    Theft or destruction of BI machine

    If you want to keep a copy of your current continuous recorded files in Realtime, use a network drive, In BI create a clone camera of each camera you want to backup, record that camera to a network drive. I disable all processing on the clone camera. I also use the SD card on select cameras.

    getting ready to install bi on a win 11 machine, what is the best setup for storage?

    My Standard allocation post. 1) Do not use time (limit clip age)to determine when BI video files are moved or deleted, only use space. Using time wastes disk space. 2) If New and stored are on the same disk drive do not used stored, set the stored size to zero, set the new folder to delete...

    Cannot achieve smooth recordings

    Provide a network diagram. Does the camera traffic pass thru your router ? The BI machine and the cameras should connect to the same switch, camera traffic does not pass thru the router. You should not use a raid for the Video files.

    Problem with 5th camera installation

    The video traffic should not run through the router. Plug the bi computer into the Poe switch. You should be using static IP address set in the camera. In a range that is not used by the router.

    Problem with 5th camera installation

    did you terminate, make the cable your self ? Most Cable tester that consumers use a junk, they test conductivity, they do not test for data rates. Does the data flow from the cameras to BI through the router ? , If so this is incorrect, BI video data from the cameras NEVER flows through the...

    Firmware orders question

    I do not know about what version to use. BUT !! An NVR is not a PC, it does not need to be upgraded unless it is fixing a known problem that is affecting your personal systems operations. You are more likely to turn the NVR into a brick than add a new feature. It is also possible that you can...

    Hi there

    If it is not broken do not fix it. Ip cameras and NVRs are not PCs do not upgrade then. Unless there specific feature you need or a specific problem that needs to be fixed. You are more likely to break something or remove a feature you are using.

    How to setup storage for multiple hdd?

    Split the cameras between drives. Assign 1/2 the cameras to each drive. for example if you have 4 cameras at the front of the house put 2 on one drive and 2 on the other drive. So if a drive fails you still have some video on what's going on.
