I know this is a 2+ year old post, but thought I would add my two cents anyhow, since nothing seems to have happened in response to SJMARTY’s OP.
Just blew $350 on a five-cam set assuming that, of course, there would be such a basic option as scheduling snapshots.
Oops!.. $350 down the toilet…
I was fixated on the idea of triggering a snapshot every N minutes, but somebody elses’ suggestion that snapshots be updated each time somebody opens the Android app also makes sense for my use case - as long as it is done asynchronously (i.e. the user can use the app while the snapshots are updating).
I looked into creating my own script via IFTTT, but IFTTT seems to be a work in progress with almost no functionality - certainly no time-related triggers or snapshot-related actions.
Or am I missing something?
My Use Case:
Allow family members to check up on The Old People and verify, for instance, that nobody is laying on the floor at the bottom of a staircase…preseumably to allow prompt removal of the body so it doesn’t stink the place up and diminish resale value… -)
In my use case, motion triggering would be turned off and having to supply external power would not be a deal breaker.
