No , I prob just clicked on the wrong one... here you go.

 

 

As mentioned, you need a custom mode called say ; outside, for just the outside camera ... the default you have are Armed ( all on ) and Disarmed ( off)

 

Other tips that may help;

With MODES, any camera NOT in the active mode is OFF

Only ONE mode can run at a time

When using schedule, Modes do not go thru midnight so split time into two parts ,  up to 1159pm and start agin at 1200midnight on next day

Thank you for your reply and link to my question.

 

What I want is to be able to do is to activate the motion detector on only one of the four cameras when needed, unless I have not followed the info correctly the link advises on setting each camera for alerts etc. and not for solo activation.

 

Please correct me if I am wrong.

 

Thank you.
