Ultra Camera with VMB4000r3 Base Not Recording
I have 3 Pro 2 cameras all working and recording to a local USB drive. I added an ULTRA and I get push notices for motion / sound detection and the light on the camera activates. I can see the live image from the camera online and on my phone. However, no videos are being recorded on the USB drive and the recording counter for the ULTRA remains at 0.
Base station firmware is up to date (126.96.36.199...), camera firmware is up to date (1.070.50.2...). I have rebooted the base station and my router, cycled power to the camera with no luck. - Any suggestions? Thanks!
Check your active mode and make sure the Ultra camera has rules to record on motion. If the Ultra camera isn't listed in your active mode, it will not record.
I have a "custom" mode set up for all cameras to record when motion (and in the case of the Ultra, sound) is detected. This mode is working for the other cameras. From the web portal, it shows an exclamation point next to to "Record video" which ties to a footnote that video clips will be stored in the SD card. The "Learn More" link indicates that USB devices are supported as well.
I started proactively restarting the base every 2 days and have been able to record for 20 days with no gaps. Without the restart from the software with 4 cameras 1 will stop recording in 3-4 days. It is never the same camera that stops.
Same behavior. Light on Ultra goes on, get a push alert, but no recording shows up in the library or the count on the device screen. Hard drive on USB port has 100+GB available and continues to record clips from other cameras.
Without a subscription, you won't see any recordings show up in the library for the Ultra camera. For recordings to be saved to the cloud (library) you must have an Arlo Subscription for the Arlo Ultra camera. With a local storage device enabled, recordings are also stored there, but to view them, you must eject the storage device and connect it to a computer. These will not show up in the library.
