I've setup three Arlo Pro cameras in the US.  I will travel to China next month, and wondering if I can access my Arlo Pro camera recordings or live streaming there? If yes, is there additional setup is require to gain access such as vpn on mobile device or on my laptop.  I read some online posting that Arlo Pro online access might be blocked in China. My model number is Arlo Pro hardware# WMB4000r3 and firmware  Please advised. Thank you in advanced for your help!

Any location that has Internet access to will work. Others have suggested that China may block this for some reason but that may have changed over time. Unless someone can verify this, you'd have to just try it yourself.

No, inaccessible. My wife is in China now and all cameras are offline even with a good WiFi connection.

Real-time viewing is not accessible. Error message saying the basestation is offline. You can still access the recorded version. And if you set up your account with Outlook email address, you will still receive email alerts.
