This is new and sold via Amazon and it is an Arlo product, but Arlo does not advertise or talk about it.

the round model ( 3500 ) does not have a siren... it is an older model ( or a lesser version that was sold thru costco or similar ).

 

I would look for another 4000 model like you have over the 3500

That looks like the model 3500 base unit...

The advantages of having a second base is expanding coverage ( it is the only true way to do so , link closest cams to each base ) and allows you to run multi schedules ( like inside/outside, front / back ).

 

Downside is they must be armed separately

Thanks, but I was planning on buying this to replace my old base station (VMB4000-100NAS).  The more recently released model is less expensive, and being new I was hoping for improvements.   Do you think this new model can replace or be used as a stand-alone as opposed to being used as a second base to expand coverage ?

The VMB4000 has an alarm.

 

Does the VMB3500?
