I was wondering, are there lens covers available for the wireless cameras? We have a 5 camera setup - 2 indoors and 3 outdoors. Since we  can not deactivate certain cameras ( my wife would like to deactivate the indoor ones at night and leave the outside ones armed), I thought that  covering the lenses of the indoor ones would work but  want something that is easy to use to do so (easy on / easy off). Any suggestions?

sparkybait,

 

There isn't an official NETGEAR branded accessory for what your describe. I would recommend disarming these cameras. This can be done by creating a custom mode. You would want to add rules to the custom mode for motion detection for the desired cameras and activate that mode during the desired time frames.

 

For instructions on how to create a custom mode, see here: How do I create a mode to assign different actions to each camera?

What you need to do is create new modes as James mention.

 

Or you can go into SETTINGS  and turn off the cameras too, tho this is a manual set option
