Re: Is anyone using Yahoo as your email for notifications?

Bummer.. I have the exact same settings and "Allow apps that use less secure sign-in" on. It's weird because I'm getting the emails with an image marker but no actual image is attached or downloading. Even when logging into my gmail account to where my yahoo account is sending the notifications no i...

Is anyone using Yahoo as your email for notifications?

Like most, my gmail account stopped working. So I changed my email to Yahoo and it's kinda working. I'll get email notifications that the camera triggered but there will be no image attached. I never made any changes to any other settings other than the Email settings. When I checked on them they al...

Using Amcrest cameras with a Lorex NVR

I'm pretty disappointed at Amcrest for their ongoing failure to resolve the gmail issue. Yet my Lorex system at home works great and continues to send gmail emails. So at this point I'm done with Amcrest. For simplicity sake, can I use the Amcrest cameras with a new Lorex NVR? The cameras that came ...

Re: Emails stopped working...

I'm not buying Amcrest's claim this is a Google issue, which is preventing gmail accounts from getting email notifications. I have a Lorex system at home and I use the same gmail settings as I have on my Amcrest system and it works fine. So this is clearly and Amcrest issue to resolve and they're co...

Re: Email alerts no longer sending

Thank you for posting that. Mine stopped sending emails over the weekend too.

I changed the port to 587 and Encrypt type to TLS.

I'll know tonight for sure if that worked. But the test email said normal as opposed to fail before.

Re: Amcrest View iOS app not connecting on iOS 10 Beta

Unfortunately, due to the lack of assistance from Amcrest I figured out how to resolve the issue myself. I deleted the app from my iPhone and restarted my phone. Upon restart I downloaded the Amcrest Viewer Pro again. I configured it again and it started working right away. Obviously, something happ...

Re: Amcrest View iOS app not connecting on iOS 10 Beta

This is one of my beefs with Amcrest and other small companies that have apps. Many are not part of the iOS Apple Developers team because they're too cheap to pay for it. Instead, they wait until the new iOS comes out and THEN fix their app if it breaks, which can take months. I'm glad I only update...

Amcrest iPhone app no longer works

It works fine on my iPad (9.3.5). However, it hasn't been working on my iPhone (same OS) for days. Doing the iOS 10 upgrade made no difference, iPhone app no longer works.
