Outdoor Camera Push Notifications

I think the settings for push notifications for the outdoor camera need to be improved. Currently, you only have a choice of receiving or receiving the notifications regardless of system status. There should be an ability to choose whether to receive these notifications based on status (Off, Home, Away).

Anyone else?

I agree 100%.  I installed my camera a few days ago and immediately had the same thought.

Agree that this should be an option. There's no need for my camera to be wasting battery life recording notifications if I'm in the back doing yard work all day.

Agreed. Constant notifications when I’m working in the field of view of the camera is ridiculous and this needs to be addressed.

Yes. My only complaint. Firmware should allow this to be turned off in off mode.

100% agree. It’s a battery drain and a constant workday interruption.

I’m having this problem also, my only complaint with the SimpliSafe system.

Add my vote for individual camera notification customizations. My old ADT Pulse system used to allow you to create conditions under which you would record and/or be notified (independent of alarm arm status). At minimum, it would be helpful to be able to assign a scene (e.g. Home or Away; again ideally independent of alarm status) and define time frames in which you'd like to be notified. The scene would allow you to switch between conditions without having to change the programming. 

I have Simplisafe (full perimeter, motion, cameras) in one of the buildings on my property and still have ADT in the other (still deciding which way to go if I consolidate). I like some features of both, and have yet to decide if I want them both buildings on one or the other. But, since I currently might have the Simplisafe system armed and still be working around the house, it would be nice not to get an alert for every motion detection even when it is armed. 

Please Simplisafe, enable us to control our notification volume by adding this feature. Thanks!
