I am trying to puzzle my way through the configurations in the Zmodo app and the user.zmoto.com website.
As I understand it in the app I can switch between Away, Home and Sleep modes or to schedule the occurence of these modes by day of the week and time of day. Also the app lets you decide whether notifications are on or off for each mode. I haven't bothered with a schedule for the moment and only have notifications turn on for the Away mode.
At the website there is no mention of the Away, Home and Sleep modes. In the setup menu for the NVR there are icons for Notifications On/Off, Microphone On/Off, Notification Setting and Camera Schedule.
How does the website's Notifications On/Off interact with the app's Notifications On/Off for each mode? Does one take prededence over the other?
In the website's Notification Setting there is s switch at the top and a schedule below. Does the switch turn notifications on or off or does it turn the schedule that follows it on or off? In either case how does that setting interact with the apps setting?
Similarly on the website the Camera Setting has a switch at the top and a schedule below. Does the switch turn the camera on or off or does it turn the schedule on or off?
I ask this because I would like to achieve the following and I would appreciate some guidance. I would like to simply use the app to choose the Home or Away modes.In the Home mode I would like the cameras and the notifications to be off. In the Away mode I would like the cameras to be on and the notifications to be on. I don't require any day of the week or time of day scheduling for anything.
Finally, when the cameras are off are they really off - i.e. not streaming anywhere? I ask this because I have noticed that if I turn on the NVR, then turn on the app, then turn off the NVR the cameras continue to stream a live feed to the app (not what I expected). I don't want the cameras streaming to the internet and eating away at my monthly data limit except when in Away mode.
Thank you for any clarity you can bring.
