|Security Monitor Pro: Controlling the Movement of an IP Camera|
Controlling the Movement of an IP Camera
Some IP Cameras support PTZ camera movements, which is short for "Pan, Tilt and Zoom". You can pan, tilt and zoom supported IP cameras using Security Monitor Pro. Security Monitor Pro can digitally zoom the picture from any camera to 200% magnification.
To control an IP Camera, select it by clicking on its device preview window and use the following buttons on the preview and monitoring control bar:
- Pan/Tilt: Click on this button. The mouse pointer is replaced by the pan/tilt icon. Now click on a spot in the preview. The camera will move to put that point at the center of the image.
- Zoom In: To zoom a particular portion of the Preview, click on the Zoom In button, then the spot in the preview image you'd like to zoom in on. Every time you do this, the picture is enlarged by 25%. The maximum zoom is 200%.
- Zoom Out: Every time you click on this button, the image is reduced by 25%, until it reaches the original size. You cannot zoom out from the starting picture zoom.
