All the same. I have found the only way I get an alert that shows in the app is if I trigger it using the trigger link that we put in the ai software. And the one that triggers is if I use the original camera shortname, but nothing if I use the ai shortname.
That was it. Something so simple. In the AI software I did not name the camera the same as the ai camera in BI. Must have missed that or thought it was a non issue. Thank you for the all the help.What version of BI you have?
All my settings are for the latest one 184.108.40.206
For the trigger - assume you are running AI Tool on the same PC as BI? Did you add the BI IP address (with the correct format) so you dont need username and password to trigger? Get it working like that first and then tweak it it if you need username and password.
And yes for the trigger URL you need to use the camera shortname from BI and AI Tool. AI Tool doesn't even has a cameras short name field - only a name filed. If you look again at the photos I posted you will see the shortname is form BI.
With my configuration I get alerts (BI app and Telegram) and I can watch the alert clip/s in BI app.
Don't know the rules of this but you have made something great. Maybe setup a patreon or donation place for people to thank you for your hard work.I'm very happy to hear that my software is so helpful to many people, thank you for all the kind words!
Now regarding the several questions:
I've been and I am still very busy. I will try to answer everything thoroughly in a few weeks and maybe even release an update which hopefully fixes some of the mentioned problems (and some unmentioned ones that luckily no one noticed yet ). The weak explanation of how to set up the Telegram is a thorn in the flesh for me too, I'm planning to take of that aswell.
Meanwhile, I already wish everybody a calm Christmas time!
Together with some other pieces of information this helped to find the reason for this issue, thanks! Forum member @Alan_F and I fixed this and we implemented that it optimally only takes 10ms to load the image. And in case it takes longer, there is no error but instead the software tries several times again. I think that this automatic process is the most user-friendly solution, I generally try to omit overwhelming configuration options in favor of usability, especially if it's something that "should just work".My system has been running flawlessly for some time but last night I did some housekeeping and installed a new disk drive. I was copying all the files from a 500Gb hard drive to a 6T drive and I kept getting the errors you mentioned. Both drives didn't have any of the image files on and neither are the location where they are saved. The CPU was only running at about 40% so not maxed out and I have plenty of available RAM.. As soon as the copy was finished then no more errors.
If the problem still exists, please write me a PM so that we try to discover the reason.Thanks for your help, I have tried this with no luck. I can access the deep stack server by typing localhostort and can accesses it from other computers on the same network so im not quite sure what's going wrong
regarding the URL: I suspect that AiTool is not able to use the authentication credentials in this case.Fantastic app. Thank you for releasing this!
I have setup this and it is working almost perfectly except for the following error when trying to call a url:
[16.11.2019, 20:40:54]: trigger url:
[16.11.2019, 20:40:54]: -> Trigger URL called.
[16.11.2019, 20:40:54]: -> Trigger URLs called.
Is there something in my URL that isnt supported?
Update: Used a URL shortener to strip out the extra stuff. Not ideal but it works now!
Second question: I see in the release notes I can notify based on the type of object detected - what is the syntax for the URL? Sorry if I am blind...
1. I never tried it but here is the documentation on how to install DQAI on a Raspberry https://python.deepstack.cc/raspberry-piHey everyone!
So I just read through the whole thread and have a few questions.
1. Has anyone tried running the AI in something like a Raspberry Pi and having it watch a folder in your VMS pc? I think I have enough overhead on my VMS to run the AI, but offloading it would be nice for adding more camera's in the future.
1a. If something like a Raspberry Pi doesn't have enough oomph, would a second cheap intel nuc or other lower spec system be ideal?
2. It seems like the original intention was for the AI to only review images saved by BI when motion was detected. As we all know normal motion detection kinda sucks so can I just feed the AI a constant stream of images (like 1/sec or 1 per 4 sec) and let it handle the "motion" detection and alerts?
I think I had more questions, but I can't remember them now so I'll just try things out when I get home today and see what else I come across!
I've considered such a feature (only alert when something actually changes) months ago and I'm willing to program it, I just lack the time to do it.I'm monitoring the street which has some parked cars. Whenever there is a motion detection (let's say falling leafs, rain etc), it always detects the parked cars and sends the trigger to BI (I set to detect all objects including people, cars, cats etc). How do I detect only new passing cars which weren't there before? Can it somehow compare before (let's say 2 parked cars)/after images (2 parked and 1 passing) and if there is a new object (car) then it would send the trigger to BI?
I've done away with clones of cameras and it works great. I just fond having a clone wasn't necessary, I could do all the different settings in BI and using profiles. I don't record continuously but still record all the BI motion clips.I ended up not creating separate copies of cameras. I do continuous record and added as a second option to save images every 5 seconds while motion is still detected. I didn't want duplicate camera copies and this worked perfectly.
How did you deal with all the alert thumbnails without clones? Or were you not using that feature?I've done away with clones of cameras and it works great.
