    IPC-HFW5231E-Z12 - What is the focus issue?

    I started using the day\night switch to IR earlier in the evening before it gets too dark to focus and it gets the focus pretty good at night but the day time switch back is always blurry. By manually tweaking the focus, for my current use, watching a bucket of corn in the neighbor's yard to...

    How to share a live bi camera feed?

    OK so I was able to share as discussed above. Set up a guest profile and ID\PW w just the cams I wanted them to see then gave them the blueiris.pro/go?... URL and it is working great for them.

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    Thanks, that was one of the the recommended adjustments I did earlier. I've not really paid attention to just how much RAM BI uses normally w my 8-10 cameras but almost 4GB seems like a lot to me....maybe it's normal. Basically every cam now is on substream or low res main stream. That's what...

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    I did. It just showed the 2nd main stream de-warped view as expected, not a sub of the main (round fisheye) view. Selecting Streamid=2 through 5 provides a main stream for the 5 available de-warped mainstream views the camera puts out, each of which have a selection to turn on a substream for...

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    AD (Illustra 825i fisheye) mainstream is simply this: /StreamId=1 It has on-board de-warping up to 5 views so there is also a 2-5 but they are all listed in the camera GUI as individual main streams and each has an option to select to turn on a sub stream in each view. I'm still googling...

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    I walked through all of these mods, (have not upgraded version yet) and basically the only one that made much of any difference was adding the sub stream. I didn't really know how to do that so I just copied the main stream and changed the number from 0 to 1 and that seemed to work. These were...

    Outdoor POE switch box with an electrical outlet inside?

    May not be what I need after all. I don't need to run miles of fiber. I have power and the ISP fiber line just sticking out of the ground right where we need it. So I need a box to hold, power and protect, (weather and surges), all the equipment required to turn those 2 things into functioning...

    Outdoor POE switch box with an electrical outlet inside?

    Both of those boxes look like decent possible options once I identify the equipment needs and total size, thanks! I'm not really sure about how an "SFP (optical) uplink" works much less for lightening protection but def want something to address that.

    Outdoor POE switch box with an electrical outlet inside?

    Well it is a plan for sec cams at the neighborhood entrances in a hilly subdivision. no direct line of site and both about 2 mi apart w me in the middle. Both locations have power and will have internet connectivity right there at the entrance points so pretty much all equipment has to be...

    Outdoor POE switch box with an electrical outlet inside?

    Sooo, if I'm not cheap and can afford a budget to do it right, is there anything like this in a kit \ prefab form to purchase somewhere? I'm looking for solutions to something similar for remote location outdoor sec cams but would also need something much larger than that to hold internet...

    Any way to forward a push notification?

    Thanks! Not sure how I missed that when setting up my push alerts. Once I figured out the email setup it worked great. I like that I can get a snapshot. Push alerts says it will send an image but never does. ... I tried all the different drop choices under "Send Rich push (3D)...

    Any way to forward a push notification?

    Can I set up someone else's phone to receive a motion triggered push notification or otherwise forward a push that comes to my phone for 1 specific camera in my BI group, (without requiring the user to buy the app)? I temporarily have a camera pointes in a neighbor's yard watching for deer...

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    Got it. I went to the BI update page and it is at Ver 5.4.3.5. Why did you specifically suggest 5.3.9.17 instead?

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    Dumb question but can you reformat it to 1024 without literally reformatting\erasing the drive and reloading Windows and all the apps etc?

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    OK Time to upgrade to latest version. I'm going to sort out the drive capacity and deletions first. When moving around the files and changing default paths should I run the windows drive defragmenter? And also the BI db repair\rebuild option?

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    I am currently on Ver 5.2.9.2. Does it have to be newer than that? I have mostly Dahua cameras and there are only a couple to choose from. I typically have just run the Find\Inspect and it puts them either on Generic or or I select one at random until the camera functions work. Always...

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    OK I'm surprised, since it sounds like using sub streams will help reduce CPU a lot, that BI does not automatically config to use the sub streams for some things. I have no clue how to write out for a sub stream so I need to read the link that was provided above then to set up sub streams...

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    So, def seeing some red...I should probably start with this. How do I fix an overallocation error? Once that is corrected I'll move the NEW to D: drive and increase it to 7 of the 8 TB allocation. Reduce the max amount of Stored to 0 but leave the Stored folder is the suggestion then? Will...

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    With regard to "Hardware Accelerated Decode", the per camera settings are all "Default", (which is why I assumed it was on) but the global setting is "NO"...so I assume that means the default by camera is then also , "NO"? And if so, the next question is what do I pick? I was thinking this was...

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    I put the db and the "NEW" folder on the main (SSD C:) drive per the BI note. Am I misunderstanding that? Will it really perform better if the New is on the WD drive? "No point having a New and a Stored folder"...What would l I have then? I thought I read in the help file somewhere it says...

    Can BI make use of AI built into a camera as it's trigger to record and notify? Or is it only of use I'd Paired with an NVR if the same mfg?

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    This a lot of goodnl info. O have 24GB ram so that should be way more than enough. Also do d2d and 8n"think" I use hardware acceleration...is there a setting for that somewhere I guess or on by default? "Use substreams"? I'll read through the links on this. Whenever I set up the cameras I just...

    Proper way do delete files for more space?

    My BI is doing odd things and hitting 79-99% CPU and close to 4GB memory usage. It is also choking on processing video or something like that. Two cameras covering the same area, ( a 5231 2mp and a 4 x 2mp 180 deg Dahua cam.) but when watching live in BI ,the "live" movement doesn't even start...

    IPC-HFW5231E-Z12 - What is the focus issue?

    OK, Thanks, I didn't know you could bake those things dry. Looks like I'm going in...Time for some "experimental surgery" then. I've not opened one of these things up before. Any 'gotchas' in doing so, like finding out a wire is connected to a circuit board and the housing after I yank it...

    IPC-HFW5231E-Z12 - What is the focus issue?

    Thanks, that helped a little and I was able to get it manually dialed in before dark that way, but it appears to still try to auto-focus at some odd time in the middle of the night anyway as it triggers a motion event by the focus changing. Anyway...new issue. I was going to start a new thread...
