connecting BI 4.0 to Legacy WatchNet NVR

Although you can find a list of tested and supported cameras at, this is a good spot to share or inquire about what cameras have been most successful with Blue Iris for you with other users.

connecting BI 4.0 to Legacy WatchNet NVR

Post by Maurice » Sat May 26, 2018 3:17 am

I am trying to connect a WatchNet NVR to Blue Iris to get some legacy cameras brought into it. When I perform the inspect in BI, it calls up a generic Camera. I spoke to WatchNet and they said that their NVR supports RTSP on 554 and the command line was as follows

The camera supports both TCP and UDP transmission forms.

Attached is a screen shot when I run the inspect

I also get No Signal - RTSP 404 not found on the screen
The NVR is an WatchNet E-240008RTSH

Any help is appreciated
