Re: Sending emails is OK during the day but stops at night?

Were the SMTP setting correctly set for the CCTV device?

Is the CCTV system fully patched / up to date?

One last mystery for me is why was the CCTV fine between 19.00 and 00.00 and after then it starts to send multiple auth attempts until early around 7.00 am? Again it has got to be in the CCTV settings somewhere?


Given the well defined time period it is probably a scheduled job. If appropriate to disclose, what CCTV system is this?

There does seem to be scheduler configuration for these devices, for example a monitored area with expected foot traffic during the day may not be observed as closely as it is at night when the foot traffic is less; going OT so I will leave things here.

They don't sell Kare any more; replaced with https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00KPSARL4/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1 

They are all clones of each other whatever the brand!

It does a good job, apart from messing up my emails !!

Re: Sending emails is OK during the day but stops at night?

 

"I do really appreciate everyone's efforts to find the source of the problem - thank you!

I explored the settings and found one camera out of 8 in the motion detect settings was set to high sensitivity AND to send an email ! I have now disabled this setting and set it to write a log instead."

Thanks for the update and glad we got there in the end 🙂

Thanks for your co-operation and patience - I'll leave in the capable hands of the Community members on this thread with regards to further CCTV queries..

All the best 🙂

Motion detection events would normally send an email as soon as motion is detected, so unless there's something vastly different about what goes on in range of that camera ONLY between 12am and 5am - I'd think that could well be a red herring.
