I purchased and setup a Zmodo 8CH Smart PoE surveillance camera system. I have installed the zmodo app and cannot get push alerts when motion is occurring.
The NVR has a hard drive and I can go back and view footage and it highlights the motion in orange. It also has an images section that summaries snapshots of motion. Therefore I believe the motion sensing is working at least on the NVR. I did not find the motion was occurring continuously as it was suggested that the motion alert will not work properly if a motion is always detected.
I have read that I should only turn on alerts for only one mode settings which I have done (I selected the Away mode to have alerts while the others do not). I have also made sure when I close the app I check continue to receive push alerts. I made sure my phone is allowing notifications from the zmodo app. I have uninstalled the zmodo app, restart the NVR, tried the MeShare app, and even tried both apps on my work iphone. Under motion there is no content on both apps and both phones.
As an alternative route I was unsuccessful getting email alerts to work but I believe email alerts are no longer supported.
What am I doing wrong?
