Hello,

I am trying to figure out how to setup the camera to only send a snapshot by email when a certain area in the camera view is crossed.  I seem to either get three emails for each event, one with like a start time , no image, a second with an image but no movement action I see that tiggered it and a third email that says detection stopped.  What is the purpose of the snap shot an send to email on both the detection page and video masking page?  On the detection page the area that I use the adjustable box for masking, is the area inside the box the area that is being detected or is that the area that is supposed to be ignored?

Thanks,

Steve

The Camera needs to be dialed in per your environment. There are several options in the snapshot settings that need to be adjusted. I would suggest calling in when you can so we can go these settings and testing as it is fairly in depth.
