Open the E-Mail Profiles dialog to create and manage profiles for automatically sending images in e-mails.
You need to create at least one profile that you can select in the Time Tasks or Messaging dialogs for sending images via e-mail.
The MOBOTIX camera can send images via e-mail to recipients to report e.g. unauthorized access to a specific area.
You may define one or multiple e-mail profiles. Every e-mail profile contains all the information required to send e-mails to one address. The transfer can be triggered either by a task defined in the Time Tasks dialog or by an event defined in the Messaging dialog
You can enter any text and use predefined variables, as described in Examples for Dynamic Text in Subject Lines.
This dialog contains global options that can be used in all profiles and profile options only valid for the respective profile.
It is recommended to use the global options for entering frequently used parameters (e.g. SMTP Server, Authentication Method, User Name and Password). Leave the corresponding fields empty in the profiles in which you would like to use the global values.
|Click on the More button at the bottom of the dialog to display all options for all profiles.
Set the following parameters for each profile in the E-Mail Profiles dialog:
|Mail Profile n
Enter a unique profile name.
Enter the recipient's address to which the e-mail will be sent.
Enter the sender's (valid!) address. Otherwise, the e-mail cannot be sent.
|If an error occurs, the e-mail will be sent to this address. Normally, you would enter the address of either your administrator or a camera user.
|This text will be displayed in the subject line of the e-mail. For some examples of how this option can be used, see the Examples for Dynamic Text in Subject Lines help page.
|This text will be displayed in the text area for the e-mail. You can also use dynamic text containing Variables and Placeholders.
Select the desired type of data you would like to transfer:
Image from image profile
For every FTP profile, you can use a specific image format that is independent of the image format currently displayed by the camera. These formats are saved in the camera as image profiles.
Select one of the image profiles defined in the Image Profiles dialog.
MxPEG or JPEG clip
Select the file format of the image files:
Set the desired Clip Frame Rate and the time to include before and after the event(Time Before and Time After).
Select the System Message Scope to include the desired range of system messages.
The following possibilities for authentication are supported:
IP address or name of the e-mail server. Your Internet provider or administrator will provide this information.
Make sure that the following prerequisites are fulfilled:
|If you have set the Authentication Method parameter to POP before SMTP, you need to enter the respective POP3 server here.
|Login User Name
Enter the user name for logging on to the SMTP server.
You will be assigned a user name either by your Internet provider or by your system administrator.
Enter the password for logging on to the SMTP server.
You will be assigned a password either by your Internet provider or by your system administrator.
If you have created or modified one or more profiles, you should test the profiles (after you have closed the dialog using the Set and Close buttons and you have stored the configuration permanently). Open the Test Current Network Configuration dialog for testing. Click on the Transfer button behind the corresponding profile and monitor the output on the Network Test Log window. For additional information on this topic, see the Test Network Current Configuration help page.
In order to delete a profile, check the Delete option in the top right corner of the profile. The profile will be deleted as soon as you click on the Set button in the lower part of the dialog.
Click on the Set button to check the created profiles. If a profile is faulty or entries are missing, you will be prompted to correct or complete your entries for this profile. If no errors have been detected, the profile is stored temporarily.
Using variables and placeholders, the camera can dynamically integrate information into the e-mails it is sending out.
|The camera's dynamic IP address assigned by either the provider or by a DHCP server is supposed to be transferred in the subject line.
|Definition of subject line
$(id.nam): Event=$(fpr.eno) IP=$(ID.ET0)
|In an outdoor setting, the state of the signal input (external sensor) should be visible in the e-mail subject line.
|Definition of subject line
$(id.nam): Internal PIR=$(SEN.PIR)% Signal Input=$(SEN.SIN)
Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the next reboot of the camera.
Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
