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

    this is not part of the alerts problem but you need to rethink the allocation on the f drive. Make the F drive the new folder. There is absolutely no reason to have multiple video storage folders on a single drive. I would also recommend that you go o continuous recording for the time being...

    choice of IP camera and their privacy options

    Reolink outside install

    Not sure the purpose of the cameras. But if they are REOLINK send them back. REOLINK cameras are pure useless junk. Mounting cameras on the second level of a house will show you what happened but not who did it. The object is to ID the bad guys and put them in jail...

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

    Did you test with manual creating a "triggered now" alert as described above. I most cases the alert folder is not used. Alerts are just database entries.

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

    Why do you think you have alerts? Do you have motion detection configured in BI. Are you sure it tripped. I get alerts empty when a camera has no motion configured. select the camera right click, select click trigger now. Does it show an alert ? do you have today selected on the calendar ?

    Sale tax on BI Maintenance

    Why is there sales tax on Blue Iris Extended Support and Maintenance 1 year. This is a service and it should not be taxed. The original purchase of the software is taxable as it is a tangible asset.
