Greetings,

I just installed a new PTZ camera from Dahua (Dahua SD22404T-GN)
, it has an awesome feature for the privacy masking. The area for privacy masking changes as well when moving the camera to another position. Just Aswesome!

But I want it a little bit different again, hopefully there is a way.

Previously I had a fixed Camera, in Blue iris I set up this camera twice , one for me and one for visitors, the visitors stream had a privacy mask from blue iris on an area. This works fine.

Now with this PTZ camera , that would work, when the camera moves a bit the privacy mask moves as well when I set it up in BI.
The Dahua camera software has this nice feature that the privacy mask moves and zooms with it. Is there a way that this Privacy mask will only be visible for "me" and not the users?

I was looking in for example the main and substream, only on the substream a privacy mask , and pull the substream for the "visitors" , but that doesn't seem to be an option.

It doesn't seem that BI has the option for PTZ cameras to move the privacy mask.

Does someone has an idea for me ?

*edit*: I was looking for firmware , maybe a newer firmware has an update which I can use. But the website from dahua on what I fond on the camera doesn't make sense to me:

It looks like the camera has newer firmware as what you can download on the website ? but I probably misread it.

Thanks
Cor
