    Can't find the BI UI3 Main Menu... Do I need to install something?

    I have a small tablet that I have monitoring my front door camera. I want it to stay on all the time, but it keeps timing out, and the timeout message says I can adjust the timeout in the UI3 Main Menu - but I'll be damned if I can find it. I thought I read that UI3 was already included in BI...

    Any experience with the Raspberry Pi and IR Camera?

    Thank you for these tips!! :-) I will look into this. However, I probably will not change anything for the next month or so, as the cameras are currently being used to record the progress of some remodeling work that I have going on right now. I don't want to change anything until that...

    Any experience with the Raspberry Pi and IR Camera?

    I'm still a "noob" when it comes to security cameras and Blue Iris, and I'm still learning. I am currently using four Hikvision DS-2CD2032-I via PoE, with Blue Iris running on a fairly decent Win-10 PC with 32GB RAM. Still, I am concerned about the CPU usage. I'm fairly certain that I am...

    Any experience with the Raspberry Pi and IR Camera?

    You could always use a dummy housing like this guy did: http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspberry-Pi-as-low-cost-HD-surveillance-camera/?ALLSTEPS Here is an example from Amazon of a housing that is probably big enough...

    Any experience with the Raspberry Pi and IR Camera?

    I've recently purchased a Raspberry Pi and IR Camera module that I plan on using for a DIY video doorbell. I hope to integrate it into my BlueIris solution. Has anyone here already done this? Have any pointers, etc.? I haven't started the configuration yet, and am still collecting bits and...
