  2. Change the following parameters, as required:
    First name
    The user’s first name (or given name).
    Last name
    The user’s last name (or surname).
    Phone number
    The user's phone number.
    Email address
    Your email address. You can change the email address if you want to receive emails at a different email address than the one that appears in the Username field.
    The language of the user interface. The user must log off and then log on for this change to take effect.
    Mobile authentication key
    The key that authenticates you to the Stratocast™ mobile apps and allows you to connect to the apps from all of your mobile devices.
  3. For your email notifications, change the following:
    Receive camera disconnected and camera reconnected notifications
    Select this check box if you want to be notified by email when a camera disconnects from the system and when it reconnects. Separate email messages are sent for each disconnect and reconnect notification.
    Important: The camera must be unreachable for 10 minutes for a notification to be sent.
    Receive motion detection notifications
    Select this check box if you want to be notified by email that a camera has detected motion based on the camera's current motion detection settings.
    Note: If motion settings are too sensitive, you will receive an unnecessary number of email notifications.
    Receive email updates about Stratocast™ and provide feedback
    Select this check box if you want to receive email updates about Stratocast™ periodically. You are also invited to provide your suggestions and comments about Stratocast™.
  4. Click Save or Cancel.
