Capabilities advice

by hamiltonvideo » Wed May 04, 2016 1:03 pm

Hello,

I am currently installing a 40 camera security into a new school building using Acti software and ONVIF supported cameras. They then wondered about an alarm type system that could replace the motion detection system they have in their old building. Right now when the last person leaves they have to set the security and then if anyone goes into the building after that time, a few people receive a phone call.

This is what I am thinking: Add Sighthound to my system just for the monitoring a couple doors with the Real Time Alerts. I would then set a schedule to alert after hours and hopefully replace the need for the other alarm system. (saving them a ton of money).

1. Am I in the right thinking that this would do the job for me?
2. Is there a way to send alerts to more than one phone at a time? (I would prefer 2-3)
3. Anything I am missing that I need to be aware of?

Maybe if the 2-3 people all shared the same email address that the alerts can all be sent to.....get a yahoo app for each phone and have sighthound send the alerts all to the same address.

TO the right of the subject line in each posting are two icons, one is a flag shape and the other is a double-quote shape. Click in the Flag and then follow the directions in the page that appears. This is where you can alert the forum owners of the unwanted junk. They usually respond to the report within a couple of hours (except weekends and holidays).

I notice that someone else actually thanked the spammer for it... seems they were looking for info on a particular camera and found it because the spammer brought the thread to the top!

Personally, I like my SPAM fried and on a bun with lots of iceberg lettuce and a slice of tomato and some Miracle Whip Lite.

DUPLICATE the rule 3 times and go back are re edit the email address where you want it to go to.
i have not tried it.

​Search list

Creating and editing rules

You can create rules with very specific search criteria, such as people who walk in a door that is in a location you specify. You can save these searches for later use, and edit them on the fly to quickly filter down large collections of video.
Create new event rules by clicking the "+" button. The "-" button deletes the selected saved search.
The Edit and Duplicate buttons let you modify and copy searches, respectively. Search criteria are edited in the rule-editor https://www.sighthound.com/support/rule-editor.
