Arlo USB storage

I would like to ask a direct question to the Netgear people on here....

 

Will the older Arlo base station receive an update to enable USB storage?

I would like a simple yes or no answer.

 

I purchased the system approx 18 months ago and it was suggested then that the USB port on the base station would be used for future developments, I am a bit frustrated that this information does not seem to be very forthcoming.

 

I understand that the new pro camera's will work on the older base station, but without the additional features of USB storage it is of limited use.

 

I would also like to know UK release dates and plans for offers for existing users if these features will not be made available to the older hardware.

 

I look forward to your reply.

 

Thank you.

NO.  Only the PRO base

 

I am currently running a PRO cam on the older Arlo Base and there is no functional problems, It does allow audio/mic use.

 

BTW, Netegear will sell the new Pro base by itself so if you do want/need the local recording the rest of you old system is still as usable as it was before but the addition of recording local.

Re: Arlo USB storage

Thank you for the quick reply.

 

Good to know one way or the other what the plans are going forward.

 

I don't have any issues with the current cameras, I have 4 and apart from the delay times issue which to be honest is not a big issue unless the target is moving quickly!!

 

Buying the base station on its own would be good, though would also consider a pro base station and a single camera package as that would mean i can add the additional camera to my original 4 and get all the additional benefits.

 

Any idea when they will be available in the UK?
