    Blue Iris UI3

    @bp2008 how does the UI3 dynamic layout work in BI 5.5+? When viewing a group of cameras, it appears to still be a composite stream rendered by BI rather than multiple individual camera streams, but if I resize the browser window the layout changes. Does UI3 send the window resolution (or...

    Watchdog probmems

    @Mike, how frequently does the watchdog service poll the specified server? I just started using Uptime Watchdog this week and it's working great. I noticed I get an email when my server goes down for a reboot, and another after it's back up, so it must be at least every minute or so? Thanks!

    Anyone getting T+0 msec in deepstack analysis Windows?

    Interesting. Yes, I was using hi-res jpeg. Will try DB only and see how it behaves :)

    Anyone getting T+0 msec in deepstack analysis Windows?

    I don't remember what determines it. For comparison, my settings are Pre-trigger video buffer of 1.5 sec, Analyze one every 500ms Begin analysis with motion-leading edge checked and I get these results:

    Anyone getting T+0 msec in deepstack analysis Windows?

    Do you have “begin analysis with motion-leading edge” checked or unchecked? Also what is your “pre-trigger video buffer" set to?

    Blueiris schedule and Reolink auto IR

    Remote management drop down menu disappeared.

    Has your screen resolution changed? Is the window just too small to show it?

    Help with choosing best option for Blue Iris PC

    When you "make an offer" on listings like these, how much can you realistically undercut their Buy It Now prices? Looking to purchase another system for a family member and might go the eBay route.

    Wiring IP Cameras

    Indoor or outdoor cameras? Do you have an accessible attic or crawl space? I ran a number of my outdoor cams to the soffit via the attic. Some were wired adjacent to existing flood lights or switches. I drilled through the foundation wall to place a couple other exterior cams. For my 80 year...

    Remotely start/stop recording via cellphone or computer desktop shortcut? Maybe NFC stickers?

    I use an NFC tag to run an HTTP command to change profiles in BI. I have it by the door and tap it with my phone to disable alerts when I’m going to mow the lawn.

    Scrubbing within alert?

    I just emailed BI support to request this ability. Please consider doing the same, @IReallyLikePizza2, since the more users who request something, the better chance it'll be added.

    Scrubbing within alert?

    I know it’s not scrubbing, but on the mobile app you can tap on the right and left side of the video to skip forward or backward by five seconds. I’d also like the option for the scrub bar to only represent the duration of the alert (break time) rather than the whole clip it’s a part of.

    BI help file, help

    Good catch, thanks @looney2ns I didn't notice that. It seems like it should be automatically updated with each release. I'll email support and ask if that's possible.

    BI help file, help

    That's still embedded in the PDF, but you need to enable it in whatever PDF viewer software you're using. Blue Iris comes with Sumatra PDF, so if you're using that you can view bookmarks by going to the "hamburger" menu > View > Bookmarks:

    Is this the help file you're using? https://blueirissoftware.com/BlueIris.pdf I see the table of contents on pages 2-5. Are you looking for something else?

    Setting up Deep Stacks to identify the mail truck

    I don't have an nvidia card either and did my training on Google Colab. I updated the link in my earlier post to the correct section.

    Setting up Deep Stacks to identify the mail truck

    Not sure how much work you want to put into it, but I followed this guide to train a custom DS model to detect license plates and its working well. You could do the same from images of the mail truck if there’s not an existing model available. https://docs.deepstack.cc/custom-models/index.html

    How to Improve Video Quality on iOS Blue Iris?

    You can probably disable “limit bitrate” for your LAN profile and set the resolution to 1080. That’s how mine is and I have no problems. You could also increase WAN to 2048 or higher if you want. As for a quick toggle, I don’t know of one, but it’s worth emailing support to request it. They’re...

    How to Improve Video Quality on iOS Blue Iris?

    In the BI iOS app, go to the home page > Settings > video encoder profiles. Here you can choose the encoder profile you’d like to use when on LAN and WAN. Select the highest quality option from the list and see how it looks. If that’s not good enough, you can edit these profiles and increase the...

    Hell Yeah! Direct Deepstack Integration - 5.4.0 - March 31, 2021

    I asked Ken about sending images to DS faster than the current 1 second interval. This is what he said: “Next version will allow overlapping analysis. 250 and 500 msec options. Regardless of the processing time. This will cause some people to run lower on ram.” Update: Out now, there it is...

    BI 5482 breaks camera groups

    I saw the same behavior on the iOS app last week. Had to delete and reinstall the app to fix it. Unsure if it’s the same issue you’re seeing.

    First, make sure you have “Hide cameras” set to No in the app settings. Then go to the cameras page, scroll down to the disabled camera, tap to open it, tap the gear cog, then toggle the “Enabled” switch.

    Please help me with notifications

    Do you leave the VPN connected on your iOS device all the time or only when you open the Blue Iris app? It should get the rich notifications (images/GIFs) if your VPN is connected and it can callback to your server. As for GIF by email, you should send an email to BI support to request that...

    BI DS analysis timing

    The first "blue border" frame occurs at the motion leading edge, which for me is just following my 2 second pre-trigger buffer. Then the next "blue border" frame occurs one second later, and so on. I noticed some objects were traveling so fast that they were already out of view by the time the...

    License plate detection, crop, and save

    @cjowers this is excellent and thanks for taking the time to post! I mentioned in another thread that I followed your instructions to annotate and train my own license plate model a couple of weeks ago. Since then, I've gathered an additional 500 images to train a more accurate model, but I'd...
