The Messaging and Messaging 2 dialogs allow defining two different sets of messaging paths to be used when different alarms occur.
In this dialog, you set up the camera to only send an e-mail when the video motion sensor detects a movement, but not when the PIR sensor reports an event, for example. See also: Example for Using Event Control.
|Enable Message Profile
Using this option, you can (temporarily) deactivate the entire message profile. If a message profile is deactivated, your modifications remain saved.
|Time Table Profile
In order to activate the messages defined in this dialog in a time-controlled manner, you need to select a Time Table Profile. Make sure the message profile is set to Enable.
|Messaging Dead Time
|No further message will be started during the time set in this parameter.
You can restrict the number of events upon which the camera should start a new message by highlighting only the desired events in the list. If this is the case, the messages described hereafter are performed for the highlighted events only.
Second File Transfer (FT2)
(only in Messaging 2!)
The Actions dialog allows setting another FTP transmission (FT).
|Sound on Event (SD)/(SD2)
In case of an alarm, the camera can play an audio file. Set the parameters for Play List and order in which the files are played.
Open the Manage Audio Messages dialog in order to create or delete your own voice messages or to select one of the pre-recorded audio files.
For additional information on this option, see the Manage Audio Messages help page.
|E-mail Action (EM)/(EM2)
In case of an alarm, the camera can send notifications via e-mail.
Create at least one profile in the E-Mail Profiles dialog so you can select it here.
Select event image to attach the event image to the e-mail. Selecting profile (you only will be able to do so if you have clicked on More before) will use the settings defined in the e-mail profile.
For additional information on this option, see the E-Mail Profiles help page.
|Phone Call-Out (CL)/(CL2)
In case of an alarm, the camera can send voice messages via telephone.
You can select any profile as a destination that you have defined in the Phone Profiles dialog.
To create a phone profile do the following:
|IP Notify (IP)/(IP2)
In case of an alarm, the camera can send a network message to another computer's TCP port.
Select one of the profiles that you have created in the IP Notify Profiles dialog.
For additional information on this option, see the IP Notify Profiles help page.
|Example for Using Event Control
Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the next reboot of the camera.
Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
