"Snapshot" Of What A Camera Can See Live For Devices Dashboard Screen

Sometimes I just want to check in on my dogs to see if they're sleeping, window watching, etc. I'd like if there was a way to get a quick "snapshot" of what's happening. Right now the devices "dashboard" shows a still frame of the last recorded motion on all camera. On cameras I don't have set to record, ever, (my interior cams) it shows the last frame from the last time I viewed the live stream. So, to get a "snapshot" of what's happening, I have to live view, wait for it to load, see what's happening, then close the stream. 


I'd like if there was a shortcut button or preferrably a setting for a camera (all cameras? select cameras?) to refresh and show a live still frame on the dashboard. Either by press of the button to simply update the preview, or, a setting toggle to refresh the camera preview on page refresh or at a given interval (0-60 min)
