    New build 40 cameras 4K , what would you do ?

    The only thing I'd be a little concerned about is exactly what memory bandwidth is required. In my testing substreams significantly reduced the need for high memory bandwidth but your proposed configuration is at the extreme end. I usually check: Blue Iris Update Helper so see if there are...

    New build 40 cameras 4K , what would you do ?

    Tried it both ways, post #10 I had 53 cameras running with substreams only on the CPU. My concern is that my 53 cameras were all lower than you are proposing, but if @bp2008 can check my math, I did have 6500 MP/s running in that configuration just on the CPU. In post #11, I had 20 of the high...

    New build 40 cameras 4K , what would you do ?

    Sure, this ought to work. Finally Completed - New EPYC build & Limit Test - (Extremely Unnecessary Builds) I estimate (40 * 8.3MP cameras @ 20FPS) using substreams if I did the math would be about 6500 MP/s effective full-rez recorded and another 600MP/s in substreams. With this configuration...

    Router recommendations

    edit: I think "Guest Network" @wittaj recommended would be what I would try. Play dumb and get lucky option: hook up a second distinct network router Check if your ISP allows you to connect multiple devices to your single internet connection (i.e. thinking a switch in front of two routers to...

    Router recommendations

    I know you are asking for a recommendation for a different router, but I find the ASUS Routers to be a pretty good consumer solution. I definitely would recommend (and do use them) for VPN access via OpenVPN. I know it doesn't specifically tackle the VLAN feature you asked about but it might...

    Midnight Cleansing

    That's how it went for my wife and son, both smoked for years, then switched to vaping. I remember early on they both used to talk about how overwhelming the smell of a smoker walking by was (in a I need to bum a cig off that person because I have a crazy craving, and like TonyR describes my...

    Router recommendations

    In that video, check the 7 minute mark for a really good summary of the SG-1100 ($179) or SG-2100 ($229). Recognize you are buying a lower power device at a premium, but officially supported and with the newest pfSense software. Also I don't believe either provide any wifi connectivity so plan...

    Router recommendations

    Or consider something like the Unifi USG (Security Gateway), less dreamy but still the same ecosystem, good UI and decent following for (usually) unpaid support. Since I never had the USG my Unifi dashboard never had the cool firewall metrics (pfSense doesn't yet integrate with Unifi...

    Router recommendations

    I don't personally have one, but Ubiquity has a solid following here and elsewhere, and all the Unifi equipment I do have (AP, POE Switch) I think their UI is top notch, I really like it. However, I did move the Unifi Controller to a PC on my network because the First-Gen Cloud key was garbage...

    Router recommendations

    Here's my recommendations: No interest in becoming a network guru, but: want reliability, consistent patching and VPN support: Any ASUS router want VPN support and advanced features (VLAN's etc), with option to dig into some advanced networking, but basic UI, but with a support safety net to...

    IPC-T5442T-ZE as an LPR help

    HDW5442TM-AS VBR Issue I wonder if you are having a similar issue with your 5442-Z4E, mine had this VBR issue even with great light. You could try changing the IFrame and some other parameters recommended in that thread.

    Ideal camera for front door doesn't exist? What is the closest match?

    Maybe hope they bring out a Turret model of this guy? DH-IPC-HFW8442-Z4-D47-LI or maybe someone with experience could tell you if you could Frankenstein replace one of the lens on an IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M/M12 with a 6mm, 8mm or 12mm for the longer shot or go with something more typical like 2...

    Ideal camera for front door doesn't exist? What is the closest match?

    Kind of with Southern Yankee on this. I did see at an apartment/condo complex once where you could push the page button for a tenant at the door and it would ring their actual phone so you could two-way talk and get "buzzed in". But that was because the door was always locked and there were...

    Using POE Texas injectors with VLANs

    Yeah sorry about that, got buried in the response. I agree with Valiant I'd be surprised, but I don't have any VLAN easily accessible, and I don't have the exact same POE*Texas injector so couldn't be 100% sure I guess.

    Using POE Texas injectors with VLANs

    Does your friend have the Unifi APs (UAP-AC-LITE, UAP-AC-LR), because those appear to support both 24V passive POE and 802.3af. Personally, I went with the Ubiquity injector for mine (hoping for warranty), for all I know it's a rebranded Alibaba product as well, but as long as your friends...

    New budget friendly thermal camera

    I also suspect that these cameras would be better at rejecting lots of things that trigger BI motion detection today (sudden light changes, waving trees, etc), some of the motion detection/line crossing/AI also try to help in this area, but if your primary concern is animals/people/cars those...

    New budget friendly thermal camera

    I suspect this would be a bigger deal for motion detection, even if there isn't enough light to see the person/animal/car etc. For me, it fits more into "neat" and since they are more expensive I just have too many other options for regular cameras before I get to these. I want to try one at...

    Multiple Remote Locations, Cameras and BlueIris

    I'd try to find another option, you will pretty quickly fill that upload pipe at each location, even assuming you have no other use for the connection. I have 3 cameras at very low FPS and it maxes out my remote site 3Mbps upload speed. Is there no one actually at these remote sites so the...

    The Perfect BI setup needs SSD ?

    Nope. Record video streams directly to HDD folders and avoid moving files (i.e. dont record and then move, just record then delete video files after storage limits reached) is the recommended approach. SSD would be used for Blue Iris internal database and OS as part of an optimization (SSD...

    Infrared Illuminator Microlight IR Vario XXL

    No, but happy to make one. There are 6 allen head bolts securing the front cover to the body that have to be removed to change the lens internal reflector which is molded plastic but very reflective. Visually, the lens look similar but there is a stepped reflector look to the combo one.

    Infrared Illuminator Microlight IR Vario XXL

    Yeah I have one of their 2 inch spots (they sent me both the spot lens and the combo lens to try), hoping to have a build thread go up pretty soon. But here is my first test video. Mind you I couldn't "see" anything so I was trying to "aim" it by line-of-sight around and hoping the panoramic...

    Ordered Sony SNC-VB770 Image Sensor Size 35MM :)

    Not a camera guy, but what causes that sharp focus on the car but very soft/blurry focus on the objects just across the street from the car. Is that a depth of field issue?

    Good router for security?

    If you ever circle back to pfSense, if you don't want it to be a major learning curve/hobby effort, I would recommend buying their name brand hardware that comes pre-installed and you can get software/configuration support built-in for addl $50/year to give you the extra safety net. From a pure...

    In search of outdoor camera for private club with the following requirements. Please help!

    Just buy one that specifies it has no microphone, Wi-Fi and Battery are both terrible ideas, so I wouldn't recommend a camera with either of those.

    Starlink satellite internet

    Yeah that's kind of where I am at. At one location I pay $49 for 20/6 fiber, while this could be a faster alternative or a backup tripling the monthly cost for that sole purpose is meh. At the Colorado house we get 1G/1G fiber for $50/mo so paying +$100/mo for "backup" seems pretty silly. Now...

    Starlink satellite internet

    Right, I read about the current RV limitation, same problem would impact traveling salespeople, business travelers (have you ever used hotel internet?), or especially (someday during retirement) on a parked RV was more like I was thinking long-term.

    Starlink satellite internet

    I’m glad to see progress in this space. Having lived rural, solid internet is just cost prohibitive and not worth it for most providers. After years of living with Comcast, finally got fiber at both homes. I see this being a game changer for people that travel (if the dish is ever small...
