Restricted access based on a certain Time of the day

edited June 17 in Camera & App

It would be nice to have the ability to set up restricted for a certain period of time where the user can view the camera and disable access during off periods. Would be helpful if needed to give access to caretakers.

    I was thinking this, too! In the interim, what do users do to give their nanny access during daytime hours? Is there a setting on the app? A separate piece of equipment? We just bought the Nanit after not loving the Motorola halo, but the halo at least had a separate monitor. Please help! :)

    Hi @Jamie ! There's actually a few options:

    1. You can enable/disable access through settings for specific users. You'll need to add your nanny with a separate account, and then set her as a "viewer". Once she's a viewer you'll have an option to enable and disable access manually.
    2. If you have an old phone, iPad or other tablet laying around you can use that as a dedicated monitor screen that she can use only when she's at your home.
  • @FitMommyT Thank you for sharing your feedback here! We have heard this request before and we will be sure to note this as we continue to improve the product in the future!

  • Echoing the requests for time settings for the Viewer profiles!! This would be huge to be able to use for a caretaker.

  • It is always helpful to hear how beneficial features would be! Hopefully, I will have more information to share soon on this feature request.
