    Camera setting precedence

    Hi, When configuring my Security system does it matter where I do some or most of the configurations? What I am asking is, does the configuration on the cameras web interface like bit rate, frames per second, etc take precedence over Blue Iris or vice versa?

    Sporadic recording...Settings?

    I'll admit that I am not the best at the settings of these cameras. My main purpose was home security only, not to become a professional at this. That being said, I continually have a problem trying to capture events with a couple of my cameras. Bluntly!, lol, Someone keeps letting there...

    Looking for a Dome POE camera with audio.

    Thanks Fenderman, I have never configured a camera for audio input/output, so I am a newbie at this. Do most of these cameras come with a set of good directions to lead on the straight and narrow? P

    Looking for a Dome POE camera with audio.

    Hi, Can anyone recommend a POE dome camera with good I/O audio through the Ethernet connection. From time to time I have strangers soliciting or loitering on my property and need to displace them. A good POE dome camera with I/O audio would I think would help, especially when away. Thank you

    Port forwarding stops

    Will do. What port would you recommend other than 81? Or does it really matter?

    Port forwarding stops

    I thought I needed to set up both to work. I have done the port forwarding as you can see in the virtual server and trigger pic. When my Blue iris mobile app stops I usually check the UPnP where I usually see that my Blue Iris server is no longer listed. This time I checked my router and seen...

    Port forwarding stops

    Thanks for your quick responses guys. I am going to include some files for you to look at if it can shed some light on the problem. As you can see, when I remoted into my router the virtual server and trigger were still listed?

    Port forwarding stops

    What seems to be happening more often now is that my Blue Iris mobile app cannot locate the server. When I go into the blue Iris application I find that in the remote server section the server is not listed any more. I have started to find that when I remote into my router the port has been...

    Dropping off Remote access on mobile device

    My security system has been dropping off the remote access so I can't use my phone to monitor all my cameras and recently it has been occurring more frequently. When I go into Blue Iris, the verified IP and verified server are always blank and I then need to re-add the IP and server again on...

    Static IP addresses for cameras

    My internet seems to be having a problem over the past month or so and when it comes back up all my camera IPs change except for one GW security camera which always keeps the same IP address. needless to say that this is the only camera that comes right back up when my internet goes down. Can...

    Recording events

    After reading the documentation about the make time. I appears that a "lower make time" of 0 would catch more objects than a higher one, correct? If this is true, this may be one of my problems. I thought a higher number was better.

    Recording events

    objects come into view and my camera starts recording in the middle of the action. It seems the recording starts half way through the event. Is this a matter of changing the size of the pixel range or number of pixel object size? Objects suddenly appear.

    Recording to hard drives

    Thanks for replying Looney2ns, Just for clarity what you are saying is don't bother using secondary storage folder just set the new folder to delete after a designated amount of time. Sounds too Simple. After seeing how storing files was designed in BI, I thought that was the recommended...

    Recording to hard drives

    Thanks for replying Fenderman, I'm still a bit confused on how to separate the storage capacity. I have a 250GB C drive so should I set my new limit size for "NEW" to lets say 200GB with room to spare. My D drive is 1 TB so would you recommend separating the Stored and Alerts folders to...

    CPU running very high...input and suggestions

    Hey Fenderman, Sorry I had to break the conversation abruptly yesterday but needed to be somewhere. Logged off remote and checked the status of the CPU using the mobile app like you said and it is still idling around 25 to 27 percent. Any other suggestions? P

    CPU running very high...input and suggestions

    Right now I only have it set up for remote access. My plan was to add the additional hardware to it for direct control at a later date. But again I'm sure your right, I probably will see an under 20% usage in CPU activity. The lower CPU activity the better I like it. It sounded like a plane...
