I don't think so but I thought I would ask this question. Base station vmb3000. If I turn off base station will the camera save battery power? I guess the only way to save battery power is to turn off the cameras and or adjust their useage. Your thoughts welcome. Thank you

unless i'm mistaken, if you turn off base station, you'll use more battery power because the cams will continuously try to contact the base station without success.

Correct!  Use the Disarmed mode or the individual On/Off switches per camera in Settings.
