Can you turn off the camera when home?

I understand you can turn off motion and sound detection which will stop the recording of events when home. But I see that the live stream is still working.

 

Is it possible to turn off the camera altogether?

 

Thank you.

 

ps. where did that frownie face avatar come from?

In the latest beta, you can turn off cameras completely. However, it is not available via IFTTT, at least not yet.

Thanks for your response. I don’t know what “IFTTT” is.

Would be pleased to test that portion if you need a beta tester. I prefer the camera not to be live streaming continuously, but rather only when it is appropriate.

Really love the camera and look forward to learning more about all the features. The Youtube videos are terrific.

If you want it really, really disconnected, the only way is to unplug it. Even in the “off” mode, it is still listening for the “on” signal to turn back on. And when it’s on, it’s not actually streaming anywhere unless you connect to it for live stream.

If you want to “unplug” it remotely, you could use an internet controlled switch, which you can get nowadays for around $8 each.

Terrific. I don’t see the app listed on the App update page? I checked and I am on the previous version. When and how can I get the new version for my iPhone? Do I need to totally delete the previous version and start from scratch?

Thanks for checking up on this for me.
