Auto tracking
  • Hello,

    Can I suggest evolving software the possibility of doing auto tracking or is it incongruous as a question? :D
  • Do you mean using motion detection and a camera with pan/tilt features, to automatically move the camera to point to the motion? This is a good idea in principal, but I’m not convinced it will work well in practice, and we are not keen to implement features that don’t work well! The problem is that for most cameras, SecuritySpy cannot tell how far the camera will actually move when it issues a pan/tilt command. Plus, different cameras have different angles of view and different ranges of movement, which adds to the complexity.

    I have seen this as an on-camera feature, which is, I think, the only place it can work well, as the camera’s firmware can be programmed with the relevant characteristics about the camera.

Howdy, Stranger!
