When will smart alerts be back up and running again. It keeps messing up allot. I only have people selected but now I’m getting alerts for motion. I only want people and that’s why I only have that selected. It worked fine until about 10am today been working fine until your system messed up last time.

@BarnabusSpeakEZ from twitter @ArloSmartHome is this compatible with the older base station (arlo pro)


 

Yes. In fact, the Arlo Pro 3 camera is compatible with VMB5000, VMB4540, VMB4000, and VMB4500. Please refer to this KB article for more details. https://kb.arlo.com/000062253/Is-Arlo-Pro-3-backwards-compatible-with-my-existing-Arlo-system

Sorry just saw email and thought it was a reply to my question about smart alerts not working. I have people only selected now getting alerts for any motion. This keeps happening allot and seems like no solution fixes it. It fixes itself after several days.

Here is a question from JS on Facebook: What is the difference between arlo pro 3 and 4k?

 

Arlo Pro 3 cameras feature 2K QHD with 2560x1440 resolution.  Arlo Ultra cameras have 4K resolution at 3840x2160. This means you will see more details with the Arlo Ultra.

I want to add one of the Pro 3 cameras to my pro 2 system. I also would like to be able to give someone (like my kids) access to viewing the recordings but without giving them the ability to delete videos or turn off cameras (I got teenagers) that would be awesome!

Do I need a subscription to save recordings on the cloud or is this free 7 days like my Pro/Pro 2 cameras?

1) Yes, In fact, Arlo Pro 3 cameras are compatible with VMB5000, VMB4540, VMB4000, and VMB4500. Please refer to this KB article for more details. https://kb.arlo.com/000062253/Is-Arlo-Pro-3-backwards-compatible-with-my-existing-Arlo-system 

2) Yes, you can give access to your kids, loved ones, or friends as long as they have an account, and you add them as a friend in your Arlo account. Here are some KB articles to help with that:

@ArloSarah 

The Arlo Pro 3 comes with a 3 month Arlo Smart trial that includes 2K recordings to the cloud with 30 days of history. After your trial is over, you will need to sign up for an Arlo Smart Plan to continue to record to the cloud.

@Louis_ArloPM 

 

So, a 3 month trial for 2K recordings. Okay, does this mean 1080p recordings are included for 7 days or do I need a subscription for all recordings regardless of resolution? How much is the subscription and what plan do I need? Sorry, jus t trying to understand if I want this over my free Arlo Pro and Pro 2 cameras.

 

Thanks!

@ArloSarah  you will need an Arlo Smart Plan to have recordings to the cloud with the Arlo Pro 3 after your 3 month trial is over.
