Ordered a PTZ the other day, looking forward to see what it can pick up using the auto tracking and to cover my car when parked on the street. Pretty sure there's a lot of car door checking thieves around this neck of the woods. Already been done by them once a while back when I must have forgotten to lock up properly. A couple of neighbours have had their cat-converters chopped off too. So will be nice to have some half decent street coverage.
Best thing to do is to set up checkpoints and then link those checkpoints to your other Dahua cameras. Once a specific static camera has an motion detection/IVS event that then triggers the linked PTZ to look at that checkpoint.
Also set the auto tracking to restart every 10s or so, otherwise when someone stands next to your car for longer than 10 seconds the auto tracking will lose interest and stop tracking.
That model specifically is an interesting choice of camera. Did you consider the PTZ TiOC? It looks a bit like a child’s toy but it‘s a really good PTZ.
