MQTT command to change profile (solved)

Post by jdabramson » Sun Feb 16, 2020 2:44 pm

Hello all,

I want to issue a MQTT command to change the profile of Blue Iris. However, I cannot get the software to respond to the command profile=2&lock=y with the topic of BlueIris/admin

Is there a special option that needs to be selected in order to change a profile?

I am receiving MQTT topics for BlueIris/status including when I change the profile via the GUI. i.e.

BlueIris/status : msg : Object
object
topic: "BlueIris/status"
payload: "profile=2"
qos: 2
retain: false

Additionally, I am able to issue other working MQTT commands like camera=cam_garage&trigger with the topic of BlueIris/admin. Somehow my problem is limited to changing profiles. Thank you.

I was able to work it out with support. The issue was that the lock command can only be 1 lock or 2 temp. Therefore the correct syntax is

profile=2&lock=1

or one can just change the profile

profile=2

Than you.
