your cameras back in after the reset.  What I'd like to see if the option to save / load a base station's configuration for times like this.  Save it before doing a reset,  perform the reset, then load the saved configuration back in and perform a soft-restart to have the configuration take effect.  Ideally, this would work for upgrading to a newer base station as well, but for certain it is needed for factory resets.

I like this idea. It'd be good to post it in the idea exchange here: https://community.arlo.com/t5/Arlo-Idea-Exchange/idb-p/arlo-idea-exchange
