Only getting notifications at night and very I frequently. Often I have to go through the library to see if I’ve had visitors, the motion detect is on and so is the notification option turned on.


Hi @dilkumar192,

Thank you so much for reaching out!

Could you unplug your Camera Phone and see if you get a notification?

If not, you might have to check your settings:

Also, make sure notifications from Alfred have been enabled on your device.

Let me know how it turns out!


If I have a device in my trust circle that had switched off notifications will I still receive them?


Hi @dilkumar192,

Thank you for reaching out!

While only Camera owners can enable/disable Motion Detection, you can switch notifications on/off as you wish.

Please let us know if you have any questions!


I have all the settings as suggested. I used Alfred on another phone and it worked fine. But I’m still not getting notifications from the motion detector, but events do store for playback later.


Hi @dilkumar192,

We noticed your Viewer device is an S8. Please give the tips here a go and let us know if it helps!


Hi, can I ask why you you asked about plugged in or not? I’m getting notifications when not plugged in but non when plugged in.
