    5.5.8 - June 13, 2022 - Code Project’s SenseAI,

    @MikeLud1 Mike, I notice in your reply on static objects that your settings have "Use mainstream". I'm slowly catching on but I thought you always recommended to uncheck this option. Is that right?

    IP Cam Talk Custom Community DeepStack Model

    I just read all 761 posts in this thread and now I can't find the one I'm looking for. Using CP.AI, I'm going to switch to @MikeLud1 's general and animal custom models. But, in the interest of efficiency, I'm happy for all the animals to be combined into one "animal" classification. I thought...

    5.5.8 - June 13, 2022 - Code Project’s SenseAI,

    Thank you, @MikeLud1 I did as you suggested, and to my utter amazement, everything seems to be working. I have a lot of work to understand and fine-tune the trigger sensitivity and custom model selection, but basic functionality is there.

    5.5.8 - June 13, 2022 - Code Project’s SenseAI,

    I am about ready to take the plunge and upgrade from Deepstack to CP.AI. I'd appreciate any advice or comments on the proper approach. Currently running an I5 Windows 10 system with a Quadro P400/2GB DDR5. BI is 5.5.7.11. (I installed an older version of CP.AI but it didn't work right and I...

    Looks like more effort being put into Code Project AI enhancements the last couple of weeks

    I just asked the question in another thread "is now the time to move to CP.AI?". Since you are one of the more helpful people, I'm looking forward to hearing about your experience. Did you do it?

    5.5.8 - June 13, 2022 - Code Project’s SenseAI,

    This seems to be the most active thread for CP.AI questions but if there is a better place - just tell me and I'll go away. In your opinion, is the time upon us where it's time for a follow-the-recipe type (e.g. me) to convert from DS to CP.AI? Should I wait for any dramatic new and improved...

    Warning Blue Iris Update 5.5.9.4 Might Kill DeepStack

    I'm experiencing the same problem, so I uninstalled DS (using the Windows Program uninstall). I noticed that the C:\Deepstack directory still exists with all or most of the DS files. Is this normal or does it indicate a failed uninstall? Would I be better off reverting to BI 5.5.7.11?

    Blue Iris with AI but which one though?

    I have the Quadro P400. Does this card meet the specs? From the SenseAI web page:

    Need help installing a GPU

    Miracle of miracles - I received my $100 P400 today and it's working. Without good metrics, the performance improvement is hard to quantify, but very roughly, on an i5-6500 CPU times were 500ms to 3s; the very few P400 samples I've seen are in the 200-300ms range. Installation of the Nvidia...

    Need help installing a GPU

    What are some tips for measuring Deepstack response time? This is for my current CPU-only to compare with my hopefully-forthcoming-GPU-accelerated system. The only way I know how to see execution times is in the BI log and filter for Deepstack. Is there a better source? Or even a more...

    DeepStack Case Study: Performance from CPU to GPU version

    A question about cuDNN version (for a P400). All the docs on the Deepstack site, and references here, point to v10.1. But the Nvidia site gives v11.5 as the most recent available. For a new install, is it recommended to stay back on v10.1 or keep up with the latest? Thank you.

    Hell Yeah! Direct Deepstack Integration - 5.4.0 - March 31, 2021

    I'm awaiting a P400 in the mail next week. Can these steps be performed in advance of the hardware being installed (to get a headstart on the ordeal)?

    Need help installing a GPU

    Hello @wittaj As a n3wb, I appreciate all your comments. Would you elaborate on the above? I've been trying to catch up on GPU's and everything I've read indicates that the number of CUDA cores is key. I understand that both the beards are at the low-end, but the GT1030 has 50% more CUDA cores...

    DeepStack Case Study: Performance from CPU to GPU version

    I have an i5-6500 (early Intel QuickSync) running 8 cameras through BI+Deepstack. DS processing is 500ms to 2s, so I think I can benefit from even an affordable GPU boost. Would a sixth gen I5 see improvement from an added P400? After reading this thread, I'm confused about whether my current...

    How to estimate fixed focal from a vari-focal ?

    Pretty much what I did on my own. The calculator is very helpful - I wonder how I missed seeing that. Thanks!

    How to estimate fixed focal from a vari-focal ?

    I have an IPC-T3241T-ZAS (from Andy). Following the advice I've seen from several on this forum, I went with a vari-focal that I can use to tune my needed focal length and then use that as a basis for purchasing fixed focal length cameras. I am guessing at how to do that and would like...

    Should I have a graphics card for DeepStack or is onboard graphics good enough?

    Thanks for your progress reports, toastie. My project for the holidays is to see what I can do to lower AI recognition times. I'm following your odyssey with interest. I've had some concerns about driver and app installation to support an nvidia card.

    Hell Yeah! Direct Deepstack Integration - 5.4.0 - March 31, 2021

    A question about the interval for sending additional frames to DS. Most examples I see show a rate of 750ms to 1s. My rule of thumb -- self-conceived so w/o any real basis -- is that this should be no less than the typical DS processing time. My theory is that it makes sense to send frames at a...

    T5442T-ZE upgrade install

    How well are the direct-to-soffit installations holding up? They look aluminum to me. I'm going to be doing the same thing in a few days and I'm a little concerned about the durability of mounting to the soffit.

    Mounting Bullet cameras to metal soffits

    How bad an idea is it to mount the camera to the aluminum soffit without any additional backing (e.g. aluminum stock)? Since it is NEVER mentioned as an option, I expect it must be pretty bad. Are there any success or horror stories?

    How to delete camera groups?

    Just to speak up for the intrepid OP, this too stumped me. Took ½ hour of reading and experimenting to figure it out and I'm not sure I could do it again.

    New DeepStack September Update Version 2021.09.1

    Is that as simple as executing the installer EXE (DeepStack-Installer-CPU-2021.09.1.exe) and letting it do its thing as though it was a new install?

    [tool] [tutorial] Free AI Person Detection for Blue Iris

    The installer is (good) news to me! Do we still need to stop AITOOL before the upgrade? Or does it install over an older version auto-magically? Still need to unzip and copy?

    [tool] [tutorial] Free AI Person Detection for Blue Iris

    Mostly, yes. The video was incredibly helpful but I used the slightly modified instructions from danecreekphotography/node-deepstackai-trigger He gives full credit to The Hook Up but adds a few tweaks that updated the video.

    @spammenotinoz , @Village Guy This is a great discussion and I thank you each for your POV. I'd like to learn a lot more about these approaches but my grasp of the terminology is insufficient to completely follow the arguments. My configuration is for each physical camera to be configured as...
