Where is Dropbox and Local USB storage support for Arlo?!

Where is the USB support for the non-Pro Arlo base station? This has got to be the worst marketing trick I have ever seen.There needs to be a firmware update to activate these ports to use USB storage....As well as integrating Dropbox to Arlo for archiving the footage. I don't want to manually back up videos every time. Any thoughts?

Model: VMB3000 | Arlo Base Station, VMC3030 | Arlo Wire-Free Camera

It's not going to happen... the USB ports were for possible upgrades that never made it to the market.

They are non functional except for power ( TBMK )

 

The Pro base has a faster processor and more memory which allowed the local record option

 

One of the users here ( Jeff ) had a script for auto download...and if you don't go that way it comes back to manual.

Thanks for the reply @TomMac. That really sucks though....I just purchased this unit in November and am past the return window. Wonder if Netgear would take a tradein for the Pro base station? Smiley Happy 

 

Otherwise, this is pretty upsetting.
