Hey Thanks for posting this and the screen shots, is there any way you can post a screen capture of all 16 cameras at once the screen so we can see how it looks? I would consider going to 12 or 14 but am wondering how they all look up at one time.
Thanks in advance

#2 They didn't purposely allow this. The cameras somehow are going to stream and logitech isn't going to spend the R&D to make a proprietary codec and streaming formats. They used open standards. With open standards comes other ways to access them.
By choosing an "open standard," they did in fact purposely allow this.

You can set up a camera with Commander to be associated with an online account and then move it to a different network. The camera will contact the online service on its own as long as it has a DHCP server and an internet connection. This is particularly nice if you have the Web Commander upgrade. I set up one of my cameras and then took it to my Brothers house and it worked fine like this even without the Commander software. If you want to view your video inside of the Commander software you need to be on the same LAN. Im not sure how Blue Iris works in this regard.

Yes You can have cams on another LAN anywhere in the world. You just need to forward the 554 port on the cameras on that respective network. In fact the blue iris developer got the alert camera working on my lan from his home. I just forwarded him the ports and give him the connection info.

Next time I got out to that job site where I put in the 16 Cams I'll take a screen shot.
I'm actually doing a 9 cameras install soon so I'll probably have that one first. I'm just waiting for the outdoor cams to be in stock at amazon.

Thanks so much for posting this!!! I use Blue Iris and couldn't be happier. I have IP cameras from 5 different vendors along with 2 analog cameras all working together. And I have to agree, support for Blue Iris is outsanding! If a camera doesn't work out of the box, they will do everything they can to get it added quickly. I
I just got my 700e tonight and thanks to your post, already have it up and running with Blue Iris.
However, I can only use the LowResolutionVideo path since I don't have 960 x 720 in my resolution dropdown. I searched the Blue Iris forums and I couldn't find anything about adding resolutions.
Could you let me know how you added the 960 x 720 resolution? I do have the latest version of Blue Iris (the version released yesterday.)
