Using the latest firmware release, DS-K1T671TM-3XF can send email notifications directly from the terminal, eliminating the dependency on client software for such feature. This document will guide through the necessary pre-requisites and procedures required to setup email notifications on DS-K1T671TM-3XF.
Certain email services, such as Gmail, may prevent devices or software from accessing its email features by default. In most cases, the email account must be set to allow “less secure apps” for DS-K1T671TM-3XF to utilize the account for email notifications during an event trigger. The example below describes how to configure this on a Gmail account.
1. Login to Gmail and enter the account settings by selecting the user icon at the top right and clicking on [Manage your Google Account].
2. Go to [Security] and find the [Less secure app access] section of the page. Enable access to this feature. It may take minutes for this setting to take effect.
All event data currently stored in DS-K1T671TM-3XF will be treated as queued notifications when the email feature is enabled, which may cause numerous emails to be sent at one time. It is highly recommended that event data is backed up and then erased from DS-K1T671TM-3XF to prevent this. Event data can be exported locally with a USB storage device or remotely via iVMS-4200 client software. Please refer to the document, Export Event Data from DS-K1T671TM-3XF, for more information.
Email feature of DS-K1T671TM-3XF can only be setup and configured through its local interface. Please ensure that the email account credentials, and the terminal’s administrator password is known before proceeding.
- In the default screen of DS-K1T671TM-3XF, hold the screen for several seconds until the terminal prompts for an administrator password. Enter the terminal’s administrator password to enter the settings menu.
2. Go to the [Mail] menu section to setup and configure email notifications. All email account and recipient information will be entered in this menu. Please note that email notifications are limited to only one recipient.
Sender’s name on the email message.
Sender’s email address on the email message.
SMTP server address of email service.
(e.g. smtp.gmail.com for Gmail)
SMTP port used by the SMTP server. The port should correspond to the encryption chosen.
(e.g. 587 for Gmail TLS encryption)
Username of email account; enter full email address.
Password of email account.
Confirm password of email account.
Name of email recipient.
Email address of recipient.
Required for terminal to send authentication to email server. Ensure that this is enabled.
Enable email notification feature.
Encryption used by SMTP server.
(e.g. TLS for Gmail)
3. Save setup and configuration changes by pressing on the [ √ ] icon at the top right of the menu. Email notifications will now be sent based on abnormal temperature and no mask detection events. Below are examples of the email notifications sent by DS-K1T671TM-3XF.
Notification emails can also be sent through the iVMS-4200 starting from version 126.96.36.199. Steps below:
- Setup email sender and receiver information in the iVMS-4200.
- Send Test Email to ensure client and network settings are correct.
- Choose the appropriate event to trigger sending a notification emails. v188.8.131.52 sends only a thermal photo as email attachment.
Note: There is a past issue with iVMS-4200 v184.108.40.206 that a test email along with other common triggering events will send emails, but not "Abnormal Temperature" event. This has been resolved in v220.127.116.11.
