    POE splitter- Recommend some debug tools/methods for me

    Thanks. I have seen them listed as POE splitter/combiners. They look more to me like POE aggregators. The parts simply take pins 1,2,3 and 6 on two POE RJ-45s and bond them on the 8 individual wires- then demux them. Nothing complicated. I buzzed them out and it seems that what is...

    POE splitter- Recommend some debug tools/methods for me

    I have a cat 5e wire that runs to a generator about 50 feet from my house. It was a spare from when they installed the generator. I put a keystone on it and pulled it into my POE switch and got a Dahua camera operating on it just fine. Previously, I had a POE powered ethernet switch out there...

    Export multi day

    Hey, I have been reading the wiki and the instructions: but I seem to be stuck on something which I though was simple. I live on a fairly sleepy road and apparently a car got broken into within the past two days. I am trying to take one of my cameras and just drop all of the alerts from those...

    What's your Blue Iris Setup like? (List Specifications)

    I installed Windows natively on that machine with a raid. I am probably going to leave it as is. I don't even recall the issues I had. I think Windows wasn't booting when I turned on the pass through. I have successfully passed through loads of hardware in the past, but this alluded me to...

    What's your Blue Iris Setup like? (List Specifications)

    It was an E3 (I think 1245 with the embedded Intel GPU) and it was ESXi 6.7.

    What's your Blue Iris Setup like? (List Specifications)

    I used to run it in a VM running on a XEON. I tried loads of times to pass through the Intel graphics through (this Xeon version has it) and it doesn't work. I ended up essentially building a similar machine and running Windows natively. I like the Xeons as they have ECC memory and I use a...

    Any limits on the autocheck.com api?

    Interesting-- I am looking at using the open ALPR on GITHUB that has not been maintained-- this might be a good double check to see if the plate is valid...

    Review-Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam

    I tried shutting off the camera name overlays on these camera-- and applying and saving that change doesn't seem to work. Can anyone else confirm this? Maybe I just need to update the firmware. It is working otherwise so i don't want to mess with it if I don't have to.

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    I think the point is they are free to regulate the speech on their platform, but then they are liable for the speech on there.

    Geofence on multiple locations

    Has anyone set up Blue Iris to have more than one geofence location? With IP Cameras, the camera could be very far apart, and possibly I'd like to have my wife and my offices in there to set up profiling...

    Recommendation for camera-- 100 feet away or so

    Looking for a camera recommendation to mount on my generator in order to see my kids playground... about 100 feet away. Something that can focus variable at that distance you be great. PTZ would be a plus-- but not a requirement. I have one of these...

    Blue Iris in VMWare ESXi 6.7 with passthrough of Intel integrated graphics

    So I tried the C226 motherboard and tried to do the pass through. For some reason, ESXi wouldn't boot windows with the bypass--- ended up just putting Windows 10 Pro on the machine. Am running it unregistered-- it is headless so I am not even sure if it matters.

    Blue Iris in VMWare ESXi 6.7 with passthrough of Intel integrated graphics

    Was going to do a new build but I figured I’d try the C226 motherboard to see if it fixes these issues. I’ll follow up.

    Review-Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam

    That original night video-- was the IR light genereated by this camera or the one next to it. I mounted mine and the angles are large on camera 2. I think I am getting IR reflection from the case at night. Maybe ill take the cover off some night to see if it gets better without it. Thinking...

    Review-Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam

    Just a quick note here: i received one of these last week and installed it yesterday after a week or so of testing on my desk. After installing it-- it stopped working. I did put the POE cable in a tight pinch when screwing it in-- though maybe I broke it. Couldn't ping it-- POE lights were...

    Why dedicated PC?

    I am probably a bit paranoid..... I also like being able to log into the BIOS of a machine remotely so if I need to do a complete OS reload from a remote site I can. I don't have a gaming system. I did a demo of the Oculus headsets at a function recently and thought about getting their gaming...

    Why dedicated PC?

    Yes. I stand corrected. I meant Raid 1 minimum. I set up ZFS on my NAS so long ago and haven't had any issues (knock on wood). I think this is technically a RAID 60 here... [user@nas ~]$ zpool status pool: tank state: ONLINE scan: scrub repaired 0B in 2h50m with 0 errors on Sun Sep...

    Why dedicated PC?

    I run BI 4 on a ESXi Win 8.1 VM with 2 dedicated dual threaded cores. Homeseer runs there as well. Uses about 18% of the CPU with maybe 7 cameras-- maybe hits 40% at times with my settings. I am adding some more cameras and maybe moving in BI5-- so we will see how it does. BI and windows...

    Blue Iris in VMWare ESXi 6.7 with passthrough of Intel integrated graphics

    Looks like it is actually a RAID 6 (z2) striped across 3 volumes (RAID 60). Set it up a while ago (my old one was a 5). I run crashplan on it as well. A NAS is not a backup. ------------------------------------- [wpiman@nas ~]$ zpool status pool: tank state: ONLINE scan: scrub...

    Blue Iris in VMWare ESXi 6.7 with passthrough of Intel integrated graphics

    Ok, so I updated to the E1245-V3 and I wasn't seeing the intel graphics show up on the pass through. After so futzing around for a bit, I think I figured out why. My motherboard has a C224 chipset which does not support the integrated graphics. So the processor upgrade seems to have been all...

    Blue Iris in VMWare ESXi 6.7 with passthrough of Intel integrated graphics

    I think the bare metal versus VmWare ESX question comes down to how many cameras you want to support. I am running a pretty light load (one two megapixels and two doorbirds). If you are running 40 2 MP cameras, then the balance tips. I have no stability issues with Windows on ESXi. I run...

    Blue Iris in VMWare ESXi 6.7 with passthrough of Intel integrated graphics

    That does look indeed better. Interesting that that is listed as 6 threads? Do some of the Xeon's not support hyperthreading? I actually think what I am going to do is to order an older V3 1245 with the embedded graphics that will be pin compatible with my motherboard. For a couple of...
