    Transport VPN (via Ubiquiti) works great when out and about on mobile. But drops when entering WiFi.

    In pfSense there’s an option called “duplicate connections”. Enabling this will allow multiple connections from the same user. I needed to enable this because when I would switch from WiFi to cell or an area that lacks cell service my VPN wouldn’t reconnect because the sever thought I was...

    Transport VPN (via Ubiquiti) works great when out and about on mobile. But drops when entering WiFi.

    No, that's not how it works. What is your LAN IP address? If your LAN IP address is 192.168.1.x and the public wifi you're connected to also has a LAN IP address range of 192.168.1.x it'll cause issues and you won't be able to connect to your devices within your VPN. Your LAN IP address has to...

    Blue Iris sub streams and iOS mobile app

    I only record on alerts. I emailed Ken and figured out the issue. By default, BI limits remote viewing to 720p. Under settings, advanced, stream 0, uncheck "resize output frame width x height". Once I disabled it I was able to view the main stream during single camera view when using the BI...

    Blue Iris sub streams and iOS mobile app

    I was running BI version 5.5.6.15 when I was experiencing this issue. I upgraded to 5.5.6.20 and the issue is still present. No changes were observed after the update. I did some more troubleshooting. I was using sub stream 2 running at 1280x720. When I changed the sub stream to 704x480 it...

    Blue Iris sub streams and iOS mobile app

    Good evening, I'm currently attempting to set up sub streams on my main BI computer, however I've run into an issues. When I enable sub streams and "Record dual-streams if available" It works as expected when viewing the cameras from the BI console or UI3. When I use the iOS app on my iPhone the...

    Failed communication with all six my Empiretech cameras after power cycle

    Try the old login credentials before you reset it. If not, maybe @EMPIRETECANDY could assist you.

    Failed communication with all six my Empiretech cameras after power cycle

    That would probably be the easiest. But you’re not setting static IP address in the router. You’re changing the routers default gateway from 192.168.254.254 to 192.168.1.1

    Failed communication with all six my Empiretech cameras after power cycle

    yes, you just have to make sure you don’t assign the ip camera the same address as another device on your network. If you do that’ll cause an IP address conflict. Assign the computer to 192.168.1.2 Subnet mask 255.255.255.0 Default gateway 192.168.1.1 dns server 192.168.1.1 When you apply those...

    Failed communication with all six my Empiretech cameras after power cycle

    Well that makes sense.. When the computer rebooted due to the power loss it got assigned a new ip address by the router. Your options are to change the routers default gateway to 192.168.1.1, manually configure your computer's NIC to a static ip address within 192.168.1.1 ( you won't have...

    Failed communication with all six my Empiretech cameras after power cycle

    Assuming that you only have 1 NIC in that computer, it looks like the routers default gateway is 192.168.254.254. You’re gonna have to change that in the router back to 192.168.1.1. If you assign a static ip on your comp using the gateway of 192.168.1.1 you’ll be able to access the cameras but...

    Failed communication with all six my Empiretech cameras after power cycle

    Well that’s why it’s not working. Your default gateway is 192.168.254.254. In order for it to work it needs to be 192.168.1.1. And your pc needs an IP address within that range ex 192.168.1.101. Im on my phone otherwise I’d explain in detail how to fix that

    Failed communication with all six my Empiretech cameras after power cycle

    What are your network settings on the computer you’re attempting to configure that cameras with? Did you assign that a static IP address? Has the IP address on it changed?

    Failed communication with all six my Empiretech cameras after power cycle

    All of my cameras are set to Static IP addresses along with the BI computer. I would never even consider using DHCP with a security camera for the exact reason above. You don't want the system going down because the router malfunctioned or rebooted. If possible, you should put a second NIC in...

    Send Pushover notifications with pictures and hyperlinks

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but you have to send email messages to the Pushover email address to receive them in my pushover app which won’t work without an SMPT server. Like Blueiris, the UPS’s need an SMPT server plus email login credentials to send an email, which I won’t have anymore once Gmail...

    Send Pushover notifications with pictures and hyperlinks

    I'll try this out tomorrow. I also briefly saw on Pushover's website a 3rd party app that'll act as an email server and forward the message to your pushover account. I'm going to check that out because I have two online double conversion UPS's (APC and Battery Backup Power INC.) that I monitor...

    Has anyone been able to get the pushover alert with the image on their Apple Watch? It'll only show me the text and I can't view the image from the Apple Watch.

    Send Pushover notifications with pictures and hyperlinks

    Thank you, I was able to receive the status alert message using the code you provided above. However, on pushover it'll only tell me I have a status message in the title but it won't include the actual status message in the body of the text like it does in email. But for now at least I'll alert...

    Send Pushover notifications with pictures and hyperlinks

    I've got this setup for DeepStack notifications. Within the next few days I plan on phasing out any email notifications from Blue Iris. Thanks @jaydeel for posting this! The last item I need to convert over from email are the status alerts for software restarts or errors. What code line would I...

    Honeywell 6150 vs 6160

    No problem. The Vista 20p hasn't changed that much in the past 20 years besides the addition of graphic touchscreen keypads, IP/LTE communicators, remote interactive services and the addition of a CO (Carbon Monoxide) zone type. However, the main difference between an install now vs 20 years ago...

    Honeywell 6150 vs 6160

    Yes you can. Just make sure you assign each keypad its own address (ex. 6160 set to address 16, 1st 6150 address 17, 2nd 6150 address 18). You can get 6160's at a fairly reasonable price on eBay, why not just use all 6160's? I'm not a fan of the fixed display keypads like the 6150's. These are...

    5 G Has Caught Up With Me

    Who is your current alarm company? How is it currently monitored (Phone line, IP, Cell)? What did the alarm company say you needed? Are you currently under a monitoring contract? If it's currently being monitored by a 3G/4G cellular communicator it will need to be upgraded to LTE communicator...

    Dahua Sunrise/Sunset utility glitch?

    I’ve never had any issues either. This is the first time. I’ll check the logs when I get home. But it’s definitely not a switch or power issues. It happened at the same time at 3 completely separate locations that are not tied into each other. Plus each location is backed up by a UPS and a...

    Dahua Sunrise/Sunset utility glitch?

    I’m using the Dahua Sunrise/sunset utility to switch some of my cameras profiles at 3 different locations. All of the cameras are the Dahua 4mp 5442 variants. This morning none of the cameras at any location switched to the day profile and I had to do it manually. I’ve been using this utility...

    Weird sighting after security system and camera installation

    It sounds like the installer modified the keypad and installed a hidden camera inside of it. That model keypad from DSC does not come with a camera built in. Usually the only alarm systems that have built in cameras are the All-In-One wireless units. The camera usually will interface with the...

    Amazon lost my Dahua IPC-T2431T-AS?

    I forgot Amazon use to ship using Lasership. They were horrible! Just to update this thread, Andy shipped me a new camera and I received it today! It looks like Andy shipped the camera yesterday afternoon. Andy sent me the tracking number this morning and it was delivered this afternoon. Thanks...

    Dahua 2231 NTP Issue

    Hmm I haven't had any problems with the 2231's. I'll have to check to see what firmware version they're on. My DST is configured similar to @th182 and my camera is configured to get it's time from my BI server that has nettime installed on it.

    Break-in

    What's the make/model of your alarm system? Why not just change that door to an entry delay instead of a perimeter zone?
