Schedule vs arming

I’m a new user and just have a question about the functionality. So I set up a schedule for my cameras, but wasn’t sure if I still have to select to arm my system, or if it does it itself based on the schedule? When I was testing them i selected ‘arm’ and it began recording video even though it was outside of its scheduled time which made me pose the question of whether ‘arm’ turns the system on 24/7 or if its supposed to turn on the schedule?

If you set a schedule it will arm/disarm based on the times you set. You can also manually arm the system outside of your set schedule.
