Disable inside camera in Disarmed or Home mode

I just installed my Ring security system and have uninstalled my sole (inside) camera. I want the camera completely disabled in all modes except Away. Having it record anytime we walk thorugh the room in which it is installed is a creepy invasion of privacy. I will not purchase another Ring camera until I have this capability. I had this feature with SimpliSafe; thier camera actually had a metal privacy shield that shut over the lens unless the security system was in away mode. I really liked that feature.

Hello poormansw.

What you are requesting is actually already a feature.

You can learn more about it here:

I hope this helps.
