Most manufacturers have no idea their devices might one day become security cameras. They think that since you press the power key, you are putting your phone to sleep mode or standby mode. Either way, you are not using the phone at that moment, so the phone tries to save some battery by shutting down the cameras and reducing WiFi reception.
In other words, pressing the power key may put your Camera Unit to sleep and it won’t be able to provide security anymore, so don’t!
What about the home key? If you press the home key, you exit the app. Alfred doesn’t work in the background. By exiting the app, Alfred cannot stay connected and receive commands from the Viewer device.
Alfred dims the display in a minute after your setup is complete as an attempt to save power, so there is no need to press the power key or home key.
