Does anyone know of a way to archive pictures from vera cams if the alarm has been tripped?

I assume that you mean "when a partition is in the armed state".  Alarm panels don't have any state, only the partitions.

No, there isn't, not without programming.  It would be good if the partition service was known to Vera's camera handler, but they're not.

I mean when the alarm has been breached. The siren is sounding. This is the only time that I would want to record pictures. They would be used to identify the crooks! But I guess that still means programming. I guess I will have to learn yet another language.
