We will be losing power due to the hurricane.  What is the best strategy regarding an  Arlo Pro system?  We will bring the cameras inside and turn to off position:

1. Or should we remove the battery completely?.

2. Should we also turn off the base station rather than wait until we lose power?  

We aren't leaving home so security is the least of our concerns at this moment!

I guess it depends on how long you expect to be without power. If more than just a few hours and you're bringing the cameras inside, go ahead and remove the batteries from the cameras and turn off the base station.

 

If you turn off the base station without turning off or removing the battery from the cameras, the cameras will burn through their batteries trying to find the base station
