    BI 5.5.6.15 Doesn't Trigger On This Motion?

    Object detection was mentioned earlier in this thread, but this is the first time I actually grokked what it's doing, and now it sorta makes sense, so I just turned it off for this camera. I walk up and down that stairway every day, and BI always captures my transits, so I was thinking that it...

    BI 5.5.6.15 Doesn't Trigger On This Motion?

    The front door at my office appears to be triggering reliably now, after decreasing the required contrast. But here's another example, from my guest house front door. Granted, it's a Reolink camera, but still . . . .

    5.5.6 - March 12, 2022 - Major UI3 browser client release, timeline playback is now available!

    Ah, that's too bad. Perhaps if the BI folks are reading this, making precise time data available to UI3 would be a good enhancement.

    5.5.6 - March 12, 2022 - Major UI3 browser client release, timeline playback is now available!

    I think I understand. But UI3 also knows where each alert is in time, because it draws the red lightning bolts on the timeline. Can UI3 request a clip starting at a given time?

    Perfect! That's exactly what I needed. Thanks! Can you expound a bit on what that means?

    5.5.6 - March 12, 2022 - Major UI3 browser client release, timeline playback is now available!

    I just upgraded all of 3 of my installations to 5.5.6.20, and I'm generally very pleased. Timeline view in UI3 has improved the overall function of BI by 10x. :clap: Questions: The Next Clip and Prev Clip buttons take me to the start of the next/prev "clip" where "clip" appears to be defined...

    No Uplink Port on POE Switch? Huh?

    Or be assigned DHCP reservations, which are preferably to static IP addresses in many cases because you can view, assign, and change them from the router. If your manufacturer was thoughtful and kind, and put the MAC addresses on a decal on the camera or even on the product box, you can have all...

    Sign that reads, "No Loitering, and we'll throw away all your crap?"

    Ah, it looks like a custom sign is the way to go. I didn't realize they were so widely available and generally affordable. Will order and update y'all. Regarding the AC outlet and the loiterer's crap, we have enough lawyers here in CA that I want to make sure I'm legally protected before I do...

    Deciding how to get started

    MHO, and YMMV, but in general you want the smarts in your computer, not in your devices. Your devices have been engineered to have tiny little brains, so they can be sold at the lowest possible price. This means performance and upgradeability will always be limited. The brains in a PC can be...

    Sign that reads, "No Loitering, and we'll throw away all your crap?"

    The good news is that I've moved my business into a newer building. The bad news is that there are a few folks living in the parking lot behind the building. I've notified the landlord, but I also want to embark on some deterrence. This guy likes to lean his bicycle against my building and plug...

    Also, BI updated to .20 yesterday afternoon.

    BI 5.5.6.15 Doesn't Trigger On This Motion?

    Sorry for the lack of clarity: Case 1: Settings as screenshotted above: ✅Object, ✅Use Zones, Edge Vector, Min Size: 550, Min Contrast: 40, Min Duration: 1.0. Result: Entry event not detected (1st YouTube video). Case 2: Settings unchanged. Result: Entry event not detected. No YT video, but...

    BI 5.5.6.15 Doesn't Trigger On This Motion?

    I am reading the instructions, and I still don't understand how this motion is not detected. Yes, I made both the changes suggested by you and by sebastian, e.g. un-checking Object and changing from Edge to Simple. I just now lowered the duration to 0.7, but as you can see in the above video...

    BI 5.5.6.15 Doesn't Trigger On This Motion?

    Update: I left the setting unchanged for one day, just to be sure it was a repeatable problem and not just a one-off. And the next day I got the same result; employee comes in, and does not get detected. So I made both of these changes: The following morning, my employee was detected as he...

    BIG Owl on my Trail

    My GHO decided to perch right in front of my LowerGarden camera. The area between the two fences (just under the "Wed" daystamp) is the trail that's visible from my TrailDown camera, which is just off to the right. The owl doesn't do anything particularly interesting (except for pooping at...

    Force 3 x 3 layout with 8 cameras?

    Is there a way to force a 3 x 3 layout of my cameras, even though I have only 8 cameras currently? Based on the way the cameras correspond to their physical locations, rows of 3, 3, and 2 cameras make a lot more sense than 2 rows of 4 cameras.

    BI 5.5.6.15 Doesn't Trigger On This Motion?

    I'm just setting up a new site, so most things are set to defaults, but I'm having a hard time figuring out how BI did NOT trigger on this motion. When I review the New clip in UI3, I get lots of yellow rectangles, but no orange rectangles: Default settings for motion detection and zones...

    Honeycomb-Building Time Lapse

    When I posted my first pass at the Comb Building Time Lapse, someone suggested that I try to “remove the bees” and get video of just the comb. I didn't really consider the suggestion, because I thought it impossible, until 2 days ago, when I thought, what if I could do a rolling average of...

    ~6 weeks in the life of a banana flower

    This is a Wyze Cam v3 with the perpetually-beta-and-possibility-discontinued RTSP firmware, captured every hour via ffmpeg on my always-on Mac mini, and then compiled into a time lapse with ffmpeg, with the sliding transition done afterward in DaVinci Resolve, because I had the initial angle...

    MaxDigitalData drives any good?

    I was searching for some 4 TB drives for video storage, and this brand that I've not heard of, MaxDigitalData, popped up. For a new 4 TB, 7200 RPM, 64 MB cache, 3.5" HDD, they are the least expensive, and carry a 2-yr warranty. But I've never heard to them until today. The Google says variously...

    Camera + Cellular + Solar for occasional updates?

    ^^ Here's a complete Reolink solution for $240, minus a 20% coupon. I was hoping to find/assemble something that's 1) less than that, and 2) not Reolink ;)

    Camera + Cellular + Solar for occasional updates?

    Image quality is not all that important; I just need to be able to see if bees are coming and going or not.

    Camera + Cellular + Solar for occasional updates?

    As an amateur beekeeper I'm regularly called on to remove hanging swarms of feral bees from people's trees, mailboxes, gate posts, etc. My typical method is to scrape 90% of the bees into a standard bee box, hope I get the queen in there, and then leave the box on the ground near the original...
