Arlo Wire-Free and Arlo Pro cameras and base stations are completely compatible with one another. In most cases, you can install your new Arlo Pro system without making any changes to your existing Arlo Wire-Free system.
You only need to remove your older Wire-Free products from your Arlo account in the following three cases:
If none of these cases apply to you, you can set up your new Arlo Pro system, create new modes for it, and use both systems at the same time. You can sync a mix of Arlo Pro and Arlo Wire-Free cameras to each base station to suit your needs. For example, you can keep your Arlo Pro Wire-Free cameras inside and leave them plugged into an AC power source while your Arlo Wire-Free cameras stay outside.
For more information about setting up and using your new system, see the following knowledge base articles:
The Basic plan allows you to have up to five cameras on your account. The Premier plan allows a maximum of 10 cameras, and the Elite plan allows a maximum of 15 cameras. If you already have the maximum number of cameras synced to your account and you want to add new cameras, you must either upgrade your subscription plan or remove old cameras. You must remove one old camera for each new camera that you want to add.
If the combined total number of cameras from your old and new systems is greater than the maximum allowed by your subscription plan, you must either upgrade your subscription plan or remove enough existing cameras from your account that you can add the new cameras without exceeding the maximum allowed by your plan.

If you need another port for your new Arlo Pro base station, you have three options:
If you bought your new Arlo Pro system as a complete replacement for your Arlo system, you must disarm your existing Arlo system and remove the base station from your account. Removing the base station from your account also removes the cameras that are synced to the base station. Then you can set up your Arlo Pro system as a new system. You can also sync your existing Arlo Wire-Free cameras to your new Arlo Pro base station, up to the maximum number of cameras supported by your subscription plan.
WARNING: All modes and settings on your existing base station and cameras are erased as soon as you remove the devices from your account. If you want to add a deactivated device back to your account, you must complete the setup process again.
