Have cameras go online even when I'm at home using Geofencing. How?

Hi,

Camera in geofencing mode is a nice feature but is there an option for what I still looking after:

for example Some cams go off or on when I am there or not. But at Night when I am there I also want a camera online which is normaly not reporting in geofencing mode.

Is there a duel option geo including Some time modus to setup this. This is really something I miss.

Hi @Ceesvdbrink,

 

If you are wanting your cameras to be armed at night, you can try using "Schedule" to choose when it should be armed during the night so when you're at home (Home Mode on Geofencing settings), you can select "Schedule".

Hi,

I know the schedule option but this is with 3 or more cams not an option for my problem.

I want to be in home mode with Cams 1 and 2 offline but at time say 23:30 to be online with cam 3 and still keep cams 1 &2 offline

I really look for an option like this

You should try using "Custom Modes" as an option to have more than three cameras.

 

Try to see if the instructions below helps you or gives you a better idea:

1. Create first custom mode for Cams 1 and 2

2. Create second custom mode for Cam 3

3. Edit Schedule and choose the time when you want your Cam 3 to be armed by choosing "Second Custom Mode" on the Edit Mode to be armed and choose the start time and stop time (do know Stop Time is till 11:59 PM).

4. Go to Geofencing and choose "Home Mode" as "Schedule"

 

Hopefully this gives a better idea of how to have some of your cameras go online even when you're at home via Geofencing. Let me know if you need clarification.
