Blue Iris versus PICO
The PICO Company has
gone out of Business
No smart Phone viewing capability
No brightness or contrast control for each camera
No upgrade path from 4 to 8 to 12 or 16 cameras...you need to purchase a new license
Quality of video will appear to be slightly washed out
Company out of Business - No one can register the software and make it work anymore.
This is a hybrid program - meaning you can view a total of 64 analog and IP cameras with the same $49.95 license
Remote access can be done using a browser such as Internet Explorer with multi view
Smart phone access with browser...apps are in development for iPhone and Android
3 resets allowed with each install without need to contact developer - and subsequent resets from the developer are free.
Superb video quality
Using a Computer with a Capture Card
The genius behind the Blue Iris
program is that it is a hybrid program that, when combined with a $30.00
PICO card and a throw away Windows XP system will create a reliable
surveillance system that can be upgraded to 64 analog/IP cameras.
Without the throw away computer
being available, the Blue Iris/Pico project does not make as much sense.The
price of the 4, 8 and 16 channel DVRs is so appealing, that it makes
more sense to go that way.
