With IFTTT compatibility lacking, I think an easy access way of turning the cameras on and off (or even, the PIR motion sensor on and off) would you great. Ultimately, im thinking along the lines of a Phone homescreen wigdet (a button or a slider.
To build out the scenario why i think this is useful:
I use the cameras inside the house in higher-up locations where they cannot be reached. The huge benefit of these cameras (I am using the Argus Pro) is that even if someone cuts the electricity (and/or wifi), the will still continue to record.
However, i also don't want the camera recording/alerting me whenever I, or a family member move around the house and i dont want to have to go into the app each time and turn off the motion detection for each camera separately.
So the feature request is:
- Create a scene which involved multiple cameras (you can already do this i think)
- Create a homescreen widget for that scene which enables you to turn all cameras on/off at the same time
The other solution here is geofencing, but that is probably way more complicated...
