    There are lots of home automation systems that can accomplish that. If you are looking for something "rather" easy. Look into the samsung "smartthings" products. The basic hub and products are pretty easy to use and there is a GREAT BlueIris connector to connect the two products.

    All I can say is, thank you. Because I need to save a clip from earlier today (while still installing the damn things!), and I have no idea how to do that. Or anything. Your videos are going to save me.

    So, there is no way to set an in and end point for a certain camera and to export the same time frame from other cameras all at once?? That seems like a major shortcoming.

    no. this is not available on NVR's either. youll survive i promise. how often do you intend to export video from multiple cameras?
    you can email support and ask for the function or alternatively check out network optix at 70 dollars per camera but missing lots of other features BI has.

    Great videos. Just wondering, you say you normally only use zone crossing during the day (to cancel shadow movements). But how do you cut down on false triggers during the night then ?

    Yeah, I am struggling with the same thing regarding shadows and lights from cars driving down the street at night as well. I keep trying to play with settings but still have so many false triggers. The videos have been a tremendous help though for other stuff.

    Go to Blue Iris "Options", then "users", highlight the user then select "Edit" and go put in new password and write it down somewhere.

    BTW, Blue Iris has great built-in "Help" (the big question mark at the top).

    Hi tony - thanks for that
    Just another question about the BI tutorial:- is there some where where all the tutorials are in one place.
    I seem to find them scattered everywhere - because they are extremely helpful.
    How do I get in touch with the author of these - he is to be commended
    cheers' Peter

    Hi Dasstrum
    I must sincerely thank you for uploading such informative videos in regards to Blue Iris.
    I have a quick question:- I have a camera in France due to the poor/slow French network it keeps going off line and then back on line.
    As the camera goes off & On - I get a email message every time. I checked the Alerts/Action section and nothing is ticked - so why do I get an email message - its got me beat

    Check watchdog profile in alerts. That's is what's sending email when cam goes offline

    Dasstrum love your BI walkthrough videos!
    I learned the basics the hard way, reading, searching, tinkering + trial and error. You videos are perfect. I still picked up loads of great tips in the videos. I really appreciate the time, effort and the quality of the content in your videos. Thank you!

    Nice work for a new like me it really will be helpful, can you do a video about configuring remote access? Do you need to do this to get the BI app to work?

    You must configure port forwarding on your router to access BI from outside your network.
