Will local recordings only be made from cameras connected to a "Pro" Base, or from ALL cams in plan?

So finally, Netgear reacted to all of the requests regarding local storage with the "Pro" - which is great (although I would have preferred seeing it implemented in the current "non-pro" base stations).

 

My question now is this:

 

I currently have around 10 cameras hooked to 2 base stations (base stations are in 2 different places of the house because one station will not give reception to the whole area).

 

I am willing to buy a new "Pro" base station, but what I am wondering:

 

Will local (USB) recordings be made from ALL cameras in my account (so also the one(s) that are hooked into a non-Pro base) or will local recordings only be made from the cameras connected to the new "Pro" base?

 

Thx

James will have to confirm ( or not) ...but I would think that only the cams sync'ed to the Pro base will do local record .

rkm,

 

While you are able to mix devices as you describe above (Arlo Wire-Free Base Station and Arlo Pro Base Station both on one account ), only cameras synced to the Arlo Pro Base Station will be able to record locally to an attached storage device.
