Arlo Smart Plans/trial question

Ok, so I just purchased and setup my Arlo Ultra (2 camera) and last week setup my Doorbell. I am kind of confused by all the plans despite only 2 in existence (Premier and Elite). My doorbell is in some 3 month trial and my camera set is in Premier 1 year trial.

I plan to use local storage but do want a subscription for the smart features. Since I am using local storage do I never need Elite? Or will I not be able to see 4K videos without Elite?

Also, when my 3 month doorbell trial ends will I need to pay for that on a separate plan or can it be rolled into my other plan?

Am I dumb or is this way to complicated for only 2 plans available haha...

Hi @kibolbugs43


You may find more info regarding 4k local storage here: How do I record 4K videos to a local storage device?
