    Do you know there is a way to indicate on the snapshot where the triggered occurred?

    @th182 Thank you for these notes. This is cutting down on my false positives.

    UI3: Larger PTZ buttons

    Thanks...my use-case is phone based. The PTZ buttons are a little difficult to use on a large phone screen.

    New IR Icon in app?

    I’ve never seen this icon before. The IR light with the letter A. Is this new to BI5? What does it signify?

    UI3: Larger PTZ buttons

    Hi guys. Is there a setting allowing the PTZ buttons in the UI3 interface to be larger?

    Bought wrong computer, need more drive bays

    @windguy Cutting losses is a consideration. She has an i5-6500. It’s plenty of machine for my BI needs. But before I go through the hassle of moving her to a new box I’m hopeful I can find an appropriate drive cage.

    Bought wrong computer, need more drive bays

    @crw030 it has several open SATA headers on the board. My intention was to use it as my BI computer. Now instead, I’ll swap it with my wife’s SFF. I need to SFF so it fits in its intended home. I need the number of drives to support the back up regime for mine and my wife’s boxes (not the BI...

    @Barboots Thank you for your snide remarks and unhelpful comments. Please do not participate in my threads.

    Bought wrong computer, need more drive bays

    @IAmATeaf Thanks. Were you using standard cases? Or proprietary Dell/HP cases? The smaller proprietary cases are different sizing than the aftermarket towers and rack mount cases. If your server case was 4U or a large PC case, that makes things much easier even if it it is proprietary. It would...

    Bought wrong computer, need more drive bays

    @Barboots thank you for your feedback. Do you have a suggestion on how to install generic drive cages from junk towers into a proprietary micro tower?

    Bought wrong computer, need more drive bays

    That’s looks like the MT to me. In the video that empty space next to the 3.5” drive caN hold another 3.5” drive. In my box, there is a welded/riveted piece of metal for the 2.5” drive that can’t be removed. If I could find the cage in that video it would fit my need. Attached is what my cage...

    Bought wrong computer, need more drive bays

    @concord Thanks. Yes, I can add one to the 5.25” bay. I’m hoping to find a way to add another 3.5” in the space for the 2,5” drive, or another cage.

    Bought wrong computer, need more drive bays

    I meant to by a HP SFF…accidentally bought a MicroTower (HP ProDesk 600 G4 MT). It is a perfectly good machine, but it’s too big for the space I intended for it to live. Since I’m stuck with it, I want to put a couple of extra hard drives in it. I can put one in the 5.25" ODD slot, but there...

    Temporary pause in the app

    Edit: I think I just found the temp setting under profiles

    Temporary pause in the app

    When I use the traffic signal or the profiles I have to manually reinstate them. Is there a way to make them reinstate themselves after a set time?

    Temporary pause in the app

    Hiya. Is there a way to pause alerts and notifications temporarily? Say, set it to back to the green light after 2 hours?

    Best value / performance PTZ for home usage?

    @chewie Which camera did you end up with?

    Setting up a subnet

    I just received my managed switch. Probably tomorrow I'll start digging in and learing how to use it. When I create my vLan, will I likely be able to segment a set of the ports to virtually separate the network? Say ports 30-48, and accomplish the same as having a separate physical switch? Now...

    Using Coax Seal Tape

    I got my Coax Seal tape. Now that I've used it...I get it. Its fairly awesome. For my bullets, instead of using a junction box, can I wrap the connections in Coax Seal tape, then wrap the Coax Seal with electrical tape for UV protection? This is not a professional installation, and the...

    Camera Power Usage - should I be using more?

    Hiya. I used a POE power meter and checked out the power usage of my cams. The daytime wattage number is as expected; the night time wattage numbers are surprisingly low. Should I be happy about this? Or should I be using more power and getting brighter IR lights out of my cameras? It is...

    Need substitute for SD1A404XB in doorway

    I’m fine with the lighting. There is a plug right there so I was thinking about putting in an IR light. My concern was that I paid for a PTZ, and when I asked for mounting feedback I was asked to move it further into the doorway, so the panning was negated. I’ve got a better spot for it in the...

    Need substitute for SD1A404XB in doorway

    The point for my request is that there is no. Red to use a PTZ in a narrow doorway. I would move it up, but the forward position did not satisfy thE WAF requirements. I need a smaller, discrete camera for this location.

    Hiya. Bumping myself to up. Vendors feel free to reach out to me with suggestions.

    New to managed switches

    @griffths thank you for the decibel reading. Do you think it would gain a positive WAF 10 ft from the dinner table running 10 POE cameras? And, do you know if the fans can be unplugged or swapped out for other fans?

    New to managed switches

    I need to buy an additional POE switch for my toys. It looks like I can save room in my rack using a 1U enterprise grade switch instead of buying another dumb switch. I've not used a managed switch before. There seem to be some great deals out there. Can y'all tell me of any gotchas I need to...

    Rails for 2 Post Racks

    I installed a 2 post wall rack...now I I want to install rails for a 4U case and a shelf. Without posts in the back, do I need to bolt the back of the rails to the plywood, or can I go without and rely on the front rail bolts to hold the rails? Thanks for your feedback. If anyone in DFW has a...

    Sending events from camera to Blue Iris

    Thanks. I found online specs that elude to it, but would you know if it will natively hold a 2.5” and a 3.5” drive without having to get a another drive cage? I had a hard time finding one for my wife’s dell. I need up finding the cage and velcroing the 2.5” to the power supply.
