Is there any update to this question?  The current proposed "solution/answer" is over 3 YEARS old.  


If the originla Arlo still has those limits, do the newer base stations have different limits?  Has the subscription model changed?

There was another thread I responded to today - is this a dupe post?


Ive been told that 15 cameras is the max suggested to pair with one base although apparently more can theoretically be paired. It's likely a performance issue as you add cameras but the big thing is that regardless of how many cameras are paired only 5 can stream at one time. Thus, if you have a whole slew of cameras paired and it's possible that many of them could stream at the same time (live view and/or recording) you may lose videos.


I'd suggest a second (or third) base before adding more and more cameras to a single base.
