Hello all! I’m a very busy traveling businessman. I’ve been using Blue Iris since it began & love the product. All my ip cameras are outdoors. I believe it was fenderman who steered me towards using the old X-10 MS16A wireless IR motion sensors. Worked flawlessly until Win10 & BI5 came along. Still back then I was getting a lot of false alerts, especially in bright sunshine. Briefly viewing the introductory YouTube Sentry video & the analytics behind the software, would be a great partner for BI5.

I’ll hold off on purchasing the SeaLevel USB interface that I had planned to get along with a highly-priced DSC IR-microwave sensor until I get current users take on Sentry as to whether it would be good for my system:

Lenovo TinyPC93
Win10 64bit
Blue Iris 5.0
2 x ACTI D32 bullet ip cameras
1 x Dahua SD52C225U-HNI PTZ

Thanks in advance to those who reply!

I can't speak to your system but, on my system on most days it has eliminated 100% of false alerts. I am often gone for several days at a time traveling. Once in a while one will sneak through. I did spend a lot of time fine tuning alerts prior to Sentry which I think helps but would still get a few false alerts anytime of day or night.

Do you have a PTZ camera in your system? Was wondering if this improves Auto-Tracking.
