First step in setting up your DVR/NVR to send an email notification upon motion is to navigate to the
Email section of your unit. Setting this function up is recommended via the web browser for a quicker
setup. To do so on the browser go to Settings-> Network-> Email. Within the Email section you will see
multiple fields to fill in. Below is a brief explanation of what goes in each field required. (Reference
image on Pg2).
Server Authentication – Make sure the option next to “on” is selected. This turns on the email function
within your unit.
Username – Here you will input in the username you use to login to your email account.
Password – Here you will input the password used to login to your email account.
SMTP Server – Here you will fill in your corresponding SMTP server. Gmail is the recommended email
provider to use with GenIV DVR/NVR’s. Gmail’s SMTP server is smtp.gmail.com.
SMTP Port – Here you will fill in your corresponding SMTP port (When SSL or TLS is enabled the port
will be 25).

the email corresponding with the username).

Once all the above section are filled in, select Test. If succeeded, check the email(s) input for receiver
and verify you received a test email. If you get Test failed, something input in the above fields is
incorrect (Make sure you are hooked to your network).
Once all fields are filled in with the correct corresponding info be sure to select save.
