Re: Elementary Question!

Yes, there are two options for suspending motion detection on PTZ movement. In the cameras settings 'PTZ/Control' tab... - Check the 'Suspend motion detection' box. This is the default. - 'Max travel time/motion delay'. Set this to the max time it takes to move the camera to the PTZ preset. For exam...

Re: Substreams and Foscam R2

TimG...

Could you post a screen shor of your video config screen?

Re: Handy FOV/Viewing Angle chart
