I am using Blue Iris tools to monitor Blue Iris. When Blue Iris Tools notices that Blue Iris is down, I have it restart the app. When it does this I was using the Launch URL in the Watch Dog controls to send an http request to my home automation system to let it know to refresh the camera pages on the touchscreens to restart the video feed from Blue Iris.

When it does this, I see a pop-up window on top of Blue Irish Tools asking for me to select the file to save the JSON request.

The command - below - results in a page with “{ "Response":"ok" }” on the page. I am trying to see if this can be done with no response but I doubt it, as the response is of course intended to let you know that it worked.

There might be a way to redirect the response in the http command but I haven't figured that out yet.

If any one has any ideas on how to solve this - please do let me know.
