it's a model DS-2DF8C842IXS-AELW and during the day it is zoomed out to the end of the street (position 1) and I need it to switch back to position 5 at duck other wise it is useless till I move it.

Hopefully Hikvision allows for commands to be sent over ip like the Dahua cameras do. If they do, then it is a pretty simple task of setting up some automated tasks in BI. The easiest thing to do is probably refer to the Dahua day/night switch utility thread as it contains a pretty good walk through on how to set it up inside of BI (rather than using the Dahua SunriseSunset app). Dahua day/night switch utility - DahuaSunriseSunset

EDIT - actually you might not even need the ip commands. Simply use the actual PTZ Preset functionality of the system.
