The specific camera schedule will override the global and do exactly what you want. Leave inactive where you want the global to be active and draw in the profile you need for the days and time you want.
You can clone the camera in BI (duplicate it). Both BI cameras will use the same stream from the same camera and use almost no additional CPU cycles as a single BI camera. Each can have their own complete set of settings. I have 12 cameras and all are cloned and setup similar to what you want.
I upgraded 2 days ago. For those still doing Step 0, it's time to jump.
All profiles were intact and accurate. I have 2 global schedules, 6 profiles, 12 cameras all duplicated so 24 cameras in BI. Very happy with the process.
I can't speak to your system but, on my system on most days it has eliminated 100% of false alerts. I am often gone for several days at a time traveling. Once in a while one will sneak through. I did spend a lot of time fine tuning alerts prior to Sentry which I think helps but would still...
Selecting Intel on the Camera Properties page overrides the setting on the Options Camera page.
Set the Camera Properties to default and it will use whatever is on the Options Page. This way you can turn HA on/off for all cameras with one change on the Options Page.
It's the frame that caused the trigger and not the frame that is sent with the SMS. (Is that the same frame as the alert thumb?) The SMS image is the image that is current when BI receives the positive indicator back from Sentry. Usually 5-12 seconds apart.
I have about a 90%+ success rate...
The other side of the coin.
I also ran Sentry thru the trial period but ultimately decided for it.
There were a few reasons:
1) I'm not tin foil hat paranoid and I have any indoor cameras that are disabled when home.
2) $50/yr isn't a bad price, I have (12 total) and I just left 2 off the...
The main differences are lack of audio (mic) and only a main stream (no secondary streams). If you don't need these two items save the money and go with 2231s. Buy 5231s only where you need either item.
My understanding is the motion needs to be present in any zone for the make time duration before zone crossing starts "looking" for crossing into another zone. Once the crossing is confirmed the trigger is tripped. This is not confirmed or proven, just what I've concluded from experminting...
The image you get via SMS or email isn't the image sent to Sentry. It's the current image when BI gets the Positive back from Sentry. Usually 5-7 seconds after the trigger image. (It's the time taken to send image to Sentry, Sentry to process and send a positive back to BI and for BI to send...
