If you want your camera to turn back to monitor your garage gate after it has panned or tilted for other purposes, say, tracking a stranger, you could resort to setting up a monitor point.

Step 3. Set up the monitor point.

  • Click set_it_as_monitor_point.png to set the current point as the monitor point.
  • Click return_to_monitor_point.png so the camera will return to the monitor point immediately upon your click.
  • Click set_time_interval.png to adjust the time interval (from 10 to 300 seconds) for the camera to return to the monitor point automatically. For example, the picture below means that the camera will return to the monitor point in 20 seconds after the camera stops panning/tilting/zooming.
