Triggering Homeseer from Blue Iris

Using MyMonitor is is more reliable and more automatic than just using trigger URLs but using triggers URLs is quick and simple.

First you need a virtual object to update. An easy way to do this is using the createMonDev method in MyMonitor.vb call it from an event with Parameters of Name,type like
Shot of HS event calling the script

This gets you a device similar to this
Shot of HS object
Note this a full MyMonitor object. If you are just using trigger URLs you only need status for values 0, 3 and 4. Note the ref ID of the object created http://10.10.1.45/deviceutility?ref=5596&edit=1

Now open the camera properties and set action on the Alerts tab for the profiles you use

When triggered
HS_IP/JSON?user=USERNAME&pass=PASSWORD&request=controldevicebyvalue&ref=5596&value=3

When reset
HS_IP/JSON?user=USERNAME&pass=PASSWORD&request=controldevicebyvalue&ref=5596&value=4

Replace the bits in yellow with the value for your setup.


The URLs are set via Configure

Now set the Watchdog URLs
Watchdog triggered (offline)
HS_IP/JSON?user=USERNAME&pass=PASSWORD&request=controldevicebyvalue&ref=5596&value=0
When reset
HS_IP/JSON?user=USERNAME&pass=PASSWORD&request=controldevicebyvalue&ref=5596&value=4
