AUTO SCAN INSTRUCTIONS
|Auto Scan Notes
Auto SCAN means that the camera will scan
between two points. That's it, just two.
We are talking about AUTO SCAN not AUTO TOUR.
|What is AUTO SCAN?
||Auto Scan is TWO points that you can have the camera
scan back and forth between. When you activate the auto scan
feature the camera will go to point A, stop for a few seconds then
slowly scan it's way to point B. It will stay at point B for a few
seconds then scan its way back to point A. It will do this over
and over until someone interrupts the process by moving the camera
manually with the joystick. Once the joystick has been
touched the auto scan process has to manually restarted. Actually
any command sent to the camera telling to move to another point
will stop the auto scan process. It doesn't have to be from a
joystick. It could be a command sent from your DVR or any other
device that is capable of sending commands to the camera.
|Setting the Two points.
||Using your joystick, move the camera to the view
that you want the start point to be. The left side of the parking
lot for example. PRESS: 52 PRESET This sets Point A. Now
use your joystick to the view where you want the end point to be.
the right side of the parking lot for example. PRESS: 53 PRESET
This sets point B.
|Starting the AUTO SCAN
||There are three commands you can use to start the
auto scan process.
Pressing 51 CALL makes the camera scan between the two
points in SLOW SPEED scan mode.
Pressing 52 CALL makes the camera scan between the two
points in MEDIUM SPEED scan mode.
Pressing 53 CALL makes the camera scan between the two
points in FAST SPEED scan mode.
AUTO TOUR INSTRUCTIONS
|Auto Tour Notes
Auto TOUR means that the camera will tour between
up to SIXTEEN points in the order that you programs them.
We are talking about AUTO TOUR not AUTO SCAN
|What is AUTO TOUR?
||A good example of auto tour would be to have the
camera look at several parking spaces in a large parking lot. The
camera could first look at parking space #1, then move to parking
space #2 The parking space #3 and so on up to sixteen parking
spaces. Once you have all the preset points set the camera will
scan through all the preset positions starting with preset
position #1 working it's way thought all the preset positions up
to sixteen. When the camera gets to position # 16 it will start
the tour over again by going back to position #1
It will do this over and over until someone interrupts the
process by moving the camera manually with the joystick.
Once the joystick has been touched the auto tour process has to
manually restarted. Actually any command sent to the camera
telling to move to another point will stop the auto tour process.
It doesn't have to be from a joystick. It could be a command sent
from your DVR or any other device that is capable of sending
commands to the camera.
You don't have to set all sixteen positions. Your tour could only
be two positions. It could be 10 positions. It's going to be the
number of positions that you program into the camera however many
that may be.
||It's a good idea to manually go through and clear
all the preset points manually before you mount your camera.
"BENCH TESTING" The camera and it's operation before
mounting will save you a lot time and confusion later on. It will
let you get familiar with the cameras operation before you add in
the confusion of distance and cabling.
|Clearing the Preset Positions
||First move the camera to any point you want. PRESS:
1 PRESET, This sets position #1 on the tour. Now move to the
camera to another point (Not to far, just nudge it to the right a
little using the joystick) and PRESS: 2 PRESET, This sets
position #2. When we are done clearing out all the other preset
positions and we start the auto tour our camera should go back and
forth between these two points.
Now: PRESS: 3 CLEAR, then 4 CLEAR, then 5 CLEAR,
then 6 CLEAR. Repeat this all the way up to 16 CLEAR. Again,
this clears out any presets that may have been set by the factory
|Start the tour test
|PRESS: 51 PRESET. The camera should now go
back and forth between the two points that we set in position #1
and #2. It should just go back and forth. Once you see its working
right tap the joystick to stop the TOUR.
If you really want to test the camera try setting all sixteen
presets. Do something simple like make the camera TOUR in a
circle. Point the camera straight out level with the
landscape. Press 1 PRESET, move the camera just a little to
the right with the joystick and press 2 PRESET. Move the camera a
little more to the right and press 3 PRESET, a little more to the
right 4 PRESET a little more, 5 PRESET. Keep doing this until you
get to 16 PRESET. Then press 51 PRESET and the camera should one
by one go through all 16 preset positions making a full circle stopping
in all the positions that you set.
||A preset position can be any position you can point
the camera at. One could be zoomed in on a car in parking spot #1,
Two could be zoomed all the way out so you can see the entire
parking lot. Three could be zoomed in on the door of the building across
the street. Basically a preset can be any positions you can
manually move the camera to with the joystick. Remember the TOUR
is going to start at preset #1 and work it's way all the way
Lets say you have preset #1, 2, 3 and 4 set but you clear out
preset #5. And lets assume you have something set in number 6, 7
and 8. The camera will skip # 5 because there isn't anything set
in that position.
||You can not adjust the speed of the TOUR. It's
|Stop Point Delay
||You can not adjust how long the camera pauses at
each preset point. It's factory fixed.
