Notifications Text Message

Hi,

Shouldn’t there be another way of notification for a security camera system? e.g. a text message, or a call in case you are offline?

Welcome to the forums! I get text messages so that option is certainly available. You need to set it up on your phone. As far as a call, unless they could set up a robo call, how much would you be willing to pay for professional monitoring because that’s what it would take to do that?

Hi Ron. Thank you for that. How do you set up the sms notifications? Is it through the blink app or phone settings? Regarding the call I would be happy just with the sms.

In your phone there’s a listing of all your apps. This is where you enable/disable notifications. It’s slightly different between brands of phones and between Android vs IOS. You’ll have to poke around a bit or ask any teenager! LOL
