Naming phones for BlueIris Geofence
« on: July 29, 2016, 05:01:12 pm »
My wife and I both use Motorola Razrs.  They both show up in Blue Iris as XT1080.  Is there a way to give them nicknames in BI based on the MAC address?  (Registry hack?)  I have looked at the phones options and can find no way to do this in Android.

Thanks!

It's based off of the phone's name. I changed mine in Android and the changes took a bit to update in BI if I remember correctly.

Android Settings --> About device --> "Device name"

Thanks.  That is not editable on mine.  Finally found a site that said change it via "Bluetooth" menu.  Device name was there and editable.  Worked.

Bugged me for a couple years.
