Motion detection email
  • I have security spy set up to record whenever motion is detected. I would like to be able to turn on or off the ability to send an email when motion is detected via indigo. I know you can change the cameras from active to passive, and by setting the option to only detect motion when cameras are active this would work, however I want to record all motion, just not always send the email with the images attached. Importantly, I want to be able to turn this feature on and off via indigo. Is there any way I can achieve this?
  • Yes this is possible. Please see the "Camera Settings Change" AppleScript Example. Create two AppleScripts, setting the "sendEmailCheck" parameter to 0 in one script and 1 in the other. Then set Indigo to run each AppleScript as an action, to be invoked upon a trigger that you configure.

    Hope this helps.
  • Thanks Ben, I haven't played with Apple Script before, looks like it's time to learn!
