Blue Iris Reviews

  • Crashes blue iris server

    By Harriska2
    Crashes the server. I just use Blue Iris Lite Client as it doesn't crash the server.
  • You need an IT guy to set this app

    By Smurfass
    Save your money this app is not easy to set if you are not really good with computers. The apps should be easy to use. The support team is rude or will not cooperate.
  • Great companion to the desktop app

    By DemonMucha
    When looking for a good home security app, a big piece of it was the mobile app. Blue iris in the desktop is fantastic and the mobile app follows suit. There are a few small things I wish we could get, but even without those features this app rocks. The saving video to your phone and mobile geofence to change profiles are great features!
  • Great camera software

    By Neshdudhdjfb
    Does everything I'd ever want from a CCTV package. The mobile app is better than any other I've seen, push alerts work great, no problems at all. My only complaint would be to have a Linux or OS X version for the server side. On the server side I run mine as a virtual machine on top of an unraid san server.
  • Hate to say "Perfect" - But pretty close!

    By Mb1818714
    This works seamless for me. Now, I run the Windows version as a service - which seems best for me. Also, when I move from WiFi to LTE I do get a blip - but that can't really be blamed on the app - my network signal is changing - down/then up. I just back up or move forward on a camera and voila! all perfect (whoops-said it again). I'm running 4 POE fixed lens, 2 Wired PTZ's and 2 wireless PTZ's - never see any glitch. Thanks and keep up the good work. Worth every penny.
  • Imperfect

    By InfectedDread
    Nice simple app. Problems transitioning from cellular to wifi and back.
  • Awesome

    By Timbo1984
    Great app. Very user friendly. I tried maybe 15-20 programs before finding Blue Iris and not only is it better than them all, it's cheaper. Highly recommended. Ran into one issue on latest update. The company is very small (to my knowledge) and I got a response that will resolve my issue. Great customer service. The PC desktop client is excellent and easy as the main system as well.
  • Developer needs to fix these bugs..

    By G37x
    1. I always have to restart the app upon entering my wifi perimeter. There is no seamless transition between lte and wifi. The app works fine on both wan and lan though. Contacted dev however they seem to be interested more in what support I have and not fixing the bugs. 2. The geofencing is responding sporadic (see above).
  • Fantastic app

    By PixelMonsters
    This app is amazing, I have installed Milestone, Swann and many others. This actually works, it's fast and easy to use. Keep up the good work...
  • Excellent app

    By Oldbeachbum
    This app works great on my iPhone 6+. Great layout and intuitive operation. HTTPS support let me get much more secure.
