So here it is,

A little about my setup, I am currently running Domoticz Version 4.10059 on a Windows OS VM. My Blue Iris is currently running Version 4.8.2.6 on Windows OS VM. Both are working on two separate virtual machines on my ESXi host running Version 5.5.0. Both are running perfectly by them self.

My Domoticz server is using z-wave to control and monitor my house with switches, light+temp+motion sensors, my thermostat, front door lock, door/window sensors and several sonoff devices and much more (Domoticz is not doing my recording or motion detection of the cameras). I use Blue Iris to do all my motion detection, recording, notification and scheduling for my 10 cameras.

I reached out to BlueIris and asked them for some guidance as well as read on their forum and Domoticz about the custom page but was not able to find anything that made it clear and easy. Blue Iris did reply with some helpful info. So I began to play with several HTML pages in the templates folder of Domoticz.

I final wrote my own HTML page;

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Home Blue Iris</title>
</head>

<body>
<img src="IP or URL to your Blue Iris server with port number:1234/mjpg/Short name of the camera" width="200" height="150">
</body>
<footer>
<small>&copy; Copyright 2018 v1 pkenner1</small>
</footer>
</html>

In my example you can see that it is for only one camera running at width of 200 and height of 150. I then created another line for each camera then saved that on my Domoticz server under the Domoticz\www\templates\ folder and called it Blue Iris Cameras.html What is in bold is what you will put your own Blue Iris info in place of the bold text.

Now I have access to my home automation and security cameras from central web page.

I would love to hear any feed back, suggestions, or changes that other have come up with.

Ok guys so I have come up with a better solution. Still have to wright your own custom html page but here it is

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Home Blue Iris</title>
</head>
<body>
<img src="IP or URL to your Blue Iris server with port number:1234/mjpg/index">
</body>
<footer>

</footer>
</html>
