    I wonder what cameras she has?

    There's a good chance anyone with a lot of money would have paid professionals to install the system, so it would likely have been done fairly well even if the tech happened to be dated. E.g. not badly compressed wifi crap.

    All clips playing back in sub-stream... why?

    Hmm... Blue Iris console has an option to use the sub stream for clip playback, but that doesn't affect UI3. And I did not add any such setting to UI3. Damn, I didn't put the resolution of the clip into the clip properties panel. I bet BI is mistakenly reporting the clip's native resolution...

    IR Light Control via Web UI

    Way down at the bottom of the UI Settings in the Extra section, there's this option to add IR, Brightness, Contrast buttons.

    Dahua day/night switch utility - DahuaSunriseSunset

    That is wrong. A : is used to separate the user name from the password.

    IR light rope

    Hmm. At my old house I had good IR out to 80-100 feet with just one Univivi 12 LED floodlight (as linked above in post #7) and the integrated LEDs on a ipc-hfw5231e-z5 camera. Plus another wide angle IR cam or two, but those hardly count next to the other lighting. At the new house I'm trying...

    5.5.6 - March 12, 2022 - Major UI3 browser client release, timeline playback is now available!

    Actually for the first month of timeline development in UI3, I assumed I would be getting precise time data and having UI3 do as much of the timeline playback control logic as possible. But then when the BI developer started getting involved, he ignored my plan and built it with the opposite...

    IR light rope

    See, this is the area I'm working with. The edge of the driveway is about 45 feet away from the cameras and I'd like to have strong IR coverage all the way out to there and beyond. But I'd also like to do it as discreetly as possible, and I figure a milky white aluminum light channel...

    IR light rope

    Thats good to know. This 240 LED/m strip (second to last link) looks like one of the best value in terms of $$ per watt. With 96 watts spread over 5 meters, it should be a lot of light. My concern is that with such a wide beam angle (120°) it would light up the wall and soffit and ground...

    IR light rope

    Anyone try an IR LED strip as a more aesthetically-pleasing alternative to traditional boxy illuminators? I found a bunch on amazon, mostly at lower prices than aliexpress. A lot of them even have 940nm options which is intriguing. 940nm doesn't make a visible red glow, but camera...

    5.5.6 - March 12, 2022 - Major UI3 browser client release, timeline playback is now available!

    Yes, but the timeline data which tells UI3 where to draw the alert icons is very limited in its scope and precision, making it poorly suited for this purpose. The experience would be poor if your timeline was zoomed in too far (such that the next or previous alert time was unknown to UI3) or...

    Blue Iris UI3

    The iframe interval there is half of the frame rate for the main streams, and a quarter of the frame rate for the sub streams. On some cameras (Reolink) it is not adjustable so you take what you can get. I suspect those are all reolinks, given what he said earlier. But anyway the combination...

    Blue Iris UI3

    @VirtualCam Can you screenshot your Blue Iris Status window with the Cameras tab selected? Experienced eyes can find a lot of potential problems just looking at that. It sounds like you maybe did not set up the sub streams according to best practices, and maybe something you did is causing BI...

    Before I pester Ken

    Some audio devices have the audio stream turn off when it is inactive, then it fades in when there's a sound but it is slow to do it. Try having a very quiet youtube video going in the background and see if that makes the BI sounds reliable. If so, there are some apps you can get that play an...

    Does sound work normally from all other applications?

    Blue Iris UI3

    Nothing for that is built in to UI3, but I did create an override script years ago that can be coded to do it for specific cameras: Local Overrides Sample: PTZ on Group Streams · bp2008/ui3 Wiki It might still work :)
