How to setup Email Alert

Tips: Due to different policies and work mechanism, some email service providers’ SMTP may not well support this. Due to limited resources we cannot test all emails. If your email does not function well as an outgoing email after all settings done (Gmail may not work so well now), we suggest to use tested email as SMTP outgoing email. We tested outlook.com email and Yahoo email work fine as sender. Sendee (receiver) could be any email including Gmail. We will be improving the system.
 1. Enable POP/IMAP in your email. (Many emails default enable this such as outlook and Yahoo email. If you are using them, you can skip this step)
If you are using your email in Outlook, Tablets or phones, your POP/ IMAP should have been enabled. You can skip this step.
Outlook email and Yahoo email has default enabled this, you can skip step1 if you are using these Otherwise, please follow below steps to enable POP/ IMAP of your email. (Use Gmail as sample).
Login your email on browser; go to Settings --> Forwarding and POP/IMAP --> Enable POP and IMAP --> Save Changes.
Note: For some email this setting change may take up to 24 hours to take effect.

a) Click right button on mouse --> System Setup --> Network Setup --> Email, enable Email
b) SMTP Server: Type in your SMTP server address and port. Below are SMTP server and port information for some main emails. If your email service provider is not in here, please Google your email SMTP to find information about it. Although email service suppliers suggested port numbers, we suggest you always try to test default port 25 with none encryption.

Each camera can work as a motion sensor. Go to NVR’s System Setup --> Record Setup --> Video Detection --> Enable the Email Notice of certain channels.
You shall then receive email alert when motion detected.
 
Tips: To avoid frequent repeated email alerts

1. You may set the Interval: Frequency you want receive email. For example, every 10 mins you want to receive email; then you shall set the Interval to 600 seconds. 

2. You may go to System Setup - Record Setup - Video Detection - Area Edit to exclude those unecessary areas; such as a tree out of the window.
