Learnings from past tickets.


Advanced Camera Functionality
Two-way talk
Two-way talk functionality is rarely supported by ONVIF.
Engineering often reverse engineers the functionality in the corresponding camera driver.
BI Drivers section in the Camera Connector article explains how to leverage BI drivers.

If no drivers exist or work, put the camera on the WAN for remote testing.
The PTZ / Control article discusses PTZ functionality in detail

Gotcha 1: No PTZ Functionality
See Connecting PTZ functionality to Blue Iris section of PTZ / Control article.

Gotcha 2: PTZ stopped working.
See Gotcha 3.
