Hello,

Until recently I've been using Sighthound for about 3 years and it works fairly well besides some false deer notifications.
I've now bought BI with Deep stack and will try it out for a while.

What are the pros and cons with sighthound VS BI/DS? Which has the best recognition software?

ive been using sighthound since the old Vitamin D days. I have always thought it works ok for what i need it for.

That being said, they are going to stop supporting this program on the mac within a year or so. The devs say it runs alot better on a PC/

curious to see if you got your BI set up? DO you like it? How well does the AI work compared the Sighthound?

I paid the sighthound subscription again to get access to the new update. Haven't had any false alarms in 2 months and I´m very happy with that.
Only issue, which is a big one is a really buggy app. It takes forever to load videos and I´m getting "server not reachable at this time" very very often. BI works better in that matter.

Sighthound pros:
Super easy setup
Accurate detection
Webhook notifications, if that´s something you have knowledge setting up (I don´t)

Sighthound Cons
No way of controlling settings except in the app. In other words, no wat to set up scenes with your home automation. BIG con for me
Notification delays sometimes
Slow buggy app, for streaming clips and live stream

To be honest, I haven't played around enough with BI yet to give an honest opinion.

Sighthound is good, but it misses a lot of features to make it a really good platform, from what the potential is with an image recognition software.
