I got the Arlo base station and 4 cameras for free, I was disappointed to find out that the base station does not support local storage

We don’t plan to use the subscription plans

Is there any point of having the cameras without local or cloud storage?

With the older models, you should still get 1 week free storage. That's all I ever had. You have a week to download any videos that you need.

You should be able to attach an external drive to the back of your base station. There should be a USB port for it.

Depending on their base. The 3000 series base does not.

Well, the 3500 does not but the 3000/3010 does. Unfortunately, those existing ports have never supported local storage and never will.
