    ConfigTool Mobile Dahua on android!

    ....Not a chance. I don't install any phone apps that have less than a few hundred thousand previous DLs or reviews...I let the other suckers try them out first.

    Using IVS rules in BI for PTZ Camera

    Should this work with any Dahua camera? For instance, my 5231z

    F-ing Spider Webs!

    AARRGGHHH!, Dang tiny floating spider webs already this spring causing dozens of falsies! I hate them and cannot ever figure out how to adjust setting to avoid these triggers from webs or the spider itself or other flying creatures. Using zones is useless, contract change value, no use, nor...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    May possibly be based on modeling \ percentage prediction and current population...The lady already backtracked a bit.

    Tips for minimising false alerts

    How do you connect motion sensors to BI other than through the camera I/Os...if they have them. My 5321s do not. If you are referring to the Digital IO and IoT tab discussed in the help file that lets BI "interact with external systems or hardware devices" using Adruino boxes, Sealevel?, com...

    Can I recover deleted BI clips?

    Yeah, I was trying to see some contractor activity at a specific time that day. There is a lot of space on the drive but being a week later, odds of even partial overwrite are probably high I'd think as I believe it is a random thing what available drive space is used. oh well, lesson learned.

    Can I recover deleted BI clips?

    I have a camera set to record 24/7. BI breaks recordings into 1 hr clips. I have a new 8TB hard drive, so it has plenty of space for several weeks...problem is when I went to review some of the clips from 2/12 I noticed it only went back to 2/13...Then I realized I had the stored Clips and...

    Tips for minimising false alerts

    So how \ where are you using this? Are you only triggering the camera when someone drives into your driveway across the sensor path or is it sensitive enough to trigger when someone walks by? I have several of the Dahua 5321s, popular on this site ...which have no sensor inputs so I get all...

    Junction Box for the 70mm Square Mount Cameras

    That's pretty nice and clean! I'd like to install something similar, but horizontally...where do you find mfg spec instructions?

    Tips for minimising false alerts

    There are lots of threads on optimizing your settings to avoid false alarms but IMO they do not make a huge difference...(or I'm just not doing it right either). Some cameras have PIR built into them instead of just video motion detection, but I do not know if they would be able to trigger BI...

    Amcrest Surveillance Pro 2.0 Beta (Windows)

    I have not yet used SmartPSS or Amcrest Surv software. Does this work for any model cameras or only Dahua and Dahua rebrands?

    Why do people keep their car door's unlocked, or

    The Po-Po won't even mess with a report here in St. Louis unless it is tied to a carjacking or murder...which seems to be more the norm in this city now...and even then there are so many nothing ever gets solved. A year or two ago a guy shot 2 kids stealing stuff out of his car and served no...

    Coronavirus delays?

    Not sure I'd want a package handled by a few dozen people in China who may have coughed or sneezed on your order before coming to your door right now...or at least opt for SLOW delivery ha-ha. :nervous: According to health.com, “Flu viruses can survive on hard surfaces (like bus poles) and...

    How do I add a wireless network card?

    Hi, A couple of slightly related questions if you don't mind... 1) What is the use \ purpose of a 2nd NIC? Is it only to keep sec cameras on their own network while you use the computer to surf the net? 2) if they are on a 2nd nic with no access to the internet, does that mean there is no way...

    Review-Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam

    I have not read all 30 pages through so I fear repeating this question but I thought I saw somewhere a discussion about how you can only do motion detection on one of the two cameras? Is that correct or can you set both \ either combination of motion detect and\or 24/7 recording using Dahua NVR...

    Invalid Command Line error on BI start up after reboot

    Thanks Interesting you say that because I literally just DID a rebuild the Win 10 system install from scratch about a month ago. From scratch as in formatted hard drive and started over with the latest image. I've only added BlueMoon, BI and Horizon VMware (one program) since the fresh...

    Invalid Command Line error on BI start up after reboot

    Forgot to mention I was going to check the logs from the prior post suggestion but don't know how to do that. I deleted the BI instal exe from the download file and the error stopped. No new error in it's place. I guess whatever in Windows was referencing in on startup said, "oh well, I...

    Invalid Command Line error on BI start up after reboot

    I searched the reg and found 7 entries with "downloads\blueiris " in them (attached)....No idea why the registry needs all these references to a download exe that in theory would never be used but the reg is a mystery to me anyway. How does Windows even operate with this much crap in the...

    Invalid Command Line error on BI start up after reboot

    The error pops up immediately after rebooting windows and entering my Windows password. Here is a new screen print with the error and other information from the task manager.

    Invalid Command Line error on BI start up after reboot

    BI itself is not starting at boot. Once the computer boots I still have to launch it manually. But BI is trying something at boot up and throwing the error. It is not causing any issues I can see. I click OK and it goes away. I am just trying to find out what the BI error is about and why...

    Invalid Command Line error on BI start up after reboot

    Not running it as a service, just however it runs when you install it. Never used the event viewer so not sure what I'd be looking for in there or where. I browsed through Windows log folders but saw nothing referencing BI.

    Invalid Command Line error on BI start up after reboot

    Changing the shortcut or going directly to the executable makes no difference. The error message is before the app starts. To be more specific the BI error message occurs on Windows boot up, even though BI does not open and is not set to open or restart on boot up. So it is as if BI is...

    Invalid Command Line error on BI start up after reboot

    No just running it however it defaulted when installed. I start it with the shortcut it created which points to: "C:\Program Files\Blue Iris 5\BlueIrisAdmin.exe" I used the Microsoft media creation tool.

    Invalid Command Line error on BI start up after reboot

    I started fresh with new Windows 10 build and BI 5 (latest ver as of today). When I reboot Windows and open BI it pops up an 'Invalid Command Line error' message box. So far I do not see that it causes any issues. I just close it and go on but am of course curious if anyone else has had this...
