sighthound alert send mutiple images

by badger3x » Tue Jul 21, 2020 2:33 am

I'd like to see the option to have multiple images sent via an alert eMail on motion detect, rather than a single snapshot. i.e you see 3-5 images of what action just took place. this often provides a lot more context than just a single snapshot. Surely that is not that hard to implement.

This has been requested in the past, elsewhere on this forum but never received any attention, other than a comment from Ryan.

Depending on your cameras I'd look elsewhere to solve these types of requests....

If you're so inclined, a raspberry PI (and/or just running Node-Red on your NVR windows box) will solve most issues.
You can have SightHound trigger an event via webhook and then have NodeRed request captures from each camera, bundle it all together and send it as a notification through Pushover.

Granted, not a "all in one" package from SightHound, but then again, it's a solution today v.s. possible, maybe in the distant future....
