Email is sent once per minute during loss of signal

Post by frank » Sun Aug 02, 2020 12:45 pm

Blue Iris 4

When a loss of signal is detected, I would like to have an email sent every 30 minutes. In the "Configure Email alert" window, "Timer" is set to "Wait at least 30.0 min. between alerts". However, an email is being sent every minute during a failure. "Limit to one email per trigger event" is NOT checked.

In the "Alerts" tab, Watchdog profile, "Send an email message" is checked.

In the "Watchdog" tab:
Detect a loss of signal is checked.
Timeout period is set to 30 seconds.
Trigger alert after 1 timeouts.
Continue triggering until signal is restored.

Do I have something set wrong?

Thank you!!

So does anyone use the Watchdog utility to send an email upon camera failure?
