    What feature(s) would you like to see in Blue Iris?

    Thanks I tried the chrome shortcut on my phone (S8+), but When I click the shortcut it just sends it into an infinite login loop in chrome? I put in my ID & PW and selected "Log in Automatically", it attempts to log in, showing "logging in" then it says "redirecting" and repeats itself. Not...

    What feature(s) would you like to see in Blue Iris?

    I'd like to see the Android app allow you to add shortcut buttons to individual cameras which would take you to a full screen view of a specific camera. So Instead of having to go into the app, wait for connect, select different cameras, I could just click the "Garage Camera" button or the...

    How much P on a POE slitter?

    So that says, "48V Passive PoE and 12VDC outputs". Does this mean it would power the device connected to the 12VDC plug out but there would no longer be power going to the ethernet out? I would need something that does this but splits the power so both the camera connected to the ethernet...

    Look at all these cameras

    What's with the orange flood lights on during the day? I've seen orange ones next to cameras in parking garages before too. What do they do that a regular flood light or bright IR would not accomplish?

    What’s in your garage ?

    My garage is a similar slightly larger size. I use an American Dynamics Illustration 825 model 5mp fisheye with internal de-warping right in the middle on the ceiling. It covers the entire area with the fisheye view and allows for 4 additional de-warped views. It's like 5 cameras in one and...

    The rant against Ring

    We have a ring doorbell cam on my mom's house and I am very UNimpressed with the performance for all of the reasons mentioned by others and more. Another family member bought it as a gift. She does not have a budget and no one has the time or wants to bother setting up and managing a real...

    Reason 4,986 to lock your doors at all times

    I put my cc on a magnet attached to the underside of the steering column for immediate access in the vehicle. So lots of recent vehicle thefts in "safe" neighborhoods around me too lately. One guy lost his Ferrari...most all of them were not only unlocked but with keyfob IN the car! IMO that...

    How SD card recordings work?

    Local news story a year or so ago caught some bad cops on camera ripping out and destroying a business's cameras and NVR...but they had installed a full 2nd system w tiny hidden cameras. Not as good quality recordings but got the job done in this case. Just another example for backup.

    Mini-PTZ Give-Away Qontest

    My hope for the coming year is that my 20 yr old kitty stays strong and lives long enough for me to install my dahua cams and catch him doing something cute and memorable in the yard. With a mini ptz I could track and zoom him.
