Set camera to alert me to motion even when system is "off"

Is there a way to set a camera to alert me when it detects motion, even when the system is set to "off"?

Specifically, when I'm in my home office, I want to know if/when one of my mischievous dogs ventures into a certain room. So I won't have the system armed. I just want an alert when Fido wanders where he's not supposed to be.

Any way to do this?

Thanks.

Yes, but it is not trivial.  What you need to do is add a standard motion sensor covering the camera field of view, and set it to "secret alert".

Can't you just set the shutter to open? My cameras in the garden alert me when there's motion and alarm is off.
