I have the 8 channel ultimate mini series D1 DVR.  I am working on a home automation install and would like to be able to pull a link or jpg image from the DVR for an email/txt message.  For instance, a motion sensor is activated and the home automation system sends a text message to a client that motion was detected and a jpg from the camera feed is included.  I have done this with other DVR systems but can't find a way to do it with this one.  Any ideas?

On the Ultimate Mini DVR there are alarm inputs and outputs. The alarm inputs can be used to trigger a specific camera or set of cameras to record and/or take snapshots.  You can also dictate that when this occurs to send an email to the owner from one or multiple cameras.  I think this will suit your needs as long as the system you are using for automation/alarm can send a signal to the dvr.  The 8 channel Ultimate Mini has 8 different alarm inputs so multiple motion detectors or door contacts can trigger these actions.

Absolutely!  All of the recorders (DVRs and NVRs) on sale at will allow you to setup email notifications on several different kinds of alerts and alarms.  I'm attaching a link to the help video on how to set up this service.  If you are still having trouble afterwards, please feel free to contact our technical support dept, as we fully support every unit we sell for the lifetime of the unit.
