Gold standard for cam surveillance


I had previously been using Synology Surveillance Station on my NAS and their DS Cam app but when I wanted to add an extra camera at home I realised it would be cheaper to just get Blue Iris and run it from my PC. Even though the iOS app is an extra cost on top it is well worth it for the extra benefits of push notifications on certain triggers and the geo location options. The feed from the cameras is also sooo much smoother and quicker to load than DS Cam and SS on Synology. Keep up the good work!

One minor point is that the geolocation only works with an “admin” level user account - I hadn’t realised that at first and it wasn’t obvious (to me at least) why I couldn’t activate it.

It would be nice if there was better support for VPN connections instead of port forwarding but I can live with it for the moment.

One of the best on market


By far one of the best prices of NVR softwares out there! I have possibly 20 or so copies running and everyone loves it

Only downside is lack of wallboard solutions that run fluently.

Can't view video any more


I have had the app for over a year. The app shows notifications but doesn't feed the video anymore. My camera server is still fine which makes this frustrating
