I have an older PTZ that has auto-tracking but no AI. I’m running DS and would like the PTZ to return to preset 1 if DS doesn’t find what I’m looking for. In other words, if no person then return to priest 1. Is this possible with BI?

Off the top of my head, the easiest would be with a spotter cam to tell BI to send the PTZ to a preset.

I think you could cobble something together within that camera by using alerts to send it back to preset 1.

Unfortunately I don’t have a spotter cam.

I was hoping that when DS reports back to BI “nothing found” I could send an Alert to HomeSeer to then control the PTZ. Currently, I have HomeSeer set the PTZ to preset 1 every one minute.

Oh in that case yea, under alerts have it send an alert to HomeSeer if there is no human. Or you might have to do it on to cancel, but that should be possible within the alert section.

That’s what I’m trying to figure out. How to trigger on “Nothing found”. Maybe an email suggestion to Ken?

What if you go with the reset option under alerts and put person in the to skip with box?

I think that would then say if a person comes back, it will skip the command to send it back to preset 1?
