    This is the ONLY thing that worked for me.

    Mini outdoor PTZ : DS-2DE4A220IW-DE

    Note that price doesn't include shipping. Shipping is another $53 so basically $400 even out the door.

    Mini outdoor PTZ : DS-2DE4A220IW-DE

    Looking at getting the DS-2DE4A425IW-DE. The least expensive I can find it branded from a USA authorized seller is $600. Then there's the aliexpress route for just over half that cost: Hikvision Darkfighter 4mp 25x Optical Zoom 16x Digital Zoom Network Speed Dome Ir Poe Ptz Ds-2de4a425iw-de...

    CUDA power consumption...

    Removing the Nvidia card resulted in a 5 watt drop in power consumption. It didn't matter that I'd moved the two monitors to the Intel mother board. Simply having the card plugged in draws extra power. I did notice that the UI is substantially slower and more sluggish using the native graphics.

    Will do.

    CUDA power consumption...

    That's for the entire tower, not just the CPU. Also, I shut down BI, it drops to 28 watts for the entire tower.

    CUDA power consumption...

    I would too if my cpu usage was already high but it isn't. It's not even a dedicated machine but it's also not used for gaming or anything heavy. What is your scenario in which you'd rather have the higher power consumption and more gpu load in favor of less cpu load? The only thing I can think...

    High cpu

    Just for comparison, I have 14 cameras ranging from 1 to 5 MP on an I7-8700 and am sitting at about 14% cpu.

    High cpu

    Are these new camera profiles? I assume you turned off overlays and selected direct to disk? Also what was your cpu load prior to the change?

    I decided NOT to subscribe to Sentry…

    Same here especially if I can adjust when images are sent from the start of detection and how many images. I had too many false negatives with only a single image. Being able to send up 4 or 5 would be more helpful. Also, consider that with more than 1 image from a scene you far more easily...

    CUDA power consumption...

    Just setup new open box XPS 8930 16GB I7-8700 machine that I got for $499 (it came out last year). It replaces a Sandy Bridge i7-2600s (lower power version). BI was running at about 25% of cpu consuming about 85 watts on the Kill-O-Watt on the Sandy Bridge machine. The new machine with Intel...

    Reolink - good & bad

    Seeing this thread updated in my email just poked me to update my response. Reolink sucks. I've now had so many issues ranging from audio input not working on certain models (that they knew about), completely wrong specs/features in their Amazon descriptions, auto focus on the 411s not working...

    Sentry User Feedback

    We really need better notification customization for different sources. Just like you can setup notifications for failed cameras, we need notifications for other failed source types so that we an either send those notifications or filter them where we receive them. The current alerts don't have...

    Sentry User Feedback

    Does this mean you'd get a false positive if you're only expecting an SMS when a person is detected? Maybe this explains all of the false positives I started getting in the middle of the night. I had to turn it off for now until I can confirm that issue is fixed.

    Sentry Smart Alerts is too expensive for me

    I tried Sighthound twice and each time it performed abysmally. Basically it called anything that moved a person. 95% of what it detected as a person was a false positive.

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    Not only that, but if Sentry is using deep learning vision classification, having the ability for the community to "train/fine tune" it by providing one button feedback would be pretty awesome. You wouldn't need engineers to evaluate each report.

    Won't Sentry integration with BI diminish desire to improve detection in BI?

    What you're worried that Ken won't do is exactly what he's doing by opening up the product to third party integration. With the right extensible plugin architecture, BI could be the hub to an entire ecosystem of complimentary third party development that integrates with BI's core mission.

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    Yes, the 3 cameras that had Sentry enabled are the only 3 cameras that have the "send SMS" checkbox on and configured.

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    I had to turn Sentry off. Too many SMS and "execute program" alerts getting through without any way to tell the difference between motion and person.

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    I had ONE false positive so far. That's an event tagged with the Sentry logo when there had never been a person in sight. It was still dark a few days ago around 5:30 am and the announcement throughout the house really got our adrenaline going. But what I'm getting now are SMS notifications...

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    OK, this is unfortunate, but I'm starting to have my SMS alerts fire on regular motion instead of just when a person is detected. Currently, since there's no way configure this for just Sentry only or even post filter through a proxy because there is no meta data tagging to tell me when it's a...

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    So is that a confirmation that you're pulling more frames throughout the motion alert?

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    Ahh. That. Yea, I've set that to different values depending on the camera. Just never noticed it was called "MAKE time".

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    Sam, was there any change today? I got over a dozen notifications all in scenarios that used to fail and all attached images now showing the person right in the middle. Was there a change you made on your end without me needing to update BI? Or is it just random happy coincidence that I got a...

    What is "make time"? Is that something we can set in our camera profiles??

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    Thanks Sam. Do we need to update BI or does your plugin auto update or the change on the service side?

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    Mine unchecked without doing anything in between. I didn't even restart and I didn't edit any profiles. They were just unchecked.

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    Well this is getting very strange. The last Sentry tagged event occurred today at 10:25 am. I just got home to review the logs and realized there was a 100% failure rate after that. I checked the 3 cameras I'm testing with and the Sentry checkbox was off on all three!!!! In addition, even...

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    It seems like the only long term solution going forward is to feed more frames, like at a least 1 a second back to the service. I know that will probably increase costs some but hopefully it scales non linearly.

    What is your experience with Sentry?

    Also, depending on the plugin architecture that was implemented in BI to allow you to integrate, allowing the customer to configure how alerts are handled for each alert type including whether or not Sentry is the sole consumer of an alert type could be handled by a customer configuration page...
