Security Camera Software
PTZ cameras are versatile surveillance tools. The acronym PTZ stands for Pan, Tilt, and Zoom, indicating the cameras primary features. They can pan (move left or right), tilt (move up or down), and zoom in or out. These capabilities make them suitable for a variety of applications.
However, if a PTZ camera is constantly changing angles or zooming, it can create challenges with motion detection. When the cameras field of view shifts, the entire scene changes, which might be interpreted as motion. This is where intelligent object detection becomes crucial. Instead of relying solely on pixel changes, modern systems like SmartVision can identify specific objects, such as humans or animals. This minimizes false alarms from changes in lighting, shifting shadows, or other non-essential movements.
