    zone crossing fine tuning

    hi everyone, i recently learned (from this forum) what zone crossing is and I love it. It has changed my life. Thanks to the great videos i have minimized my alerts drastically from the sun and wind. I have one cam that i cannot get to where i want it and was hoping someone might have some...

    need explanation of logs for over allocation errors

    was able to resolve this by moving the 'new' folder to local and then checking the box to NOT monitor NAS for 'stored' files and works great now. Apparently BI does not have an account to access my NAS so I just removed monitoring out of the equation. I already have a tool that monitors files...

    need explanation of logs for over allocation errors

    hi everyone, Blue Iris is working great for me (I think) and i would like to further understand the logs as it appears i have some over allocation errors but i don't know what the problem is. The way I understand things is that i have 3 days of new files on my local drive and then i push them...

    Blue Iris saving images and not video post update

    so i was able to figure this out, I moved the 'new' storage folder locally and then used the 'stored' for my NAS and it works.

    Blue Iris saving images and not video post update

    hey guys, my BI updated a few days ago to the latest release. I think i am on 4.5.8.5 as of June 30th. The odd thing is that it now does not send me the video in mobile platform or desktop, it is simply taking photos now. It was working great before the upgrade. I know the mobile app was...

    Blue Iris motion detection suddenly not working at night!

    thanks to this forum i learned i needed to create a second schedule and i called it night mode. Once i created the night mode I went into one of my cams and cranked up the sensitivity at sunset - sunrise. It works great for me now. I even detect wandering cats and dogs in my front yard at all...

    Blue Iris motion detection suddenly not working at night!

    thanks for the reply, I think i did it but i would like confirmation. I did add my geolocation. I set the slider to the exact time of the sunrise on my night profile and i did get the checkbox. When i hit ok (box closes) and then open the schedule up to view it, the box is unchecked. Is this...

    Blue Iris motion detection suddenly not working at night!

    update from last night... So everything works now (I think). I have the 2nd cam switching automatically with some changes I made after my recent post. I was able to see the cam switch to day mode around 6:30am. I can't seem to find a way to make the sunrise\sunset checkbox active. So I have...

    Blue Iris motion detection suddenly not working at night!

    thanks for your reply and sorry for late posting. So here is what I have uncovered... I can get the cam to record at night when i adjust the sensitivity and contrast; however, that backfires in the day time and the number of false positives i get is out of control. It looks like i can create 1...

    Blue Iris motion detection suddenly not working at night!

    I would like to barge into this conversation as I am on the latest version of BI and my second camera (Hikvison fixed dome cam DS-2CD2142FWD-I) does not record at night either. Well, it records if I pull up in my truck w/ the lights on and pull in the garage. If I walk the dog and come home...
