    DS model to detect landscapers aka "lawnguy"

    I distinctly remember seeing a DS model that identified landscapers holding a leaf blower as "lawnguy" but for the life of me I can't find it again. Does any of this sound familiar? I thought it was on IPCT but my old brain isn't cooperating.

    Need guidance getting Deepstack GPU version working...

    Last week I set up Deepstack for the first time, CPU version, and added the delivery models, and it worked really well. So I decided to take the next step and get the GPU version going. I am no expert in AI or 3D graphics cards but the CPU version "just worked" so I figured the GPU version...

    Possible to filter alerts by memo/object type?

    Is there a way to filter/search for confirmed alerts of a specific type? For example, show only fedex, ups and usps alerts? As it seems, you can filter for person alerts, vehicle alerts and confirmed alerts, but noting more specific than that.

    UI3 throwing errors on Samsung TV browser.

    I have 4 Samsung TVs that I occasionally use to monitor BI. I just upgraded BI from v4 to v5 (UI3 version 218, Blue Iris version: to be exact) and now, on the newer Samsung, BI doesn't load. Allcams.htm is no longer available on BI5 so can't fallback to that. Any help getting this...

    Swipe down to return to live view not working in android app

    In the BI app iOS version you swipe up from live view of a camera of interest to view alerts, then swipe down to return to live view. In the android version, swipe up works but swipe down does nothing. You have to hit the back button which brings you not to live view, but to the cameras page...

    3D Printed Junction Box for Dahua IPC-HDW5231R-Z

    I whipped up a 3D printed junction box for the venerable IPC-HDW5231R-Z. One thing I noticed is this camera has much greater "presence" than the Grandstream eyeball it replaced. The GS was relatively round and unobtrusive while the elephant nose of this Dahua definitely makes a statement...

    Shortest focal length thats not a fisheye...?

    I'm trying to cover an area with an IPC-HDW5231R-Z, cam position is not the best and running cable to a different location is not an option. I have the cam zoomed out to 2.8mm but I could use a little more FOV. Any ideas short of going to a fisheye?

    Automatically select Day or Night profile based on whether it's Day or Night?

    Can Dahua cams automatically select day or night profiles based on whether the camera is in day (color) or night (BW + IR) mode? From what I can tell it can only be changed manually or via a fixed daily schedule.

    Dewarping Capabilities of Dahua Fisheye IPC-EBW8630-IVC

    Can the main stream of this camera show multiple dewarped views like the 4-up view on the right side of the attached screenshot, or does it only stream the raw fisheye view? Side question, is there any difference between the IPC-EBW8630-IVC version and the N68BR4V listed on the US website?

    I'd like to run BI in a Windows 7 Virtualbox guest on an Ubuntu linux host. If the host machine is running an Intel i7 processor with Quicksync hardware acceleration, will BI be able to take advantage of it?
