Another thing you may need to configure - is the minimum delay between the sms. This is a common parameter, so it is located in the General Settings window. Click the "Settings" button on the toolbar on the main window.

If the program detects motion, then it sends you sms, after a few seconds. But the movement will continue for some time. Don't you want to get hundreds or even thousands of identical sms messages sent from each moment of movement? That's why we recommend to do not set a value lower than one minute here.
