Can anyone who is using Blue Iris and Hubitat tell me if there’s a better way to accomplish what I’m currently doing?
I’m currently using Webcore to integrate Blue Iris and Hubitat. If a door, window, gate, etc. is opened, I use Hubitat to send an HTTP command to Blue Iris to pan and zoom cameras towards the door or window that was opened. Going the other way, if Blue Iris’s AI confirms a person is on the property at night, it sends an HTTP command to HE to turn on all outside security lights and set them to 100% . Things generally work although I sometimes see delays of 4 or 5 seconds when commands are issued from Blue Iris to Hubitat.
I see an app called Blue Iris Fusion mentioned on this forum and I’m wondering if it will provide better integration or is what I’m doing now just as good? I know I could try it out but after my experience with “that other platform,” I’m very hesitant to make unnecessary changes to my Hubitat environment as it’s been ROCK SOLID for many months.
So, does anyone have experience with BI/HE integration via Webcore or rule machine vs. Blue Iris Fusion or the BI Control app (that appears to be deprecated?). Are there advantages to one approach over the other or is it a wash?
TIA for any thoughts.
