Using geofencing and other modes

I have my two cameras set up with geofencing which seems to be working although I don't always get the alert that says geofencing is "now in home or away" mode.
I would ALSO like my outside entryway camera to come on at 10pm and off at 5am. each day. I assume this would be done through scheduling.
I don't seem to have any luck setting up a mode or rule, whatever I set for one camera does the same to the other. I select a particular camera to set a mode and it asks which camera I want to use. Any advice would be helpful.

You have to get down the 'modes' and how they work.....

You have 2 cameras, the default is ARMED ( all on ) and DISARMED ( all off )

**( schedule while in modes is just a timer to turn on/off the above or Custom modes you create )

With 2 cams your modes can be

A&B ( default )

A on

B on


Throw in a couple rules... any camera NOT on in the current Mode is OFF and a new mode overides the previous mode

( also when creating a custom mode " add a mode" to add a second or third camera, add the first one, save , then go back and edit for the next )


Geofence brings in a another whole concept, but in the end you PICK which Mode you want for HOME OR AWAY

And, Yes... you can schedule the front cam to be on at night ( done in schedule first and then schedule is used as HOME in goefence ) or both ON (armed) as your geofence away mode


One other note, any time a schedule goes thru midnight, it must be broke into two parts

In you case it would be 10pm to 1159pm and next day 12 midnight to 5am
