It is most easy to follow this article when the language of your system is set in English.

Step 1: enable motion detection

Use the mouse and go to the bottom of the screen to reach the menu:

Stap 2: enter e-mail account

Our recorders use Gmail to send notifications. Please create a Gmail account first if you don't have one. The Gmail account will only be used to send notifications. You can receive notifications on any other e-mail acocunt. Use the mouse and go to the bottom of the screen to reach the menu:

Now we have to make sure the recorder is allowed to send notifications from your Gmail account. Log in on Gmail and follow these steps:
