I can have a schedule for all cameras or none, but I can't have a separate schedule per camera. We have this need, some of our cameras (like the front door) we only need armed at night or when we aren't home. Other cameras are for keeping an eye on the kids and those should have a completely different schedule.

 

This feature would make the whole system much more useful for us and less hassle to manually configure throughout the day.

Hey jnankivel,

 

If you need different schedule for different cameras, feel free to try creating different custom modes for each camera. You can read here on how to use different modes: How do I create a mode with different rules for each Arlo Wire-Free or Arlo Pro Wire-Free camera

While the scheduling flexibility isn't as good as it could be, you can schedule some cameras (so there are more options than all armed  or all disarmed).

As a PS... you can also run more than one base.

Tho usu you can fit multi cameras into a single schedule, sometimes it is just easier to run two which two bases allow.

 

I run two bases at times and it is easy to separate groups of cameras ( like front / back  or in/out ).

 

There is no limit of the number of bases on any account level AND it is the only way to expand coverage area.

Looks like the answer is no, the software doesn’t allow for a per-camera schedule.

I admit that Arlo Idea Exchange could mean anything but it is really for the sort of Feature Request flagged in your subject.
