    Just a quick one....

    Not sure what spooked it... and with that-- I went to this camera (4mp, 1/3 sensor) and it NEVER TRIGGERED..... grrrrrr... it was walking right through a zone. I have BI take a pic every 10 minutes-- by chance that pic caught the deer in the street. You can see the shadow more than the deer...

    Could someone make a "PTZ for Noobs" tutorial?

    My neighbor had some punks steal some things from his garage a few nights ago. They actually rode the stolen scooters down the sidewalk in front of my house just after midnight. Of course, my video from 2 cams was not real helpful with 2.8 lenses at 35 feet or so moving fast at night. (pic...

    Security cam footage of a traffic stop outside a home. The deputy has a jammed weapon in the middle of this, clears the jam, and finally lands enough rounds to stop the threat.

    Must...... Have..... More.....

    This incident and video have showed to me the glaring issues at my front door--- and I think this kid gets it. This was obviously a middle-schooler friend of my daughter playing a not-so-funny prank. When I lived in California, criminals would use a knock & run or ding-dong-ditch to "test"...

    US Presidential Election 2020 (& Politics) :)

    LOTS of posts all over the map regarding politics have taken over the COVID thread. Pretty much derailed that thread as a COVID-only discussion. I understand the political nature of various COVID response strategies in various states, and that off-shoot of the pandemic discussion resulted in...

    New Networking Rack...

    Just thought I'd share a few pics of the new rack I will be installing. I popped open the package today and put it together. I've never had a rack at home, and others may be interested in upgrading from a random shelf with a pile of electronics on it. :)...

    Time to Retire?

    This 1.3mp Dahua bullet has been going since December of 2012. I have been irritated lately that it keeps dropping off the network / disconnecting --- often several times per hour. When you think of it, over 7 years of service from an inexpensive piece of electronics is actually really pretty...

    Video quality issue....

    hey there... This is new cam from Andy-- a low-end 4mp turret. Look at the sample video below-- it is filled with "ghost" trails with movement and the video of me is really noisy and grainy. This was last night-- I changed the bitrate to the max-- it was at 2048 CBR when this vid was...

    Can you disable a cam with a.....

    LASER. Seriously-- someone insinuated they could come by and hit my cams with a laser and kill them. Possible? Or is this the stuff of movies.... LOL. Google yielded this result--- I wondered about any experiences among those on the forum.... https://ipvm.com/reports/lasers-cameras

    SSD's? Safe and reliable for video server???

    Is the continuous writing & deleting of video data excessively HARD on SSD drives? I am considering replacing a 1tb hard drive in a 5 year old system with an SSD as the boot / C: drive.... Will a Blue Iris server be excessive and shorten the longevity (and reliability) of an SSD?
