Hi all... I just purchased Blue Iris from here on the site and am about to start buying cameras. Can you tell me if I can manage the Active Deterrence features of the Uniview cameras with Blue Iris, either set it up on the Univew software then let Blue Iris collect video from it or manage it totally. I live on 65 remote acres and that red and blue light at night would be handy.

Thank you.

You would set up the active deterrence on the camera itself. Blue Iris will not be able to control and manage the camera - you may be able to do some PTZ presets and move the camera around, but Blue Iris is basically a recorder of the video stream. But provided you set the active deterrence up in the camera, then yeah Blue Iris will record the video stream ( disclaimer - provided it isn't a cloud based camera with proprietary video streaming - don't want you thinking you could buy an arlo and have it work - if the camera is ONVIF compliant then you should be good - and from Nelly's it should be)
