    I have a Dahua system 7 cameras and an NVR. I still have issues with the user interface, I find it very confusing, and the system randomly locks me out from viewing the cameras over IDMSS. I would like to run some kind of different software? Maybe Blue Iris? Not even sure where to start.

    Welcome @dbarcombe! Blue Iris is some of the best software I’ve ever used, and I’ve used quite a bit of software. A+ plus plus in my opinion.

    Thanks, I have been lurking around for a while and gaining some useful information! How would I run Blue Iris software on my current NVR?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please read the cliff notes and other items in the wiki. The wiki is in the blue bar at the top of the page.

    Read,study,plan before spending money

    You will need a standalone PC to run blue iris. There are a number of threads on purchasing a used PC for BI on ebay and other sites.
