If you’re using gmail, then you can specify the following when you configure your camera connection:
- Smtp server address: smtp.gmail.com
- Smtp server port: 465
- Sender email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Sender username: email@example.com
- Sender password: your gmail password
- Encryption: Use SSL/TLS
- Receiver email address firstname.lastname@example.org (see address under Settings-Estate settings-Camera settings)
If you use 2 factor authentication, you will need to setup app specific passwords that you use on the cameras. To do so, login to your gmail account and select Security, then under Signing in to Google tap App Passwords. At the bottom of the screen, Select the app and device for which you want to generate the app password. You can select Other app and enter a free text description like “AH camera”. The tap Generate to get the app specific password.
You’re probably not interested in keeping the messages sent from the cameras to Alarmhandler. To auto delete them, just setup a rule in Gmail. In Gmail tap the settings “cog” icon a select Settings. Then select the tab “Filters and blocked addresses” and add a rule that matches from: email@example.com to: firstname.lastname@example.org (where xxxxxxxx is the camera address) and do this: Delete it.
You may also consider creating an extra mail account that you only use for your cameras to send mails to the Alarmhandler servers.
