This app is a CLIENT for the Blue Iris Windows PC software. In order to make use of this app, you must have Blue Iris version 5 installed and running on a Windows PC or VM. Instructions for connecting this app to the PC software are found in the Remote Access chapter of its Help file.

Very GoodVery good features and well thought out..Wackocrash5150Version: 1.00

Great app but crashes oftenBeen using this for years now, nice to see the recent update too very refreshing however the crashing between live and playback still happens which is still frustrating. Otherwise it’s a solid app!.Scott_Curtis123Version: 2.00.18
