Tomorrow is deadline for my Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Smart Notification trial cancellation.  Does the camera and floodlight cease to work when trial is canceled? Received notice that AC connectivity is turned off in camera. This seems  Previously created activity zone.  Should I delete them since I am not subscribing to a monthly payment plan?  And, shouldn't my camera and floodlight still work without a plan?  I have the 7 day cloud recording.  Shouldn't I still have that feature without a Smart Notification monthly payment plan?

Any camera newer than the Pro 2 requires a subscription for cloud recordings (as well as Smart, if you want it). The older cameras will keep on working as they always have but the floodlight either needs that sub or be connected to your base so local recordings can happen. In order for local recordings to work you'll need at least a VMB4000 base - older/lesser ones aren't capable. If your base is lower than the VMB4540 you'll need to safely eject the drive to view recordings on a computer. The VMB4540 and higher can use the app to view the recordings directly.
