I have a client requesting email alerts from his VMAX that is already installed. I'm not on site but am merely trying to ascertain whether this is possible. While reading the manual I see the VMAX is able to send an email alert triggered by a motion alarm. Presumably the manual is referring to camera detect motion as opposed to some type of contact closure from an occupancy sensor or the like?

What I want to do is grid off part of the camera facing the safe for motion detection and any time that field senses motion, the DVR will send client an email alert, and of course begin recording to the hard drive. Does this sound right based on anybody's experience with this DVR? Thanks in advance.

Here is a copy of the screen shot of the notifications tab of of one of my customer's VMAX units.  I
just don't see how you just do motion e-mail notification on just one camera, unless you only set that one to
motion recording and the others to continuous recording.  Then the only notification would be from the safe camera.

This would work however you would not have motion notification on the other channels.  You could call them on monday for a confirmation.

Thanks for checking into that. I called DW support and you can set email alerts per channel based upon motion detect...exactly what we needed. If it was an all or nothing type setup that would be annoying; client would be getting email alerts from all channels all throughout the day.
