Suggestion: Multiple snapshots attached to notifications

Unread post by sparrow » Wed Jul 26, 2017 9:16 pm

Just sent this through the Feature Suggestion form on the official site.

Anyone else find this would be really helpful?

Hi guys
On Surveillance Station > Notifications > Email we can attach a single event snapshot alongside a notification email.
This is useful to an extent but a single snapshot quite often misses the event. This means we then have to enter DS Cam etc and try play a video over our phones or cellular network etc (very slow).

It's be more useful if we had the ability to mimic the HIKVISION setup where we can specify the number of snapshots over the number of milliseconds or seconds to be attached to the email.

This would be an incredibly useful addition for us wether it's Email or Push Service notifications etc

Thumbs up, I fully agree!

I have three IP cameras managed by Surveillance Station and I am missing that option from the time when I only had one camera, a simple D-Link DCS-2330L, and were not using Surveillance Station. That camera had a firmware supporting that option. As I had it activated using five snapshots attached to the notifications they were much more informative than the single snapshot notifications I get from Surveillance Station nowadays.

Let's hope for having this supported!

It was my entry level D Link camera which used to do this too. Since replaced with a Hikvision but the D Link used to do it best. :D

And supporting smart motion detection of hickvision would be awesome. With only motion detecion I receive too much false alerts

I agree - I also miss the feature. My cam can send 5 pics before the motion detection and 5 after - all in one E-mail. That is perfect to check if the alarm is false or not. How do I find the suggestion and vote it up?
