Record video if door sensor triggered ONLY in specific modes?

Trying to figure out how I can get my Eufy cameras (I’m using the outdoor 2C cameras indoors) to record if the front door contact sensor triggers but only in certain modes.

Essentially I’m trying to create a “night mode” where the perimeter security is armed (door sensors) but not motion sensors or cameras. But I do want the cameras to record if the door sensor triggers.

I know I can do this with Automations but then it’s active for every single mode and every time the door sensor is triggered which is not what I want.

Any ideas?


@Twist This would be a great feature for Eufy to add somehow in the future. Using automations separately as timed events, mode specific, scheduled, etc.

As far as I know, it could only be done through automation which like you said, would stay on at all times, regardless of the mode. Currently, you’d have to turn on/off each time to achieve what you’re trying to do. I’d like to hear if anyone else is able to figure out how this can be done under the current app version.
