I have SD59230-HNI and I have tried to calibrate autotracking for preset. It's tricky to do better than basic calibration. So I left autotracking calibration for now and wait if someone teach us . It's working well if triggering area is middle of picture, but if it's not it loose the object quite often.Cool basic tracking sample. Gotta try it like in the back yard...then have a couple of kids running in different directions behind you to see if it goes all ADD and decides the heck with you, I'm following one of them...or maybe that butterfly over there.
I get that is will pan\tilt when passing the FOV, but to zoom & focus seems like it would be a little more complicated....Curious, are there settings for auto tracking that determine if\when it will zoom in closer to the moving object and what part of that object? Like, when it zooms while moving, how does it choose a person's head vs. their feet?
I read in your post that you don't use any IR lighting with this PTZ but I am curious if you have done any testing with an external IR lighting and how well does it perform with one?with as well as this performs in low light; I dont need any IR lighting.. I thought I might need to add it, but my visible lighting is more than adaquate..
Compared to the MiniPTZ w/IR on, this gives a way better image even w/out IR.. but YMMV.
I wont have to deal with bugs/sprites/weather.. nearly all my outdoor cameras are now using external illumination with the onboard IR disabled, really easy to do w/these Starlights
Thanks.I thought what I paid was the list price, I may have been wrong.. there was another vendor offering it for that price hwen I asked for mine so I just assumed; should know by now not to assume.
Ive had this camera for a while, I should write up a verdict.. I do have a few small complaints, but all should be fixable w/firmware so I was hoping something'd pop up soon.
once I have it setup w/new NVR next week I'll judge this camera and list all its faults.. (IVS wont record on my 4216-4K, and presets sometime require hitting twice to get it to move all the way, its like it quits early, its not loosing orientaiton because it moves to the right place the 2nd time, also the fan in it is audible)
Tell us more about this extensive home automation that you have.Thanks.
I'm probably going to have a similar usage as you. It's going to be mounted in the middle of a ~25' covered walkway that connects my back porch to a detached garage. I do a good bit of home automation and will integrate this into sensors to pan to garage, 2 gates, or 3 doors based on detection to get additional view on areas that will be covered by other cameras.
I wouldn't call it extensive, but I've been messing with it since around 1998 along with tinkering with AVR microcontrollers before there were Arduinos.Tell us more about this extensive home automation that you have.
