Motion filter Email setup

Post by rebootln » Tue Jan 03, 2017 7:06 pm

Hey all - new to the board here


so i have everything working - it was pretty straight up setup

My issue is with email alerts

I would like to email all motion alerts as they happen - however filters are reloaded in interval and executed the same way ( in different interval)

so for this set up i have :
and cause = motion
and alarm frames < 50
and date = now
and time > 18:00 or time < 08:00

This works except that it matches many events every time it runs and emails them all over again

if i limit to first 5 events - no matter if there is 1 new of 20 new - either i will get 5 duplicates or i will miss 15 ...


so ... what is the proper way to do this ?

What am i missing ? :)

Thank you!

so i made some progress on this - i hope this helps someone

Set the filter reload to 60 seconds
set the filter execution to 60 seconds

set the filter to get you events of -1 minute
the key is Greater then or equal to and NOT less then or equal to -

for whatever dumb reason i could not wrap my head around that until it became crystal clear - so i admit - i thought i was wrong but i was just mistaken :) LOL


Like i said - i hope it helps someone - as there was no responses to my question :)

this filter works for me and sends 1 email per event ->
Frames -> Greater than or equal to -> 1
and
Cause -> not equal to -> Signal #this prevents false alarm email because of a camera signal interruption. remove or create another filter to send email, if camera drops out and you want be notified with an email.
Date/Time -> Decending _> Limit to First= 1

How does the Frames >= 1 work? Where can I find definitions of the variables, like "Frames" and "Cause", including possible values?

I also want to know where the definitions of variables are. Can't find them anywhere.
