How do I setup my software to email me pictures?


Follow these steps to setup Vanguard software to email snapshots when motion is detected:

  • Click on the Options tab on the right-hand side. Once Options is open, select the Motion tab on the left-hand side, and you should see the screen below:

  • Enter the appropriate email address information, and add it to the address book; then select OK.

Repeat these steps for each additional camera you setup.

Please note that Vanguard uses SMTP to send email.

You may need to edit security settings on your PC and/or network to allow Vanguard emails to go out.
