Right now, when setting up modes for cameras, it seems like there are only two options you can control: motion detection, and live view. However, there is a strong use case that a third option should be available, that is to control alerts for the device with modes as well.
When I set the mode to Disabled on my ring alarm, I want to still record videos of motion, but not be alerted to them. Getting alerts for every single motion during the daytime is too much. However, if my package is missing, I want to be able to go back and check the camera for motion events… I know I can disable notifications completely for a particular device, but I would still want to get notifications of motion alerts if the alarm is armed, for example. This seems like a pretty fundamental request, and I hope it makes it into a new update soon.
