Can The Pan/Tilt Cameras Be Set To Do A Guard Tour (a Continuous Pan/Tilt Of The Area)?

How Can We Help?

You are here:
< All Topics cameras do not currently have guard tour functionality, but pan/tilt cameras do have the option to point the camera to a user-created angle when a specific system-triggered event takes place.

Example: If the front door is opened, the camera can be told to pan to the front door and record. For more information on creating or updating pan/tilt presets, see Change a pan/tilt camera’s position presets
