Applies to Reolink RLC-423, RLC-423WS.
Please keep in mind: The cameras only can cruise in one direction--Clockwise.
In this article, we set presets 1-5 as shown in the picture below. And the original position of the camera, we name it as 0°.
In your mind, the camera should go to Preset 1 from 0° directly, and then proceed preset 2-5 in the way (showing as the arrows below):
However, as we said previously, the camera only moves in one direction-- clockwise, thus it will move from 0° to preset 1 in this way as shown below( look on the arrows' direction):
And then move from preset 1 to preset 2 as shown below:
Move from preset 2 to preset 3:
And then proceed preset 4 &5:
Finally, if you don't stop cruise, it will start the next routine from preset 5 to preset 1 and repeat the previous steps above:
This is how the cruise works and the reason for design it in this way is the camera can correct its cruise calculation only when a full rotation is finished.
Thus this is not the camera's fault or firmware's flaw.
