Need Help a Setting Up Arlo Cameras

I need help setting up my Arlo cameras. I have 2 sets of cameras, one monitoring the exterior of my house, the other the interior.

I would like the exterior cameras to alert and record 24/7, but I only want the interior cameras to alert and record when only SMH is armed. And I would like to achieve this without manually changing modes

I can do one or the other but not both. I figure the easiest way to setup the exterior cameras is controlling them exclusively from Arlo. However, I can’t seem to figure out what rules are needed for the interior cameras in that Arlo mode. If I include them, I must set at least alert or record; I don’t have the option to do neither. If I exclude the interior ones from the Arlo mode, then it seems I cannot arm them via SmartThings.

My fallback is to set the interior ones to record but not alert while we ar at home, so At least we wouldn’t get bothered with the constant alerts. But there got to be a better way.

My requirements shouldn’t be that extraordinary, so I’m wondering if (actually, more like hoping) experts here have setup something similar and can share their experience.

Thanks in advance.

Nevermind. I just realize you can turn an Arlo camera on and off like a switch. Mystery solved.
