    Mobile Profile/Viewing Suggestions

    Hello, I was hoping I could get help troubleshooting my mobile viewing lag. Using an S10 and the blue iris app, live viewing typically has no issue on LAN or WAN, but viewing recordings is hit or miss. 80% of the time it works with less then 2 seconds delay. Other times though, it takes 5+...

    Using NVR with Blue Iris

    I bought 5 dahua cameras and a Dahua NVR. I prefer Blue Iris over SmartPSS, i was able to connect my pc to the NVR through blue iris but it will only display the camera on Port 1 of the NVR. Any ideas how to get blue iris to read the individual ports of the NVR so I can display all the cameras?

    I'm looking to replace my current cameras and add 4 more, so I'll need to upgrade my Blue Iris machine since it tops out at CPU usage a lot.

    Automatically upload Blue Iris motion alerts to AWS cloud

    The paranoid person in me says that if someone breaks into my house, the PC will be one of the primary targets to grab and with it the majority of my footage. Internal microSDs in the cameras are more likely to remain, but could be taken by a determined burglar and I honestly haven't tested out...

    What EliteDesk for BI?

    @fenderman as I recall your recent favorite PC for BI is an HP EliteDesk. I spent a couple of hours studying the different models and searching the net... is there a certain sweet spot model? I assume 800 G4 is too new and the G1 is too old. What would you be looking for today for your personal...

    Hi all, Is there a way to let a user see the recordings AND forward/rewind a record from the same day? I'm notice that the "security officer" user cant do it... is it related to the "clips and archiving" setting? Thanks!
