Email Alerts
The system can notify you when it detects motion from any camera by
sending you an email alert. The email alert contains information such as the time that motion was detected and by which camera. In order to enable the Email Alert function, you must enter both incoming and
outgoing email addresses.
We strongly recommend you use Gmail to set up as the outgoing email server.
The outgoing mail server (SMTP server) is responsible for sending out
the email notification to tell users when the system detects motion from
any camera (Motion Detection must be activated). The incoming mail
server (Email To) receives the email notification sent from the SMTP
server. The user must be able to receive email on a Windows PC or on
mobile devices (such as an iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone or
tablet) to receive e-mail alerts from the system. When you receive an
email alert, you can view live video from your Windows PC, an iPhone,
iPad, Android smartphone or Andriod tablet through apps. Apps are
available through the iTunes App store or the Android Market.

Alarm Inputs:
Alarm inputs are switches that activate when a door, window, cabinet etc. is opened or accessed.
For example, you might want to only have the
camera record when someone opens a tool cabinet
or when a door opens vs. recording when motion
occurs around those areas. There may be people
moving by those areas frequently but you are only
concerned about when those areas are accessed.
This saves storage space and makes it easier to
find an event that was recorded.
