    Dual NIC setup on your Blue Iris Machine

    I have wired cameras that are on a separate NW as described here. One network for camera streams. One for everything else. I prefer to keep a physical separation, I did however get a wifi camera for Christmas. I am planning to play with the motion for a little while but really wanted this to...

    How to trigger Blue Iris camera via external device - Anyone?

    While your waiting for the Shelly egg - I'd suggest having a look around the Home Assistant stuff. It's a Open HUB that can connect nicely with BI and either take video or camera sensor data and include it in home automation or connect with most cloud and devices that support MQTT or Rest...

    Walk of shame

    One camera is PAL and the others are NTSC - how can I address this

    Thanks a bunch. I've got a list of nagging issues with our Home Automation and Entertainment stuff. I spent too much time on trying move some applications to another server and then switched to this thinking it was a quick win. I appreciate your help. At least that is fixed. Thank You

    One camera is PAL and the others are NTSC - how can I address this

    I've got 5 Dahua 2231 cams. One is somehow set to PAL standards based on the resolution it is sending. The others are all NTSC. I've not flashed or updated any of the cameras. I may have factory reset one or more but I just don't recall. If it matters - They came from Empire Tech so I feel...

    Dahua 2231 - Need advice on camera settings

    Looking at it now - WDR seems to help. I need to get an assistant to help with speeding up the testing process! Not tonight though! Anyone have any thoughts on why the one camera secondary feed is a different resolution? Is there anything you rec checking before I reset it?

    Dahua 2231 - Need advice on camera settings

    Any suggestions? Also - will this be part of the day or night mode settings? I'm quite fond of the day time results so would like to keep the changes to night mode is possible. I can use Home assistant to set the mode to night with using its sum trigger and hoepfully a rest command or I've...

    Dahua 2231 - Need advice on camera settings

    Wow- Appreciate you patience. If this was a snake..... Anyway, I can say that I don't recall using those settings but that when I went to get this screen shot, I saw the camera was still in "Day" mode. I manually switched it to night mode. Then a cat walked through to show that that the cat...

    Dahua 2231 - Need advice on camera settings

    I don’t see anything in the camera for exposure or picture. I have pixels and refresh rate. The only lense like options are focus and zoom. Camera is not zoomed at all

    Dahua 2231 - Need advice on camera settings

    Understand the up comment. I do it more as a matter of having good habits than safety. The camera settings are in a previous post

    Dahua 2231 - Need advice on camera settings

    That camera said it was in day mode when I just looked at it. But it was set to switch day/night. I thought it would do day/night automatically that way and will check later. I can geek it up and use sunset / sunrise with mqtt or REST but really don't want that complexity. The IR light is...
