auto-tracking option for ptz cameras

Post by tlex » Wed Jul 17, 2019 5:38 pm

Hi,

I do have a bunch of escam pvr002 cam. I like these cheap camera image quality vs $ ... Even if I have to really secure them behind a good firewall !
But what I would like to achieve is to use BI in order to follow the motion whenever there is motion (sort of "auto-tracking" feature that some higher-end camera have...)

Is there any way to do so ? addon plugins or something ?

Thanks :)

Unfortunately Blue Iris does not have an option for auto tracking for PTZ camera. There once was a product called Track-IT that was developed by a third party that worked with Blue Iris, but the developer has stopped all development many years ago. Your best option is finding a PTZ with auto tracking built into the camera.

I know that iSpy could do this with very basic PTZ's, as I had it going with a Motorola device based on a baby cam a few years ago.

I can't help wondering if BI5's new edge vector detection is a method of working out which direction something is moving in :idea:
