Using Helm for home cameras with Blue Iris

I set up my Helm to work with my home video cameras, since I didn’t want email alerts that include pictures taken inside my house going to servers that I don’t control.

It works great! It’s actually a faster turnaround for an SMTP alert from my Blue Iris server to get to my Helm inbox than it was using the Gmail servers.

Nice! It’s a great feeling when you know your email isn’t in the cloud. I’ve got my whole family setup on my Helm and when we email each other everything stays on my server.

That’s a great use case I hadn’t thought of. Have been thinking about making a couple pi cameras. Will have to look at something like this!
