    Questions on Blue Iris functionality and remote connection

    Try split tunnel. How you do it for a given VPN server/client will differ.

    Tire pick up.

    Was wondering about that too. Is there some sort of tire dumping bounty or something?

    Review- New Design Tendelux 10 Watt IR illuminator.

    IT'S ALIVE!!! Was using my dead one to see what scuffing it some would do and plugged it in just for the hell of it and it's working again! Damn, that's a surprise. It's been sitting there for months. Tried it many times since and nothing. Scuffing it up is fairly effective. You can kind...

    Using the Wyze Cam OG Telephoto as a low-cost daytime LPC camera

    Very true. Really not worth putting that much effort into. I got my V3s for like $10 with SD cards when Home Depot had a clearance so they were laying around not doing much anyway. Even then I spent way too much in time messing with them for minimal end return. If you can live with them as...

    Review- New Design Tendelux 10 Watt IR illuminator.

    Yeah, looked at my dead one again just now and don't see any way to get it open easily. No fastener hidden under the label on top. Hard to find anything thin enough to get between and under the edge of the front plastic that's strong enough to maybe pry it off.

    Review- New Design Tendelux 10 Watt IR illuminator.

    I had one fail and looked briefly at it but didn't see how it came apart in any easy way. Set it aside and forgot about it. I think the front assembly/internals may just be pressed into the metal frame.

    Review- New Design Tendelux 10 Watt IR illuminator.

    Oh yeah, I think I remember talking to you a long time ago about using that cam just as an IR source. Some cheap fluke pricing on it at Amazon at the time. Thought about getting one of those then too but already had a cam of similar design that I used for a long while before the DI10s...

    Could scuff it up some with a Scotch-Brite abrasive pad or similar I suppose. Might try that with one of mine.

    Using the Wyze Cam OG Telephoto as a low-cost daytime LPC camera

    Exactly right about the very high compression, poor low-light performance with motion, and limited ability to control much of anything. The Wyze V3 cams can look absolutely beautiful at night with a static image. But that breaks down badly with motion. I did put one of mine up for a while as...

    Review- New Design Tendelux 10 Watt IR illuminator.

    Yep, angled down to grass like that is what I was talking about. If you have a view where they're pointed more straight out and/or tipped up some not so bad. I've moved most of mine higher too more like an overview vs point-source. But guess it's better that they're brighter vs not. Can...

    Review- New Design Tendelux 10 Watt IR illuminator.

    That's what I was afraid of. I guess if you had an application where your interest is longer reach it would be better. None of mine are all that far out. Even the DI10 lights up the house across the street. Thanks, saved me the extra $10.

    Review- New Design Tendelux 10 Watt IR illuminator.

    I keep looking at those but always end up buying the DI10. How much of a practical difference is there between the two? I've been reluctant to get one mostly because the IR "hot spot" created by DI10 can be too much as it is depending on angle/distance/etc. Most of mine I've tipped to point...

    Questions on Blue Iris functionality and remote connection

    Depends how it's set up. Typically you'll have the option to route all of the client's traffic over the VPN or only that destined to whatever network with external traffic destined elsewhere not sent through it (e.g., Internet). Generally, I route everything through mine mostly so that I have...

    REINSTALL BlUE IRIS

    For future use, you can export/import your camera and other settings from the main BI setup page. Save that .reg file somewhere else. Then will be easier to get back to where you were when you fuck it up with more set up.

    Wall of shame

    You've got Velcro wraps on it. Done. What's the reason for the blue adapter going into port 1 on the Cisco switch? Looks like you could just plug the cable going into that adapter directly to the switch?

    BI Triggers (Motion) vs ONVIF triggers

    There's the official ONVIF Device Test Tool that will show you more but distribution is to ONVIF members only and it runs on Linux. You can find it to download but it will be on third-party sites so the usual warnings apply. There's a less full featured program called ONVIF Device Manager...

    Review- New Design Tendelux 10 Watt IR illuminator.

    Curious to see what you get. It shouldn't matter what the box says as far as a general product labeling. The barcoded Amazon number that also should be on the box should distinguish the two. If someone somewhere has screwed that up, then it will be a mess. I went though that with another...

    Review- New Design Tendelux 10 Watt IR illuminator.

    Looks like it. I wanted to get another and noticed that the regular D10 was unavailable for a little while. Glad to see they're back. Hopefully not back because they have mismarked stock and they're sending out what you got.

    UI 3 and green screen playback issue (again?)

    Haven't seen that for a long time after updates to BI/UI3 and browsers. Was a pain for a while. I never changed anything otherwise.

    Maybe literally in the Atlantic... Reports now that they popped it.

    It's already in North Carolina? That was quick.

    Computer vs. camera security

    It does assuming that the router/NAT/firewall doesn't let any traffic into your network other than that responding to requests originating from within the network. Which is how must all will default. So in that case, assuming that everything is working and not exploited in some way, no outside...

    Blue Iris and CodeProject.AI ALPR

    Yeah, taking the shutter up will help that a lot. Then can work from there.

    Computer vs. camera security

    Shouldn't have your computer directly exposed to the Internet either really. Wouldn't rely on the windows firewall for that.

    Live Cam Frame Blocking Bottom of Clips Column

    Yes. I'm sure they know. That's been happening since they made that change. To stop it, check the box for each cam under Video > Configuration that says Skip initial MAC, HTTP, DNS reachability tests.

    Live Cam Frame Blocking Bottom of Clips Column

    May have changed it. I'm on 5.6.6.1. Try clicking on the black border so that no cam is selected before going into the clips and see if that gives you the live view for the same cam. Not that it will make things much if any better if you don't like it to begin with.

    Live Cam Frame Blocking Bottom of Clips Column

    Yes, it appears and shows either the live view from the same cam as the clip that you're playing, or, if you have another the current live cam selected before going into the clips, the live view from it. I could take it or leave it. I don't see any way to turn it on or off.
