Is there a way to have multiple modes for example I have my system on Schedule Mode for all cameras, but would like one camera to be armed at all times?

 

  Thanks

TURN off Schedule... crate a custom mode for A, then Schedule the new A mode and armed for time wanted.

Only one mode can be active at a time...

 

But you can easily have 1 of 3 cameras active 24/7 by splitting up the cameras you have with a custom(s) mode.

 

exp;

you have cams A,B,C and want A 24/7 but B & C only from 7am to 5pm

Create a custom mode for A by itself, and use the Armed mode for all 3 during 7am-5pm.

then schedule A for all the other times

I tried to create a custom mode for camera A, but as long as the mode selected is Schedule it doesn't work. I can't find a way to have the Schedule mode selected and the camera A mode on when the Schedule mode has the camera disarmed.

Not sure about schedule i dont use it. But you can have custom modes. I have home and away. Away all cameras are armed. Home just the front door. Create a mode and only add the camera you want on all the time. ( add device) you leave others off this mode and you can leave them turned on in case you want to live view. But by not adding them they will not be armed just on.

Do you have to manually change the mode from home to away modes?

Yes. Its not like a schedule. I could never get my schedule to work properly so i gave up. For me its not an issue to turn off but i know some like to just set it and forget it. At worst i get tons of alerts which remimds me i forgot to put it in home mode
