The following guide is about to show how you can establish a motion detection connection in Camera Recorder and send alerts via e-mail when it detects motion. The guide provides a step by step guide which shows how you can create an e-mail connection which will forward the alerts to the e-mail account and how to create the motion detection connection itself.
