SV3C PTZ Camera properly working!

Post by sersasso »

Hi Gents,

just finished to make the camera fully working in ZM... Was a bit of work but DONE.

As soon as I have time I will post here the details. Is anyone of you using SV3C PTZ cameras?

Cheers,
Sergio

Good morning.

I'm looking for a wi-fi camera supported by ZoneMinder
for a research project
(i need both video and PTZ API support).

I have seen this item provided by SV3C:

https://amzn.to/3tlN360

I'm going to buy this device, but before I need to know whether
ZoneMinder supports this kind of camera.

@sersasso:

Is the work you done in order to make ZM compatible with your SV3C
camera available somewhere (i.e. as open-source script or
tutorial ?)

In your hw configuration, was ZoneMinder able to support also the PTZ
(Pan/Tilt/Zoom) functionalities of the camera ? Or just the video
grabbing via RSTP ?

If PTZ is supported, how it works ? Have you used the Onvif.pl
PERL script for device control, or have you written a custom
PERL script that exploits the RESTful API used by the
configuration web interface of the camera producer ?

Is zoom supported ? Or only pan-tilt functionalities ?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

I have been using the SV3C cameras for several ZM installations. They do well and capture good video for the price. I even have one of their 8mpx cameras on a ZM system. Sees tags quite well at at least 50 ft without having the expand thiings.

I just purchased a SD8OE-5MP-HX. I get beautiful video out of it into ZM. I am trying to figure out how to send PTZ commands to it to control it. This camera will be used as a weather observation camera looking SW (the direction we get tornados from). I would like to be able to use the PTZ function in order to observe the sky better.

If anyone can give me some guidance I will much appreciate it.

I spent several days searching for this info online. This thread kept coming up for my SV3C's 1080p and 5pm PTZ cameras.

I eventually found the settings that worked, and maybe my settings will help someone.

Controlable: Checked
Control Type: Netcat ONVIF
Control Device: MainStreamProfileToken (default?)
Control IP: 10.0.13.67:8080 (replace with your own device IP)
Auto Stop Timeout: 1.00 (anything less caused PTZ to continue moving to it's stop points)

Anyways, hope it saves someone some time.

This worked for my SD8OE-5MP-HX. Does great, there are a few buttons I am going to see how to block, this is used by weather folks and sometimes people punch the wrong buttons.
I am very glad to see it working.

I too just purchased a similar cam; the SD8W-5mp-HX. It took a bit to discover the rtsp setting which is rtsp://user:pass@ip:554/1 and seems to stream ok. I can control it with the settings of:

Control Tryp: Netcat ONVIF
Control Device: MainStream (Is this needed??)
Control Address: user:pass@ip:8080

This camera also supports the rtmp setup; but I don't know what the path is. So my question is does someone know the rtmp settings for this? The iSpy documentation only has rtsp which I got from their site.

TIA
