    Cold-resistant NVR/DVR/PC?

    That's an interesting angle, thanks.

    Cold-resistant NVR/DVR/PC?

    Let's say, I'm going to put a NVR/DVR/PC in a box that's protected from water but not from cold. Why do I not care whether it's going be a NVR, DVR or a PC? Because I am looking for a budget cold-resistant solution and everything else will follow from that. Obviously, it's not a problem to find...

    Old clips disappearing sooner than expected

    Thank you, much appreciated. I got confused by the layout simply because there's no checkbox to the left of the 'size limit' control.

    Old clips disappearing sooner than expected

    Thanks. I'm still on BI 4. Regarding the checkbox, you're saying that I can leave it unchecked while putting a number for the size limit and the system will react only to the latter, right?

    Old clips disappearing sooner than expected

    After setting one of my cams to continuous recording AND waiting for a few days, I noticed a weird issue, specifically: If I don't delete any clips from the system, older clips and alerts start disappearing on their own in a couple days, no longer than that. But when I look at the...

    False positives

    Yes. And no. In TinyCam, you can't just reduce the size of that area - you are forced to also position the smaller area within the frame. Doesn't solve much in such cases as mine.

    False positives

    Did some more research. Guess, another update might be in order for those interested in the false positives issue. As a matter of fact, my codecs seem to only be a problem as far as my clip recording ability is concerned. I still get snapshots of events on Android's lock screen. Also, I put the...

    False positives

    FWIW, the alarms are caused by weird artifacts, such as: * image suddenly turning blue, or * image turning blue with a green outline of the scene being visible * image turning black with a whitish outline of the scene visible ....etc. Naturally, such frames get registered as motion. What causes...

    False positives

    PM'd you. Everyone else - guess, I'll post an update once we have meaningful results.

    False positives

    I've been using TinyCam for a few months now, and I think, it's a very well thought-out app. One area that's giving me trouble, though, is false positives. I'll be as specific as I can: In-app motion detection Video source: Blue Iris / v4 / H264 Sensivity: 35 Now, it would make sense to...

    app keeps logging out

    Now, with TinyCam, you want the PRO version (it doesn't cost much at all), since it allows background processing, and do pay attention to the corresponding settings. Best.

    app keeps logging out

    potluckman: NP. I like your way of thinking in that it would make sense to properly identify the one device that doesn't drop the connection. Might I suggest that you focus on identifying the firmware it's running - not as problematic and more promising vs hardware in the sense that you would...

    app keeps logging out

    potluckman: I've done some research..... Android is notorious in regards to background processes. Furthermore, OS developers see it as a feature, not a bug. Why? It extends battery life, it prevents computer-illiterate phone users overloading the phone's RAM etc. etc. That way, phone mfrs can...

    app keeps logging out

    Has anyone seen the app disconnect while in the background? Basically, it logs into the server alright and works the way it's supposed to, but when the phone is left unattended, it blanks out, and after a while I can be sure that the app has disconnected. I tried the Automatically Log In...

    Dahua DVR - timestamp overlay settings?

    I'm trying to manage the timestamps my Dahua DVR includes in RTSP streams. Somehow, there are no timestamps in the DVR's video port output, but they do show up in RTSP. Any ideas, please?
