How to Take Total Control of your Iris Cameras with the API

Update - took better part of the day to unravel 4 cameras, had to turn off the electric and un plug LAN and bring them into the router one at a time, had to reset one, that was twisted up with a different IP-Mac address combo.

That also incuded power down reset on the router,

 

I've noticed some come up with a bigger picture, any obvious reason?

 

Now off to Blue Iris to figure out port forwarding to get these to read on their APP.

The the image size is controlled by the resolution.  Use /adm/get_group.cgi?group=H264 to see what yours are set at.

Port forwarding is never a good idea unless you are using something like sTunnel or VPN.

Using a VPN is a much better option.

I followed the instructions for both best resolution possible, how do I know what this means:

[H264]
mode=1
resolution=4
quality_type=1
quality_level=3
bit_rate=4000
frame_rate=5
gov_length=10
sp_uri=
mode2=1
resolution2=4
quality_type2=1
quality_level2=3
bit_rate2=1000
frame_rate2=30
gov_length2=10
sp_uri2=
mode3=0
resolution3=3
quality_type3=1
quality_level3=3
bit_rate3=1000
frame_rate3=30
gov_length3=10
sp_uri3=
profile=66
cropping=0
profile2=66
cropping2=0
profile3=66
cropping3=0

 

this is #66 and its good

[H264]
mode=1
resolution=4
quality_type=1
quality_level=3
bit_rate=4000
frame_rate=5
gov_length=10
sp_uri=
mode2=1
resolution2=4
quality_type2=1
quality_level2=3
bit_rate2=1000
frame_rate2=30
gov_length2=10
sp_uri2=
mode3=0
resolution3=3
quality_type3=1
quality_level3=3
bit_rate3=1000
frame_rate3=30
gov_length3=10
sp_uri3=
profile=66
cropping=0
profile2=66
cropping2=0
profile3=66
cropping3=0

 

this is #86 and it is not:

[H264]
mode=1
resolution=4
quality_type=1
quality_level=3
bit_rate=2000
frame_rate=5
gov_length=30
sp_uri=
profile=77
mode2=1
resolution2=4
quality_type2=1
quality_level2=3
bit_rate2=1000
frame_rate2=30
gov_length2=30
sp_uri2=
profile2=77
mode3=0
resolution3=3
quality_type3=1
quality_level3=3
bit_rate3=1000
frame_rate3=30
gov_length3=30
sp_uri3=
profile3=77
bandwidth=0
cropping=0

You might want to read through this:  https://github.com/edent/Sercomm-API/blob/master/README.md

I would suggest you change your bit and frame rates.

Here's what I'm using:

[H264]
mode=1
resolution=4
quality_type=0
quality_level=3
bit_rate=7
frame_rate=15
gov_length=10
sp_uri=
profile=66
mode2=1
resolution2=4
quality_type2=0
quality_level2=3
bit_rate2=7
frame_rate2=15
gov_length2=10
sp_uri2=
profile2=66
mode3=0
resolution3=3
quality_type3=1
quality_level3=3
bit_rate3=1000
frame_rate3=30
gov_length3=30
sp_uri3=
profile3=77
bandwidth=0
cropping=0
bandwidth2=0
cropping2=0
bandwidth3=0
cropping3=0

The settings I posted are a matter of personal preference which I found to provide a balance between image quality and wifi bandwidth usage.  You can decide what works best for your needs.  Here's the configuration file specs:
