    Brand Name of your Solid State Disk (SSD)

    Intel and Samsung, both are over provisioned with decent amounts of extra memory cells so they last longer and decent sized cache. Keep in-mind, the cheaper the SSD generally more bits per CELL (meaning if your cheap SSD stores 4 bits per cell (MLC) , compared a single cell (SLC), then then...

    Getting Intel Quick Sync to work with Blue Iris (Settings & Troubleshooting)

    I had to build a new box and took a while to find a working Intel driver for i7-6700 as the older Intel drivers are no longer available for download and the newer ones would not install on a fully patched and updated Windows 10. I used the Windows Driver from v23.20.16.4973 extracted from a CAB...

    Getting Intel Quick Sync to work with Blue Iris (Settings & Troubleshooting)

    Make sure camera is set to 264 not 264h or 264+ with any smart codecs disabled. Just basic

    Integration with Amazon Rekognition

    Have you considered the AWS IOT connector Quick Start? https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/iot/introducing-the-aws-iot-camera-connector-quick-start-connect-stream-from-and-manage-security-cameras-using-aws-iot-and-amazon-kinesis-video-streams/ With a low frame rate and 1080p, H.265 wouldn't take much...

    Help with processor recommendations

    Agree, but 10TB drives can be found for $150 when you buy them in those external USB cases. Or $250 for a 10GB Purple Drive. Save on power by having less actual drives. 10 TB is a lot for most people (especially with H.265+), but not for a large system!!

    Help with processor recommendations

    Interesting... I find if you don't use motion detection, no overlays ect, then BI hardly uses any CPU. Just my 1c, I wouldn't buy a (k) unlocked CPU and overclock it for BI. Save money and get a locked CPU. K's are great for overclocking for games, but shouldn't run 24x7 overclocked without...

    How to capture clear frames of fast moving objects?

    For this use case high frame rate is NOT required and plain silly. Could possibly even use JPEG snapshots. Let's face it whatever service you upload the video to, is not going to analyse 60fps. High frame rates, really only help if you want smooth playback, or maximise face angles during a...

    Fat bear causing trouble in the neighborhood

    Not sure of the official position, however in my experience with Dahua and h/w decode if you leave the camera on H.264+and not drop to H.264 the. Frame rates drop after a few hours.

    Exporting clips for texting purposes

    Damn, I didn't get any of those icons in Playtback mode. Playback always goes instantly full screen and no way to shrink!! Switched to BVR format and now I get the icons above!!! Thanks for that!! I record in H.265, I notice when playing BVR format back, CPU load increases and the format...

    Stunnel problems, binding issue/address issue

    Can't have STUNNEL and BI on the same port. eg: n STUNNEL Change accept = 8080 to accept = 8081 Then in BI change the secure port from 8080 to 8081 Bit rusty here, you router needs to port forward requests on port 8081 to STUNNEL on port 8081 In STUNNEL you also need to change the CONNECT port...

    Low power(T version) Intel Cpu will work?

    I recon the T CPU will be too under powered. Ignore CPU usage that is a terrible meaningless metric. Look if you look at the core speed, you will likely find your current CPU is running a low clock speed, so using no where near max power usage. Whereas your T will likely have to boost.

    Exporting clips for texting purposes

    Perhaps it depends on recording formats. I use MPEG4 and from what I can see there is no ability within the iOS App to save the file. And no filmstrip icon during playback. Interested to hear how you get on with this, so see what I am missing.

    Redundancy for Surveillance Systems

    Redundancies are all about layers, cost vs rewards. - camera overlap - sd cards in cameras - offsite storage to cloud - Router with (4G backup built-in) - ups on the Switch, Router and BI server - padlock on external meter box - physical measures to secure nvr and nas. - Sync motion events and...

    Redundancy for Surveillance Systems

    All my Footage is synced immediately to the cloud, using a variety of providers, - OneDrive (leverage an O365 subscription, each user has 1 TB of storage) - Google Backup and Sync - Amazon S3 (cost of puts adds up here, not so much the actual cost of storage) - I have also successfully hosted BI...

    How well has Sentry worked for me?

    Schedules within BI are perfect for this use case. I have 2 main schedules [HOME] and [AWAY] Geofencing switches between home and away schedules. Basically AWAY sends mobile IOS alerts and HOME doesn't. Then within each Schedule I have 2 profiles DAY and NIGHT Where a few of the features are...

    BI 5 and Port Fowarding/DDNS

    Lol.. no isp changes your wan address that frequently. Caused them issues, especially on compliance. If it is changing that frequently and your BI server isn’t on the back of a truck, contact your isp. Major red flag right there. You will have all sorts of connectivity issues

    BI 5 and Port Fowarding/DDNS

    BI essentially has it's own Dynamic DNS style service, based on your license key. Follow the remote access wizard, it guides you through this and shows you the url. Basically bookmark and go to "blueiris.pro/go?XXXXXXXXXX" where XXXXXXXXXX are the first 5 and last 5 digits of your licence key...

    You need context, port forwarding BI is secure. More VPN exploits.. Vulnerabilities Exploited in Multiple VPN Applications | CISA again not against VPN but you need to keep on top of the bugs

    TALK ME OFF THE LEDGE

    Context please. Do you images contain compromising / sensitive data? If so neither VPN it port forwarding are suitable. If you use port forwarding you will need stunnel to encrypt the images/audio. Are you an android/iOS user who uses gif alerts? Port forwarding only Do you want secure...

    Motion Detection best practice.

    I am not in front of MY BI machine, but it looks like you have a DATE selected on the alerts. See how the calendar is green, suggest clicking on it. I found Sentry just flagged alerts, didn't remove them.

    TALK ME OFF THE LEDGE

    True, but this has only been the case for a few months in recent wrt builds. How often are noobs updating their routers and VPN servers. Subscribe to the open VPN security notices to keep on top of VPN issues. As I said, VPN has its benefits but it’s use does come with risks, which if...

    How well has Sentry worked for me?

    Thank-you SAM for your response. I do acknowledge that I was a bit of a D' to test the above scenarios, and that Sentry is working in 90% + of the case, which is how it is being marketed. I also find it beneficial to be able to disable\enable Sentry by BlueIris profiles, this provides some great...

    TALK ME OFF THE LEDGE

    Thank-you for entertaining me so far. As I said I am not anti-vpn, most people just don't understand the pro's and con's, so let me expand. Most consumer implementations including OpenVPN and OpenWRT use the BlowFish Cipher, this is next to useless for privacy and is far less secure than...

    How well has Sentry worked for me?

    Sentry needs more than 1 frame to improve accuracy. eg: if I walk towards my house with a flashlight, the frame sent to Sentry doesn't have me, it has the flashlight and doesn't flag the image. A ball is thrown on the lawn, again the ball seems to be the trigger and not the person that follows...

    perhaps re-read what I wrote, as I don’t believe I rubbished VPN. More pointed out some implications, benefits and alternatives. I cited the perfect use case for VPN (when you trust both the source and destination). Ie: corporate controlled pc and corporate network. 100% fact vpn will bypass...

    No my Skybell is stand-alone, it does support integrations such as NEST and IFTTT, but I never found the need. (Found IFTTT too slow). The biggest letdown of the Skybell is lack of pre-recording, weak wifi. When I chose the Skybell Trip Plus years ago, the Ring had bad reviews (low resolution...

    TALK ME OFF THE LEDGE

    While I agree a good alarm comes first, I am not sold on the need to alarm all doors and windows in an existing premise, when decent coverage can be obtained by PIR's with less damage to the property and far lower installation costs. I would not underestimate the value of a well placed external...

    Blue Iris on 2 PC?

    Hmm.. I have done it at least 3 times already and was about to change hardware again. I was piloting on a VM, and it was running nicely, should have left it on a VM.
