I am impressed with the accuracy from the onboard AI but with regards to BI recording the triggers it seems to vary wildly. What I mean is when you click the image to load the video of the event BI+ DS usually takes you to the begins of the trigger. With the cam AI Blue Iris
seems to randomly pick where to take you on clicking it. Sometimes the car is just coming into view, sometimes it is just leaving the cameras field of view. While other times it shows nothing. I have tried using BI and cam AI alone. I've tried it with BI+DS to tag/label the motion object that was triggered. That at least tells me it was a car with 89% for example. But again BI and DS's clip that it found sometimes does not show anything, like what I am seeing when I actually view the clips. I have to manually wind it back to see the trigger. It captures the trigger every time though. I tried every permutation and combination of IVS with car/person/intrusion/trip wire/appears/enters/etc but I get the same results. So, I then tested SMD with human and motor vehicle. I made motion zones for just the areas I was interested in and told it to look for people/cars in those areas. I get the same thing in Blue Iris. I must be screwing something up configuration wise in BI. Or does BI just normally act this way with ONVIF triggers in general? BI does not act this way when it controls the triggers. I played with pre-trigger buffers, but I have come to the conclusion the buffers only work with BI motion sensing. I wish it would allow me to choose to start showing me clips say 1.2 seconds into the triggered recordings or something like that. If I had to check for a car that drove by my house in the last 24 hours and had to click on hundreds of AI motion triggered clips and then had to manually go back and forward to find the actual triggered object (car/person) I would lose what little sanity I have left. Now imagine you were trying to find a trigger event that happened sometime during the last week... OMG. This setup of BI simply recording AI triggers from the camera is bordering on useless. No one would want to do that. I would rather go by a Dahua NVR with AI than this. Money is tight for me as is with all the stuff going on in the world today. Hell, I would rather buy a Reolink NVR with AI and Reolink cameras than this... ok, maybe I would not go that far! Haha I must be missing something. Sure, it captures and records nearly 99.999% of motion objects triggers correctly but conversely it lacks nearly 99.999% user friendliness to go along with it. Sure I could make mutltiple cloans to help with finding events from the AI camera, but then I am having to make up things to fix this "fix". On a side note, BI+DS last night got all the cars and people also. I was hoping this setup would take me to another level in motion object detection accuracy. Instead, it takes me to another level of making band aids in BI to overcome a shortcoming of this setup. IE, make a cloan and have it do X and Y, etc. How is this any better than the standard BI? I am running one of the latest BI versions, if not the latest. Maybe being on the bleeding edge of BI technology has finally come back to bite me? Do I need to go back to an older more stable version? If so, what version are you using? Or am I just missing the bigger picture and I am worrying about a non-issue? Look i have done it again... made a long meandering post. I have a massive headache. I need to take two ibuprofens and have a nap. Any ideas, recommendations?
