I am not entirely sure I would have to look it up they did tell me, I know it was not HikVision that the other company uses. I am pretty sure they are object base as I do not see any PIR sensor on the cameras

Thanks, I am pretty much all HikVision now. These camera are rock solid and the image from them is awesome. Cant wait to here about what your Sub is using...

Am currently trying my Amcrest cameras with a Blue Iris make time of 1 second, break time of 20 seconds and motion detection of 799 with min contrast of 62. To get fewer false alerts. Will the. Adjust from there. So far so good.

I have never had the time to finalize my settings. I was changing them pretty frequently on three of my cameras. My min duration is 1, break time of 30. My min object size is 300 and min contrast is 54. I need to adjust more because I do get motion triggered by clouds.

 

I have three cameras that see the street. I need to fix them so they ignore the top 15 to 20% of the screen so they don't trigger all day.

Just created a Blue Iris schedule and made it Continuous. Then set each of my cameras to use the continuous recording profile with motion detecting. This way I’ll have 24/7 recording but motion alerts within the time view.

This is the way all my cameras but one is set up. It works pretty good. I have not played with it enough yet.

I think that's your best option for sake of sanity. Take a look and see if BI offers the option to pump up the resolution if motion is detected this way you can record 24 hours at a lower resolution but if motion is detected you can record in lets say 1080p. Synology's new surveillance station now offers this and I can't wait to try it.

I do this with one of my cameras now. I record in a lower resolution and then have the camera in the software a second time for motion triggered recording.

 

In another post you mentioned XProtect. I was going to try it out but it doesn't work with Amcrest cameras. I was a bit bummed.

Don't your Amcrest cameras support ONVIF? I did a quick sirch and the ones I saw do, XProtect supports it so it should work with Amcrest. Its free so download it and try it. XProtect Download

Yes they do. I checked their compatibility list and Amcrest wasn't listed. I will have to give it a try.

Noticed in Blue Iris mobile app, I often seek get many notifications for what i consider the same event. For example, iOS BI app will have a badge of 10 “alerts” for a car backing out of driveway.

Is this because the make time on a motion sensor setting is set too low? Currently my make time is set to 1 second.

I do not seem to have that. I noticed your break time was 20 and mine is 30. Maybe try it at 30 and see if it reduces it. If that doesn't do it then there is another setting we need to compare.

Thanks. Just changed my break time to 30 seconds. Doesn’t seem to matter. Perhaps it’s something else.

Under motion sensor:
Min obj size: 550
Min contrast: 40
Min duration: 1.0
Cancel shadows: yes

Jason did you ever get this resolved? I feel for you, I battled this with many different NVR packages till I found XProtect, I don't know what there doing that others are not but they have motion down to a science. Give it a try if you don't get it dialed in. Its free for 8 cams and 7 days of recordings.

Not sure I resolved it though I’ve moved my 9 cameras to continuous recording in Blue Iris. I do have motion detection enabled which flags my timeline viewer where motion was detected. Helped me pinpoint certain points in time. Otherwise it’s now a non-issue. Am a fan of Blue Iris. Great applications. Thanks.

Continuous recording seems to be the thing to do with outside cameras, It will save your sanity. If you get a chance try XProtect I think you will be amazed on how it deals with motion, I know I was and I am a tough person to please. Glad you got things sorted and your happy for the time being.
