      Hi Blake, if you open the app and go to the alarm manager do you have any messages there? Sometimes you have to go into your phone settings and allow the app to notify you. So if you open MontavueGO and tap the menu icon in the upper left-hand corner and then select alarm manager you should see any messages that have been sent to the app. If you have messages here then the issue is in your phone settings. If you do not have any messages in here then please let me know and we can attempt to further diagnose the issue you are having.

      Hi Vito,

      To subscribe to push notifications you will go to the main menu of the APP. You will do this by tapping the house icon in the upper left if you are not already there. Then at the very bottom of the screen, there are 4 icons. You are going to tap the icon that says message. Then tap the icon in the upper left. It will either look like a bookmark icon with a plus in it or a bell icon with a plus in it. You will then select your NVR whatever you named it. Then turn on the switch. Then from the menu options select the type of notification you are wanting to receive. Like Motion detect or IVS. Once you have tapped on the type of notification you would like to get you will then see a list of your cameras. Checkmark the cameras you would like to receive notifications from. Once you have selected the cameras that you want. Then tap the arrow in the upper left to go back to the screen with all of the options. Then tap the save icon in the upper right-hand corner. Note that you must have enabled motion or set up a tripwire on the NVR before receiving any notifications.
