After purchase, you will receive an email from Sentry with a Blue Iris activation code. You will then have to go onto Blue Iris’ site to download the Blue Iris installer. Once you follow through with the installation of Blue Iris, you will be able to use the activation code provided from the email to activate your version of Blue Iris.


Once you are logged into Blue Iris, you will need to go to the “Trigger Dialogue” and check the Smart Alerts checkbox to activate Smart Alerts. Please note your Sentry ID number as this will be important in our final step. The final step is to verify that you are part of the Smart Alerts family. Simply fill out this form (you will need your name, email, and Sentry ID) and you’re on your way to having Smart Alerts!
