    Email Alerts

    My email alerts used to send tons of emails when they were triggered by motion, now I am triggering them with my security system only. That part works fine but I only receive about 3 emails. per camera. They do appear to follow the break time setting. Is this normal? I'd think I'd get constant...

    Blue Iris on a SmartWatch?

    Now that smart watches are actually getting pretty powerful and you can even get them with standalone 4G etc. Anyone know if there is any possibility of blue iris on a watch? Android or apple? That's one thing I'd love to have if I got one of the 4G standalone watches.

    Fanless switch recommendations.

    Looking for recommendations for a fan less switch, probably as many ports as I can get for being fanless, gigabit would be nice but since it will run mostly IP cams not that big a deal.

    electronics question

    I took a POE midspan and bought two big quiet fans off amazon, I cut off the connectors for the stock fans and spliced them onto the new fans, I plug them in, power up the midspan, the fans spin but the damn thing doesn't boot, anyone have any ideas? do I need to fake it out somehow?

    Anyone know why when I try to connect to my bi page from the internet on my phone it logs me in but does not display the cameras? it works fine inside of the networking using the local IP, I would say maybe it's a firewall thing but it used to work fine with the un-encrypted site before I...

    SD59225U-HNI upgrade issues.

    Decided to make a thread, I saw where another guy got this error and I think he said he used a different firmware but he never said, I messaged him and got no response. When I try to upgrade to the march firmware with the config tool, I get this. Was gonna try this version of the firmware...

    Passive POE injectors

    just wanted to verify, if you have a POE injector that say goes up to 15 watts and you plug in something that only uses 8.5, will is hurt your device or will the device just only use what it needs? I know the passive devices are kinda dumb.

    So my Midspan won't run without fans.

    Does anyone know of any fairly cheap drop in fairly quiet replacements for fans like this? Plugs in to this, I need two fans.

    Mic audio settings.

    Does anyone know if cranking the mic quality settings up all the way adds significant storage usage?

    Threw up the front door cam today.

    This is zoomed all the way out, I was pooped so I haven't taken any snapshots to see what kind of pixel density I'm getting, might be able to zoom it in a little but it's a rough spot with a walkway on the right side of the frame and an opening on the left side.
  17. hmjgriffon seems to have broken basic auth

    camera installation docs

    I know I asked something similar before but I know there are dudes in here that do this for a living. Are there any resources online you can point me to for things like price sheets on what to charge for installing cameras? I have a few people now who want me to install stuff and I want to be...

    Streaming IP cams to youtube/facebook

    I can stream to youtube with ffmpeg fine but I wanted to test out streaming an IP cam to facebook live with their API. I couldn't get it to work with ffmpeg, probably user error, but that only lets you stream one camera anyways. I downloaded OBS (open broadcaster software) and it lets me bring...

    I see there is an audio section that looks like you can connect a mic to the blue iris machine, and there is a way to play sounds off the BI machine to external speakers, but is there a way to talk into the mobile app and have it come out of the external speakers?

    driveway alarm

    cheapest driveway alarm that can be rigged up to a z-wave sensor, go! I'm assuming I can't use one of those cheap bunker hill ones from harbour freight because I'd need 0 voltage dry contacts. I may get one of those anyways for now but i'd love to be able to connect it into my home automation...
