    Picture trailing in live view

    Try shutting off hardware acceleration. Foscam, and I believe Wansview, use crappy firmware that varies fream, iframe and bit rates towhat they deem appropriate no matter what you set them for in the camera configurations. That will result in all sorts of problems with BI because BI depends...

    A morning visitor

    Caught this guy this morning. He ran across the street west of here then ran east through our yard. He timed it just right crossing the street. Two seconds later and he'd have been road pizza.

    Reolink outside install

    If you think you'll install four cameras get a sixteen port NVR or PoE switch if you use a VMS like Blue Iris. Three rules Rule #1 - Cameras multiply like rabbits. Rule #2 - Cameras are more addictive than drugs. Rule #3 - You never have enough cameras.

    Recommendations on a home ip camera setup

    :welcome: The problem with systems from a big box store is that all the cameras are the same and usually 2.8mm lenses. They give you a nice wide, panoramic style, view but are useless for identifying anyone further than eight or ten feet away. Some of the newer systems do have good low light...

    Reolink outside install

    The 5442 series of cameras by Dahua is the current "king of the hill". They are 4MP and capable of color with some ambient light at night. The 2231 series is a less expensive alternative in 2MP and does not have audio capabilities, no built in microphone, but is easier on the budget. The...

    Reolink outside install

    Simplest solution is not to install Reolink. They are not worth the time or effort due to the firmware Reolink uses which limits bit rates, frame rates, iframe rates and shutter speeds to what they "think" is right. Result is blurred motion. When selecting a camera look for video with motion...

    What brand and model cameras? What are the exposure, frame rate, bit rate and iframe rates? Have you tried without hardware acceleration or tried the plain version of the Intel acceleration?

    I see Creepy, Sleepy, Crooked Joe wants Blinken in his Cabinet. Wasn't Blinken one of Robinhood's sidekicks in "Robinhood:Men in Tights"?

    Sale tax on BI Maintenance

    NJ is particularly good at putting their hands in everyones pockets, collecting more taxes and wasting it all.

    "Alerts" List Is Empty? ***Resolved***

    Make sure you've selected "Alerts" in the new drop down list both on the BI console and in UI3 (if you're using UI3). If you happened to click, accidentally, on"ONVIF" of something else it might be the problem.

    Hardware Dedicated Blueiris PC? is it a Good Deal ?

    With substreams you won't need the Nvidia card assuming Quicksync is available. Win10 Pro is the preferred OS.
