My next door neighbor's behavior has changed and large number of alerts are generated. Long story short: new family moved next door, runs dryer at night, cold weather causes a fog/condensate that triggers motion sensor.

I've changed the two affected camera's individual schedules to ones with no motion capture from just after sundown (a fixed guess) to 11 pm. Would love to be able to control this based upon temperature (during the summer no fog/condensate is generated). Also, it would be great if I could adjust the individual schedule to be based upon true sundown.

I'm still on BI 4.

TIA

You can change profiles with http commands. You would need to write your own code to send these commands based on weather.
You can set profiles relative to sunrise/down. See the schedule tab.
You may simply eliminate that area from the trigger zone.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll look into the http commands. I do have the global schedules relative to sunrise/down, but do not know how to set the individual camera (overrides global) schedule relative to sunrise/down.

Regrettably the fog/condensate covers the entire zones of both cameras :(

You have two options. There is an option to set the individual camera override schedule relative to sunrise and sunset. I am pretty sure this was present in BI4. It certainly is in BI5.
Alternatively, in your second profile, simply copy all the settings for the rest of your cam so they remain the same and simply change the settings on the two affected cameras.
Consider using zone crossing if you are not already doing so or using some sort of ai like deepstack (free, see threads on two options in the blue iris AI subforum here) or sentry for about 5 bux a month. You will need to upgrade to BI 5.
