I received the Modes feature last night, and it appears that Modes is not a system wide setting, which leads to huge hassle (and privacy nightmare) if you have multiple users or devices with the app logged in. If you turn on Modes and have it disable your indoor camera when your alarm is in disarm mode, that setting DOES NOT transfer to any other users or devices. Problem - That means the camera is still recording clips and sending notifications to all other devices unless you repeat the same steps on ALL devices and ALL users.
This also means, the software is simply disabling the app from sending notifications or viewing live, but does not actually turn off the camera or prevent streaming to the cloud. I’d consider this a big privacy miss, since I don’t want my indoor cameras active while I’m home or Ring Alarm is in disarm. At any point any of the users could need to reinstall apps or change a setting on their phone and start triggering recordings again, uploading a massive number of clips to the cloud.
Bad deal Ring, make these Modes system wide or they’re useless. Also, the Modes needs to actually disable indoor cameras, not just prevent the apps from viewing the still active stream.
