Blue iris port forwarding

Blue iris port forwarding

Blue iris v5 | install & camera setup tutorial | ep.1

I’ve seen a lot of posts on the internet warning that UPnP is a potentially serious threat, and based on what I’ve read, that appears to be right. As a consequence, I believe I should disable UPnP in the router. I find a single checkbox on the router’s setup page where you can do this.
Upnp, as far as I can tell, is only used during initial setup, so turning it off shouldn’t trigger any issues if it’s already up and running. I have it disabled because I use OpenVPN on my router and therefore don’t need it.

My marina is small, with around 12 boat slips. One day, I logged into my router and discovered port forwarding rules for a Chinese cheapo camera that one of my clients had mounted on his ships. That one cheapo Chinese camera introduced a stealth tunnel through my network (which I would have skipped if I hadn’t seen it).

This is a very stable and secure software that works well with Blue Iris. It accomplishes its primary objective of allowing you to access your live feeds and clips from your mobile device with confidence. The app, on the other hand, is in desperate need of an update. The UI is simply outdated, and the interface isn’t particularly user-friendly. For instance, I’d like to see the PTZ controls moved away from the camera view, and the replay controls extended to allow for preset interval jumping back and forth.
For the basic feature of watching motion warnings, I’ve been testing it remotely for about a week and it’s been rock solid—definitely worth the price! I still have a lot to learn about the Blue Iris NVR and the iPhone app’s different features and settings, but I’m already a believer because the main functionality on both works so well. I’m planning to work with Help to use a Samsung/Hanwha PNV-9080R, and it’ll be well worth the effort. I’m switching to all 4K+ cameras and am confident that the foundation will be able to handle it. Much better than my old devoted NVR, which was riddled with flaws! My NVR has good hardware (8th gen I7 / 32G RAM) and responds quickly—the responsiveness remains good even when using the remote app, suggesting that it is well built. I was under the assumption that the NVR supports H.265 and that the remote, like my recent 4K cameras, does as well. I’m not sure I believe the description that no router configuration is needed… I followed the instructions for setting up port forwarding for remote access to the NVR, but it still works.

It isn’t the most secure choice. It’s the system I use personally, but only because I’m comfortable with BI’s logging and security. For any of my other computers, I will never use port forwarding.

Bear in mind that a VPN gives you access to the entire network, while a port forward only gives you access to the NVR/Camera because most NVRs are linked to the LAN for local access.
Disabling upnp and other cloud features to allow easy access to the cameras, as well as properly protecting the cameras with good password practices, keeping the firmware up to date, and only opening ports needed for remote access, can be more secure than a PPTP vpn.
If you look at hikvision, the only port needed for the mobile app is 8000 by default (this port can easily be modified to prevent people searching for the default port), and if you look at the “privilege escalation loophole,” the hack only needs a few stuff. a default account with access to a camera and port 554, so just allowing access to the appropriate port for the mobile app would not allow the attack, but hacking the PPTP VPN or having a reverse shell on a Windows box would. The other hik hack was due to installers failing to adjust defaults and open any port specified in the manuals. I.e. unethical behavior.

Going back to my first IP based wifi camera, an 802.11b DCS1000W from D-Link, I’ve had quite a few different IP/Security Cameras from various vendors such as D-Link, Foscam, Insteon, and others. The first and second generation cameras were only for geeks (like me) and needed knowledge of networking protocols such as port forwarding and more to get the most out of them.
Netgear asked me to review their newest gadget, the Arlo Q indoor camera, and sent me a review preview. This post’s TL;DR version is “this is the camera to use.”
The Arlo Q provides 1080p HD streaming, audio and video motion sensing/alerts, much like some of the current crop of cameras, but unlike the other rivals for this market, Arlo Q offers FREE event-based 7-day cloud video storage (you can buy more and even set up continuous video recording, but 7 days revolving storage for FREE sets it apart from the others). has more information on the plans. (In my view, the Simple Free Plan is fantastic and should suffice for most people).
