I am sure they will soon be selling the Ultra bases individually but I intend to use both the Pro base for the older cameras and add the Ultra base to the same account for the Ultra cameras. There is no limit as to how many base stations you can have on one account. The two base stations are quite different with each having its own advantages and disadvanteges so why not keep both?

One example is that the Pro base has a built in siren whereas the Ultra base does not - the siren has been moved to the camera which will probably be mounted outside. Keeping the Pro base and adding the Ultra base gives you the best of both worlds.

Anyone tried to get the Ultra system to trigger the alarm in the Pro hub?

I believe that will come later this year. Currently I don't think the Ultra camera will work with the previous bases.

My thinking was along the lines of leaving the Ultra cameras connected to the Ultra hub and then using a rule to trigger something that would use the alarm on the Pro hub.

 

I gather that it is possible to have rules that bridge the gap.
