    Type of Camera and placement (no eve)

    I'd like to place a camera in this area (towards the front of house forward of the door), but as you can see there is no eve to help protect the camera. Any ideas on what type of camera and how to best protect it? This camera would be watching the side gate/truck.

    Placement of camera; front of house

Also, I got the camera from aliexpress.com, which appears to be recommended by most people around here. Edit: This camera quality from testing...

    Placement of camera; front of house

    I want to add a camera outside that watches my driveway. The only issue I have is the way the house is built, there are no good placement options for the camera. I have a Dahua HDBW4631R-ZS and Junction box which makes it stick out pretty far. I have a CAT6 w/POE on the other side of the...

    Recommend Server off Ebay to run Blue Iris and Plex media server in seperate VM's?

    While not recommended, there are a few people that run BI as a VM, myself included. Currently I run it on a C2100 (L5630) with 4 cameras. CPU generally runs in the 45% range. I'm planning on adding a few more cameras in the future so I will likely be switching to a dedicated PC or upgrading my...

    Blue Iris UI3

    They are stored as MP4's as I have JPG's + plus a short clip emailed to myself when an alert is triggered. However it appears that BI will send me the clips as MP4 regardless what the recording format is. Let me change this over first to see if it addresses my issue. Edit: K-Lite Codecs did not...
