Email Notifications

Description

This section will show you how to setup email notifications using a 3rd party SMTP server.


Please note system will not send out the email immediately when the alarm occurs. When the alarm, motion detection or the abnormity event activates the email, system sends out the email according to the interval you specified here. This function is very useful when there are too many emails activated by the abnormity events, which may result in heavy load for the email server.

Common SMTP Settings

Email Server SMTP Server: Port: User Name: Password: Receiver: Sender: Attachment: Encrypt Type:
Gmail smtp.gmail.com 465 Your_Email@gmail.com Your_Email_Password (Email address to receive email notification) Your_Email@gmail.com Checked SSL
Yahoo smtp.mail.yahoo.com 465 Your_Email@yahoo.com Your_Email_Password (Email address to receive email notification) Your_Email@yahoo.com Checked SSL

Additional Gmail Settings

Please make sure your gmail settings on the temporary account are set to Allow less secure apps is set to ON:

1. Log into Gmail account and select the icon in the top right corner.
