Action Tiles not working on Google Nest wifi

Alan Raczek 10 months ago in Media Tiles / Video Camera Feeds updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 10 months ago 3

Hi-

Using blue iris 5 and Actiontiles with a new Google Nest mesh Wifi. Google nest creates a new subnet so all my cameras are there on the ‘86’ subnet. I also moved my blue iris server to a wired connection off the google router. Also on the ‘86’ subnet. I modified the urls in Actiontiles for the new BI server address. I am also using fully kiosk browser. The cameras will not show up in Actiontiles. Not sure if there are some ports that need forwarding or not, I would assume so.

Any ideas?

I need to know how ActionTIles is accessing my BI web server, what path does it take? The addresses used are obviously private addresses so AT just uses the local network? I also have an issue with actually seeing that the Blue IRis Server web server port '81' is actually open. Can't find it.

ActionTiles is able to display whatever is available to your network. I don't know the specifics of your Blue Iris configuration, but if you are able to view the video using a stock browser, ActionTiles should also be able to display the video on that device.

Hello-

I fixed this issue. The guts of my question was does actiontiles (being a web based application) require camera's to be exposed to the Internet? Does camera data traverse the internet and back to my network? Just trying to get an idea of the flow.

Regardless the issue was the Blue Iris server was not exposing port 81. At a suggestion in a Blue Iris forum I ran the Remote Access Setup Wizard again and camera's then came into Actiontiles, port 82 was there. I had previously already port forwarded for 81 to my FIOS lan.

Thank you for the help.

Hi Alan,

The camera does not have to be exposed to the Internet and it's traffic is not routed anywhere. ActionTiles is agnostic about the source of media.

I'm glad you have figured out your issue. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks

Alex
