@Dan_Leising That’s a cool idea, I’d like to hear how it works out. There are a couple of different stream URL options, but here is one:
Check out this post if that doesn’t work, there are a lot of variations: https://ipcamtalk.com/threads/blue-iris-urls-for-external-streams.24994/
@sitruk It sounds like one of your alert URLs has a typo. With all the URLs and having to change “active” to “inactive” it’s easy to make a mistake, I sure did. Double check your URLs to make sure you have the right camera device name and that it says inactive. If that doesn’t work, lemme know.
@alcopop2006 Do you have the Yale camera added to Blue Iris? Camera model doesn’t affect BI Fusion, all it receives is information from Blue Iris, not directly from any camera.
Your plan should work out fine once your camera is set up within Blue Iris. The Blue Iris support is great, talk to them if you’re having issues with Blue Iris setup.
@Chris_Schoepp I’m not aware of anything that actually delays the mode changes during an exit delay. The old Smart Alarm app and the new SHM Delay Version 2.0 app have an exit delay and work well, but don’t affect the mode changes. They just wait for the mode to change from home to away (for example), then wait your exit delay time period before any of your configured contact or motion sensors become active. But for your purposes in BI Fusion, you need the actual SmartThings mode change to wait as well.
The easiest solution is to use geofencing in SmartThings like @Terk suggested. I assume you have to use a keypad or your phone to manually change modes now? Geofencing makes it all automatic (so you don’t have to remember) and would have a built-in delay.
While there have been problems in the past, it’s been extremely reliable for a long time now (I think we’re at a couple of years now). There are other geofencing solutions for SmartThings other than their native support too. I used webcore’s presence app while SmartThings was fixing theirs, and it was great (I’ve since switched back only to simplify things).
If that is out of the question, I think the only other solution is using webcore. It’s free and extremely powerful, and you should be able to set up a few pistons that monitor all your security sensors, wait your exit delay period, and then change the SmartThings mode.
Hope that helps!
