You can follow the steps below to set up alarm emails on Reolink App.
Step 1. Log in to your device on Reolink App and tap the gear icon at the upper right to enter Device Settings.
Step 2. Tap Email Alerts.
Step 3. Enable Email Alerts and tap Set Up Now.
Step 4. Input the address and password of the email that will be used to send out motion alert emails, fill in the sender server info, and tap Save to save the settings.
- The SMTP Server and Port may vary among different email providers. If you use Gmail, Outlook, Hotmail, Yahoo, iCloud, or Zoho, the sender server info will be automatically filled in after you enter the email address. Otherwise, you will need to input the corresponding SMTP Server & Port info manually.
- The recipient that receives the alert emails will be the same as the sender by default.
Step 5. If you want to add more recipients, go to Email Settings to add more email addresses.
SMTP server: Please click the ">" icon button to choose the correct email SMTP server and related SMTP port. If you choose Gmail, Yahoo, or Outlook, the SMTP port will be displayed by default. If you choose Other, then please Google on the Internet or log into your email official website to find the corresponding email server and SMTP port.
Sender Name: Please note that the sender’s name is optional. You can name it or leave it blank.
Sender Email: Please enter the corresponding email address according to your email SMTP server. For example, if you choose Gmail as the SMTP server, then the sender's Email address is your Gmail address.
Password: Please enter the sender’s email address and password. For example, if you choose Gmail as SMTP server, then the password is your Gmail address’ password. To best protect your email account privacy, you may also choose to generate an app password in your email account instead of using your original email password.
Recipient Email: Please enter the recipient’s email address. Please note that the recipient's email address can be the same as the sender’s email address or different from the sender’s address of your choice.
Email Content: You may choose to attach a picture or video with the motion alert emails or select no attachment if you want text notification only (Attach video is not available for battery-powered cameras).
Email Interval: Once set, only one motion-alert email will be sent if the alarm is triggered multiple times during the interval time limit. For battery-powered cameras, there are no settings for the email interval.
Step 6. Go to Schedule to customize detention type and schedule.
