    Order of cams?

    I can edit the BI screen to re-arrange the Cams. However, I have a Group called Group A let's say, and I view those Cams on an iPad via UI3. The cams on the iPad don't follow the order of cams on BI desktop computer. How can I re-arrange the cameras showing up on the iPad?

    Limiting number of presets

    BI has up to 40 presets. I only need sat 5 for a camera, with autocycle. So I never want to go to preset 6, 7, etc. but no matter what I do I can’t get BI to stop calling all 40 presets. Help please?

    Why use a substream?

    Why would you use a substream? I'm just a homeowner and I like seeing my cams + recording when there's motion. Do I really need my IP cameras sending out a sub-stream?

    External access to "webstream"

    Without using Webcam settings, since I have a permanent host name ("keep alive"), e.g., that maps to my Comcast IP address, how can I access the UI3 and/or a specific camera? Of course with a username + password as well. Not sure what the URL would be in that case. Thanks!!!

    Record all but alert some

    Hi - is there a way in BI to record basically any motion but only send an alert when a MAJOR motion happens? I want to record when a car drives by my front door say, but I also want an alert if someone walks up to the front door. I guess one way would be to set up "two" feeds with different...

    UPNP keeps disappearing

    Hi - I've run the BI wizard a few times and I get it to work to access video while I'm not home. But it seems the router or windows or something keeps resetting my UPNP?

    Cam connects to app but drops BI connection

    Hello, I got a Wansview W4. I can connect via RTSP in Blue Iris and often if works fine. Sometimes thought (at least once a day), BI can't see the camera, but I can confirm it's still reachable from the Wansview app. By rebooting the camera, BI picks it up again. Suggestions to fix this please...
