Camera motion detector triggers smartphone

Postby Leneque » Mon Sep 18, 2017 2:18 am

I've been trying to find a solution in and outside this forum. I've purchased and connected a Foscam FI9816P to my network with a QNAP TS453A. On my QNAP I'm running Surveillance station. Now, what I would like to do is to make a configuration that gives an alarm to my smartphone when the camera picks up motion. I've successfully used a client on my smartphone, but since it needs to be constantly monitoring the image, battery consumption is unacceptable.
Please, does anyone have a solution?

I think this goes same with other cameras. I read something somewhere that confirms the motion detection affects the batteries. You can check few details of it. We have an Arlo cam and it seems to show the same. I guess we'll have to sacrifice our batteries if we're into motion detection. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
