So, I’m currently setting up my new home CCTV system.
Blue Iris running locally on an i7-9700 with 1050Ti. Two IP cameras through my Cisco PoE switches. One cam is 8MP and the other is 4MP.
I’ve been using the Pushover API to send confirmed AI ‘person’ has been detected within my motion zones. The Pushover API is limited to 2.5MB for each notification and my 8MP is creating approx. 3.5MB files which Pushover ignores due to the size limit.
Blue Iris doesn’t allow me to reduce the alert image size when setup with AI. Either I reduce the cameras resolution but at a massive cost of image/video quality or I try work out some sort of solution to this problem.
I run WG VPN back to my house but sometimes I don’t connect and this would obviously stop my instant notifications like I get when running through Pushover. I want to get live notifications without the size limit.
Can I host something myself to cut out the limits of Pushover? I am running latest stable pfSense+ on bare-metal. I have plenty spare resources left on the Blue Iris/Jellyfin/general server.
