    That's is correct, the PI does not correctly "parse" BI5 motion triggers. I've been using MQTT

        In blue iris, in the camera properties/alert tab, configure a new "on alert' action... then "configure a web request"

        This is the command for the web request to change your VD motion detector to 'motion'

        <HS3 IPort>/JSON?request=controldevicebylabel&ref=<VDmotionDetector Reference ID>&label=Motion

        When motion is detected, it fires an event. At the end of the event I have it set the VD motion detector back to 'no motion'.... and set to not rerun for 5 minutes).

        Hope that helps. let me know if you have any questions.
        Thank you for this! Simple solution that works without delay.

            Tomgru thanks for the workaround. I just setup my first HS camera and it's been a learning experience. Your "VD" sure simplifies things.
