Geofencing + scheduled mode

I use geofencing set to schedule when we're away, and disarmed when we're home.  The reason we use a schedule when we're away is that we have a cleaner who comes to the house at relatively predicatable times so we don't want to be alerted when we're both at work.

However we want to keep the outdoor cameras on at night time.  I set up a mode for this, but if we make this 'outdoorson' mode the default when geofencing is at home, we'll get alerted every time we go out into the garden during the day.  We only want outdoors on at night.

And we are TERRIBLE at remembering to turn Arlo on when we leave the house so I want to keep using geofencing.

Is there a way to set it up to do the following:

If we're home and it's night time, have outdoors on only.  during the day it's disarmed

If we're away, follow the schedule (which tells which times we don't need the cameras on but otherwise it's armed)

Hi @TracyN


Have you tried turning the notifications off for that custom mode during the day?
