    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    Magic, I knew I’d seen something like this. Will give it ago later, thanks!

    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    Seems to be fine. However, doing it this way, seems to ignore/nuke the BLC settings on the cameras. Any ideas how I might be able to retain BLC config from the camera, and/or pass those variables via Blue Iris? On a couple of my cameras I have the BLC offset to oneside to increase brightness in...

    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    All seem to have transitioned correctly to IR ON via Blue Iris (regardless of Camera config), so lets see what the morning brings.

    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    Have changed one Cam to 'day' and the others to Auto. I'm wondering if the camera 'knows' its been triggered by an external source and just ignores its inbuilt config... we'll see I guess

    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    If I set it to Day/Night, do I not run the risk, of the "Camera" thinking it is still Day, even after BI has turned LEDs off (and the camera then turns the LEDs on again?)

    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    I'm looking to switch to having BI control my IR cut over, as I can relate the switching ON/OFF of LEDs with Sunrise/Sunset. If/when I do this, how do I then prevent my Hikvision cameras from 'fighting' with BI and contradicting my settings? Blue Iris Config Hikvison Camera Config

    What's your Blue Iris Setup like? (List Specifications)

    I live in the UK............. where we use real money (Celcius). And have stupid ass weather -- welcome to our summer time! And correct. CPU temp, I'm not worried about at all. Though in our hottest days (30 degrees C outside) the room can reach 50, which means CPU gets to 60-70, which is not...

    What's your Blue Iris Setup like? (List Specifications)

    With the ability to use sub streams, I'm actually looking to massively downsize my system, if for nothing more than a kWh saving. Though there's that age old problem or spending to save. A new setup, would most likely never pay for itself with the savings -- but as a techie, new toys are nice :)...

    Wrong Date & Time on some Recordings

    Has this had any impact on your CPU usage?

    5.2.7.0 - RTSP sub-streams for high-MP cameras

    Just watch for changes in motion detection IF you use motion. The pixel mapping from main to sub stream changes, so in most cases you’ll need to reconfigure motion parameters. Zones, object size, object moves X pixels etc

    Unattended hidden BI server

    Similar setup, except I use RDP. Depending on how ‘hidden’ this room is... Having the computer set at BIOS level to ‘auto power on’ after power failure and having ILO/a smart plug, can save so much hassle. Along with Wake on LAN

    5.2.8 - May 20, 2020 - Direct-to-disc BVR recording will now include metadata for video overlays

    Did you have it working prior? I never had any luck, though it was probably back in v4 that I tried this!

    Other than a screwed DB, what is the impact of this?

    5.2.8 - May 20, 2020 - Direct-to-disc BVR recording will now include metadata for video overlays

    I tried that at first but my OCD went mental, having a vertical camera in amongst 7/8 horizontal ones
