    (replace usr with a HS3 user and pwd with the user’s password)

    To get the event ID, use Jon00’s Event Viewer utility.
    I was putting off moving to BI5 because of the plugin issue. I finally moved to BI5 and the SON code above worked fine for me.

    I use motion to trigger a lot of events so I had to create a new event that is called when there is motion. You can use Jon00's Event Viewer, or in HS4, the event ref # is in the URL: http://xxx.xx.xx.x/events.html?ref=75&subpage=event.html

    I then have this new event call my various other events that trigger on motion. Some have conditionals so why I need multiple events. For example if I'm watching TV and my chromecast virtual device is "on", when there is motion on certain cameras chromecast the camera to the TV that is on. I use the chromecast virtual device so I can turn that off if I do not want interruptions. My wife loves the chromecast feature and it will track motion as someone moves from the gate to the driveway to the front door.

The issue I'm having is between the camera and BI5. I really like using the PIR of the camera to detect motion since it gives me less false alarms from animals, lightning, etc. on the front porch.
    It's working for you though on BI5 and blue iris motion detection?

    I tried everything this forum suggests but still can't get the events to trigger. I know homeseer is seeing the alert request from blue iris, and when I put the request into a browser it shows response. But for some reason nothing triggers.

    I use the same method.

    BI to HS to run an event:
    Code:
    192.168.2.184:80/JSON?user=xxxxxxxxx&pass=xxxxxx&request=runevent&id=65
    HS to BI to turn off and on Camera Motion Detection:
    Code:
    &hs.urlaction("http://192.168.2.184:81/admin?camera=Drvway&motion=0&user=xxxxxxxx&pw=xxxxxxxxx", "GET", "", "")
    &hs.urlaction("http://192.168.2.184:81/admin?camera=Drvway&motion=1&user=xxxxxxxx&pw=xxxxxxxxx", "GET", "", "")
    Two way control and interaction no plugin required.

    I have never watched the status device to see if it shows "Motion" while there is motion. It always switches back to its current status, for example "[20fps] Clips: 17". However, my events trigger on motion, so I presume the status device must momentarily change to "Motion" while there is motion. The only events I have are triggered by motion, so I can't comment on whether recording or other things trigger properly.

    I looked through a number of recent event triggers and noted that there is a delay of anywhere from 0 to 5 seconds between the time on the video clip and the time the event triggered. Not sure why, but probably due to the sample rate of comm between BI and HS3. It does explain why sometimes my lights are slow to come on when there is motion.

    Burrington Yes, it is same.. And you get your camera status device in HS updated instantly with no issues when triggered, recording etc.?

    I checked all motion zones. See attached picture..

    Do you have it setup the same way? It looks like UI in BI5 is little bit different fro, BI4. Anything else that I should check? If it works for you, it should work for me too.. :-) Maybe I am just missing something simple.

    I am using BI5 to detect and declare the motion trigger, not the cameras.

    I have a similar alert in my camera setup, but I definitely did not add it. It was done somehow automatically when I was setting the camera up. My HikVision cameras were listed in the camera setup pick-list and I installed them that way, so maybe that's where this alert was installed. In any case, here is the text from mine:

    192.168.1.115:999/JSON?request=pluginfunction&function=Alert&plugin=Blue-Iris&P1=&CAM&P2=&TYPE

    115:999 are my HS3 IP and Port numbers. Can't see all of your text so don't know if yours is the same or not. Everything else in that window looks the same as yours.

    mik3 I would but don't understand the problem well enough to make my case that it is indeed BI problem.

    Agreed.

    open a case with bi?

    I am a little bit confused how you have it set up..

    1. Are you using BI motion detection to trigger camera and then having you camera send the URL to HS?

    2 or are you using camera's built in motion detection ?


    I will check if there is way for me to set it up similar way you have it if we can't get it working within BI. I have PTZ Sunba camera.
    Number 2. I have the axis motion app installed, set my areas of detection and the trigger to send a http request over json to the device I want to turn on.

    That’s exactly how I had it setup for the last 6 months. It just quit working....

    So I copied the exact URL and programmed my axis camera to send the http URL to HS. Which works.

    This is why I think it’s a bi issue.

    Have you checked their forums?
