    Blue Iris Tools not detecting that Blue Iris is down

    I am running BI 5.3.7.12 x64 (Not as a service) and suddenly BI Tools is not restarting BI after it goes down. BI Tools show that BI has been found. However BI Tools still indicates that BI is running, even though Windows Task Manager shows that it has been killed. Any ideas on what is...

    Disable alerts based upon temperature/weather?

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'll look into the http commands. I do have the global schedules relative to sunrise/down, but do not know how to set the individual camera (overrides global) schedule relative to sunrise/down. Regrettably the fog/condensate covers the entire zones of both cameras :(

    Disable alerts based upon temperature/weather?

    My next door neighbor's behavior has changed and large number of alerts are generated. Long story short: new family moved next door, runs dryer at night, cold weather causes a fog/condensate that triggers motion sensor. I've changed the two affected camera's individual schedules to ones with...

    Need more POE ports, can I just add a second POE switch?

    Here is what my first switch plugs into TP-Link 5 Port 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet Switch | Desktop Ethernet Splitter | Ethernet Hub |, my BLue Iris computer also plugs into it.

    Need more POE ports, can I just add a second POE switch?

    Thanks! So your second poe switch just plugs into one of the first switch's regular ethernet ports? My first switch has 8 poe ports and 2 regular ethernet ports.

    Need more POE ports, can I just add a second POE switch?

    I have an unmanaged 8-port switch and need two more ports. Would there be any problems/secrets in adding a second unmanaged 8-port switch? The second switch would connect to the same Ethernet hub the first switch uses. (I found a few posts but I wanted to double check). TIA

    Easy way to trigger the Inactivate schedule?

    Whow! I didn't realize the uI3 interface had that. As the great golfer Roberto De Vicenzo said after signing an incorrect scorecard that cost him the Master's tournament "What a stupid I am". Thanks!!!

    Easy way to trigger the Inactivate schedule?

    If I'm working outside I'd like to enable the Inactive schedule via a smart phone without having to use my laptop to log in to BI's administrative interface. I suppose the more general question would be how to enable a particular schedule because you'd like to enable the proper one when you are...

    Heat Tolerant WiFi Camera for Attic installation?

    Surprisingly enough I have an IP2M-841 that I'm currently using and was hoping to upgrade :), Perhaps treating it as disposable is the best bet?

    Heat Tolerant WiFi Camera for Attic installation?

    I have a rat problem, there I said it. They are in my attic. I'm trying to get recommendations for a heat-tolerant wide-angle (PTZ preferable) , wifi camera to put in my attic. I'd put an older Foscam indoor camera up there and it lasted a couple of years and then died. I'm now looking for a...

    Transformer Hiding/Location (or camera suggestion)?

    Thanks a bunch. I'll probably do that, but let me get some additional info. Where would the transformer typically be? Inside the house or in some outside enclosure? I'm just trying to understand how something like this is usually done. BTW - I still want to look into the powerline adapter...

    Transformer Hiding/Location (or camera suggestion)?

    Southern, Thanks. I'll look into power-line adapters but the electrical in that part of the house goes into a subpanel that feeds into my main breaker box. My Blue Iris and PoE switch are on an even different subpanel. I've heard that this is frequently problematic for power-line adapters...

    Transformer Hiding/Location (or camera suggestion)?

    I have one outdoor camera to install that would be a Very Major pain for PoE (which the rest of my cameras are), so for this one I'm going wifi. I can easily run 110v to the location - but as far as I know there are no 110v-powered cameras - if there is such a beast I'd love to know. What are...
