Is there a way to set up seperate commands for each camera? Meaning I would like the camera in the Garage to always be on and monitoring motion to record. But the one in my main room, I want it to only record motion when it is armed. Is this possible to do? Thank you

Yes... you need to create two custom Modes

One with Both cameras  ( or you already have a Default for all on ; ARMED, if only 2 cameras )

And the Second Mode with the Garage camera only

 

Run #1 when you want the main room on ( and so will be the garage be on too )

Run #2 when you don't need the main room

So what I actually have is 6 camera's...there are 2 I want to record motion all the time, and the other 4 to only record when Armed or on a Schedule... so in this case, I would i do this? I really appriciate your help with this.

As mentioned, make a two Custom modes ( call them sometihing so you know what they do like ;  Inside / Outside

#1 with 2 cameras that are on all the time

#2 with the other 4 cams

 

You already have ARMED ( all on ) and DISARMED ( all off )

 

Use Mode 1 manually  to arm the 2 cameras as you want them on all the time ( just leave armed )

Use Mode 2 manually or via schedule when you want the 4 cams armed ( this will shut off mode 1 )

Use ARMED manually or shedule when you want all your cameras armed

 

tips;

Only ONE mode can run at a time

Any cam NOT in the active mode will be off

when you first create a new custom mode you add ONE camera and save it, to add the 2nd,3rd... go back and edit the same mode following the same steps.
