New Client / Question

Post by redbull23 » Thu Jun 20, 2019 9:07 pm

Hello,

I took over managing a business and they currently are in need of new Security Camera Software. I found some people recommend Blue Iris. Would this software be a good business solution? We currently have 5 cam's installed and will be adding 7 more. 12 will probably be the max we will need for this location. They currently have ExacQVision installed, which was working fine but was out of date and I would prefer to find something a little better. Thanks for any input, I have never used Blue Iris 5 before.

Hi, there appear to be plenty of business users who do use it, but I'm a home owner with a selection of cameras, so I can't say any more than that. Have you tried the demo version (Ken - IS there a demo version for BI5 ?) ?

BI is a good option for desktop based security, for all sizes. Get an adequate desktop for what you wantm, and, backups, and your all set.

ExacQVision out of date! Seems fine to me. How is it out of date?

Thanks. Our subscription is just expired. Debating on renewing that or going to BI, or some have suggested AXIS. Thanks!
