Endura: How to lock PTZ control of a camera for a specific duration.

Issue

The camera needs to remain in a fixed position for a set duration.

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

Endura 2.0

Cause

The camera may be required to be on a specific scene and another operator may unknowingly take control of it and move it to another scene.

Resolution

The administrator must setup priorities for different roles under Setup > Roles. At that point once an administrator locks the PTZ functions an operator with lower level access will not be able to control the camera.

  1. From the WS5200 software bring up the camera in Live view.
  2. Right click on the camera.
  3. Select Lock/Unlock PTZ Control.
    • Quick Lock (2 minutes)
    • Lock for Specific Time (seconds, minutes or hours)
    • Unlock PTZ
