I have several ubiquiti access points throughout the house to provide solid WiFi coverage to all corners. I recently bought the Costco 4-pack of Arlo Ultra2 cameras with Smarthub. My question is can I just have the Smarthub on my network to store local video recordings but connect the Arlo cameras directly my WiFi? I’m not sure how good the range is on the Smarthub.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ok...again, that page makes references to WiFi, which is a *standard*. If the cameras cannot connect to existing WiFi networks, this needs to be made abundantly clear. It currently is not clear *at all*. Nowhere on the product pages or FAQs does it say a smarthub is required or that the Ultra2 cannot connect to existing WiFi networks.
Can you elaborate on why a smarthub is required at all? What about for applications like mine when the existing WiFi network has greater reach than the smarthub? I don't want to buy another piece of hardware when there are plenty of APs able to service the cameras, given their tech specs indicate they work on WiFi.
