    PC's with embedded UEFI Windows COA

    Does anyone know if I buy a PC that has a Windows 8 COA embedded in the UEFI BIOS from factory, am I able to install Win10 or Win7 with the proper license or is it limited to what's registered in the BIOS? Thx!

    Generic Chinese 20x PTZ IP Cam Substream

    Has anyone figured out how to get a substream working in BI from a generic Chinese ebay 20x PTZ? BI detects the cam as IPC/Cantonk and they work fine with that but only use the main stream. If I manually configure them as generic/onvif, I can get BI to use the substream but none of the PTZ...

    Camera Motion Recording 00 seconds

    I recently added a new camera and the triggered motion recordings in the BI console come up as 00 seconds and when I try to play them then say not found. If accessing through UI3, it shows the actual duration of the clip (10 seconds) but when the clip is clicked on to play, it keeps saying the...

    It seems BI resets/clears the system message when it restarts. Is there a setting to keep all messages until manually cleared?

    BI Message: "Your license is not authorized to use this version."

    I see this message in the status window of BI: "Your license is not authorized to use this version." Why am I getting it if I have a valid license? And now after an update I have the overlay of "evaluation version" and can only update to the latest critical stable version.

    BI & Plate Recognizer

    I noticed BI writes the plate #'s it receives from plate recognizer into the status/messages screen. Is there any way to get that to a text file with a date stamp?

    Schedules - How To ?

    Can someone give me a quick run down on the BI "schedules" tab within a specific camera? If I want said camera to have profile 1 from 6am to 8pm and profile 2 from 8pm to 6am, how would I set that in schedules? On the timeline, which color should it appear during the day and how do I get it to...

    Is anyone running a generic Chinese 20x PTZ and BI?

    I have an unbranded generic Chinese 20x PTZ IP cam for many years that's been working well with BI. Lately the live view seems to be "lagging" or freezing up every few seconds in the BI console and the UI3 interface. I haven't changed anything that I am aware of except for doing some BI updates...

    Motion Sensor and Cloud Shadows

    I searched the help file but I do not see anything for the setting under Object Detection that says "reset detector when: Object exceeds X % ". What should that be set at and can that help eliminate triggers due to clouds and shadows from sunlight changes?

    OpenALPR Local Install?

    Has anyone installed OpenALPR locally? If it's open source we should be able to get it and adapt locally to what we need. I am seeing older sites with scripts for windows installs and linux. If it can be compiled or installed locally, it would eliminate the need for the cloud subscription...

    Bullet Cam Mounting Procedure

    First time Dahua bullet cam owner here. All my other cams are Hik turret's. Is there a "trick" or certain procedure to mount a Dahua bullet cam (IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E) or do you just screw the whole thing up in one piece?

    Any Day Traders?

    Tell me if my logic is correct: As an example, Boeing shares (BA) were down to around $90 last week, now are hovering at $182. If I would've dumped 25k on them last week, this week I'd have almost double my money if I sold out? Is it that easy?

    Replacing Hik NVR hard drives

    If I want to upgrade both my drives to larger sizes, can I just swap them both and be good to go? Or does any part of the Hik config and linux system reside on the hard drives and I would lose all that and have to set it up again?

    BI 5 & Plate Recognizer

    Has anyone successfully deployed plate recognizer in BI 5 with no false readings from either BI overlays or camera OSD's? As mentioned in other threads, PR gets hits off of numbers and letters on screen (not plates) and wastes the number of per month requests that can be made, rendering is...

    Daisy Chain an NVR?

    Anyone ever try and daisy chain a Hik NVR? Is it even possible? For example, you have an 8 channel and you maxed it out. You buy a 4 channel, remove one cam from your 8ch, plug the 4ch into your original 8 channel, will the original 8ch NVR see the second NVR as a "camera" with multiple channels?

    NVR Hard Drive Sizes

    If using more then one HD in an NVR, is it recommended to keep the drives the same size? I would assume they should also be the same manufacturer and model as well.
