    Hi @jazzy1

    Not if you need a better low light image, or a tighter FOV to get more pixels on target.

    @looney2ns, You mentioned that you can speak into the camera using the gDMSS app, so it has two-way audio capabilities? Do you know if this will work with the Blue Iris App on iOS?

    Yes, this function was just added. Simply select the camera in the BI dropdown.
    If you want to use the PIR to trigger blue iris and also use audio you need to follow these directions.

    Note that as usual, the audio is half duplex, not full.

    Thanks Fenderman. I think this camera would work perfect for my front door then.

    Yes, that is an ideal location for this camera. You can automate a message for BI to send to the camera when you are away or at night to let house door checkers/knockers know they are being watched.

    This looks like a decent replacement for our current front door camera. We are using an Hikvision DS-2CD2432F-IW 3MP 2.8mm right now. The videos here that are not obviously ceiling mounted are where we would look to replace. Would also be handy to have a functioning speaker and a true outdoor camera.

    Hi Andy, do you know if there are any 2019 turrets due with the 1/1.8" sensor please?

    I need to increase the MP of my overview camera due to a neighbour causing problems up and down our street!

    Thanks in advance

    @fenderman I am trying to figure out how to turn the siren off. Every time I move the camera, the siren goes off. I don't see anywhere in the setting to turn it off. Do you know how to turn the siren off? Thanks!

    Some reason the audio is so quiet. I have the noise cancellation turned off and the mic and speaker at 100.
