We used to say Alfred is an app that is limited by the old phones it runs on. While that will always be true, we are constantly listening to Superhero feedback and trying to challenge the limits!
This time we took on the concept of switching the Camera device on/off from the Viewer and developed a Remote Switch!
Remote Switch is a great data/energy-saving mechanism that’s perfect for people who want to periodically check on their pets/kids/house. However, please note that if your Camera Phone has been disabled by the switch, Motion Detection won’t work.
Here is how it works:
Tap on the wheel on each Camera thumbnail:
Slide the switch from “Enabled” to “Disabled:”
You will see this icon as well as “This Camera is turned off” from your Viewer:
Enable the Camera anytime you want by tapping on the thumbnail:
For Superheroes in the Trust Circle, please remember only the owner of the Camera can disable/enable the Camera.
Again, we would like to remind you NOT to press the power key or home key now that Alfred offers yet another great energy-saving option!
