    How to configure PTZ Autotracking in a Tour

    Setup PTZ Autotracking

    To configure PTZ Autotracking in a Tour, you will need to configure settings in the Web Interface of the camera and in the Recorder Interface.


    Autotracking will not work while the camera is changing presets. It must reach the next preset then load the IVS rule, 1-2 seconds after the camera arrives at the preset, Autotracking will work. For this reason, it is recommended to set the Preset time at it's minimum value (15 seconds).

    2. Set up a tour using these preset locations -

    3. Configure PTZ auto tracking to the presets defined in step one -
