Re: Stream of single cam from BI

Rather than incorporate BI into your SCADA, Why not stream directly from the cameras themselves? This would reduce BI usage quite a bit, and make things simpler.

Re: Low Framerate in Webviewer

Two things I use... 1. In the main UI screen, in the lower right, change the 'Qaulity' to an acceptable value that will produce good video. 2. In the UI Settings, in the section 'Video Player', set 'Max H.264 Kbps' to an acceptable value that will produce good video. Not sure if I need to do both. H...

Re-encoding is NOT happening with D2D. 5.2.8 - May 20, 2020 Direct-to-disc BVR recording will now include metadata for video overlays (bitmaps and text), motion detection rectangles, as well as camera state...

Re: Overlay problem after Upgrade to 5.3.2.3

I believe there was a change in 5.3.2.3 in the way overlays were handled. It corrected the overlay issue I was having, but... well..., looks like it may have created another issue.

I would suggest sending BI Support a small 1 minute BVR and your overlay for them to inspect and recreate.

Re: How to snap photos at a given time and email?

Yes, it is. This can be done per camera by scheduling a Trigger at specific times. To keep the Alerts separate from your main camera's Alerts, define a clone of the camera, and perform the following on the clone... In the camera clone settings/Schedule tab... 1. Click 'Event schedule'. 2. Click 'Ena...

Re: Trouble with zone crossing and motion detection

Have you tried 'Black & White'? This uses grey shades. When I've had problems fine tuning, I've cloned a camera 2 or 3 times (and more). Then, I can try several different combinations of settings to find one that works a lot quicker. It uses more cpu and disk WHILE your running the temporary clones....

Re: Admin User Privileges and subuser restrictions

... However I am curious about Blue Iris's admin user privileges. Can I create sub users that only have read access (wife)? Can I create users that only have read access for certain times of the day and/or for certain camera feeds only? ... Brad Yes, to both. Thru the BI settings User tab. And, by ...
