There is no way to prevent 2 emails sending for each rule. Just setup a rule in your email to auto delete the one without an attachment.
I do not believe there is a way to limit the number of emails. You could try adjusting the "Record Delay" setting under Event -> IVS
Per the file (also, it now has FLIR in the filename, so might be support for newer cameras as well):

Operation Platform Microsoft Windows XP/Windows 7/Windows 8/Windows 10(32/64 bit)
You may have gained CPU cooling, but you probably have hurt the PoE cooling (if you have a PoE NVR). You may also have inadvertently raised the temperature of nearby components as the heatsink discharge air is being blown across the motherboard components. I'm not saying it is a bad idea, but...
Step 1: Download Internet Explorer 11 or PaleMoon32
Step 2: Connect your computer to the NVR WAN port
Step 3: Access NVR from your home computer on whatever IP address your router assigned
Step 4: Connect your camera to the NVR
Step 5: Go to the camera registration page. It will list the camera...
They will handle a 5,000A pulse with a 8/20uS wave form. It will provide some protection, but a direct or nearby strike will probably smoke right through it (20kA would be better). There is a lot of engineering behind lighting protection and a lot to understand on the specific standards. Here...
Welcome!! You inherited a "not so good" system. Refer to the Cliff Notes in the Wiki above.
What kind of budget do you have?
A Dahua 2231 (assuming you don't want audio recording) will probably be your best bet for low cost, but awesome camera. It's a turret vs. a dome, so it may look a bit...
Couple things to start with:
1. can you power it separately from the NVR and access it? eg. plug it into a poe switch/injector and access the camera directly
2. If you can do 1, are both devices ONVIF compliant?
First see if the camera is even working, then go on from there.
You can get LAN lighting protectors, but you need them on both ends of longer runs (150' or so). You will need to watch out as some of them only have protection on 6 wires vs. all 8 and be sure that you get a POE compatible device. The only real way to protect the NVR is to optically isolate the...
Don't have multiple grounding points. Everything must be bonded together (permanently). Only have 1!!!! A #10 or #12 is not sufficiently sized to help in a lightning strike to dissipate the energy. Multiple grounds means you more than likely have a difference of potential and when that...
