On-screen alerts are fine, but what if you are sipping margaritas on a Caribbean beach? Never fear, notification can also be sent via pager or email. All you need for the pager notification is a modem and the number of the pager being dialed. (Just hope, your intruder doesn't cut the phone line!)
Email notification is also easy to do. You need just need to input the SMTP (mail server) information and the email addresses to which you want to the alerts sent. For both email and pager notifications, we highly recommend that you tune your alert thresholds carefully; otherwise, it is very easy to get flooded with pages and emails.
