    Blue Iris Tools - Weather Overlay, Watchdog & more!

    I posted a project on Upwork.com and hired a developer to make me a custom app with a front end GUI that is going to use the API key and web link to write what I want to a text file the same as BIT does. Cost me forty bucks, I'll post it when its done.

    I think you can sign up for a free Wunderground account and acquire a free API key and pull the weather data from any other PWS or station that has an ID. Or if that is not possible, I am sure Mike is working on other options as well. Edit: scratch that, I just confirmed you can't get a free...

    I think for the average lay person, the easiest way is for Mike to reconfigure BIT on the next update with an input field so we can use our personal API keys and let BIT do the same thing its been doing, just making sure the # of calls per minute and per day are within the new limits set by WU...

    I've been paying attention. As I understand it, WU has discontinued free commercial access to the API keys. You can still obtain a free personal API key from within your WU account to use with your own PWS. Additionally, if you are a commercial customer, you can also pay for a commercial access...

    You can get a free API key from WU for personal use of your own PWS data.

    If you mean pull forecast data from a weather.com city's official report, that's a no go for me and I am sure for others as we want the data from our own stations where the cameras and stations are located.

    BI on iphone using OpenVPN

    It works anywhere else but at my FIL's house, which is on the same ISP as I am. Even before I set up OpenVPN, he could not connect using the BI app when on his Wifi. Something must be blocked through the ISP.

    BI on iphone using OpenVPN

    Hi, recently setup OpenVPN on my network, everything works fine on my Android phone with the BI app. However, on an iphone, I can successfully connect to my network via openvpn but the BI app does not connect to the BI server. It comes back with "unable to make connection, check server address"...

    Which Hik model NVR's are these equivalent to? I don't seem to see NVR3208 or NVR3216 current Hik models, are these the 76/77 series models?

    Review-IPCT-NVR3208-8P-I2 Network 8ch POE NVR

    Are these 8 channel NVR's limited to 8 physical cameras? For example, if I would not be using the physical POE ports on the NVR and I already had a private IP POE network with my cameras on and I had more then 8 cameras, would I need an NVR with more channels or can I configure more cameras...
