Hello.  I have seen some posts in this forum, but nothing that is exactly what I'm looking for.

 

I like Arlo enough that I would like to install it at a second house.  

Can someone tell me the exact sequence to make this work with a single portal account where I can look at all cameras from an Iphone app without having to log out and log in every time I switch houses,

e.g. should I do things in this order:

 

Upgrade to Premium for my existing account (I'm fine with paying if I can do this from one account)

Install base to router at second home (or do I have to activate it on the network of the first home?)

Use the "new system" option on the IPhone app?  Use some other option on the portal?

Sync all of the cameras?

 

 

All information is appreciated...thanks.

To my knowledge...

you pay for higher level service which allows up to 3 bases

setup, add the new base to your existing account at your primary location.   I find PC access the easiest

unplug the second unit and take to secondary loaction and attach to internet via ethernet ( with cams sync'ed to that base of course )

all should appear under the original account once up and running.

 

Remember that cams can ONLY be sync'ed to one base at a time

 

Base is added under settings/subscription or setting/base ( there's an add base option )
