Android Push Notification Issue

Post by merkaba » Wed Jul 17, 2019 6:48 pm

Hey, I am brand new to Blue Iris 5 and so far so good...except these push notifications. I can't seem to get any consistency from them. When i do get them, they are extremely delayed, and I've never gotten the thumbnails working. Hopefully I'm missing something simple. I've tried the stuff below. Let me know if anyone has any ideas.
  • I have opened ports 2195, 443, and the port i use for the webserver
  • Made a firewall rule for all LAN traffic using webserver port to go to BI based on this post
  • Tried unchecking and checking both "Send Rich 3D notifications" and "10 image GIF
  • Matched up both my LAN and WAN webserver ports to use the same port
This is what my notifications do look like when i happen to get them:

Push notifications should be instant, with no noticeable delay.

Lets backup and start from the beginning...

1. You've added your mobile device to BI's options 'Mobile Devices'?

Per Camera...
2. Properties/Alerts/Actions/Send Push....
Click 'Test'. You should hear the selected sound on your mobile phone. It should be instant - Wifi, or, LTE.

How many cameras do you have Push notification enabled? And, How many work and are instant?

If you are having a delay issue, make sure you turn off battery optimization for the Blue Iris android app.

I have not been able to get thumbnails to work either.
