Some providers are concerned about patients going to their waiting room whenever they want or during off hours. To manage this situation, there are a few options:

Appear offline
If you are not logged into your account, you will appear offline. This is often enough to direct your patient away. 

Edit waiting room
You can edit your waiting room with a message indicating the hours you are available and what the patient should do if the you are not available. 

Set passcode
Each time you go away you can set room passcode and not share the code. Just be sure to turn off the passcode when you come back online so you patient can check in.
