    Hi Everyone,
    first thread, newbie to all this business. I just bought BI and a ipc-hdbw4631r-zs to play around. I have everything working (mostly), remote app working on android, camera and setup nicely, triggers etc.

    Only thing I don't seem to be able to get to work in the BI desktop app or mobile app is the zoom in/out, the camera i have is 2.8 to 13mm or something like that, if I use the web interface to the camera directly the zoom works so i know the camera zoom function works, just not through BI, have I missed setting something up?

    Many thanks in advance
    Darren

    Dahua rtsp or find inspect using onvif profile for ptz will work...but its pointless, the camera is not a zoom camera, its a motorized varifocal, this is designed to be set at the time of install not used in realtime. just log into the web interface and use that.
