Xeoma is pricey if you go above 4 cameras.  The feature set included is nice and I like that it runs on Linux and currently I'm running it in a docker container on my UnRaid system which is nice.

In Xeoma I have it sending a HTTP event on motion start and motion end to CQC and I'm using the HTTP-Trigger driver to set a variable for motionStart and one for motionEnd so I can use those within events.  

The same can be done with Blue Iris with HTTP or MQTT.  I've put in a request to get MQTT support added to Xeoma as well.

Good background info, thanks!  I'm running 14 cameras.  Also running Unraid here to host 3 Win 10 PC instances, 2 with dedicated video and USB ports.

As I'm adding more cameras I'm taking another look at BI Smile

I'm at a tipping point with my BI server. I have a 16 port analog capture card that for the last 13 years has been doing the heavy lifting for motion detection for a majority of the exterior cameras. In the last 2 years I've added some internal IP cameras to monitor the pets / house when away and have also had to start replacing aging analog cameras with IP vs analog. Amazing how long commercial grade cameras will last.  The BI server is now running at 85 - 95% CPU load consistently. Started looking at offloading the motion detection to the cameras themselves and / or going to continuous recording (which will required a storage upgrade)

Sounds like an upgrade in the near future.  I'm running all IP cameras currently and I've been tinkering with the Unifi camera system.  the cameras themselves are of "ok" quality but not great for their prices.  The software is where things shine with Unify but the big downside is they don't have an API or notification mechanism beside mobile push yet for integrating the motion alerts.  Once that comes I may move all of my cameras over but until then I've been back and forth from Xeoma and BI.  They are about the same except Xeoma is far lighter weight on resources than BI and is a client server based where BI is really just the server and if you want the viewer it's the web interface or now the new "client" which is actually a full BI install that you also have to pay for because it can do "remote admin" of sites.  So yeah I've been back and forth between them.  One this is definite that BI is a resource hog but it works with lots of cameras and setups.  I don't even know if Xeoma would work with the analog capture card... it probably would but I've never set it up like that so I don't know.  It's a free download trial....
