To easily switch between different shots (and to save up some time), PTZ cameras support Presets which are specific Pan/Tilt/Zoom positions. They can be stored and recalled from an IR remote controller (as explained below), the camera web gui, a controller, a control system… You can store up to 255 presets (with 0.1° accuracy) within our cameras.
This article will explain how to set a preset with the CM22 remote controller where each preset is assigned to a specific number from 1 to 9 (preset 0 is reserved as the default preset/position after the camera boots up if it needs to be different than the default HOME preset).
1. To set a preset, first point the camera in a specific directing and a specific zoom position (and with a specific manual focus if required).
2. Assign that position to a number by pressing the button SET PRESET, then the number you wish.
3. You can call that preset (or any other preset previously set to a number) by pressing its corresponding number on the remote controller.
To sum up:
To set a Preset: [PRESET] → [<number>]
To call a Preset: [<number>]
4. Now if you wish to delete a preset, press the CLEAR PRESET button, then the number that corresponds to that preset (Note that assigning another preset/position to that number will erase the previous preset)
To sum up:
To clear a Preset: [CLEAR PRESET] → [<number>]
* Note that for Preset 10 and above you will need another solution (web GUI, control software, IP or serial commands..)
