First off, change your password and remove them from any guest accounts.

Otherwise, you could use geofencing to do this. You need to set that up with a mobile device. It's in the Mode tab along with your other modes.

Thanks JGuerdat but I'm a newbee - are you able to offer a little more detail please? My family needs access to all the Armed functions, but I just dont want any of us checking the live feed when others are at home. That is, when Geofence has disarmed the Alerts.  Insteasd of just disabling Alerts, I'd like the Home mode to set the camera to Off. If you can give step by step sugggesrions, that would be very useful and I'm sure others will benefit too, as I have heard other camera users have similar concerns about the coninual live feed feature.  thaks again.

You can't use GF to turn the cameras off but you can disarm them so no recordings are made. Unfortunately, that allows others to be able to use live view. Perhaps removing the additional privileges in Grant Access would be sufficient. In the end, I think you need to redefine who needs what access.
