I am happy with my initial 750i master system so far and am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the rest of my add on cameras.
We are using our system primarily to monitor in home child care and would like the option to black out or disable certain cameras without going through the house and unplugging them, etc.
Is there some way to do this via the commander?
I've tried removing the camera from one computer's commander log in, but the camera is still streaming live video when i sign in via the other commander pc in the house or from my mobile commander log in.
We'd like to try to limit the amount of exposure to potential eavesdroppers.

I know you can "remove" a camera when you click on the top right cornor of the image in the commander, but I think it just might be more easy to have a user name and password for your PC and log off when your walk way for an extented amount of time. Thus no one can access the PC let alone the camera feeds. Might save you some time and hassle.

I'm not sure if you have anything to worry about, Make sure you have a good firewall on your network and keep it locked up. I don't think you have to worry about people hacking into your network to "watch" your security camera feeds.

You need to keep in mind that the whole idea of the security system is to see and record any movement that happens in the area that the camera is observing. It is not designed to be turned off or blacked out easily. The only way to do what you are wanting to do is unplug it or remove the camera.
If your main concern is someone tapping into the video then your focus should be on securing your Home Network. If they cannot get on your network then you do not have to worry about an imposter tapping into your cameras.

ty for verifying that this cannot be done.
home network security is the problem. With kids and a nanny, there are plenty of ways my network can be compromised. That was why I was interested in this.
It would also be nice to fart and scratch my **bleep** without worrying about my wife watching me = )
Now i have to do that off screen I guess. The ppl over at CNET apparently had the same problem having that "big brother" feeling.
