I have added a second hub and added a USB stick to it. It's formatted, it shows that it's connected to the hub and I have selected local recording. The camera attached to the new hub is set to record video. Problem is, the new hub's library is not shown in the list (shows cloud and my other hub). I can't view the hub's library because it's not shown in the library list. Can't see a setting that I need to change to fix this.

WHat model base? Since it has a siren, I expect it's a VMB4000 or 4500. Both should allow recordings but you can't use the app to view the recordings (I suspect it's a hardware limitation). You need to safely eject the drive for viewing on a computer.

Its a VBM4000. I bought it for the siren, didn't expect that I wouldn't be able to view recordings via the app. 😕

The newer bases have some access in app to the mem card, but the 4000 was the first to use USB backup and it really is a backup that need to be viewed externally.
