Temporarily disable outdoor cameras

I have several outdoor cameras in my backyard. Sometimes I just want to go out and enjoy the backyard late at night to stare at the stars, in peace, without the device lights turning on every few seconds and getting a motion alert on my phone. Is there a quick way to disable them for X minutes on all devices? Right now, I have to turn off the light setting, and then motion one-by-one for each camera. And then reverse it all before I go back inside.

Yes this is imperative that I am able to disable a camera. We have three teenage daughters in college that are logged in to our system and an empty nest at home with a hot tub. I pull the pull on that camera now.

Re: Temporarily disable outdoor cameras

I posted this a long time ago... They have a feature to support this now called Modes. You basically have three modes, and you can assign which camera is enabled or disabled for each mode.
