    User viewing certain camera groups idea

    I have asked Ken to consider this new feature idea. It would allow you to configure Users to have viewing rights to certain camera groups depending what profile you are in. I created a picture to help explain. In this example, when you click on the user’s “Limit to camera groups” you would...

    Wondering what happens to the hour we move back ? I notice the files are twice as big, yet when I view the clip they are still same 30 minute clip.

    BlueIris has come a long way.

    Stumbled on to my BI2 install file :) I couldn't find the BI1 but i am sure its on a disk somewhere. So for kicks I threw it on a VM and setup one, you forget how much has changed over the years ! File date was listed at 10-24-2011

    BI crashes when client connects with UI3

    After latest update I noticed it changed my web server hardware acceleration from "No" to "Intel QSV" This would cause BI to crash immediately when connecting to web server using UI3. By returning setting back to "NO" would fix the issue. According to help file, if you use Direct to...

    How to clean the inside of lens on a SD49225T-HN

    I have been wanting to do this for about a year and today was a perfect day to get it done. The whole operation took about a 1.5 hours. Some of that was taking pictures LOL All that is needed is the CORRECT size of phillips screw driver and it really helps if it has a magnetic tip. The...

    Close call on lightning !

    Was pretty impressed on how fast the camera's white balance bounced back. All my cams are on UPS because this strike killed the power for a few seconds.

    Audio error on

    I finally updated daughter's BI4 over the weekend and all went well except I am getting this sound error when I try to set a logon alert sound. Which btw was already configured in BI4 but I wasn't getting this error. This is a headless system that is RDT into. I also shot Ken a email on it.

    Anyone know what update addressed ?

    I am currently running it and all seems the same. I still have the issue where the first time I dbl click a cam when in remote management it pulls up the wrong cam. After that it is fine, just the first time.

    Anyone else try BI5's Popup toast alerts ?

    Got mine to work, but a few bugs in it yet as far as working 100% reliable. For one thing you can't use the trigger icon to test it (which it does trigger the cam, but no popup) actual motion trigger will work. For me, it works most of the time, but will get in a state where they quit working...

    Blizzard knocks out my PTZ

    Well I had to unplug My Dahua SD49225T-HN tonight as we are having a blizzard. This cam has been through many storms, but it couldn't hold up to this one. I figured it is just frozen and won't pan or tilt anymore but was still producing video stream. I unplugged it just to be safe and not damage...

    Gas leak explosion

    This happened last week and my friends cam caught the action. Turn on the audio. The cam is a Dahua IPC-HDW4231EM-ASE 2.8MM . The fire department was called, but it extinguished itself. This PTZ cam grabbed this picture. Just to the right og the word Feed, you can see where it blew panels...

    Clip management ?

    I had a client that tried to copy one of their BI clips to the desktop. What happened was that the clip was actually moved to the desktop. The picture explains the confusion part. I realize that it is under "Move" but the menu says "copy only to" and gives you the impression you would be...

    Does your BI do this ?

    Not a big deal, but every time I do a BI update it always gives me a critical red error "restarted after a unexpected shutdown" It wasn't unexpected shutdown as BI always restarts after a update. I just don't like seeing a red Icon and forces me to go in and clear the message. It would be...

    WD 4TB Purple drive failure

    Today I logged into my daughter's BI system and noticed yellow exclamations on half of her cams. After further research I figured out one of her 4TB drives failed completely. Fortunately I have 1/2 of her cams continuous record to one 4TB drive and the other half to another 4TB drive. So I...

    Dropping a 90 ft. Pin Oak Tree

    Yesterday they cut down a huge 90 foot Pin Oak tree at my neighbors. It was a 3 day job and took many many truck loads. It shook the ground so hard you can see my cam shake. Neighbors 4 blocks away could feel it !! Glad that thing is gone, it loved to take out my power during storms.

    Anyone use "Anydesk" instead of Teamviewer ?

    I have been playing with "Anydesk" for the last few days and really like it compared to Teamviewer. It's just a cleaner interface and is less bloated than Teamviewer. It's free for personal use and it works very well for my headless BI machine. The Fast Remote Desktop Application - AnyDesk

    If your "inactive cams" show up in your remote "all cam view"

    My brother and I screwed around a couple of hours trying to figure out why his "inactive cams" from another profile were showing up in remote view of "all cams" Mine wasn't doing this and his was. We finally figured out it depends on a few factors, depending on when you checked "hidden" on a...
