Default Constant power from the cigarette lighter. 2000 Yukon XL

Just bought a dash cam that plugs into my power outlets on the dash. It's a 2000 Yukon XL. All three are constantly hot. I don't want my dash cam to constantly record even when I'm not in the vehicle, and don't want to unplug every time I get out of the truck. Is there anything I can to do change this constant power so I don't have to unplug everytime i get out?

Swapping the power supply line with one that is not constantly hot. Personally, rather that do that I would just shut the camera off or unplug it. I have an accessory that plugs into the 12V power outlet that is hot all the time and I just pull it out of the socket enough to disconnect it but it is still in the socket so it doesn't take much at all to push it in to turn the accessory on.
