Bark’n Mad

Remote Monitoring and Email Alerts

Introduction

Remote monitoring over iCloud and Email alerts both use snapshot captures of the monitoring screen. Once you are used to the colour audio analysis you will find this quite sufficient for your needs. Email Alerts

Remote Monitoring

Configuration The remote monitoring configuration settings options follows: On the Monitoring Device: Firstly you specify how frequently you want periodic updates, these are timed updates which happen when there has been no barking. Secondly you specify how long the app has to wait before repeating a barking update. When a barking update is made the periodic timer is reset. Normally you would probably be monitoring from your residence where there is WiFi so there would be no need to enable cellular data. On the Receiving Device: The first two settings are irrelevant. I’d recommend you enable cellular data on the remote monitoring device Monitoring You start monitoring as normal. The status area confirms that remote monitoring is on. The Remote Monitoring Recipient If you looked at Bark’n Mad on the receiving device prior to the session start you would see that the link showed a completed monitoring session. Once the monitor session has started the link colour turns green to say there is an active session in progress. Touch this green button and the app now sits waiting for a monitoring update. There is a muted bell icon at the top RHS of the navigation bar touch this to receive audible barking alerts. A barking update is received. Note the red barking dog icon. A timed periodic update is now received. Note the clock icon. Also there is an arrow indicator to the left showing that there are other images that can be viewed Shortly after the session finishes the top navigation bar turns brown (inactive session) and the end time is inserted. A little while later an end of session update snapshot is received.

Email Alerts

Configuration In this case the app’s own email server is configured and one email addresses is enabled and confirmed. The initial configuration is similar to remote monitoring. Firstly you specify how frequently you want periodic emails these are timed emails which occur when there has been no barking. Secondly you specify how long the app has to wait before repeating a barking alert email. When a barking email is sent the periodic timer is reset.
