Thx The author of BI sent this - It's a bit of a quandary... technically services have no interaction...

    Amcrest ip2m-841 2-way audio

    not much of a difference. What are you guys using - are you disabling filter and what are you setting speaker volume at? Also i'm guessing mic volume refers to what I hear back on the blue iris side correct?

    Amcrest ip2m-841 2-way audio

    yes that's configured correct too. Even using the mic button on the blue iris console doesn't work. I am beginning to think something needs to be checked at the amcrest camera end in settings. Does anybody know if any setting needs to be enabled for mic to work?

    Amcrest ip2m-841 2-way audio

    I can certainly hear live audio from the camera and the green speak icon stays on my mobile app. I just can't talk. When I click on the mic button, the button turns green and stays green but nobody can hear me at the camera end

    sorry but i don't remember how hdd's show space in windows. Should I set stored folder to 90% of 8001 megabytes or 7.27 TB i.e. 7200mb or 6500mb Also as a side question, does one need to pay for BI annual support to get minor software updates within v5 - I'm guessing it's required but just...

    8TB WD Purple - how much free space to keep?

    Folks - are most of you keeping 15% free space on your surveillance hard drives to run it efficiently or no need with Windows 10 OS these days? I want to make sure I'm setting my clips and archiving setting correctly but of course maximize how many days the recordings are kept. In windows, the...

    That's a brilliant idea. I am wondering if I would get deep discounts at Thanksgiving or if it's only going to be 15% lower than I might as well buy the drive now and set everything up

    Blue iris cheap hardware

    I already have a eight terabyte hard drive but I'm planning to add another 12 terabyte and maybe wait for Thanksgiving sales. When I get it should I simply add it as a different volume or try to combine both drives into a single volume and drive

    IR Day and night - 5231Z-RE

    any function to accommodate for sunrise/sunset times since they vary widely between summer and winter? Or should I simply set it to a day/night profile with day being 7am-7pm and then the sensors will be intelligent enough in June for e.g. here in the north east to stay in color (non-IR mode)...

    Dahua day/night switch utility - DahuaSunriseSunset

    guys - this is a very long thread and have read a few pages. Am I accurate in saying that even today, Dahua cameras like the 5231 don't have the ability to turn on IR at a specific time and I'll have to use an external utility running on Windows to do this? Thx
