Setting Up Email Alerts 

We generally don't recommend emails alerts as they can quickly fill up your mailbox storage. If you wish to try it for security reasons, we recommend setting up a secondary email to give to the app. Email alerts will still be sent to your chosen personal email account but the app will only have details to the outlook account you will create.

Step 1


Make an outlook account 

Step 2



Head to settings and proceed to Alarm management and notifications.

Enable alarm capture sent to Email then click configure Email.

Fill in the following:

SMTP Server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
Server Port: 587
Encrypt Type: STARTTLS
Authentication: Enabled
User Name: (email address for outlook account created in Step 1)
Password: (password for outlook account created in Step1) 
Send To: (your personal email address you wish the email alert to be sent to)
Sender: (email address for outlook account created in Step1)
Subject: (The subject line of the email, example "Farmstream Camera Notification")


Make sure you press Apply or this won't be saved.

NOTE: pressing Test will sometimes return a failed result despite it being correctly setup
