    I bought a WD Red, NAS, Drive for Blue Iris and to return it costs almost $13 on an original purchase price of just over $100. Can I use this for Blue Iris or suck it up and return it?

    OMG - My credit card was charged 29.95 for extended support...

    And I couldn’t be happier. The support and continual updates are worth more than 29.95 in my opinion. I’ve been an extended support customer for some years now.

    IPC-HDW5231R-ZE video settings for Blue Iris

    I ordered some IPC-HDW5231R-ZE cams from Andy and expect to have them on Friday (ordered yesterday, Tuesday). I already have some older Dahua cams and they work with Blue Iris as Generic/Onvif but not with Dahua selected. For those that are using IPC-HDW5231R-ZE cams with Blue Iris, are you...

    I added another camera today for LPR, the one on the left. Don’t have the LPR setup yet, but plan to dive into the topic. For now, the camera is one I had in my bone pile. Plan on researching which camera is best for LPR.

    http JSON not working?

    What I mean by this is that I can issue an http JSON command from a web browser and the command works. If tested under the Alerts, On Trigger, it does not. Nor if motion is detected. I do get the push notifications. When I test it, I get this error:
