Hi Richard, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.

I am very sorry about your issues. Do you access your CCTV system settings on your computer? Or on the tv/monitor connected to the CCTV system?

Please let me know by replying to me here so that I can help you further.

Best regards,
Jess

Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for that information. Can you please tell me the email account that you want to ADD there in your CCTV so that I can assist you with the correct settings?

Thank you for that information.

In most CCTV systems, the emailing system that it offers is just like an email program built-in to the CCTV system that will send notification to you using your existing email account.

So you need to add your existing email there, which is a Hotmail, and then for the STMP server information, please enter the following:

SMTP Server: smtp-mail.outlook.com

Port: 587

I hope that helped.

I noticed that you requested for a Secure Remote Assistance. I have already sent you the needed information, please give them a try and they should work.

I also asked if you are able to access the CCTV system through your computer but you mentioned you access it through the attached TV so remote access will not work, I can only access a computer.

Ok now would i get emails from my cctv system
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, you shall get notification emails from the CCTV system!

Please enter the needed information there and it should work as expected.

I hope that helped.
