    Looking for advice in locking down my system

    I have a Linksys WRT3200ACM router and my wi-fi extender is a TP-Link AC1750 WiFi Extender. I think they're both very capable and relatively secure, assuming I have things setup well. I'm certain I'm past due to review the security settings of both, as well as making certain their firmware is...

    Looking for advice in locking down my system

    Thanks Rob! Excellent information on the dual-NIC. I'd never thought of that or even heard of it, but that looks like it would be very helpful, and a great way to help keep things segregated. I've been planning to pickup a POE switch soon, before I start picking up my outdoor cameras, so this...

    Looking for advice in locking down my system

    Currently, our camera setup includes a Hikvision DS-2CD2442FWD-IW in our great room and a cheap Foscam R4S monitoring the inside of our garage. They're both connected via ethernet and recorded through Blue Iris. I plan to start adding outdoor cameras soon, but that's what we have now. A week or...

    Having trouble getting audio to record with video

    Sorry for rambling. When I'm remoting into my BI server, which is running on an old HP running Windows 10, I cannot hear audio when reviewing clips or watching live video. This server is in my network closet with no keyboard, mouse, monitor or speakers, so remoting in using TeamViewer is my best...

    Having trouble getting audio to record with video

    Well, BI isn't running as a service, at least I don't think I set it up that way, but I am remoting in using TeamViewer. My security server is running on a PC in my network closet and it has no physical keyboard, mouse, monitor or speakers. Any other Windows or system sounds from that computer...

    Having trouble getting audio to record with video

    OK, still one small quirk. I can't seem to get audio to work from within the Blue Iris app itself. If I export a video clip or watch a video clip or watch live from the iOS app, I get sound, but if I'm watching live or watching a clip from within the Blue Iris Windows app, I get nothing. I have...

    Great!, Both cameras are working correctly and sound is recording now. I'm in great shape now.

    Having trouble getting audio to record with video

    Hey, thank you. I thought I'd had that set for both cameras, but I hadn't. I enabled it on the Foscam, and I now have audio recording from the garage camera. Unfortunately, it was already enabled on the Hikvision camera in the great room, and I get nothing whatsoever from it. EDIT: I may have...

    Having trouble getting audio to record with video

    Well, I'd hate to think it was that simple. I'm pretty sure that I've tried that, but maybe I only imagined it. I'll check it out and we'll see how it goes. Thank you!

    Having trouble getting audio to record with video

    To be honest, I haven't tried in awhile, but I remember trying a lot of different things several months ago, before finally giving up and moving onto other things. Today, I saved a clip of my 18-month-old grandson being naughty, and funny, as he was doing some things he wasn't supposed to. I was...

    Foscam R4S doesn't keep time

    I'm not sure where to get these settings. In Onvif the camera was set to my time zone, Central Time, with automatically adjust for daylight savings time, but the time was always wrong. I don't have any other software for this camera, so I don't know how to access any built-in NTP/DNS settings...

    iOS app constantly not connecting

    Well, mine was just as simple as setting up port forwarding. Everything is working from inside, and outside, my network again. It's just really strange that I never setup port forwarding at all to begin with, and everything worked just fine for most of a week, before failing completely. Anyway...

    Foscam R4S doesn't keep time

    I have a Foscam R4S that I finally got to working with my Blue Iris setup. I wanted a cheap camera for my garage. It's working well except for the fact that it won't keep time correctly. Using Onvif I was able to set it to sync with my computer, but it isn't, Earlier, myy computer said 8:29am...

    iOS app constantly not connecting

    I saw another post that mentioned port forwarding, and I know I didn't set that up at all initially. So I'm going to check that tomorrow afternoon. The odd thing I can't wrap my head around is, if that's it, why and how did it work without a problem for a week before stopping? Anyway, I'll post...

    iOS app constantly not connecting

    I'm having this same issue. I finally purchased the Blue Iris iOS app so I can monitor my cameras when I'm away from home. I was concerned that it would be hard to setup, but it was relatively easy. Everything worked well for several days, maybe a week, then it just stopped connecting to the...

    Can't get Foscam R4S working with Blue Iris, or anything else

    Thanks guys. I really appreciate it! I'll add notes to myself about ONVIF. that may help with the future cameras that are sure to come. I'll save the manuals as well, until I find mine.

    Can't get Foscam R4S working with Blue Iris, or anything else

    I finally noticed the "How to add camera to BI that is not in the drop down list" sticky thread on the Blue Iris Troubleshooting forum. That led me to ONVIF, which helped me get it going. I saw the /videoMain and copy/pasted that into the Path. That still didn't get me there though. I also...

    Can't get Foscam R4S working with Blue Iris, or anything else

    I'm not certain if this Foscam forum or the Blue Iris forum is the best place to start for help, so I'm going to start here. Back before Christmas I purchased a Foscam R4S camera on sale. I read a lot of negative on here about Foscam cameras in general, but I got a really good deal on this one...

    Curious about audio recording and recording all footage

    I definitely will before I start putting up outdoor cameras. Right now I just have the one Hikvision Cube camera in our great room and a Blue Iris server setup and going and I'm playing and learning, so I'm not overly concerned. We have an alarm in addition to the camera, and my wife and I have...

    Curious about audio recording and recording all footage

    I guess you're right, I should check on my local laws. I know many areas have laws about people being recorded without their express permission, audio or video, but I would think that, surely, anyone breaking into your home, vandalizing outside, whatever, would not have those same rights if they...

    Curious about audio recording and recording all footage

    I'm curious about a couple of recording options. Do most of you record all footage continuously or do you record based on motion or some other trigger? Also, for cameras with mic capability, do you record audio as well, or only video? Thanks.

    How do I update the time overlay?

    Oh yes, I meant to ask, by recording direct-to-disc, and skipping any encoding and compression, I know this lightens the CPU load, but I'm assuming the video is much larger as well, correct. So a trade-off between CPU load and storage space. Of course, storage space is cheap these days. Thanks...

    How do I update the time overlay?

    Done. Someone else told me about direct-to-disc recording and I've already set that up and gotten rid of Blue Iris' overlays. I also found out where to correct/modify my camera's overlays. Thanks. Yes, I set the camera up when it was light. That image was the first shot I had of it at night...

    How do I turn off the time and camera name?

    OK, thanks for the advice. I've been a computer/techno geek for close to 40 years, but cameras and Blue Iris are all completely new territory for me. I know I have tons to learn, but I'm looking forward to it.

    How do I update the time overlay?

    I'm just getting started. I finally got my first camera, a Hikvision DS-2CD2442FWD-IW up and running. I also got Windows 10 Pro installed on the computer I purchased, have installed Blue Iris 5, and have my camera added. That's pretty much as far as I've gotten so far. I have a time...

    Newbie needs help getting video from new cube camera

    I feel silly now. When I went back and looked at it, and tried to find the settings you mentioned, they weren't there. Actually, there were hardly any settings at all. Then I realized that, by clicking on the big e on my task bar, I was actually starting Microsoft Edge, not IE. When I searched...

    Newbie needs help getting video from new cube camera

    Well, it worked for a short while, then I bumped the power connector while I was adjusting the position of the camera. The camera turned off and I lost the feed. I reconnected and the camera powered back up, and I can see it in the browser or and in SADP, but now I have no video. I'm back to a...
