Expand scheduling capability

Please change the scheduling capability to allow for more than 6 scheduled items in a 24 hour period.

Due to little motion where my cameras are located, I must trigger on audio to check conditions at the site over a 24 hour period. If I triggered on audio for more time periods, the camera would be triggered constantly for wind. I do not want constant triggering, but want it to trigger according to a schedule.
I can only schedule 6 2 minute time periods for this action. Any time slots beyond 6 periods is lost.

My schedule now is:

12am-5am trigger on motion only.

5am - 5:02am trigger on motion and audio.

7am - 7:02am trigger on motion and audio.

9am - 9:02am trigger on motion and audio.

11am - 11:02am trigger on motion and audio.

1pm - 1:02pm trigger on motion and audio.

3pm - 3:02pm trigger on motion and audio.

3:02pm to 11pm trigger on motion only.


I would rather be able to schedule 23 2 minute time periods for triggering, but the cameras do not currently have that capability.



Right now there is a limit on the Number of recordings/week (around 40).  In order to have my surveillance I have the camera armed all time.This gives me alot of useless pictures. 

It would be very useful to be able to schedule 1-3 minutes motion or sound triggered recordings every hour, every day of the week. This will be 24x7=168 recordings/week. 

This will make it easier and faster to retrieve pictures, and, going further, it will create minimal data volume for Arlo's servers.
