Camera Messages


Use the Messaging dialog to define the messages should be sent when an alarm occurs.

In this dialog, you set up the camera to only send an email 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.

Note: Click on the More button to display all options of the dialog.

Messaging Dead Time

The messaging dead time defines a period of time (0 - 3600 sec) after an alarm message during which no further alarm messages are triggered.

Event Selection

Highlight the events that are supposed to trigger a message. The factory setting All triggers the messages defined below for all events.

Note: This selection does not affect image storage in the camera's internal storage or on a file server.

Message Description

Sound on Event (SD) In case of an alarm, the camera can play an audio file.
Note: This feature is not available for Basic cameras.

Open the Manage Voice Messages dialog in order to create or delete your own voice messages or to select one of the pre-recorded audio files.
E-mail Action (EM) In case of an alarm, the camera can send notifications via email.
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 email. Selecting profile (you only will be able to do so when you have clicked on More before) will use the settings defined in the email profile.
Second E-mail (EM2) Select a second email profile to send the notification to.
ISDN Call Action (CL): 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 ISDN Dial-Out Profiles dialog.
Note: This feature is not available for Basic cameras.

To create a profile for the ISDN voice notification, proceed as follows: A list with all available profiles is displayed.
IP Notify (IP) In case of an alarm, the camera can send a network message to another computer's TCP port.
Note: This feature is not available for Basic cameras.

To enable sending network messages, do the following:
  • In the Messaging dialog, check the IP Notify (IP) option.
  • Enter the IP address and the port (separated by a colon) to which the camera is supposed to send the network message. (Example:
    • Use commas to separate multiple addresses to which the message is to be sent.
    • It is also possible to use symbolic names. In order to do so, you need to enter a DNS server in the Ethernet Interface dialog.
  • Enter the message text. You can either enter freeform text and/or use predefined variables.
    For a complete list of variables, see the Variables help topic.
Note: When using a firewall, you can define a different send port for your camera. In order to do this, go to the Messaging dialog and click on the More button. Next, enter the port of your choice in the IP Notify (IP) section.
The factory default setting for the send port is 0 (automatic).
