Description: The article below is basically focusing on showing us the information about external local storage of Arlo Pro and the ways to add external storage and access it via laptop.
I had a special request to hook up a USB external hard drive to this arla probe base station, so I did that, I hooked it into the USB port on the back of the device and I’m going to go ahead and configure this here through the our loafs neck gear site.
Let me show you what we’ve got, we go into the settings, go under home and then I’ve got a little storage tab here, that says local storage, we click on that guy, it says the USB device is there automatic override USB device recording, it wants to do a format of the USB device.
Let’s go ahead and give that a shot, let’s go back to the local storage, everything looks good, that is configured, so what I’m going to do is that I’m going to go back here, it’s going to pit, it’s going to pick me up to my movement.
let’s see this thing alert, I’m back, I got the alert on my phone, that motion was detected, it shows that we’ve got motion, we’ll play this clip, I can download that clip from here, I can share it, copy the link, email link or delete this, we want to go ahead and grab it from that device.
We want to grab it from our local storage, so I’m going to go ahead and safely eject this USB device, let’s inject that sucker out, so it is ready to go, let me grab it and plug it into this laptop, then we can see how easy this is, but this is going to be nice.
I mean you get seven days storage in the cloud and then man an indefinite amount here locally, so if you could get that, it is so dumped, it’s saved as an mp4, let’s take a look at it, it looks good to me, it is safely adding USB storage and accessing it from your laptop.
