From what I can tell in the original documentation I can only see a way to trigger PTZ up/down/left/right and not a way to trigger the camera to go directly to a preset. Is this possible and does anyone know what the URL would be?

Trying to trigger from my smarthome to move a ptz to a preset when a door is opened. The system doesn't support digest authentication (only basic) that the Dahua camera's use now. So I need to find another way.

I did try...that thread confused me because I was trying to do this from OUTSIDE of BI from my smartthings hub. However...that helps tremendously...as I finally found in there:

http://{BI ip address}:{port}/cam/{cam_short_name}/preset=2

works exactly like I wanted. THANK YOU!!!!!
