Great plug-in. Have got it working with my 4 cameras (once I realised that I needed to enable the anonymous account in Blue Iris!!!!!!), next when I have time I will set up the motion detectors.

Many thanks
David

Lol, since I am not affiliated with blue iris I don't think it can ever be official

I think the previous question meant submit it to the MiOS store so it can be installed via the Vera dashboard and Install Apps.

In case people haven't realized yet, but this plugin will give you access to use all Blue Iris supported camera's with Vera rather than being limited to just the current limited set of supported cameras.

Scroll down and this will show you all Blue Iris supported camera's. http://blueirissoftware.com/technology/

David you can configure the plugin to use a password with blue iris. Watch my how to video I address where to enter it in there.

Actually I was thinking more from the standpoint of Vera and the Vera App Store. Blue Iris doesn't currently have their own interface to Vera and has never indicated any interest doing that aware of so I doubt they care. :-)

Great plugin undertoe!  I am downloading now to play around with it.  I have 7 cameras on my Blue Iris system, and had been using Blue Iris to send scene triggers upon motion.  Nice to now have another way to do it with motion control!

First time setting up a camera for me and thought I'd try this--looks like a great plugin! I'm having some trouble getting the video feed in vera and not sure what I'm doing wrong. I can't tell if the issue is on the general camera setup side, the vera side or the BlueIris side. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a foscam camera setup in BlueIris and it's working fine on the LAN. Can see and manipulate the camera through BlueIris. The camera is on port 90 and the BlueIris web server is on port 120 (hopefully I did this correctly by putting them on two separate ports).

Note that I'm not able to access the camera remotely. I'm having a lot of trouble getting my system configured to allow this--really frustrating. I was hoping that since the plug in seems to use the LAN ip address, and from what I can tell this is all working fine, this wouldn't be an issue. Is this the source of the problem getting the camera feed into vera?

If anyone has suggestions for resources to get remote access up and running with BlueIris, it would be very appreciated. Not sure if this is the right thread for that... I've been at this for several hours and just not making any progress. I have a comcast modem and am using a Time Capsule as a router and mac as our main computer, but have a PC setup running BlueIris. I thought I had time capsule set up correctly to open the port, but when I check it at canyouseeme.org, it can't see my service. I can't figure out if the problem is on the firewall on my mac or the pc, with my settings in time capsule, or with a combination.

Hi tb001 ensure ypu jave webserver running and have noted ip and port and checked they are open and not being blocked. Then ensure you jave a user and password and that the profile for user is active. Also ensure profile has administrator ticked . Hope this helps.

Thanks LightsOn! Does vera/blueiris plugin need the web server running, or can it access the camera on the LAN?

I know my remote access isn't working correctly. I think I have the web server set up correctly, as well as the user name and password, but pretty sure my port isn't open. If I enter my ipaddress:port into the browser on my phone, it can't connect.

OK, made some significant progress, though I'm not entirely certain what I did! :) I can now see my port on canyouseeme.org. When I enter <ipaddress>:<port> into the browser on my phone (so off my local network), I'm taken to the login page and can see my camera.

Took a reboot of my vera, but now seems to be showing up!! Thank you!

TB you get everything setup? Have you watched my install video, should be nothing more than just copying your lan ip and port and pasting it during the setup. You can PM me if you are still having an issue.
