    Amcrest AD110 - Can I do better than this?

    I received my Amcrest AD110 video doorbell yesterday and was able to get both it and the included module for my existing mechanical chime hooked up. I have not been able to get remote access working yet, but that's alright because I will be using Blue Iris. Likewise, I did not install a microSD...

    Various arguments in favour of and against running DeepStack on a separate host

    Hi there! I haven't really seen any discussion about the pros and cons of running DeepStack locally (same host as BI runs at) vs running it on a different host in the LAN. Currently I'm running DeepStack locally but I'm tempted to set it up on a different host as a Docker image. The reason is...

    Trigger Blue Iris recording when an event happens on Hikvision DS-2CD2347G2-LU

    I've been tearing my hair out trying to use Hikvision events to start Blue Iris ( x64) recording but have had no success. I have the latest V5.5.160 build 210108 firmware working fine so I'm able to trigger the LED to come on from line crossing fine for instance so I know that is...

    Thoughts on my setup?

    Hey everyone, I've put together a system and have been tinkering with it prior to expanding and wanted to get your thoughts (and prayers) and advice. I've picked up a Dell PowerEdge R720 with ESXi 6.7 running a couple VM's (BI & DNS/DHCP). I added 8 x 4TB WD Gold disks to give me a RAID 5...

    Blue Iris UI3 behind IIS Reverse Proxy

    Hi all. Brand new to Blue Iris, coming over from Geovision VMS. We are in love with the software, but we're trying to see about securing it with AD credentials. My thought process was to set up an IIS Reverse Proxy, and then just limit that page to certain AD groups with Windows Authentication...

    Webgui works, Blue Iris doesn't

    I installed a few Dahua IPC-T2231T-ZS cameras. I can view and configure the cameras on Internet Explorer with the proper IP addresses I setup. However, on Blue Iris, only one of the cameras will not start. I get a "No Signal, Error: 8000276 (Socket error: 10054) 0". Deleted are added the...

    Shed Interior Temp to Blue Iris Overlay!

    Just thought I'd share a little accomplishment I achieved with BI and Home Assistant! I recently put a small propane heater in my shed to keep it warm when working out there and to hopefully keep liquids stored out there from freezing. All assuming I don't burn through my 100lb tank too fast...

    Blue Iris Live View Different From Recorded View For 4K Camera

    Hi there - this is most likely a newbie problem, but I can't seem to find the answer in searching Google / Forums. I have had Blue Iris working great since version 4 - using the Dahua 2MP turret cameras that have been highly recommended. With the recent upgrade to BI 5, I also added some 4K...

    Blue Iris - record direct to computer drive or NAS drive - or both

    Ok, I'll preface this with the fact that I do not yet have a NAS drive and have only started researching them. It appears it's a choice between Synology or QNAP and then either a two or four-bay unit. I have only practised with Blue Iris with one camera, getting ready to move into a new house...

    All camera windows change to “No Signal” after several hours/days of uptime.

    Blue iris v5 CPU usages goes to 100% and all camera windows change to “No Signal” after several hours/days of uptime. Restarting machine or force quitting BI from task manager fixes it. This started happening on v4 so I crossed fingers and updated to v5.3.1.5 but am having same problem...

    Missing Alerts on BI

    I'm missing occasional alerts that my Ring Floodlight is picking up. I'm wondering if there is a log or something I can refer to in order to troubleshoot if maybe my system saw it and ignored it or did not see it? I'd like to feel secure that I'm not missing stuff. TIA,

    New 4K PTZ 20X Optical Zoom from Alptop - Surprisingly good camera at $329

    Hey everyone, I hope you are all coping with the current craziness! Back in 2018, I posted a review of the 4K Hikvision which had great performance characteristics but at a quite hefty price tag and extremely large and heavy footprint. Since then, I've been scouring the web for ANY alternatives...

    Keep existing BNC cameras/cabling and install additional IP cameras with everything running off of Blue Iris?

    I've been doing some research into security cameras and it feels like a rabbit hole. Time consuming, but learning about all of this is kind of exciting. I realize that BNC is aging tech. I'm dealing with a large commercial building, so rewiring will be difficult for someone like me. This is not...

    Blue Iris and Samsung/Hanwha NVR Setup

    Hello all. I've used BI for several years but pretty much just the basic functionality with several individual IP cameras and a 4 camera Lorex NVR. I'm attempting to integrate a 4 camera Samsung system into BI but I'm not having any luck. The NVR is a Samsung SNR-73200WN and the cameras are...
