    SmartPSS Mac M1

    Has anyone been able to get SmartPSS to run on an M1 Mac? I still have my old Mac's, but will hopefully deco them soon. I know many people are happy with Security Spy, SightHound, BlueIris, etc.. I have one Lorex DVR and one Dahua DVR and SmartPSS lets me view and playback just fine.

    Deer alert, dog dispatched

    I’ve been progressively improving my system to detect when deer visit my property. As cute as they are I don’t like them eating my fruits and vegetables. So my setup will send an alert to my phone, showing a cropped image, but it also is assigned to a unique tone. My dog has learned the tone...

I'm working on a object detector to give me alerts when animals come for an uninvited visit, and I marked up the frames with what it sees along with the probability. The clip is quite long, so I only include 1 frame per second. The better the...

    DYI setup

    Thought a few people might be interested in my setup. I have 4k Lorex IP camera over my garage to watch my driveway. It's a little high, but I use it to watch for packages, critters, etc.. I have a Jetson Nano using a custom YoloV2 model to detect when a vehicle is in frame. When it sees a...

I’d like for when the camera sees a deer for it to turn on the siren. I’ve read through the dahua api manuals and can’t find anything related to...
