    So BIT interfaces with BI, and can pass it overlay information. Could BIT retrieve overlay information from a Raspberry Pi and pass it to BI? Can BIT trigger a BI alert? What I'm thinking of is perhaps a Raspberry Pi that is monitoring an alarm system or temperature probes?

    So I just installed BIT and playing around with some weather settings. @bp2008, great ad on utility.

    One thing I noticed is that when I enable a script to just overlay the temp on one camera, BI automatically overlays the date and time.

    Is there a way to just overlay the temp?

    The date and time is already overlayed from the camera and I don't want it overlayed from BI.

    In BI, go to "Camera properties", "video tab", next to "enable overlays" (leave checked), click on "Edit" button, click once on the offending date/time overlay to highlight it, press "delete" key on keyboard, click on "OK"
