    Backup Configuration

    It exports all of BI's registry entries, so yes it backs up all your cameras settings.

    Windows 7 to 10 upgrade

    If you can ping the BI PC from another PC in the house and if you can ping the cameras, check to make sure the antivirus software is not blocking Blue Iris.

    Would like some help with JSON & vb script

    Wish I could help. I've never been able to read a status with Json. The only thing I've able to read is the traffic light status and the current profile (without Json). Edited to add that you can also read the current main schedule "lock" status. ' here's how you determine if Blue Iris's...

    AI Questions

    Never used AI detection and I was wondering if it would work with black and white thermal images. Also, how close does an object have to be to determine what it is? I'm guessing the object needs to be close as in ones driveway but don't know.

    Verizon router blocking remote access

    That's a problem with the cellular routers. Free TeamViewer or perhaps Remote Utilities will work since the remote computer actually initiates the connection to their server. No ports are forwarded, and dynamic IP address don't matter.

    Motion detection vs replay through MD

    I'm recording 5 seconds pre-trigger, and still those diffuse triggers do not show up when post running the video with motion detection. Not only is no trigger shown, but visually there is usually nothing to be seen that would cause a trigger. I'm running thermal cameras (shades of gray) and I...

    Motion detection vs replay through MD

    "I can replay video through motion detector and things that tripped the detector to cause the video clip to be recorded, do not trip the detector while replaying through it." I've seen it as well. It's not new, it's been a bug for a long time. Seems to happen when a diffuse trigger occurs such...

    Motion detection "on"

    I spent some time optimizing the detection. Between using three thermal cameras (major effect) to trigger four visual light cameras and the different settings depending on time of day (minor effect) , I only get about four false detections a month and my detection area is about 1 acre. I doubt...

    Motion detection "on"

    Yes, in order to minimize false alerts, my detection parameters change four times a day to account for solar angle. "Just set it to always on for every profile in that camera." Yes, that is the jist of the original post. Though it might be lurking somewhere in the cameras settings, I have not...

    Motion detection "on"

    I guess I don't understand. Each camera has different motion detection settings at different times of the day. I could be wrong, but can you do that with a global profile?

    Motion detection "on"

    Well, so much for that idea. Looks like you can't run BI4 and BI3 on the same machine because if one is loaded, the other won't load.

    Motion detection "on"

    Come to think about it, I do have my old BI3 license. If it don't take much resources, guess I'll run the gate camera on BI3 and the rest on BI4.

    Motion detection "on"

    Yeah, I was afraid that would be the case. Having multiple profiles for multiple cameras to start, then having to duplicate those profiles with record and email turned off would get pretty unmanageable pretty fast. Guess I just continue to used the gate cam's sub par built in detection. Thanks

    Motion detection "on"

    Thanks Fendermen, I looked at the your info, but for the life of me, I can't see any settings that would allow the traffic light to control alerts and recordings on all the cameras except one and have that camera always sending alerts, and recordings when triggered. Could you give me a little...

    Motion detection "on"

    Does anyone know if there is a way to have motion detection always "on" on a camera regardless of the "traffic light" status? The reason I ask, is because although most of my cameras motion detection is turned on when it's night or we are away, I'd like to have my gate camera (1/4 mile away)...
