Re: Backup NEW folder to FTP

Just a thought. Maybe an easier approach, though more expensive. Mirror the drive/SSD's you using for 'New' cabling them to either another desktop, or better yet, in a 'data safe' that would be bolted down somewhere near the BI desktop - maybe even through a wall. That way, no additional copying. Th...

Re: Status Window Sort

I don't think that's possible.

Maybe make a suggestion to support. If you do, also suggest an up/down indicator so we can visually see if the field is acceding or descending.

Re: Record all footage but also show real time feed from each camera on separate screens?

In the BI console, right-click a camera and select 'Open in desktop frame'. You can move it to whatever monitor you want, set the size and position, or maximized to fill the entire monitor. You can still control the playback normally using the BI console.

Re: Automatically change PTZ Position when on home?

Two ways to do this....

- Via the cameras gui. There is a 'home' position in the PTZ settings of the Foscam camera that will be set on camera power/restart.

- Via BI Cameras settings Watchdog tab. Signal restoration.

Re: 5.4.7.0 - 5.4.7.1 Issue

Getting the same thing.

Reverted back to 5.4.6.3. I'm sure BI will get this resolved asap.

Anyone using 'Storage Spaces'?

I have 2 2tb SSD's that I've been using with BI. I've split the cameras putting half on one ssd and the other half on the second ssd. I've been testing Windows Disk Management Stiped volume. It works fine. Except that Dynamic Disks is legacy AND TRIM in not available. Not a huge deal, but it adds a ...

Re: Recording direct to disk overlay questions

Yes, if you use your cameras date/time/name overlays, they will appear in the BI recordings and be available when viewing and exporting. This is because they are on the video feed being sent out by the camera, and being received by BI. In version 5.2.8.1 (May 20 2020), Metadata was added to BI for D...

In the BI Android App, go into Settings, then tap 'Use full date/time format' to turn it on.
The full date & Time will now appear in your alerts.
