    Push notification image pull timing

    When I have a motion trigger alert, the image that is sent to my iPhone doesn't show the source of the trigger. I'm wondering when BI pulls the image for the alert. I use a 6 second pre-buffer so maybe that's why. Would be handy if you could adjust when the image is pulled for the push...

    Mobile device notification sound/camera

    It would really be helpful to have notifications on my phone trigger a different alert sound for certain cameras. I don't believe the current app allows a way to customize the sound per camera. I'm going to contact Ken and submit this as a feature request.

    Over the past few days I've been testing zone crossing using Edge Vector and it's not performing well at all. During my testing, I'm using default settings for size, contrast and movement.

    I have all of my 5231-ZE cameras set to use the attached Video settings. I'm not worried about storage space, so I'm curious if others have been able to tell a difference in video quality between the two in either Day or Night mode. If yes, then I'm going to up my bitrate and give it a try. Thanks!

    Issue saving snapshots to NAS from my new IPC-T2231T-ZS

    The IPC-T2231T-ZS will not send motion snapshots to my QNAP NAS. All of my IPC-HDW5231R-ZEs do this just fine. I have the storage configured the same way for it as I do the IPC-HDW5231R-ZE, but it doesn’t work. It creates the folder on the NAS in the file share, but doesn’t write the snapshots...
