I have been testing reading and learning NCS most of the day. I have been using BI for almost a year and I am looking for something better and updated more often with new features. I have a 21 CAM system all are Amcrest HD under a year old and they all work great. I have 10 of them are a PTZ so it has to run rtsp. Using Blue Iris, I am running 15 fps either close or full resolution. For teh “server” I have a i7-7700 with an SSD for the OS and cam software along with 16GB of RAM on a Windows 10 64bit system. All the Cams are on a separate Vlan all directly connected with Cat5- Gigabit network. I have been adding CAMs one by one and had to stop at #6 because the CPU maxed with the server and client NCS at around 95% (RAM about 800MB) I have 15 more cams to add. I need some recommendations and suggestion to where I can run the best quality for recordings and live view. I am not sure if it matters but we need to record video (Motion Trigger) AND be able to monitor live video, I don’t HAVE to do all of this from one system if it is possible to run one for live view and a service just for recording and viewing recordings I am good with that.
Also all of the PTZ cams have two-way audio, however I noticed the Phone app (Android) does not seem to have a way to speak TO the camera, only listen, is there a setting I am missing?
Any help or suggestions are welcome
