    Make spotter cam move to PTZ preset ONLY IF and when....

    I have mine set up to move the camera from the alert tab and not the trigger tab. It is done from the triggering camera settings, not the PTZ camera setting. That way on AI confirmed alerts trigger the PTZ to move. If you need more help let me know and I can post screenshots.

    AMD cpus recommended for Blue Iris machine

    Are you utilizing substreams? What is the resolution and FPS of the cameras? Are you direct to disk? Saying you are using Ryzen is great, but we need more details in order to truly understand BI performance on Ryzen.

    Stumped as to why Blue Iris Android app via OpenVPN will not connect

    Can you access other services and computers while connected to the VPN? Have you tried to ping the PC from your phone with the VPN connected? I have OpenVPN set to just run everything on my phone through the VPN. If you edit the VPN Config (the pencil icon next to the Profile), go to routing...

    Blue Iris App vs Remote VPN

    Use both. VPN into the network then use the phone app to access BI. This increases network security by reducing holes in your network. You aren't relying on port forwarding and the BI webserver for security, but the VPN software. Not knocking Ken, but a lot more security focused eyes are on the...

    New Blue Iris Trigger Option Debate

    I would just like to add that, while the Deepstacks AI is miles ahead of your basic motion detection set-up it is not infallible and can absolutely miss events. 24/7 recording is still recommended vs motion (or AI) based recording. I don't think that is going to change for a long time. AI will...

    Looking for automation around temperature monitoring

    ESPhome on arduinos dumping into home assistant is a super easy way to get something up and running. Hardest part for me was finding a good guide to walk a noob through putting the ESPhome package on the nodemcu's.

    Smoking Weed In The Street

    As opposed to sitting on the curb drinking a beer? I really don't see how one is much worse than the other.

    [tool] [tutorial] Free AI Person Detection for Blue Iris

    That's not true at all. It just means there was nothing in the image that falls within the detection criteria for that camera. The whole point of the AI Tools/Deep Stack setup is to take away the alert decision from BI. For that to happen you need to make sure AI Tools/Deep Stack doesn't miss...

    Edit: I see in #501 and #502 discussions about the changes to urls. Is that what's breaking the program> Did the latest update of BI change something in the URL triggering? I started getting this message after updating BlueIris to [28.05.2020, 12:17:24.308]: ERROR: Could not trigger...

    Use a non-standard port like 82 or something. I have found using port 80 can cause weird conflicts since that the normal web server port.
