    How to ignore raindrops streaking down the image?

    One of my cameras is outside, pointed toward our chicken feeder. We use this camera to observe nocturnal wildlife -- mostly rats, opossums and raccoons -- as they come to eat the chicken feed overnight while the chickens are safely locked in their coop. I had my alerts configured pretty well in...

    "Debounce" snapshots to reduce number of images stored?

    I got my HFW5231E-Z12E and it is very enthusiastic about storing a series of snapshots to my FTP when motion detection is triggered. I played with the anti-dither setting and looked around for anywhere that I can tell it "dude, ONE photo would be perfect, I don't need four to six of them per...

    I've been messing around with IPCams for about 15 years

    I've been trying to use IPCams for about 15 years now. I've used such horrors as DLink versions from circa 2003, a few versions of TrendNET IP cameras between 2007 and 2015, and of late have been using Dahua cameras. Up until recently, I had only used the Motion open source program (Motion -...

    Camera snapshots obscured by bounding box and blue squares

    In the camera/Record menu I have Jpeg snapshot set up to record every 2 seconds when triggered and this works well. However the resulting images show the bounding box and blue squares on the section of the image where motion occurred. This makes it difficult to identify the person causing the...

    Hikvision NVR arming schedule

    Hi! New to this forum. Please help. Anybody know if Hikvision NVR's can be set to have a motion alarm triggered for two time periods in one day? i.e. 7PM - 8AM overnight? From what I can tell, I can only go from 7PM to midnight each day, but I'd like it to continue throughout the next...

    Continuous or Motion Recording?

    Do you recommend continuous recording or just motion events? When I was mucking with NestCam it recorded continuously and it set markers that allowed a quick scrubbing of long videos and it was easy to save a clip. So, what do you recommend? Currently I’m running SecuritySpy on a Mac with...

    snapshot of motion only

    I have configured BI (version 4) to record continuously. I would like a snapshot of motion so I can breeze through pics for any triggers that look of importance. Under the Camera Properties "Record" tab, I have checked "Only when triggered" next to JPEG snapshot each (mm:ss). Problem is, it...

    Motion Detection: Benefits on Camera vs in BI?

    Hey guys, I've been running BI for several years now and have started slowly adding more cameras to my setup. I'm thinking about adding a few Dahua starlight models based on everyone's high recommendations here. I would ideally like to setup these new cameras for full time recording as well as...

    HDW5231R-Z always recording as motion?

    Hi all, Have a weird one here that is puzzling me. I have the 5231R-Z and set to record on motion and always record. That way if something happens, I can zoom into where the motion events were marked. I know IVS is probably the better solution but....it works for now. My neighbor bought 4 of...

    Motion vs trigger question

    First off, I figured this topic was better suited for "General Talk" than "Troubleshooting" as I don't think this is a problem but more of a misunderstanding of the BI software. So I hope I choose the right forum. Alright so I've been trying to tweak my outdoor Amcrest camera (IP2M-844E) to be...

    Needing an Alert when Blue Iris detects that Motion has stopped

    I am currently using I-Spy and it has the option to alert when no movement is detected. I use this to monitor Fan Blades and I need to know when they stop moving. I have tried the below settings which in theory should work but it does not. Alerts "Wait until Triggered at Least" Set this to 0...

    Recording continuous but marking where motion occurred?

    Hi, this might be a silly question but is it possible to record continuous in BI but also mark on the timeline where motion occurred or something similar. I like to record continuous as I've had problems in the past with it not triggering. It's not a huge deal as I have plenty of space to...

    Where is the API for motion and other events for Hikvision cameras documented?

    Where is the API for getting notifications for motion and other events from Hikvision cameras? I have a whole lot of DS-2CD2142FWD-IS units. Google search finds other people looking for the same thing, which is how I found about ipcamtalk! There is some python and node.js code out there, but...

    How do you disable logging/messages on motion detection?

    I'm saving logs to file, but I have a few cameras that trigger every couple of minutes, and they're polluting the log. Is there an option to turn off logging on motion?

    Dahua NVR motion triggering simultaneous recording on all channels

    I have two Dahua IP cameras recording to a Dahua NVR (software running on a Windows box). When motion is detected on one channel, all channels record a motion event for the exact same time window. There is absolutely no overlap in coverage between the two cameras so it's not like they're...

    How can I trigger a siren or strobe light with BI

    I want to trigger a sound file to play on a speaker like "hey get out of here" or siren or a strobe, or all three. How can I trigger all these? Most use 12v, so I need a relay and something to trigger the relay based on motion detection from a camera connected to BI. What is the best way to...

    New DS-2CD2142FWD-IWS owner questions and Event vs Motion.

    Hi. I own a DS-2CD2142FWD-IWS, and in "Storage > Schedule Settings > Record Schedule" I don't understand the difference between Motion and Event. Isn't Motion an Event? I have the S version, can I hook up a PIR sensor? Is having a local microSD card better or using a NAS drive? It seems like...
