Full Featured Surveillance Camera that Works (and works with all of your cameras!)
on December 5, 2014
I've had various camera software apps over the years. I'd been looking for one that actually works and isn't buggy like many are. This one not only works and has many, many features, but it is relatively easy to configure, but one big plus is that it will aggregate your various cameras on one screen.
I have a mix of cameras. Some are Foscam IP cams, and I have some hardwired cameras that are cabled directly to a DVR. This software is able to display them all on one screen at the same time. What a great feature!
It also has a built-in web server so that you can run the software on one computer, and pull up the camera screen on another computer with your web browser. Another great feature!
I get tired of updating applications where one has to close things down, then you have to go through a multiple step download and install process, then hope the app keeps your settings. Blue Iris automatically prompts you when there is an upgrade available. You click on it, and it does everything on its own. It shuts the software down gracefully, upgrades it and restarts. It just doesn't get much better.
