how to setup email notification with picture from camera
« on: January 10, 2019, 07:47:23 am »
hi.  may i seek help from experienced users / admin on how to setup email notifications with picture from camera.

i tried googling it, but only found vera alerts that seems to require another android app installation.  i was hoping if the standard notification will work since it will be sent via email from the vera device

AFAIK you can?t. I stopped using Vera to control my cameras and wrote my own solution. I can suggest to take a look at your nvr, since many of them are able to do what you?re asking for.
Vera Edge EU, Fibaro FGRM 222 (14), Fibaro FGS 223 (26), Fibaro FGS 222 (6), Fibaro UBS (2), Fibaro+N Plug (3), NeoCoolCam Door Sensor (3), PIR (2) & Plugs (2), Nest (3), Home Server running my own integrations, Harmony Hub, OpenSprinkler, Personal Weather Station, Sonoff TH & more

While not a built-in solution, you can do just that with VeraAlerts.

It sends you a personalized notification + screenshot on an app like Pushover, or Pushbullet.

Another option is to take a picture and send it as mms to your phone. You would get a text with the picture.

I?m with Verizon so it would be phonenumber@vtext. com

When my Vera was up and running that?s they way I was doing it.
