Blue Iris Trigger Device
The Blue Iris Trigger Device starts up cameras being managed by Blue Iris camera software. If you have a Virtual Wiring event you wish to use to take a picture or a movie and you are using Blue Iris to control your cameras, this Device is your solution.
The source code for the Blue Iris Trigger Device is in the virtualizer/programming directory, and it's called "vd_blue_iris_trigger.rb".
The Blue Iris Trigger Device has a single input, the "trigger" input. The trigger input looks for "on" events, and when it sees one, it tells Blue Iris to start a camera. Blue Iris' web address and camera name are defined by configuration parameters.
Creating a Blue Iris Trigger Device
Blue Iris Trigger Devices are created by running the BlueIrisTrigger Script. The Script is in the WebDevices directory and takes 6 input parameters (5 plus an ID). The parameters define the location of the Blue Iris web server, login parameters, and which camera to trigger.
The parameters are as follows:
Running the BlueIrisTrigger Script with the parameters listed below will add a Blue Iris Trigger Device named "blue_iris", which starts camera "Frontdoor" on a Blue Iris host at web address "my_server", running on port 80 with a login name of "user" and a password of "pwd".
If your host doesn't have a web address, use its IP address (quoted) instead (e.g. "192.168.0.10").
