    American made switch

    I only spent a couple of minutes looking at their site, but they appear to be marketing to industrial and military customers. The products I looked at were hardened (NSA certified) and/or ruggedized. Their "about us" indicates they provide solutions to Traffic, Railway, Security, SCADA, etc...

    Attempted burglary caught on camera in Fort Walton Beach [FL]

    I agree, but this could also be driven by the reporters. Maybe they didn't want to deal with an external file and thought it would be easier to edit by just filming the monitor.

    Street Intersection Cameras...Hmmmmm

    Also a lot of this is unchecked/out of control government spending. It's not like they're spending their own money and as soon as somebody tries to push back on a budget increase, all you hear is "think of the children" or "we need to pay the police" or whatever. Even though nobody is asking...

    $99 Gorilla Ladders 22 ft. Reach MPX Aluminum Multi-Position Ladder with 375 lb. Load Capacity

    These have been on sale at that price a few times over the past year. I got one about 6 months ago and it's GREAT! Not too heavy. Stores pretty small. Stable. Also, have recently seen these "telescoping" ladders. I think the Xtend brand is the main one, but looks like there are knock-offs...

    Dear Admin!!! Love it! Yeah, I know it makes me sound like a "dumb American" and I do realize there is more to the world than just the USA (have traveled to lots of it), but you stated just what I was thinking when I read that. Despite the previous 8 years of "apology tour" by a...

    Any plans on Blue Iris coming to MacOS or Synology Diskstations?

    I'd be interested in a linux based version. Been a Windows user for decades, but have been migrating to linux more and more of late.

    So I just installed OpenALPR and noticed this.......

    Actually, the "N" looks narrower on the back. Is it possible that they squish the font on the back plates? What about the other numbers/letters?

    Review-Dahua SD6CE245U-HNI Starlight PTZ 45x Zoom

    I was reading this as SEVEN alarm inputs and thought that was wrong, but looking at the picture I see lots more wires that my PTZ. So does it really have 7 inputs?

    Review-Dahua SD6CE245U-HNI Starlight PTZ 45x Zoom

    Wow that zoom is amazing! For me, it's great from a cool factor, but really don't have a good location to use it. I'm already maxing out with 25x from my current installation locations and don't have a good place to put a camera that can see up/down a street like that. Still may need to get...

    Snapshot manipulation?

    Python is a pretty fun language to use and could do this pretty easily. A bit of a learning curve, but tons of examples out there to get started and something like this wouldn't require much more than learning a basic python app along with how to process files/folders.

    Newb question ~ Why do you put SD cards in IP cameras?

    I only put an SD card in one camera just to see how it worked, but as prices continue to drop, I'm definitely thinking of adding them to a few more cams. has been showing lots of deals on good quality cards pretty cheap recently.

    FYI - LeChange / Dahua 8x 8MP/4K UHD IP PoE cameras + 16 channel port PoE NVR 2/3TB HDD $899 7/13/18

    The mention of Frys makes me shiver. Actually I do shop there since there's one across the street from work. But I never buy stuff from them which has a rebate. Tons of failures.

    Review-Dahua Hi-fidelity Sound Pickup

    Thanks. Could you give a bit more info as to your overall impressions of the unit, including the sound quality and how it compares to the stock mic or other mic options (assuming you have tried these)? Also, another video with some speech would be great. I know it's annoying to go talk to one...

    CPU usage creeping up slowly

    Thanks so much for this well written solution. Win10 did an automatic update last night and I started having the 100% CPU issue today. Solution works perfect with latest BI ( My system has an Intel 530 based video instead of the 650 mentioned in OP, but fix is still valid.

    Blue Iris UI3

    Yeah, I saw the selector for choosing the Streaming quality, but dismissed it since I was thinking it referred to the various stream channels of my Dahua cam and I knew channel 0 was configured as my highest quality. Didn't expect any fix for the frame drop, just noted that as info in case it...

    Blue Iris UI3

    As expected, I liked the UI appearance, but am having issues with the video quality. The UI3 video is really compressed and blocky, especially when I move a PTZ or select a different camera. Once it becomes a more static image, the quality improves close to that of UI2. I am running on a bit...

    New guy with easy questions for the gurus

    As bp200 says, don't forward your camera ports. Since you indicated you'll be using BI, you can use it to more safely access your system for live and recorded viewing. And you should add the improved BI remote pages that bp2000 created (links in his posts).

    Sync your camera time to your Windows PC.

    Yeah, use that one too and works well...except when you forget about Windows Firewall and it blocks the NTP ports, doh!!!
