Email Setup

The RPS-NODE-9255Wifi can notify you via email when the system boots up. Additional options allow for the RPS Unit to send notifications when the current or temperature settings are exceeded. This option is configured in the Advanced Settings Button located at the top of the power control screen.

Options are available for using the mail services of gmail, hotmail along with OTHER to use your own SMTP Mail server. Standard email configuration is shown in the picture. You can test your setup by using the EMAIL TEST button for sending email.

The device also allows you to control the power on / off status of the power port by email. The unit will check your email account for a properly configured email message. Once found, it will act on the instructions in the email.
