Yeah do not use MD and SMD with IVS, just IVS.

Try just the intrusion box and see if that improves performance. If not, then try the tripwire.

But do not have the intrusion box be the whole field of view. If you do, that is how it starts that wander at first start to track and loses it. Ideally the subject needs to be as close to the center of field of view as possible in most instances.

Wow!! Got to say seeing sweet results applying the tips you gave me. It's like I have a totally new Ptz camera. Finally using auto-track. Got this cam back in Mar 2021 from Andy on Amazon. Was running on a Lorex NVR till I started reading about Blue Iris with DeepStack on this form. Had my nephew build me a new computer just to run BI. Still dont have it running really well, thinking of doing a reinstall before I opt for the $99.00 support upgrade. Don't get anything on cams at night even though I'm running the custom DeepStack models from @MikeLud1. You can tell I don't know a lot about this stuff, but it's fun trying to learn.

Auto tracking seems to track at night, its early though. Got this by looking back though the camaras clips in BI. Didn't get flagged or triggered, no recording. Also, looks like it's the sub stream and the picture are pulsing. Doing this at night.

Yeah that tracking looks pretty good. Got past most of the trees. Stumbled a little at the end, but I think with all that was there it would probably poop out soon thereafter anyway.

Pulsating is usually an FPS and iframe issue - do yours match (make them both 15).

Looks like you need to either turn on motion in BI so when the camera moves it goes mainstream, or make sure the camera is pulling ONVIF triggers so that it goes mainstream.

I mainly use everything default for image quality and it works great. There is overwhelming number of configurations but at least AT was easy to get working. I would say it works 95% of the time perfectly. I am now tempted to get second one but not sure where to place it. Due to large size it looks out of place on a house.

My FPS/iFrame was at 30/30. Changed to 15/15. When I right click my camera, "Motion detection" is checked. Is that what you mean? No problem with mainstream play back of a flagged video during the day. Camera was already set to pull ONVIF triggers. I think this triggered before I was done resetting the FPS. Can't be sure, will have to wait for another car. No auto tracking of the car now.

We can get away with a slower shutter speed with a PTZ, but you do not get any blurring of someone walking with it set to default/auto shutter? I guess you must have as much light as @ljw2k because he has been able to run his on default.

DeepStack is timing out. Running in the 1000 to 10000's ms. That car video was 93% car but took 8022ms

WOW - either an underpowered system or a setting needs changed. Given the system you mentioned you have in your other thread, must be a setting. Post screenshots of your AI settings in global and then for the camera. How many cameras are you using DS on and how many can trigger at the same time?

Good tracking on this video. 10003ms through DS, also DS says it restarted after this.

OK - 20 images with banana in the cancel is a long time. That is the issue as Deepstack has to run thru all 20 images.

Does the camera field of view really need 10 seconds before it is able to identify an object?

Try turning off the "begin analysis with leading edge" and either take out banana or reduce the number of images and see if you can find the sweet spot.

It's an excellent PTZ especially with the new updated firmware and got the upgrade bug to the Hik 8mp PTZ with the larger sensor.
Is there a Dahua equivalent of that one?

k, using 6 images at 500ms and turned off "begin analysis with leading edge". Think I used those settings reading your guys LPR threads.:banghead:

I noticed I have one issue. Can't figure out if it's a software bug or power issue. In some cases when camera completes tracking subject it restarts and comes back online in couple of minutes. I have put it on a new 65w Poe+ switch that doesn't even have any other devices plugged in so I am not sure it's a power issue at this point.

Dahua do have a large PTZ and I think Parley has one so if you send him a PM and ask him what model number it is. I also think Dahua is bringing some New PTz series out soon so might be worth waiting as at the moment they are still in the 80's when compared to Hikvision.

100% cabling or power supply issue and been talked about many times on other threads on the forum.

Pulsating is usually an FPS and iframe issue - do yours match (make them both 15).

Still had pulsating on night shot last night. Went into setting this morning and noticed in sub stream2 (display) FPS was 15 but iFrame was 30. Got them both on 15/15, will have to wait till tonight to see if it's fixed. I'm sure this the problem, thanks for the tip.
