    Storage Requirement

    Thanks looney2ns. Since BI alerts tab defaults to "when this camera is triggered" I had overlapping confusion but the help file is giving me more insight into trigger settings, particularly being able to lengthen the time.

    Storage Requirement

    Chosen for each camera in settings menu and under RECORD tab. I just realized that I have some set up to record CONTINUOUS + ALERTS and some CONTINUOUS + TRIGGERED. Could someone elaborate the difference between these 2?

    Storage Requirement

    I have chosen to sacrifice some quality for quantity myself. In order to keep a months worth of recordings to 8TB, running 27 cameras 24/7 I have all cameras set using "continuous + triggered" and run from 5 to 15 fps depending on my personal requirements. This has been a continual "work in...

    Alert playback plays the whole clip?

    Playing the whole "video" clip can be helpful if you wanted to back up a few seconds or continue to watch the action after the "alert" ended. I do not mind hitting "ESC" to revert back to the normal screen. I find it beneficial every day. My videos are set for 1 hour which I feel are more user...

    Are Most Routers POE Compatible?

    Would adding a common switch, POE or not, at the router help. Plug the current 2 lines into it and then a single line into the router. If memory serves me correctly, this is configured this way due to location issues.

    Are Most Routers POE Compatible?

    I am no pro but having 4 cameras running through the router then to the NVR seems like a bottleneck.

    SUNBA PoE+ PTZ Camera Outdoor, 36X Optical Zoom 5MP

    I have enjoyed this thread Saltster and just now noticed that you are using an NVR and Blueiris. Would you elaborate on why using both? I love BI and recently inherited a Dahua NVR and have considered adding it to my playground if I can find an advantage.

    Fun times at the gas station ...

    Sure a lot of female drama there. I can't imagine how much hassle it would be to do a police report but thankfully the video helps.

    Blue Iris problem

    I receive these calls regularly, not only lying about being from Microsoft but also Amazon, AT@T, DirecTV, IRS, etc. I will end this once my bank account is funded from my long lost relative in Nigeria who needs my help getting his money to the US.

    EZVIZ C6N in Blue Iris - PTZ and audio not working

    If available at reasonable price in your area, the Amcrest IP2M-881 works well with Blueiris. I use them wired but disable WIFI.

    Ethernet, POE, Gigabit Switch, Which One Do I Need?

    Do you by chance have electric available to where the pipe runs? If so then you would need only 1 cable (minimum) and install and 8 port POE switch there.

    Need help choosing the right switch

    I prefer to use inexpensive BV-Tech 9 port POE+ (dumb) switches. Chain them together and should 1 have an issue then it doesn't take down the whole system. I currently have near 30 POE and POE+ cameras on them and lots of non poe equipment. Just my 2cents.

    Two POE Cams Over One Ethernet Cable

    i have several of those cheapo combiner/splitter units in operation and they work well. Each camera is operating on only 4 of the 8 wires and those units take advantage of the 4 unused wires.

    What The Heck Is That Sound

    Failed communication with all six my Empiretech cameras after power cycle

    I would run BI on a different modem without internet access but to get you going this may help in changing your new modem/router IP so you can get the cameras set up. " How do I change the settings on my Arris router? Configure the settings for your Arris modem in the control panel section...

    Does firmware change with a factory reset SD59432XA-HNR?

    I bought 2 T5442T-ZE refurbs from Andy. One of them allowed me to login via IE an asked to assign my new password. The other one asked for the login password and, like yourself, I tried the 1234, etc and failed. I also did resets with power on and power off but still could not access the camera...
