The software components of my system are listed below. I have a total of 4 cameras (2 POE & 2 wifi) feeding into Blue Iris. Right now, the weak link in my setup is the AI/object detection. The process to feed the AI is clunky and the dectection accuracy needs improvement.
One of the few commercial software solutions I use in my automation stack. Pros: Extremely feature rich & adaptible. Cons: Windows based only, UI suffers heavily from feature creep/bloat; non-intuitive. Excellent software otherwise :)
