Re: Is BI a Good Solution for Me?

I'd keep the DDNS in case the external IP changes. To access the individual cameras with IP CamViewer you'd access one port and use individual short camera names as the unique identifier. You could also give the users unique credentials and revoke them when the cat's go home. There is a web browser ...

Re: Marker and export

Yes, On the recording tab change the recording option to continuous and it should act how you want as long as the triggers tab is still set to trigger on motion.

Re: New camera BESDER NZ4RN-22718E

In the camera's properties can you change the output to H.264?

Re: Possible to reorder cameras in the live view window?

If you right click in the black area on that screen a long list of options will display try turning off the one for making the selected camera take up the whole screen "Sorry I don't remember the exact verbiage" then you should be able to long hold a camera and move it where you want.

Re: Browser launching

It's either the start page or home page of the browsers or you setup your BI server's IP in the proxy server field, although I'd think having the proxy set would keep you from accessing any external sites.

Re: Geofence

With BI4 I was unable to use BI's Geofencing options without the webserver port open through my router and the app setup to use my external IP and port when not on the LAN. I wanted to use only a VPN connection without the port open on the router so I used my home automation hub to manage the BI pro...

Re: Super long lag with Dahua 4K turret

I had something like 8 seconds of lag on one of my Dahua cameras a year or so ago, it ended up being fixed by choosing another method of getting the video from the camera I can't remember now which camera it was or the setting that was causing the issue most likely the generic RTSP setting and I lik...

Re: Geofence

Do you have a port open on your router for the BI app to communicate through, and does the app work when your not on your WiFi without having to do anything first like open a VPN tunnel? I used to use GeoFencing in BI for a while however I found it required an open port through my router's firewall ...
