Enabling or disabling Alert Notifications

Last Updated: Feb 26, 2015 11:44AM GMT
To enable or disable Alert Notifications, log into your HomeMonitor account either on the desktop website or one of the mobile apps. On the ‘My Home’ page, you just need to click the ‘Alert Notification’ button to switch it on or off.
The ‘Alert Notification’ button contains a speech bubble with an exclamation mark in it. When coloured in, Alert Notifications are enabled; when greyed out, Alert Notification is disabled.

It is worth noting that you need to have Motion Recording enabled in order to turn on Alert Notifications.

If you wish to change the type of Alert Notifications you receive, please check out this article in the Camera Manager section of the Support Centre: Changing the alert notifications you receive

    What information should I include?

    If submitting an issue about an existing HomeMonitor account, please include relevant information to your problem, such as:

    Your Account Name
    Camera ID
    How camera is connected
    Router make/model
    Device you are using to access

    If you don't know this information, don't worry, our team will help you find the information you need to get up and running.

    Can I speak to someone?

    We initially deal with all support enquiries through email so the best person possible can help you as quickly as possible. Most issues can and are resolved by email, and much quicker than by phone. If a phone call is required, we will arrange a set time to phone you back so we can get you up and running. Contact us now.
