I am using Security Monitor Pro with my Foscams, and it is working great. I have set the cameras for video recording and to send email notification when motion is detected. On one camera in particular I receive a lot of emails because of frequent motion. How can I put a limit on the number of emails received?

In Security Monitor Pro, you can set a time interval between sending email alerts.

On menu bar, click Camera >> Manage Cameras. Select the camera and click Edit Camera. From Actions tab, click on 'Configure' button for email notification action. Select the time interval to wait for the next email to be sent from the drop down list under 'Customize E-mail' section. This will reduce the load on your Inbox.


On motion detection, an email will be sent and then the application will wait for N minutes and will send an Email only if motion is detected after N minutes. N is the number of minutes you have selected to wait after sending email.
