zm email alert for event where alarms exeeds xxx

Post by neuronetv » Mon Apr 07, 2014 7:52 pm

I'd like zm to send email alerts when it's created an event containing a number of alarm-frames that exceeds a certain amount. is this possible? eg: if an event contains 40 or more alarm-frames zm will email, if it's less that 40 it won't. Thanks for any help.

ok thanks but I don't seem to have this filter called Sendmail*. If I go to event filter and click the drop down menu next to Use Filter I have only one filter there called PurgeWhenFull*. How or where do I get the Sendmail* filter?

Hello neuronetv,

Youll have to add your own filter, any name will do!!

For more details see: http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.ph ... ent_Filter

Remember Google is your friend!!

Good luck, Christo

thanks for your further help. I think I've got it working now.
I set up the filter and clicked execute. I've just sent myself about 500 emails and triggered gmail's spam alarms. What a fabulous feature though, and the emails specify which camera and everything.
