    Trigger blue iris with IVS?

    I don't like to add stuff to the underlying operating system. Everything is kept in separate isolated docker containers so nothing interferes with anything else. Since it's in a docker my docker operating system is the same as the developers so it will work exactly the same. It's easy to...

    NVR4208-8P-4KS2 versus NVR5208-8P

    A quick Google tells me smartpss is Windows software. Do I need to put smartpss on a Windows server to run 24/7, or is it just a Windows client I can run periodically on my desktop when I review the recordings and I let the cameras record direct to disk based on their individual setup, and the...

    NVR4208-8P-4KS2 versus NVR5208-8P

    I don't like that blue iris doesn't support IVs. I'm not sure if any of the Linux options support IVs however.

    CameraEvents Service - Dahua Events to mqtt

    I think everything just gets lumped together but I haven't spent much time looking into it.

    CameraEvents Service - Dahua Events to mqtt

    It's working. I haven't played around with all the events yet, so I'm not sure what's supported by the docker. Can the docker send different mqtt messages for different events so I can have a sensor for face detection in home assistant as well as for motion?

    Trigger blue iris with IVS?

    Hi Thanks for the script. I'm using this version here: johnnyletrois/dahua-watch However it looks like it sends mqtt post for camera on and off, However other events don't seem to post to MQTT. I think he hasn't finished the script on github? @johnnyletrios

    Dahua indoor varifocal with mic

    Yup. That was my other choice, the mini wedge. I was afraid it might not give enough detail for a baby cam. The room is about 3x3m approx in size and the ceiling height is 2.,4m. Can I get away with the mini wedge?

    Dahua indoor varifocal with mic

    If anyone can recommend a model, I'm a bit lost with so many options available. Would like to install on ceiling in baby room and have it zoomed into crib. Will have it zoomed out when baby is a toddler. Would like audio support (don't need 2 way).

    Dahua indoor varifocal with mic

    Hi I'm after a varifocal dahua for indoors with zoom and mic. Either supports an add-on mic or built in mic. Don't need full ptz. Prefer smaller form factor. Don't need ir lights on it, if it has ir need to be able to be switched off. Prefer h265 but suppose it doesn't really matter

    HDW4231 still a good option?

    I'm wondering about this to. I want a baby camera with audio for monitoring the crib and thought this would be a nice discrete small camera. This will be my first ip camera actually. My current network setup is all unifi gear and I have a server running Linux and docker for Plex / radarr /...

    Blue iris - noob questions: Integration with H.A. / Dahua vs Hikvision vs Ubiquiti

    Hi I am looking at setting up an NVR and motion captured recordings for 2-3 x POE cameras. I will run the NVR software on either an i3-2100 or i7-3770. The PC running the software also is a DIY nas. I use home assistant for home automation and it is running a raspberry pi. My gateway / router /...
