Home surveillance software suggestions?


I've installed several cameras around my house/property and am trying to decide on a software to control/monitor them. I have a home server that will run the software and store all the recordings. I've tried Blue Iris and it seems to have all the features I want, but am curious if there are any others that people here prefer?

Blue Iris seems to be the one I always see recommended. What didn't you like about it?

It seems fine, the only thing I don't like is unless you pay monthly maintenance, you don;t have any new version protection, but that isn't a huge deal. Mostly just doing my due diligence to see if there are others worth checking out.

Fair enough; I was just curious as I'm planning to do this myself this summer.

New versions of BI come out every couple years and are not expensive for existing users. So I never get the support package. I just buy the updates when they come out. Works for me, anyway.
