Adding policies is essential if you want to receive alerts and notifications for certain events like the presence of a person or an unidentified face. Policies can be assigned on a per camera basis and notifications can be assigned for different days and times.
To create a policy, go to the Policies area from Settings and choose "Alert Policies".
In Alert Policies, click the 'Add Policy' button to create new one.
Once you name the policy and give an optional description, you can now configure it. To do that simply click the "Edit" button as the default policy will alert every day at all times.
There are a couple of ways to assign a policy to a camera or switch its policy. These policies generally dictate how alerts and notifications are triggered for a given camera or group of cameras.
- From the web, go to the particular camera and choose to assign it to a different policy
- From the web, go to Settings->Policies, choose the desired policy, and select "Assigned Cameras". From there, choose "Add Camera"
