Temporary Shut Off of Camera and Doorbell Motion Detection

I would like to be able to open the app, and chose a 15, 30, or 60 minute time frame to disable motion sensors.

When my lawn service comes, I can get 18-25 notifications in an hour. I would like to be able to simply choose an amount of time that the motion sensors are disabled without having to remember to turn them back on.

Here's what it looks like on my Do Not Disturb app.
There is a NOW feature that will shut off my phone for preset amounts of time and even adds them up if you click multiple times. EG: I click the 15 min 3 times and it shuts my phone off for 45 minutes.

Snooze Notification for Camera Motion

I agree! I would like a simple way to go into the app or even the keypad, not so many clicks as it stands now, to disable the camera/s so I don't wear down the batteries so fast. I've tweaked settings numerous times to extend the battery and all I end up doing is negating the point of having the camera at all as it won't record diddly. We're retired and out in the yard lots during the day which helps to drain the battery pretty quickly. I may end up getting plug power.

Would be a great idea for outdoor camera , when entertaining or just relaxing on patio. Constant notifications are absolutely annoying!

This is an absolute must!  Please add this feature.  I get constant notifications when I am doing yard work or relaxing in the garden and there should be an easy way to silence it, or have an “I’m outside” mode added.

100% necessary.  SimpliSafe's competition makes this easy with schedules. Would be nice to be able to schedule motion sensing on individual cameras... for example I would like to turn off all cameras motion sensing during the day except for the front door so I know when I get packages delivered, or someone is knocking.
