App alerts are great if you would like to be notified when an event gets triggered.

Step 1. Creating an Event and Enabling App Linkage

In this guide, we will show how to create a simple motion event from both the HDMI Interface and the Web Interface. Simply scroll down til you see the interface you are using.

Step 2. Enabling The Notifications From Guarding Vision

Please note, we are adding the NVR using the cloud P2P process.

  • From the Device List, swipe the NVR to the left to reveal a cogwheel icon


  • Select Notification, then Enable.


You can create a notification schedule if you'd like, but if you keep it disabled, then you will receive alerts whenever an Event is triggered for the camera's that have alerts turned on.

Now your phone will receive a push notification you can view all Notifications from the Notification Tab on the app.


If the notifications don't work right away, do not worry, they sometimes take can a short while to push to the phone. (Usually its the smart events that don't go through instantly, if any)
