Privacy Mode

Is there a way to turn the cameras off (a privacy mode), while we have visitors in our home.?

Probably the easiest way is to create a shortcut with an action for each camera to turn it off. Another complimentary shortcut could be created to turn them back on.

Let me know if you need help creating the shortcuts.

That would be helpful, if you don’t mind.

If you have a Google Home, or google Assistant then you could also create a “routine” where it turns off the camera when you say something like “Hey Google, I have company”

Just remember - As long as a V2 or Pan cam is powered it is “on”.

True enough. To be very sure simply remove the power supply cable from each camera.

Which would be a pain to do for many of my cams.
BUT WAIT!! I’ll just add WyzePlugs so I can turn them off remotely. :slight_smile:
