    Blue Iris Tools - Weather Overlay, Watchdog & more!

    I still follow this thread, 1.60 never worked right for me, I just follow this thread, see if a newer versions ever comes up. I know the guy does this free & so I do miss it but accept for whatever reasons that version just has some compatibility issues with some PC's. I suspect there is still...

    Looking for the "perfect" IP PoE camera for maximum coverage with limited height considerations

    I think "Dumpster cam" will have some issues (too many snoopers). I came to a compromise & aided with a neat idea from my brother. We collect the magnets off of failing hard drives (the old spinning types, the magnets are impressively strong). Screwed them onto a piece of 2x4 & bolted the...

    Looking for the "perfect" IP PoE camera for maximum coverage with limited height considerations

    Yeah, redeploy the bullet camera to the garage & then add a dome/turret up in the top of the other garage overhang (pink zone).

    Looking for the "perfect" IP PoE camera for maximum coverage with limited height considerations

    We've had many issues here with "roaming types", multiple vehicle break-in's, had vagrants bat it down for no reason as they pass by. The front cameras I managed to protect & have good view. I think relocation is the only solution, back against the first (primary) garage behind the gate post &...

    Looking for the "perfect" IP PoE camera for maximum coverage with limited height considerations

    It was a 2.8 mm lens, I didn't mention vendor as resolution (& apparently lens) I thought would be sufficient (& not to dish the vendor as I made the assumption, my ignorance is more of a factor). Yes, that is the debatable aspect, will they tamper with them? In the front they did & I got a...

    Looking for the "perfect" IP PoE camera for maximum coverage with limited height considerations

    I've tried dome & bullet style (currently using a bullet with 3840 x 2160 resolution) & I cannot seem to find a camera that when mounted 9 1/2 ' high to effectively cover a 30 ' x 30 ' space with an immediate 90 degree down angle (to cover gate) & extend to cover two vehicles parked in the back...

    Blue Iris UI3

    Yes, applied manually, works much better (as it should / did). Very quick response, I presume the fix took longer! Thanks.

    let's not forget there is account lock out settings as well for any brute force attacks. Also I think most have a base user (non admin) for remote viewing / monitoring ...

    Oh please .... :) VPN is only as good as the unit running the agent. Also if you travel in places like China & IRAN, VPN is useless, you're better off using SSL.

    Yeah I think most expose the web interface out, that is why the SSL options came in a while back ...

    Blue Iris UI3

    Oh yes I typically stream playbacks @ 4x, simple reason if I am just reviewing the night before & taking a look. I find 8x or higher you can miss critical nuances to what actually triggered the camera.

    Blue Iris UI3

    Yes I had passed on a few builds & thought maybe time to do an update. I don't like getting too far back in builds, sometimes that has cause for concern & the odd time there is a security issue that may have come up, so all of us, as you & your build tend to try & stay reasonably up to date...

    Blue Iris UI3

    Right, this is 5.3.2.7 & UI3 build 118 though, like I said this issue is new. I "could have bandwidth issues" however when I look at "new issues" in any tech I support, I usually go to "what changed? " as the starting point to trouble shoot. All else seems stable enough, just the streaming >...

    Blue Iris UI3

    I had missed a couple build, just went up to it & I have noticed if I exceed playback > 2x of recorded video I get video stream warnings now. never before. I think 6x option for playback is new, it was just 2x,4x,8x etc. ? Well it all works fine with that exception, curious if anyone else...

    Excruciating slow playback of exported MP4 file

    I've never had to change the default "export 0" set up, what I export has always been fine & played back fine. Even now, 3/4 still export & play just fine. I have a new H265 camera I run 2592 x 1944 15fps. I basically export 0 50 % default setting with hardware acceleration (Nvidia) enabled. 30...
