    BI only shows 3 days of stored clips in the calendar

    In my new clip storage location, I have ~16 days of clips. When I look at the calendar in BI, I only have a red dot for the past three days. I can double-click on the oldest clip in the storage location and BI will play it. I did a "Repair DB" and it didn't change anything. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Deepstack "images" and "analyze every" settings

    I'm using 6 images and analyze every 500 ms. I'm curious if that's too few images, since it means it will analyze 6 images within 3 seconds. What settings are you using and do you use different settings for day and night profiles? Thanks!

    Need an outdoor wireless camera for watching owls and their babies

    We have owls nesting in a tree just outside in our backyard. I'd like to purchase a wireless camera that has a decent optical zoom so we can watch them. Does Dahua offer anything like this. I only mention Dahua since all my other cameras are Dahua. Thanks!

    Did a quick IR test tonight with 3 different IR illuminators

    This test was conducted with a Dahua IPC-T5442T-ZE from Andy. Default settings and running Andy's firmware. All three IR illuminators are a big improvement over the camera IR. Which one do you like the best? These brand new model Tendelux IR illuminators I bought on Amazon and received today...

    IPC-T5442T-ZE from Andy question

    I purchased one of these to test and evaluate if it's worth upgrading several of my 5231s. I have two questions, what is the rectangular opening below the lens face and what does the "UP" stamp mean? I know it suggests orientation when installed, but what is the reason why? Thanks!

    5231 Smart IR question

    All of my 5231s have Smart IR turned off because I use a separate IR illuminator with each camera. What I'm wondering is if I turn on the Manual IR and adjust it to the lowest setting, will it automatically adjust the exposure etc? The reason I'd use the lowest setting is because I'd like to...

    BI camera settings for using different Deepstack models per profile

    I'd like to only use the standard objects Deepstack model during the day, and only the dark model at night. In my Day profile -> Trigger -> AI, I put dark:0 which doesn't work. It causes timeouts and no detections. What are the proper profile variables to accomplish what I would like to do? Thanks!

    "On Alert" actions and Profile syncing

    I have one camera where I have defined multiple "On Alert" actions. My question is... if I go to another camera and got to camera settings -> alerts, if I sync with the camera where I have these actions defined, they don't get copied to the target camera. Is that by design or a bug? Thanks!

    Alert notification number on app icon

    My wife and I each have the app on our iPhones. We also use the same account to access BI via the app. I'd like to know what actions clear the number of alerts? Overnight we had several alerts due to wildlife yet the number on the BI app icon only showed 5 when there were actually 30+. Thanks

    Added Dark Model... process times slower?

    I'm testing the Dark Model. Overall, it seems to give higher percentage captures for Cars and People during night AND day. The only problem is that BI takes roughly two times longer to alert while running the custom model. Is that to be expected? Thanks!
