Blue Iris is a great value when you compare other VMS solutions. You pay more with other companies but they have teams who can test updates and only do releases every six months or every year. And even then there are bugs that are not found until users discover them. BI is one developer who wants to get new features to users so they can take advantage of them, with the trade off being users also discover the bugs. I'm happy to pay $60 for BI where I can add as many cameras as my system can handle.you have the option to wait for a stable release. The rest of us like the option to upgrade when WE choose and don’t want to wait 6 months. If you have update ocd that causes you to update every single mini release then that’s your problem. If a therapist can’t help you learn to control your impulses move to another vms that only publishes updates annually.
To put the cost into perspective we have Axis Camera Station NVR/Software at one of our sites at work. You have to pay a license PER CAMERA you want to connect. Our NVR with licensing for 16 cameras cost $3,609.11. I have 20 cameras on BI right now for $60 + the free PC I set it up on. Even if I had to buy a PC they go for $500-ish on eBay. To me Blue Iris is more configurable than Axis.
