    Forum dark-mode update?

    My eyes tell me that they prefer normal mode on websites.

    IP Camera With HDMI Output

    An interesting development, even better along with the HMDI output if it was also fully IP POE network capable (to connect to BI or NVR), and was waterproof enough to be used outside, it would make a good front door/ back door camera, allowing the placement of a small monitor by the door, or did...

    Elite Desk 800 power question

    On certain HP products there are things in the Bios like Remote Management Capability, AMT, Intel Management Engine (ME) and other software stuff. I accept the Wake on Lan, but saw too the possibility that even with your PC apparently powered down it is not switch off, as in the accepted meaning...

    The whole smelly family.

    Cute, what's not to like?

    Multiple hard disks

    Whilst I read in the Forum many contributor's giving advice that the db goes on the SSD, New on the Hard Drive, this is not what is written in the BI manual. My copy of the manual BI 5 Page 72 has, "Although New and Database should remain on your fastest storage possible because of frequent...

    Video Stutter

    Can you be 100% sure of the integrity of your network connections? You seem to be suggesting you aren't sure of the live feeds. I recently had an video issue caused by a powerlink connection, I'd been cleaning around the network switches and NVR and I must have knocked things. I suggest that you...

    Do you really need a NVR with a small deployment

    $349, are you getting a discount to promote them? Even my 8 camera Hik NVR was cheaper. You got money to burn?

    So what's your playback routine?

    In the mornings I review the triggered clips on the PC running Blue Iris. Mostly I see where the local tom cats transit our property, my aim to reduce false alarms, their aim to hunt and spray their "scent" on our vehicles. This aside, I can see if need to adjust the cameras' trigger...

    Intel Driver Availability

    I would like someone to confirm which current Intel Graphics Driver will deliver to me working QuickSync on Blue Iris for my HP Elite Desk 800 G3 i7-7700 (Kaby Lake), onboard HD Graphics 630. From what I read, Intel are switching from a more direct process of Driver updating using an .inf file...

    Rain causing triggering in Blue Iris, sounds familiar? What did you do?

    What settings have you used to prevent rain causing triggering in Blue Iris, whilst having settings sensitive enough to respond to significant events?

    Connect camera to NVR via powerline adapter?

    Yes that looks promising, but don't just take my word for it.

    Connect camera to NVR via powerline adapter?

    The powerline adapters I've seen don't have POE. It would be news to me if there were any, but it doesn't mean there aren't. POE is a niche market for those with CCTV. It's a matter of sales volume, would a manufacturer recoup their outlay? Only one camera, then use a power brick plugged into...

    Connect camera to NVR via powerline adapter?

    No you don't need a special type of powerline adapter but your cameras will need power, either POE from a suitable NVR, from a POE capable network switch or from a separate power supply connected to the mains. Sited remotely and closer to your camera(s) where you have the 2nd adapter, you have...

    Connect camera to NVR via powerline adapter?

    I use a TP-Link AV2000 based LAN, connecting my NVR and network switches in the loft to wherever in the house is the Blue Iris PC. I've two extra AV2000 units (already paired), for a future project using RPis with TVs display. Recently I had an issue with choppy audio and video, I must have...
