Lots of time issues people report have hacked Chinese cameras with modded English firmware which don't support DST.
FYI Gmail SMTP can be hit and miss with certain things. If google thinks something is wrong, it may stop letting some messages thru (but allow the test process to succeed) - if this is happening you'll get an alert e-mail at the address you are trying to send from though
Here is a link to the outlook.com mail settings
Don't forget to enable POP access in outlook.com's settings [actually did you do this for gmail too? I'm only assuming you did as I would think the dahua guide would mention it]
If you are trying to get your NVR to email you on motion detection be careful with this as it can absolutely flood your inbox when some mozzies or bugs appear at night when they get attracted to the IR on the cameras
The time is finally correcting/working!!!
I've just finished setting up the SMTP for outlook email for the Dahua NVR. Hopefully it get's alerted. Will give it a few hours for testing before reporting back.
P.S. Yep, POP I always enabled.
Looks like everything is working along with SMTP 😀. Can't believe it works only using outlook. However, can someone teach me how to set up clip Email Alerts like rather than sending snapshots, it sends video?
Google has disabled email from services that don't do OAUTH - using SMTP with username/password is being removed from their services.
Glad the timezone and time server settings worked together.
