Got the POE doorbell cam hooked up to BI but the blue circle around the doorbell button won’t breathe when anyone approaches. What am I missing??

That’s selected. I even have the motion set and turned on in the PC app.
Do you have motion set to the highest sensitivity ? I noticed the blue light comes on and off during the day intermittently with sensitivity set to the lowest, so I just set it to the highest, will test shortly.

Hmmm… I’ll have to test that. I believe it’s set right in the middle as I have just turn the motion settings back on in the pc app in hopes the circle light would work.

Dude, this doorbell I tell ya... it's been quite a journey for me so far with my Reolink PoE doorbell.

As of now, I have a lot of things working well, except for live viewing of the mainstream via BlueIris. Live viewing is choppy. Recordings are perfect. Viewing the RTSP/RTMP stream via VLC is perfect.

This happens with both RTSP and RTMP. FPS in the BI web interface jumps all over the place. Any suggestions? Here is a video:

Odd, I don't have any issues. I switched from wifi to ethernet to solve intermittent dropouts which I assumed (correctly) it was the wifi.

Edit: my unit is the non-poe version.
I am not having any dropouts persay -- just a pretty choppy livestream.

Where are you getting this info? From your phone? UI3?

Noticed my FPS does not jump all over the place when I lower to 720p

I have experimented with all of the different stream qualities. It does get better when I drop it down super low but that's still not even what it should be. It will go down as low as 3 FPS even at 720p.
I mean, at least the recordings are perfect ... I just don't have the knowledge of understanding why the recording would be great but why I can't get a half decent livestream.

Assuming you played with lowering your bitrate too
