I have A VMB4000 but the forum doesn't list it so I input VMB3000 so I could post a question. Right now my cameras are linked to the base and my lights are linked to the bridge. Wouldn't it make sense to link cameras AND lights all to the bridge? I have the bridge located in the center of the house.

Model: VMB3000 | Arlo Base Station

The lights use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to connect to the bridge while the cameras and bridge use WiFi to connect to the base. So, no, the cameras would never be able to use the bridge.

 

And the pulldown for system type is based more on the SYSTEM rather than individual components.
