Hi
I'd like my Foscam camera to go 'back and forth' automatically while being monitored by Blue Iris.
Is that possible? I'd like to see the entire area versus just the single area in which the camera is pointed when not moving.
Thanks and great software guys!!!!

First go into the Foscam admin tool and set position presets for the various positions you'd like to scan to. Also set them in the order you'd like to scan... preset 1 then preset 2, etc. Next go into Blue Iris, select the camera that you'd like to pan, go into the camera setup screen, select the PTZ control tab and check the auto cycle patrol and auto reverse boxes. Be sure to set the travel time to allow enough time for the camera to reach each position. Press ok and your camera should begin panning around.

Is there a way to autocycle or pan on a schedule? I only want to do it during the day at one speed and slower and only some time at night. Do I create a duplicate camera?
