Disabled camera alerts

I often disable cameras when mowing the lawn or other activities that cause the cameraman to come in constantly. It would be GREAT to be able to receive reminder alert that a camera or the whole system has been disarmed. Even more so if the system was hacked be an intruder who disabled the cameras. Or if a camera is knocked out of service by something. Currently there is no way to know other than logging into the app to see if a camera is enabled.

I agree. I need to be able to get notified right away if the power on my camera goes off. This is an important feature 


Great idea. Any idea if it will be provided @JessicaP ?


great idea



Very good idea! Also, it would be nice if there was a mode to disarm devices for a period of time, such as disarming for an hour, after which time the cameras go back to the previously set mode (arm, schedule or geolocation).  That would work well with a « mowing the lawn » use case!
