    Is a Core i5 6500 Rig Still Considered a Feasible BI Platform?

    I understand that as relates to the processor evolution itself. But does it tangibly translate to actual Blue Iris performance at the level I'm concerned with? If so, please elaborate.

    Is a Core i5 6500 Rig Still Considered a Feasible BI Platform?

    'Preciate the links and everyone's input. I sorta know the general evolution of the processor families. Blue Iris doesn't seem to fall into leading edge development considerations for any of them until AI becomes a major element -- and what QuickSync can actually do in conserving CPU horsepower...

    Is a Core i5 6500 Rig Still Considered a Feasible BI Platform?

    Yeah, I know. A pretty loaded question. And of course, 'it depends'. LOL I'm currently running a dedicated Optiplex 7020 SFF i7 4790, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 4TB spinner, 20 odd cameras from 1080 to 4K, use Desktop mode almost 24/7, basic residential surveillance/observation application, no...

    Preferred ways to get push notification of alerts from BI?

    Ditto Ditto Ditto. My Verizon alerts were working perfectly until a few weeks ago when I began experiencing significant latency on a fairly consistent basis. Kept hoping it may clear up but finally said screw it and began looking for alternatives for my MMS alerts..., which were only several a...

    Blue Iris Camera Compatibility.

    Device account on port 2020 http://192.168.1.33:2020/onvif/device_service BTW, I've been meaning to post again here for awhile after discovering the firmware will only allow two simultaneous connections. I'm running it in Blue Iris, on a Dahua NVR, VLC, TinyCam, and the app. Had intermittent...

    Blue Iris Camera Compatibility.

    I don't know how relevant this analysis may be, but kickin' the tires of the C-110 with ONVIF Device Manager shows it being equipped with version 20.06 which looks to be circa 2020 or thereabouts. If so, there's some BI motion/trigger/etc integration capability there -- probably with a fair...

    Blue Iris Camera Compatibility.

    Curiosity got the best of me and I ended up buying a C110 to try as a dedicated monitor for the flu temp on my add-on wood burning furnace. Not quite ready for prime time using digital zoom from 6 feet away but will still serve the purpose. I may try more of an overhead view at less distance and...

    Blue Iris Camera Compatibility.

    You may find this interesting and a possible solution to image improvement at closer than typical range -- provided the Tapos use the common M12 lenses and can be popped apart fairly easily without destroying the housing and bezel. I have a Wyze Cam awaiting the mod just to see how practical it...

    Blue Iris Camera Compatibility.

    Thanks for the informative thread on these cams. Been sorta eying one to play with for awhile. Just noticed a 'C110P2' deal on Amazon -- a two pack for $37. That's nuts...

    Pulling my hair out! Trying to backup camera settings

    I've been wrestling with a similar export issue on Android TV devices with a 'you don't have an app that can do this' error when trying to export cameras.xml to local storage. No options. Nothing. Just a brick wall. I gave up trying to use a Firestick with tinyCam quite some time ago and can't...

    Amcrest cameras and Blue Iris

    I have a couple Amcrest XVRs and cameras hanging off my BI network and occasionally cruise the Amcrest crowd, particularly those who are also BI users. I was initially intrigued by the Smart Home stuff simply as an ancillary platform until it became fairly obvious it's pretty much a boondoggle...

    Basic Alerts Question Regarding Duplicate Alerts

    Killing POP in the Gmail configuration did the trick. Was lucky to find an old domain name available I had registered years ago to use as a new Google account. Can leave the other account as a POP account and set this one up as IMAP (or just webmail) and should be good to go. Now if I can just...

    Basic Alerts Question Regarding Duplicate Alerts

    It looks like I was focusing on the wrong end of the transaction and the problem is at the incoming POP configuration somehow. Not quite as easy as just switching the incoming server to IMAP tho. LOL Quite the process involved there just to move local mail folders for later archiving and any new...

    Basic Alerts Question Regarding Duplicate Alerts

    Good call. It sends the SMS as anticipated and still sends the duplicate to the email account, but only to the Thunderbird POP account at this point, I may have it set to delete inbox messages from the server when popped. I've lost track of what what I've tried.

    Basic Alerts Question Regarding Duplicate Alerts

    More testing is pointing to the smtp setup between BI's Gmail default server name selection and what is evidently the actual smtp server that allows authentication of the particular email account on the Gmail end being different and possibly creating a loop via redundancy? There's no mix and...

    Basic Alerts Question Regarding Duplicate Alerts

    It's an analog camera being picked off an Amcrest XVR. Everything is happening with Blue Iris and the external mail server(s). It's dawning on me that the Straight Talk server may be the actual source/relay of the email duplicate. Guess I need to trigger another alert and expand the email...

    Basic Alerts Question Regarding Duplicate Alerts

    Just one alert setup for the SMS alert above. 'Immediate action' is simply enabled with a blank window -- presumably to at least have any alert that occurs be recognized and managed by the database?

    Basic Alerts Question Regarding Duplicate Alerts

    Yes..,, and my thoughts exactly regarding the significance of the email account. That's why I'm puzzled. Not sure what you're referring to for the alert event setup; the trigger to activate the alert, or the 'action' when the event triggers it?

    Basic Alerts Question Regarding Duplicate Alerts

    I just recently began using SMS alerts with a cloned driveway camera. The carrier took some figuring out as it's a Verizon MVNO, but that part is all good now. I receive a SMS alert with 100% image quality from a trigger at the entrance of my driveway before a vehicle gets even halfway to the...

    Onvif device manager and all cams network

    The Blue Iris suggestion puts you in complete control of anything you may want to do with your cameras now that you have the information provided by ODM. If a simpler solution may be more suitable at the outset, there's always tinyCam as a more than adequate entry-level platform that can run...

    Ebay purchase - Windows 10 Pro or 11 Pro operating system?

    Regarding any type of system updates (for an existing version), by all means schedule them and invoke the process manually so you know what's happening when. I schedule mine for every 30 days which is five days before Windows will do it automatically from the date of the last scheduled one if...

    How To Upgrade Amcrest / Lorex to Dahua Firmware And Get All Dahua Features

    How To Upgrade Amcrest / Lorex to Dahua Firmware And Get All Dahua Features

    Post the model information of the cameras. They aren't necessarily Dahua cameras as many would suggest they are. They will probably work with your Amcrest unit regardless of what they are once you are able to access their web interface to set them up appropriately for your system. They may...

    Amcrest cameras and Blue Iris

    I have several WyzeCam v3s (yes, WyzeCams) still not converted to PoE running through BI that are rock solid on a wireless segment of my network which is dedicated strictly to cameras. One is nearly a 100' shot between two buildings and I wouldn't hesitate to drop a PTZ unit into the mix for...

    Install pipe under concrete driveway for less than 6 bucks!

    If I had a quarter for every 8' ground rod I drove under sidewalks to pull RG6 TV cable I would have retired at 30. LOL We also used thinwall with the end mashed down if the soil was loose enough. Just cut the end off and leave it in place to push a drop through. Usually cake. The jetting idea...
