    Great place to buy. I had a little issue (probably my fault), posted on the forum and within minutes Mike was there to save the day. I’m use to support emails or post taking days of back and forth but not this time. Mike quickly resolved the problem and even offered further assistance to help set me up. A+

    Great software! Highly configurable and in my (albeit short) experience, very reliable. Can be a bit of a CPU hog. Using H.264 exclusively and Intel processors with Quick Sync technology helps a lot. Be sure to follow the guides here on ipcamtalk. Direct-to-disc recording and no overlays will minimize processor usage. UI3 web interface is quite good and easy to use on a mobile device. Blue Iris motion sensing is easy to use and more accurate than my camera’s built-in alerts. It’s worked with every camera I’ve tried, including those with microphones. For my small handful of cameras at home, Blue Iris beat all the competitors in both value and performance. Finally, there is a huge amount of information available online about configuring Blue Iris, and the built-in help is excellent to boot.

    Lots of support online to get my camera (cheap 1080p chinese) working. Looking forward to adding more cameras in the future. More features than you will ever need!

    Just bought the full version last week. I’m adding new cameras & decided to try a setup thru Blue Iris rather than upgrade my NVR for additional ports. I was up & running so fast. I really like the find feature in add a new camera. It finds & lists all network cams. You pick the cams IP in the list, click OK & it populates all the info into the app. So cool! I also had a question answered via forum within an hour.

    Don’t waste your time searching or testing other software. My copy of Blue IIris V5 was bought from IPCAMTALK, sophisticated yet very easy to install and use. I have also received a lot of help from many forum members. Highly recommended…

    Just got a second copy for personal use. I want to play with version 5 a while before rolling it out to my customers. Looking forwards to the new features!
    This forum makes it so much easier to solve problems.

    I’ve been waiting a long time for this software and I’m not the least bit dissapointed. I finally built myself an UnRaid server with Blue Iris running in a Windows 10 VM. All I can say is Thank you to all the developers of Blue Iris. It’s simply the best software out there for surveillance cameras. Hands down!

    Blue Iris is an amazing utility. I use it every day. The more I learn about all of its robust features, the more impressed I am. It’s truly a must-have software if you are running ip cams. Just buy it! You won’t be disappointed.

    Blue Iris is a breeze to set up and use, especially with all the knowledge shared on the ipcamtalk forums. I did a bit of research before buying this software and in my opinion the cost for Blue Iris is kind of ridiculously low. Great stuff

    I’ve used store bought NVRs and they work but if you want things setup just like you want it Blue Iris is the way to go. It can seem somewhat complex or even overwhelming at first because it is so flexible but it is worth it.

    I bought this for a business and plan on buying for my home as soon as I’m finished with the business.

    Don’t try it unless you want to buy it. I played with it for the 2 week trial and realized there is nothing better for the price. BI pretty much does “anything”. Watch Dasstrum’s “Blue Iris Video Tutorials” which are excellent. IPCT is a great resource!

    First time user and it was easier than I thought to get set-up and going. I know JACK about this stuff but “ipcamtalk” is there for any and all questions. I bought here because of the assistance I’ve received. I know I’ll dig deeper with all the available features and value “ipcamtalk” for being there when questions pop up.

    Finally bit the bullet and purchased BI.
    Installed without issues and picked up my cameras quickly. Had all my exports from using the Eval Version. But did not need them.
    Still a bit of a learning curve moving away from my Hikvision NVR but I’ll get it figured out at some point.

    first time using BI, wasn’t as hard as I thought it might be. I use two amcrest hd cams and no issues. Configuration takes a little time but not bad.

    Great service support with Blue Iris at a fair price and is an excellent source for knowledge and ideas for a DIY security cam system.

    Blue Iris is hands down the BEST software for aggregating various ipcams and packed full of value for a minimal cost. is a fantastic resource for security cameras, and a no brainer to buy from.

    Works great. Easy to use on my Hikvision OEM cameras and Goswift security cameras. Both are onvif compatible.

    Great place to buy. What more can you ask for. It is on sale now, you get great support for the transaction and if you have questions on anything technical, you have a forum to ask questions on and people willing to help.
