Mobotix cameras can’t send Push notifications directly.
You use a 3rd party to do it.
The Aussie service I had been using was expensive & complex with poor service so I looked around for a better solution.
Here it is.
It uses Pushover.
A smart phone
To know how to login to your camera as an admin user on a computer web browser
A gmail account
Your gmail account User Name and Password
That’s it! When Pushover’s servers get the email from your camera - BOOM! - they send you a push notification. Happy days.
Step 1 is easy. If you get stuck hit me up on the website or the facebook.
Admin Menu > E-Mail Profiles
Addressing: your gmail address
Authentication Method: SMTP Login
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com:587
Login User Name: your gmail user name
Login Password: your gmail password
Add new profile
Name your new E-Mail Profile PUSHOVER
Addressing: put your pushover email here
E-Mail Message Subject Text: something that describes the event eg Driveway Movement
Set > Close > OK
Setup Menu > Action Group Overview
Add new group
Action Group Name: PUSHOVER
Event Selection: Image Analysis: AS
Add New Action
Action 1: select E-Mail: PUSHOVER
Set > Close > OK
That’s it. Now go walk in front of your camera & test it.
If you’ve done it right AS will trigger and you’ll get the notification.
First test that the camera is ending the email properly by doing this:
Admin Menu > Test Current Network Configuration
Close any pop up window.
Scroll down to your E-Mail Profile called PUSHOVER
Close the pop-up and scroll down again and you should see a friendly green message “E-mail has been sent!”
Anything in red is bad.
Actually it’s not that bad.
Go back and check your email settings at Admin Menu > E-mail Profiles and correct what’s wrong.
Let me know how you got on. firstname.lastname@example.org
