What is Bluecherry?
Bluecherry is a Debian / Ubuntu / CentOS based Linux video surveillance application that supports network (IP) cameras. The Bluecherry software has a low memory footprint, supports ONVIF, and issues GPU for motion detection. This means that a lower end server with a supported GPU (embedded Intel graphics for example) can support multiple streams with low CPU usage.
Bluecherry has both a web view for configuration and live viewing and a open source multi-operating system client (Linux, Windows, OSX). Bluecherry can easily be installed in a virtual machine for testing or deployment and upgraded via standard distribution upgrade methods (ie – no binary blobs to replace manually).
Completely Open Source
As of April 20, 2019 Bluecherry has released the entire software suite as open source under the GPL licensing.
