    Most PTZ are on the higher side due to everything they offer. I know almost every customer I do a consult for asks for the PTZ camera until they see the price. Most of them dont know why they even want one, pros and cons, and end up going with stationary cameras that end up serving them way better in the long run. You can pick up the new Dahua 2231 for around $130 shipped! @looney2ns did a great review here: Review-Dahua IPC-HDW2231RP-ZS Starlight Camera-Varifocal

    Hi @Prinler Thank you for your reply, I have 3 Dahua and I think about and add on Auto PTZ Tracking to tracking on auto way when I have some movement on my front way.

    Use cheaper model SD52C225U-HNI or SD50225U-HNI, these 2 around 330usd.

    I would add another one over the garage light near your front door so that you would get a good image of anyone coming up your driveway on that side to approach your front door.
