    Help setting up triggers for first time

    Just downloaded BI and set up my first camera. I'm experimenting with motion detection and would like your guidance. I really love the software but it's a bit overwhelming at first. I'm sure I'll get more comfortable as time goes on. Are there some recommend settings for object size, contrast...

    Video URLs

    Are there any URLs that would play a video alert. I was thinking of including the URL in an email alert so I can just click on it and it would take me straight the video.

    Email HTML Formating

    I'm creating some notification emails. Can HTML code be used in the email feature? I'm trying to format the font size but am having trouble.

    Hardware and software recommendations

    Downloaded BI last night and am running with the demo for a few days before pulling the trigger. I have to say at first glance its an amazing piece of software. Overwhelmed at the moment with all the options but enjoying the experience.

    PC drives

    Just installed a WD Blue SSD as my Win10 OS drive. Original boot time with an HDD spinner 1min 25sec. New boot time with WD Blue SSD 13sec. Amazing. I'm so pleased . The PC is really responsive now.

    Many thanks... I don't know much about PC's. I thought a 2.5inch WD Purple would be good as I could get that a s another 2.5 inch SSD to run the OS in the same caddy. I think my existing drive is a 3.5inch. would that caddy also take a 5.25inch I've got alot to learn.

    PC drives

    My Dell Optiplex 9020 SFF i7 arrived today. Seems to be a fast little machine. It came with a 500gb hard drive. I want to get rid of that and have two drives. A 240gb SSD for the OS and then a much large drive for the video files. I've got limited space in a SFF machine but was wondering if...
