I created a mode called "Outdoor" so I can turn on motion detection for my outdoor cameras at night.  Of course I can manually switch from my default mode - Geofencing - to this mode, but is there any way to automatically, based on the time of day, switch between Geofencing and Outdoor mode?  I have used IFTTT, but it only supports the Arm & Disarm modes.   I've requested for them to support Schedule mode, but I'm not holding my breath.

Why won't the schedule work for you? In the GF settings, Home would use one mode and Away would use another. In either case, the schedule can be selected as the mode to be used.

Innovative, and somewhat convoluted, but I'll give it a try and let you know if it works.  Thanks.
