I didn't buy yet the cameras, i want to make sure i can control the cameras and view and download the recordings but from a remote computer, not the computer that is connected to the router to which the NETGEAR is connected.

In other words can i manage and view the recordings from a computer that is on an other LAN

You can control and d/l the videos and watch live from any computer / tablet / phone that has internet access....

I was able to watch my home even while at sea on a cruise.

How do i do that?

The first time i install the cameras and the NETGEAR controller i use the computer at the home where the cameras are, i understand. i enter the site arlo.netgear.com and it searches the cameras.

But later can i use arlo.netgear.com to enter from an other computer?

If on any computer use https://arlo.netgear.com/ with your user name and pw...

OR

if on Ios or android phone , use the apps ( found in the stores )

But the first time NETGEAR finds the cameras i must use a computer that is on the same network as the router NETGEAR is connected to, right?

I made a mistake, i will probably buy Arlo or Arlo Pro.

Can i attach a fixed wire, AC or DC, to them, in order not to change batteries?

It's hard to adjust each time the angle

Is a transformator supplied, is there an inlet to the transformator in the Arlos?

Arlo cams use 4 - 123 type batteries and do not have an ac adapter option

Arlo Pro ( and Pro2 ) use a rechargeable battery pack and can be plugged into ac ( tho at this time there is no outdoor ac adapter as the previous outdoor one was recalled )

Check out the product info at the top of page and also check the FAQs as almost every question has been answered.

I don't find a page for the base station, for which models is it suitable?

I think of buying Arlo Q or Arlo Q Plus, but i don't see in the manual that i need a base station.

So, if i use a mix of Arlo wire-free cameras, which need a base station and Arlo Q which don't need...

Is there only one model of base station? it is needed only for the Arlo wire free models Arlo, Arlo Pro?
