    Blue Iris UI3

    So I got it all working thanks to @wittaj and @Mike A. I originally had NetTime installed but didn't have the option checked to allow other computers to sync to it, and in my troubleshooting I had disabled NetTime. On top of that, I still had the Windows Time service running. In addition to...

    Blue Iris UI3

    I switched all my cameras and POE switch over to a second network card for security purposes and now I've recognized an issue with the time settings on all my cameras. I use the internal timestamp overlay from each camera instead of using an overlay from Blue Iris due to the large number of...

    Blue Iris UI3

    Once again, forum members helped me out! I got a USB to ethernet adapter for my laptop ($14) and now everything is back up and running as it should be and my time lapse computer is pulling the images just fine. Thank you all for your help!

    Yep, since the movies tend to be 50MB to 100MB, I'd prefer to not use the wifi as my second network source. So, I ordered a USB to ethernet adapter and it should be here tomorrow. I'll let you know if that solves the problem. Thanks!

    Hmmm. So if I do that, I'm guessing that I would set it on the same 192.168.200.x LAN and plug the other end of the ethernet cable into the POE switch as well? Is that right? My time lapse computer is a laptop but I'll see if there is a way to add another ethernet port (maybe through USB?).

    Well, it took me a while (life got in the way) but I finally got around to adding the second ethernet card and getting all 20 of my cameras moved over to the new private LAN and separate poe switch. I want to thank everyone here for helping guide me through this. I hope that I can contribute...

    Blue Iris UI3

    I am currently setting the BI computer and all the cameras with a static IP assigned from the router, but I can change that. I never tried this before because I always thought that I wouldn't be able to access the web interface from any of my LAN computers except the BI machine. Now I know...

    OK, great. I think I follow that. So the internet side NIC on the BI computer would get it's IP info and subnet from the router via DHCP. Since the second NIC is not connected to a router (only to the POE camera switch), do I set the camera subnet within the NIC IPv4 properties like this...

    Maybe clear as murky water. I'm also wanting to try this more secure setup but I have been apprehensive because by BI computer is a headless system in a closet and I access the camera feeds through the UI3 web interface from several computers on my LAN. So if I understand you correctly, I...

    loss of flagged clips when upgrading from v4 to v5

    I have two v4 blue iris installations and I recently upgraded the "less critical" one to v5 following all the directions to export my v4 settings first, and so forth. Unfortunately I still had a number of problems upgrading including losing my cameras and settings. After numerous attempts and...

    I've been using this tweak for a while now but I didn't know the trick to remove the part about the connection not being secure, so thanks @bp2008 for that added bonus. Now to tag onto that, I added the "?group=" parameter so that it opens up the group that I want too, like this: "C:\Program...

    Blue Iris Tools - Weather Overlay, Watchdog & more!

    Select NO. Uncheck the Check for updates option. Exit the program, and reboot. BIT should continue to work, or at least it did for me and other members here.

    trigger only adjacent cameras?

    I'm using version 4 and I was thinking that I read somewhere in the forum that you can't have just one camera in a group (and have the group work properly), but I will try it.

    trigger only adjacent cameras?

    Greetings, I am trying to figure out if there is a way to trigger only adjacent cameras. I'm familiar with the ability to trigger groups, but what about individual cameras? Here is the setup. Assume the property is a rectangular house with 3 cameras on each side (12 total) covering the left...
