I would like the ability to mute notifications on some cameras based on a schedule.

For instance. I have a camera in my backyard. I want to record video when people are detected in my backyard however…

During the day I would prefer not to receive notifications. At night I do.

At the moment I have my camera setup not to record the backyard in the day. It’s a bit counter intuitive because we back onto a golf course and I would like to know if any golfers / anyone does enter via my back gate during the day.

I think some more flexibility on notifications would help a lot!

Thanks

You can already do this. Create a "Daytime" mode that includes the backyard camera.  Set the rule for that camera so that it records, but does not send any notifications.  https://kb.arlo.com/42/What-are-modes-and-rules-and-how-does-Arlo-use-them

 

Then create a schedule that uses the Daytime mode when you want recordings but no notifications.

 

Note you can't use this approach to supress people notifications while sending other classifications - it only applies if you want to supress all notifications.
