What a crazy decision - to remove the email alarm feature. Not everyone has a portable android/iOS device.
Talking from exerpeince, a friend asked me to help set up his new "zmodo secruity camera", but he only has a windows phone and laptop. I looked online and saw his camera supported email alerts, so atleast i could get alarms coming to his phone/email. Now i've discovered why I couldn't get alarms sending through (after 3hours troubleshooting)
Could anyone share some more information on the working smtp secruity authentication protocol? Though i've never known any secruity software (old firmware and new) to not send out smtp alarms. Mind boggled.
Zmodo needs to put out an announcement ASAP weather they're going to remove email alerts feature or fix their firmware, which wouldn't take more than a week inc testing.
But thank you @Patty for standing in the line of fire. Your honesty is appreciated.
