I have several PIR sensors around the garden that alert me through nodered (mqtt rf bridge).

Is there a way to make the blue iris camera trigger the snapshots in the record tab from an mqtt message and/or nodered?

Thanks

Possibly with the BI Homeasistant integration.
I can trigger motion by the service : binary_sensor.blueiris_frontyard_motion

I'll test this but if there is another way please let me know

BI has this built in, just publish on the right topics to trigger the cams

Do you happen to have a link to more detailed info on how to send mqtt commands to blue iris? Easy to send from BI but to send commands to BI I cannot seem to find much info.

Thanks

This works with the inject as payload:

This is exactly how i do it, this is from my Home Assistant config:

Code:
topic: "BlueIris/admin"
        payload: "camera=backyard&trigger"
Another nice feature in BI is the watchdog, if you open the camera settings and go to the watchdog tab. You can let BI publish on "loss of signal" and "restoration of signal". I have Home Assistant sent me a message on Telegram if one of my camera's goes down or back up.

Yes the watchdog is a cool feature. I've enabled that too.
Also the ability to restart the windows pc from the UI, monitor its performance also.

Now with the cheap PIR's I have outside which are triggered with sunlight easily I can configure these to just trigger the BI snapshots and use deepstack to analyze the scenes.

I have somewhat the same setup. 3 outdoor PIR's connected to my DSC alarm system which MQTT to Home Assistant to set off alarms. This is what I consider primary. The secondary is upon motion from a camera, Deepstack & Onguard sends trigger to a specific camera to start recording in full resolution, which makes the camera also send a MQTT to Home Assistant to set off alarms and turn on my Smart TV with a Amazon Firestick so that UI3 pops up.
