    Biggest problem is:
    entered api for pushover.
    test is successful. Result is sound on phone.

    did successful installed email notification.

    On motion detection camera, I receive an email but no sound notification.

    Did several attempts last year but does not want to work. Today tried it with the install off BI for Android....no succes.

    Any tips?

    kind regards
    Kees

    I think you may be confusing BIT alerts with BI alerts? BIT does not give push notifications for motion alerts, the only alerts it will give is via the Watchdog.

    What are you trying to accomplish? Blue Iris Tools, Alexa and Blue Iris are 3 different things

    What I want:
    On motion detection a push message to my phone.

    What I saw in the setup that adding phones is done through Alexa

    added two screenshots of my setup.

    Push notifications sent to a phone based on motion is accomplished by setting it all up in Blue Iris.....period.
    No Alexa or Bitools required.
    It's all in the help file. Find an online translator to run the help file through.
