How to set up email notifications on my Camius digital or network video recorder?
Email alerts are available for Camius IP cameras, DVRs, and NVR systems to notify you in real-time of motion, sound, and PIR detection events. Furthermore, Camius security camera systems send email alerts when your recorder’s hard drive has an error or when the camera is disconnected.
Also, you can set up your system to send emails triggered by AI events like human and vehicle, perimeter intrusion or line crossing detection, and cross counting.
Here are the steps to configure IP cameras and Security Recorders email settings:
On the NVR or DVR interface, move the mouse cursor to the bottom left, click the main menu button, and then click Setup.
Setting up Email is under Setup >> Network; if you have your own Email server, use the correct port, encryption, server, and credentials.
You can also use Google’s Gmail SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com , Encryption set to TLS, with port: 587.
On your sending Gmail account page, activate 2-step verification, and then on the same Security page, create a new App Password, and choose custom for the Name. You can name it something like DVR.
Use this App Password instead of the Gmail password on your recorder’s Setup >> Network >> Email.
Email scheduling is enabled by default which you can modify based on your requirement.
