Ultra Cameras don't seem to want to stay connected

Since this braintrust on here has been so incredibly helpful, I have one more question. Is there a way to transfer/link all of my old cameras that were connected to my old Arlo Pro Hub to my new Ultra Hub without having to erase them from the app and relink them to the new hub? There has to be an easier way to delink and link them to the new hub, right?

Not that I know of, but why transfer them over to the new base? Just have two bases on one account. One advantage of doing this is that the Pro base has a built in siren for indoor use but no siren in the cameras. The Ultra base has no indoor siren built in but does have the siren built into the cameras which can be used outside. Keeping both bases in this case would be a win-win. Plus, keeping the second base will allow you to get a stronger signals to cameras that are furthest from the base if you use a mesh router, wifi extender or powerline adapter to plug the second base into. I currently have 3 base stations on one account.

Sell the old base = defray the cost of the new cameras.

 

Also simplifies things.

 

I have a small property so I am not really concerned about singal loss.

On a different note. Is anybody using the arlo doorbell with the new ultra cameras? I tried to add my arlo doorbell to the ultra base station but it will only recognize my old base station. That is problematic for me since I want to use the ultra with my doorbell

Unfortunately, the doorbell isn’t supported by Ultra. Unless that changed. I ended up returning and getting a Ring.
