Use this screen to apply or create new alert schedules for each of your cameras, enter the recipients you want to  receive alerts, and define the frequency you receive notifications.


To help you get started, Alert Commander comes with pre-set schedules: Always On, Always Off, Nights Only, School Week, Weekdays Only, Weekend Only, Work Week. But if these are not right for you, you can edit any pre-set schedule or create your own.


When you install Alert Commander, it obeys your previous e-mail alert settings, “Always On” or “Always Off.”  If “Always On,” the camera will continue sending alerts 24/7 until you select a pre-set alert time period or create a customized alert schedule.  If “Always Off,” no alerts will be sent.
