    Puzzled: Difficult to trigger BI motion for Deepstack analysis

    Just getting started with DS but this is really a BI issue as I can't easily get BI to motion trigger...or, I should say it's oddly difficult to get BI to motion trigger in this instance. Once BI triggers I can see that DS is doing an impressive job (out of the box) with the analysis. I noticed...

    UI3 updated to the latest - Timeline not working

    I've got two BI servers running, the older one on v5.3.6.6 (no upgrade support) and the newer one on v5.5.7.0. The older one had UI3 v133 on it while the newer one has v213. I decided to update the UI3 on the older one to v213 also just so that both systems have the same appearance. The problem...

    Dahua Global Calibration - Why should I care?

    The funny thing is, with Dahua being such a large manufacturer of IP cams, you'd think they could do a better job of documenting, explaining, provided example videos or providing practical application tips. Instead of railing against Dahua and their shortfalls or digressing to tell that dog...

    Blue Iris SHIELD disarmed on it's own?

    Curious to know what would trigger BI to disarm the Shield? I woke up about 9am this morning and noticed that BI stopped recording at 8:03am. In the log 2 mins later you see "Nothing to do". I learned my lesson and have unchecked DISABLE RECORDINGS in the Shield section of OTHER settings. Just...

    Just now getting around to setting up Sub Streams in BI

    Yeah, I'm slow....and I'm not here to debate framerates ;) but I'm trying to figure out some weirdness with what BI is showing for one of three cams I've setup for sub streams. I have three Dahua T5442TM-AS cams set up identical with the following settings. Yet, one of them has BI reporting...

    Dell Optiplex - HD is protected by password authentication system

    Well, this doesn't look promising LOL, but y'all may know if there's a resolution. I've recently picked up a Dell Optiplex 7060 from eBay. I did a fresh install of Window 10 Pro on the NVMe M.2 it came with. I installed a new WD purple 6TB drive and formatted it. I decided to use the Dell...

    Opinions: Out of these 3 which would you recommend?

    I'm looking for two "inexpensive" IP cams to be installed inside of the garage, well....actually two garages if you will. See pic below, the other side of the house is identical. The cameras will be mounted inside about 15 feet back from that center entrance door. The primary reason for the cams...

    Dumb questions of the day: if 4mp cam needs more light than a 2mp cam with the same size sensor.... there a way to set the 4mp into 2mp pix mode so that the 4mp cam only needs the same amount of light? In other words, if you purchase said 4mp cam thinking it will do just fine in low light but it turns out you overestimated the amount of light available at night is there a way to...

    What's a good equivalent cam to the Dahua N22AL12

    I bought one of these a few years ago for $55 while on sale to be used as an inexpensive cam for inside the garage. I see the current price is way up from what I paid. Anyone have a good equivalent cam that is nearer to that $55? I'm setting up a system for my parents and want to put a couple of...

    Please remind me again...where do you control if BI records overlays?

    I'm having a brain's been a couple of years since I set this up but where do you control whether or not BI records overlays such as time and/or BIT overlays? I have BIT displaying weather info but notice that BI is recording that info. I had thought there was a way to display the...

    BI5 - Do you have to have a support/maintenance plan to get minor updates?

    I started off with BI4 for a short period then came along BI5 so I selected the one year support/maintenance plan with the understanding I would get upgraded from BI4 to BI5 AND continue to get BI5 minor updates over the life of BI5. Did I misunderstand that? Looks like the option to get the...

    Did IVS for Dahua cams break recently?

    I noticed about 3 or 4 weeks ago I stopped getting IVS triggers in BI for IVS rules I had using using for the last year. Everything was working but now no more BI alerts for IVS triggers. The only thing I can think of is that BI version was updated about 3 or 4 weeks ago. None of the settings in...

    Weird gaps in BI recordings - missing segments

    Check out BI5....gaps in the recordings where all cams stopped recording. The blank segments are about 10 seconds with about 10 second between intervals. That was yesterday afternoon. Today, all is fine. Looking for where BI can send me an alert when the weirdness happens...where are the...

    They got into a least a couple of vehicles in the community that I'm aware of....police came and dusted a neighbors car for fingerprints. Suggestions on how to improved the video quality? It's from a IPC-T5442TM-AS (3.6mm) with IR set to Auto.

    Remind me how to export clips in BI without saving the AUDIO

    Looks like I have some video I want to save but one of the cams accidently was recording the audio. How do I export the video portion of the clip without including the audio track?

    Text Message Alerts showing up hours later

    Thought I saw a thread before about text message alerts inconsistently showing up in a timely fashion. Sometimes text message alerts come in immediately and at other times they come in hours later. What is really odd is that many times the alerts are out of order. That is, a text message...

    I've played around with the CAMERA > COLOR > SETTINGS but haven't found a combination that thrills me just yet. Seeking some help/suggestions. Here are three T5442TM-AS cams that are closely located to each on the left side, center and right side of the garage. Notice the huge...

    How many of you wear "hoodies" in normal life?

    Just many of you own a hoodie and wear it regularly with the hood over your head. Maybe this is a cold climate region question. I don't know that I know a single person who wears the hood on his hoodie much less owns a hoodie but I live in Florida.

    If you had to recommend a mini PTZ which one would you?

    I need a new toy.... Curious to know what mini PTZ you would recommend in the year 2020 to pan around and zoom. I live on a slow, wide creek in Florida...most of you would call it a swamp...LOL. Anyhow, I don't know that I want to sink $350+ on a PTZ play toy so I though maybe a mini PTZ...

    IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M IVS not working on Channel 2

    @EMPIRETECANDY can you check with the Dahua engineers to find out if they plan to fix the firmware for IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M to get IVS to work for both channels? There are a lot of people using that camera that would like IVS to work. Do they have a solution for this problem or is camera too old...

    Recommendation on a swivel ball mount for IR illuminator?

    I've been sitting on a couple of Tendelux 8W IR Illuminators for awhile but now it time to get off my duff and install them. Just checking to see if y'all have a recommendation on a swivel mount I can add to the illumintor bracket so I have more flexibility on angling it the perfect direction...
