2 cameras died - can I upgrade to pro with old Arlo VMB3000 base?

I have an older Arlo -  VMB3000 with 3 cameras. 2 recently died. Can I upgrade by adding Pro cameras, or do I have to start all over to get rechargeable batteries and audio? Afraid the answer is "just suck it up and buy new" but posting is worth a try 😉. 

Thanks for your help!

Re: 2 cameras died - can I upgrade to pro with old Arlo VMB3000 base?

yes you can... the Arlo , Arlo pro, Arlo pro2 with work with either base. ( audio is in the cameras not base )

 

But, you may want to upgrade the base too as you get the USB backup port on the newer ( and siren ) and most packages seem cheaper (2 separate cameras vs 2 with base ) amazon sell the Pro cam for 150 each but the base and 2 cams for 251  ( save 49 )

 

Also as a side, if able you can use the older base for better coverage  one at each end of home, or front / rear and run 2 schedules
