On an LHV / LNR Series DVR / NVR, the Lorex email server can be used to send and receive alerts such as motion detection or other events. To send out motion detection alerts, you must enable the Send Email option on each camera you would like to receive alerts from. Click here to learn how to enable the Send Email option.
To enable email notifications:
In the Mail Select drop-down, select Lorex Mail and configure the following:
Attachment: Include a .jpg image (snapshot) attachment from the camera.
IMPORTANT: You must enable the Snapshot option for motion detection on each camera you would to receive attachments from.
Click Apply to save settings.
RECOMMENDED: If required, set up port forwarding and Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS) on the DVR / NVR. The reason for setting up port forwarding for more information on port forwarding and DDNS is because the default Lorex email server uses DDNS ports.
