Let $F$ be a totally real field and $\mathbf{\rho} = (\rho_{\lambda})_{\lambda}$ be a compatible system of two dimensional $\lambda$-adic representations of the Galois group of $F$. We assume that $\mathbf{\rho}$ has a residually modular $\lambda$-adic realization for some $\lambda$. In this paper, we consider local behaviors of modular deformations of $\lambda$-adic realizations of $\mathbf{\rho}$ at unramified primes. In order to control local deformations at specified unramified primes, we construct certain Hecke modules. Applying Kisin's Taylor-Wiles system, we obtain an $R = T$ type result supplemented with local conditions at specified unramified primes. As a consequence, we shall show a potential rigidity of some modular deformations of infinitely many $\lambda$-adic realizations of $\mathbf{\rho}$.
