Control PTZ camera Presets

Francisco Oliveira 5 months ago in Devices / Cameras updated by Ricardo Pinto | visiontech.pt 5 months ago 4

On cameras with PTZ, there is a command to goToPreset. What parameters should I use?

I have several presets defined in the camera already, but its impossible to request it from bos.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Usually the presets can be called with the specific ptz url from the camera, if supported.

So if your camera does support that, you'll need a url to call each preset and build some buttons or tasks to fire them up.

Like Dahua for example:

http://username:password@ip_address/cgi-bin/ptz.cgi?action=start&channel=0&code=GotoPreset&arg1=0&arg2=1&arg3=0

Thanks for your answer. I'm using Hikvision camera. that don't work... any idea? thanks

Perfect! That's it. You need to try it out first, sometimes they changed the urls, but if it works, you're done with the problem.

I pointed out Dahua as an example, as I didn't knew what manufacturer you were using.

Best regards
