I will give Tasker another go, you've convinced me, now just to find a use case@seth-feinberg
The latest version of Tasker has improved considerably over earlier versions, hang in there
In respect to Clones, just to finally push home how inconsequential choosing which camera is chosen for the clone is:
You don't even need to have clone selected! The ONLY reason for it's existance is to avoid processing the same camera streams twice theirby saving cpu overhead.
As for experience, a lot of reading, trial and error and some great input from members of this forum.
Enable dynamic masks. The alert will go off twice, create a mask for that object and then stop alerting. If you want you can find that mask under history / dynamic masks, and right click it to create a static mask for that car.One issue i am having is when my car is parked in the driveway the alert goes off over and over. Thoughts?
If you do not select clone camera, then it will be pulling the stream from the camera for each "clone" and thus contribute to CPU overhead (unless your machine is new enough or not enough cameras to make a difference). Notice how my clone cameras do not show a bitrate. Pull up Blue Iris status and the camera tab and yours will show bitrates for all the cameras, including the clones. Or maybe yours doesn't, but it will at some point with an update or a reboot and pull the stream twice...

So when you say "select clone" are you referring to the "Clone Master" toggle box on the General tab? or is this something on the next tab? Seems like the location changed over the versions pertinant to this tread, but I seem to only be able to locate the one on the General tab.@seth-feinberg
Here is a Tasker challenge for you to contemplate. Make a task to change your profile when you leave the house and change it back on your return
You do actually need one of the cameras with the same IP address to be marked 'Clone' to save resources.
"There are four parts of setting up a clone camera for backup" This does not appear to be a standard Clone configuration!
I saw you had this posted on Github as well. I am not using AiTool to start Deepstack. I am running 5 instances in Docker. In AiTool, on the settings tab under AI Servers I configure each instance. The only difference is they all have a different port number. You could start each instance from PowerShell and then configure them under Ai Servers as a workaround until this is fixed in AiTool.I'm having trouble running two instances of deep stack in ai-tool
deep stack gpu 2021.01
ai tool 2.0.627.7696
when I go in the deepstack tab and add another port: 82,83
it seem to be fine, it shows two command line and URL and 'running'
but then after the first event is analyzed I get an error

You don't need two trigger URLs. Remove the first one. The flagalert and memo tags can be comined into one. Also I think your "(cancelled)" in the Cancel URL might be wrong. I just have "&memo=[summary]"I just upgraded to the vorlonCD version released on 10/30/2020. I was using gp's 1.65 version so I had cloned cameras. I've removed the clones and got things working with single cams but I'm seeing alerts in BI for irrelevant hits. I spent yesterday reading every post since the vorlonCD release on 10/30/2020 and believe I have it all setup correctly. I'll post my setting below. Let me know if you need any other settings.
Also, do I need the 2 trigger lines? Can't the flagalert and memo tags be combined in to one trigger line? I don't understand the reason for 2 triggers because I see both in BI for valid triggers. The flagged alert is also before the unflaged alert in BI's alert list.
I am running BI v18.104.22.168.

Thanks. I'll give that a try. The (Cancelled) for the memo was something I saw in another post. I'll change it to [Summary] and see what happens.You don't need two trigger URLs. Remove the first one. The flagalert and memo tags can be comined into one. Also I think your "(cancelled)" in the Cancel URL might be wrong. I just have "&memo=[summary]"
Still getting irrelevant triggers in BI's alert list. I removed the additional trigger line but also still have 2 external triggers in the BI alert list. Do I need to restart aitools?Thanks. I'll give that a try. The (Cancelled) for the memo was something I saw in another post. I'll change it to [Summary] and see what happens.
In the log file I saw this when the cancel url was called.

But I never seen the word cancelled in blueiris, nor do I have any cancelled alerts. So maybe you are correct about the cancel url.
Any chance you could post a .zip file?In case anyone wants the latest compile of the VorlonCD tool. I compiled it from the latest code on the github. I take no credit for any of this. Just happened to figure out how to do it lol.
EDIT: Backup your current AITool folder before overwriting any files.

It's possibly still your trigger and cancel urls. Mine are these:Still getting irrelevant triggers in BI's alert list. I removed the additional trigger line but also still have 2 external triggers in the BI alert list. Do I need to restart aitools?
I don't believe the memo tag will cause this problem but I will change to what you have and see what happens. Thanks.It's possibly still your trigger and cancel urls. Mine are these:
