Protect your live stream by setting a threshold alert

The DaCast account monitor will alert you by email when you have reached a certain amount of Bandwidth (GB) left on your account.

1/ How to set up an alert ?

Step 1 – Go to “Upgrade my plan” and click on “email me when my Bandwidth is low” to set up your limit



Step 2 –  A pop up will display – Read the text and enter the exact limit of GB of bandwidth from what you want to be alerted 


Note : This number must be a round number.


Step 3 – Click save if you want to save the limit


Your limit is set up ! You will receive an alert email when you will reach it.


2/ How to stop receiving emails?

Go to “Upgrade my plan” and click on “email me when my Bandwidth is low”. Click then on “Do not email me”, and you won’t receive email alerts anymore.


3/ Does my limit value change if I upgrade, downgrade, cancel or if I get suspended?

Nothing changes. Changing a plan, cancelling it or suspending it won’t change the limit value.


4/ What is my limit value per default?

Per default, there is no limit set up. You can check it by clicking on “email me when my Bandwidth is low” and see the value per default.

If 0, no limit set up. You won’t receive an alert.


5/ I have a limit default value, why?

DaCast set up a limit value for plans existing before 11/13/2018 to keep on alerting existing customers who were used to receive a Bandwidth consumption alert – You can modify the limit anytime.
