DRIVER SPECIFIC FAQ
Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver?
At Recluse we utilise this driver to email out notifications from a dedicated recluseav.com.au email address to notify us on who armed and disarmed our security system (by using variables in conjunction with our M1 driver).
We also utilise format the email to look professional. This includes our logo in the signature using HTML.
As you provide your own email service you can utilise this for customer support. You will be able to receive replies from customers on these email notifications.
Are there any other cool things we can do with this driver?
Recluse AV plans to release a POP3 email driver. This driver will be designed to work with the SMTP driver to allow for automatic email communication to/from Control4. Imagine being able to email Control4 to turn a light on and having Control4 email you back notifying you that it has! This is currently in developmental stage so please stay tuned.
We have recently added the ability to attach files to the emails. This mean that you can now attach snapshots or movies from any web based camera or attach other files such as PDF or word based troubleshooting docs. This has been tested on Axis IP Cameras, Panasonic IP Cameras and Wirepath DVR’s with great success.
