Lorex provides email services to customers who have NVR systems connected to the Internet. If issues arise using the default Lorex email server, we recommend switching to a third-party email server such as Gmail or Yahoo! If you wish to set up a third-party email account with your NVR, you will need to enable Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) in your account.
To configure email alerts:
Right-click on the Live View, and then click Menu.
Click Configuration and then click Network.
Click the Email tab.
In the Email drop-down, select Enable to use a custom email server.
Configure the following:
Click Apply to save settings.
Click Test to send a test email.
IMPORTANT: Before the NVR will send out email alerts for motion detection, you must enable the Send Email action for each camera.
Some third-party email providers such as Gmail will require an update to email settings to receive these alerts.
To update Gmail settings to receive motion alerts:
In the Email / SMTP window on your NVR, click Test to send a test email.
REMINDER: It can take a few minutes for the email to arrive. Be sure to check your junk / spam folders.
