Able to set start and end time when Notification of Wyze Cam detections is active

With ability to set time limits when Notifications of wyzeCam detections will be sent:

Wyse App users will hear much fewer unnecessary notifications.

Example: We set up our detection zone so we hear alerts when our Altzheimer parent wakes up at night. Currently, notifications ring all day long even though we only need the alerting notifications at night.

Take this one step further. If we can set time limits during which detection works, we will get the same result of fewer notifications.

However, this feature creates huge savings for Wyze. Specifically, Wyze Lab will experience huge savings and cost burden on cloud space for keeping only those detected WyzeCam events that the consumer desires. No more keeping wasteful undesired video events.
