Hello Everyone, 

On a large property I've installed a wifi system with sufficient coverage. 
For the cameras I've installed 8 Pro 3 cameras and 2 Ultra cameras.

Ad for now, the property is too big for all the cameras to be in range of just one smarthub. Is it possible to add another smarthub, if yes how?
If not possible what other options are there?

I hope you can help me, thanks in advance.

You can.  You do need to make sure there is an ethernet connection available at the location for the new smarthub.  You just remove the cameras that you want to shift from the account, and then re-add them to the new smarthub.

That is the only option with these cameras.  Ultra and Pro-3 cameras connect to the smarthub over a closed WiFi network.  They won't connect to your home WiFi network.

 

The Arlo Q would connect to your WiFi, but it is an indoor 1080p camera.

Can both smarthubs added to the same account or do they need a separate account each?

Both can be added to the same account.

As PS...

there is no limit to the number of bases you can have on any account, nor location

it is the only true way to expand coverage
