Activate adjustment movementActivate or deactivate the camera PTZ calibration run at boot-up. Please be aware, that the saved positions for your camera will no longer be available, when the calibration is deactivated.

Activate alarm positionActivate the alarm position, if you want your camera to move to a specific saved position once the alarm was triggered. The is especially interesting, if you use an external sensor, like the IN-Motion 500, or the internal audio alarm. Let your camera keep an eye on one side and secondary sensor on the other side. Only available when the camera calibration is active!

Here you can disable the cameras calibration run during start-up (please note that this also deactivates your saved positions!), send it to saved position 1 after a reboot and set the speed and number of auto-scans for the pan & tilt movement when you use the hscan or vscan.

The Pan & Tilt Limits will be displayed next to the PTZ control pad. You can use them to limit the range of movement of your camera (see below).

Avoid alarms while movingIn most cases it is unwanted, that the pan & tilt movement of your camera causes a motion detection. But if you want to be notified whenever your camera is moved, just check this box.
Activate step-by-step movementWith the default settings, your camera will move in one direction as long as you press the arrow button on the control pad. When your connection to the camera is plagued with high latencies, it might happen, that the stop command is lost and your camera moves all the way to the end of range. You can use the one-step motion to prevent this from happening. Your camera will only move one step with every click on the control pad - giving you the highest amount of precision.
Horizontal speedSet the velocity of the horizontal motion of your camera.
Tilt speedSet the velocity of the vertical motion of your camera.
Number of VSCAN roundsSet the amount of vertical runs your camera should perform once you start the vscan function.
Number of HSCAN roundsSet the amount of horizontal runs your camera should perform once you start the hscan function.
