Privacy Mode Question for Aqara G3

Cupertino, July 28, 2023

I am looking into this camera for some in-home monitoring of pets while away as well as some of the nice bonus features it offers...for those who have this or simply know more than me, can you set any sort of automation or trigger to activate privacy mode or do you always have to use Aqara app or manual adjust?

i.e. *if someone is home, activate privacy mode* or *if recognizing X, Y, Z face, activate privacy mode*

I am pretty firmly in the camp of no connected cameras inside the home (baby monitor aside) but something with a physical privacy shutter/mode is appealing assuming I can ensure that when I/my wife are here it is not open as I have no use for it then nor do I care to have it record things I can physically see myself.

For any comments, suggestions of "X camera can do that" I am looking at the aqara because I have a need for some wireless leak sensors (prefer EVE but it wont work in this scenario) and that requires a hub with Aqara, figured if I have to get a hub I may as well get one that can solve some other problems.
