    2022 EmpireTech Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday Sales

    What a wild ride:headbang: Joined this forum July 2020 when getting ready to deploy; had placed an order from Lorex, posted a noob question here, learned about Andy, returned Lorex, ordered from Andy, ordered from Andy, ordered from Andy:cool:. Since then I now have 11 cams (+2 in the way), set...

    2022 EmpireTech Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday Sales

    Then in fairness the re-spin should be with all numbers and if the winning number is in 5th place, they should be moved up to 4th. Once the 4th place spins are complete, a few extra spins to fill the 5th place spaces that might have opened up.

    Thinking of converting, where do I start?

    I think the newest one of those PCs has Windows Vista. The big one is a Dell XPS from about 15 years ago, before I converted to Mac; it was fully decked out back then. Whenever I have time to turn it back on, wanted to see if the hardware could possibly be used for BI. Also curious to see how...

    Thinking of converting, where do I start?

    Quick update: 1st and the most urgent, got a raceway from Home Depot, painted and covered the wires before the wife sees them. Next, since I’m doing a wife approved home improvement project and she won’t be able to decider all the credit card charges on the statement, I went shopping; ordered a...

    Suggestions for Overview Camera

    I won’t tell my wife that she was right but painted is so much better.

    So another last minute project. My living room/dining room has vaulted ceilings and because of bad insulation, always get ice dams and leaks during the winter. Tired of always having to fix the water leak damage, I took things to the extreme; had the entire ceiling removed and applies spray-foam...

    Suggestions for Overview Camera

    A couple years ago, with help from this forum, I installed several perimeter cameras around the house. The cameras on both sides of the front door are IPC-T5442T-ZE, they are zoomed in at least half way for better images of people walking up to the front door. One negative of being zoomed in...

    Train hits police cruiser with suspect handcuffed inside

    Sadly probably not. She will get millions at the expense of honest taxpayers and possibly an officers job, then spend it on drugs and alcohol.

    Kind of cool that I can watch my cameras from my Samsung tv.

    Train hits police cruiser with suspect handcuffed inside

    They conducted a felony stop after the pickup failed to pull over for what sounds like a long distance. Not knowing who was in the truck and if weapons were present, they had to park close for both lighting and to use the squad as a shield if gunfire erupted. Unfortunately the pickup pulled over...

    Thinking of converting, where do I start?

    I couldn’t stand the watermark in the demo version of BI so I purchased the full license; why procrastinate. Also purchased the iPhone app to play with but need to work on the triggers because they are going crazy. Am I correct in assuming the the camera IVS alerts won’t transmit to BI if using...

    Blue Iris Dahua NVR

    Does this method still allow the camera’s IVS alerts to transmit to BI?

    Dahua IVS + BlueIris

    How did you get the NVR into Bridge Mode? I found a video that showed the setting should be under Settings/Network/Switch but it’s not there.

    Thinking of converting, where do I start?

    Netgear is a confusing brand, can’t figure out the difference between PP, EP, 316 or 515. I gave up at 2am and just ordered the GS316EPP, at least I have 30 days to return if I made the wrong choice.
