  1. No Mac? Review by Dennis K.
    Price
    Quality

    I've always been a PC guy, but Windows 8 made me switch. 2 weeks through and I'm loving my Mac. However, Blue Iris is something that I found missing, so I had to use Mobiskoрe. To be clear, I'm not promoting Mobiskoрe or anything (even Foscam recommends it as supported software on Spanish website). Just pointing out a very solid alternative to Blue Iris for switchers to Mac like myself. (Posted on 12/25/13)

  2. Totally Comprehensive Can't beat the Price Review by CMS

    Quality

    I could say a hundred good things but my summary covers it all. I will be looking at the Foscam cameras next. (Posted on 10/21/13)

  3. Excellent & stable software Review by Eric
    Price
    Quality

    As an experienced tech I'm willing to tackle complex DIY projects that even require breaking out a soldering iron. I've cobbled together several old USB cams and a new Foscam FI9821W and will buy more later. The software has been stable despite the crap I've thrown at it, long USB runs that require amps in line, things that send USB software crazy, things like that. I tried several apps, and none were as stable as this. It's feature rich and updates come often and install without a hitch. Very well maintained, actively updated and solid product, excellent value for the price. Very happy with my selection of both Blue Iris and the camera. (Posted on 6/7/13)

  4. Lots of features Review by DG

    I agree with the other users and have been using the software for several months now it do works great. Very satisfied. (Posted on 3/2/13)

  5. Blue Iris Review by Clark   Verified review with purchase
    Price
    Quality

    I've been using Blue Iris for awhile now and am very happy. They got the video for the FI9821W camera working in a day. I recommend Blue Iris for Foscam cameras. It works with USB WebCams as well. (Posted on 1/6/13)

  6. Excellent software! Review by Randall   Verified review with purchase
    Price
    Quality

    This software is very nice. The 'console' looks little outdated but this stuff does just about anything you'll ever need to do. It also constantly gets updates, so I know the programmer is always keeping up with it. And the price is great! (Posted on 10/27/12)

  7. Best NVR Software available Review by Matt C
    Quality
    Price

    I am just a customer, I don't work for Blue iris nor do I sell their software. I ran the trial of this software shortly after I purchased my 8918 and instantly fell in love.
    I tried using the 8918 built in software but always felt it was lacking and glitchy. I purchased the software directly from Blue Iris because I didn't realize I could have bundled it with my cam. The features built into Blue Iris make the 8918 easily worth $500+. Just a few quality features I am using and absolutely love:
    - Scheduled Pan/Tilt (so the camera can constantly scan a room)
    - Automatic camera reset (You will notice with the 8918 if using wirelessly that it's interface will reset after 12-48 hours which will stop your 24 hr recording. Blue Iris automatically reconnects and resumes recording)
    - Email/SMS/Instant Message Alerts
    - Records frames prior to motion event trigger
    - Archiving is user defined (time limits or size)
    - Web server (keeps your wireless cam connection from getting beaten up with multiple streams)
    - Different Schedules for different times of day/days of week (I record continuously while I am home but alert and record while I am gone)
    - Fast Tech Support response (I got a reply within minutes and bug fixed within hours)

    Go to their website and try the demo of this software out. You'll fall in love just like myself and so many others. www.blueirissoftware.com (Posted on 8/29/11)

  8. I highly recommend! Review by APSchreiber
    Price
    Quality

    I've been using Blue Iris for about a year now and love it. It allows management of multiple cameras from different manufacturers, even USB web cams. It may take some knowledge to set up but it is easy to use. I check all my cameras all the time from my Android phone. It's great! (Posted on 8/26/11)

  9. Best way to get the most from your Foscam Review by Flickerking
    Price
    Quality

    I have been using this software for over 3yrs. It is robust and has many settings for recording including pre-motion frames. This software combined with inexpensive wireless IP Cameras is a very good security system. In my case, there are 2 burgulars who each got 4yrs in the slammer due to being caught on video by Blue Iris. Highly recommended. (Posted on 7/24/11)

  10. Top Notch Software Review by zoutspout
    Price
    Quality

    I did a thorough search for IP camera software and nothing even comes close to this product for the price. The sheer number of features and the ability to customize/program each camera with a variety of settings makes this an excellent package. It is actively maintained - just after I purchased it a new update became available. You really can't go wrong with this software: remote access, built-in web server, recording, archive, triggers, alerts, etc. Amazing value! (Posted on 6/24/11)
