Hi

 

(yes a bit of a strange ask for security cams) 

 

I'd like to be able to switch off a camera during scheduled times. Like completely switch it off. So you cannot even log into it online and check the feed. 

 

 

 

The cameras are shared with other family members, and I know as the account owner I can disable access to cams. But I'd like to do this automatically and at scheduled times. 

 

 

 

Is this possible?

 

 

Cheers 🙂

Looks like one may sometimes have to turn into a coat hanger 🙂

I put one cam  on a small camera tripod, about $5... When home it faces the wall, when we go out, we got into the habit of turning it into the room.

 

Solves any possible problem of someone looking at that cam.... easiest solution i had at the time..... or you could use a sock !  🙂

You can deactivate it under settings. You can do it with one of your cameras or all. I have one camera with friends. My others are all private. I activate the friends camera during certain hours and deactivate it during others. It shows as deactivated in your feed and anyone else's feed it won't show at all.
