When a camera associated with your account detects motion, your phone or other mobile device receives a notification about the event. The notification includes when the event happened and which camera detected movement.
  • Push notifications can be set up for each camera, and you can assign a notification schedule to the camera so that you only receive notifications during the specified days and times.
  • Each camera can have multiple notification schedules, which are easily modified, enabled, or disabled as required.
  • Push notifications can be used to quickly open the video at the motion detected bookmark in the Stratocastâ„¢ mobile app.
The following examples show the iOS or Android push notifications that are sent (if configured) when a camera detects motion.
