Hi Folks,

This is pretty basic stuff but I was stumped for an hour trying to figure out how triggers from other cameras work when activating multiple PTZ presets.

Hopefully this explanation may help anyone who tries to set up the same thing.

A picture tells a thousand words.



The PTZ is set on Preset 1 [YELLOW]

When CAM A [RED] triggers, I want PTZ to move to Preset 2 [RED ARROW]

When CAM B [GREEN] triggers, I want PTZ to move to Preset 3 [GREEN ARROW]

How to do this?

-------------------------------------------------------------

Edit CAM A in Blue Iris.

General tab > Groups > Select > Add new group called 'CAM A PTZ'

Trigger tab > When triggered > Trigger Camera Groups 'CAM A PTZ'

Move to preset '2'

Move camera groups 'CAM A PTZ'

OK

-------------------------------------------------------------

Edit CAM B in Blue Iris.

General tab > Groups > Select > Add new group called 'CAM B PTZ'

Trigger tab > When triggered > Trigger Camera Groups 'CAM B PTZ'

Move to preset '3'

Move camera groups 'CAM B PTZ'

OK

-------------------------------------------------------------

Edit PTZ camera in Blue Iris

General tab > Groups > Select > 'CAM A PTZ'; 'CAM B PTZ'

OK

That's all there is to it.
You obviously need to have already predefined your PTZ presets :)

Probably teaching you how to suck eggs but hopefully it'll help someone.

Kind regards
Craig.

Thanks Craig, I was trying to figure out how to do this but I couldn't get it.

Worked first time.
