A customer recently contacted CCTV Camera Pros and asked the following:
I have a Geovision GV-1480 surveillance system working fine. It is Geovision software Version 8.31. I want to know how do I add one or two PTZ cameras for parking lot I like PTZ-A10X Pan Tilt Zoom Camera, and its demo on your website.
CCTV Camera Pros providing the following information:
Thank You for contacting CCTV Camera Pros. In order to use two PTZ-A10X Pan Tilt Zoom Cameras with your Geovision surveillance DVR, you must add a Geovision GV-COM RS-485 PTZ controller to your system which you can find here:
You can also use a Geovision GV-NET PTZ controller if you prefer that the controller is installed inside the PC instead of as an external USB device.
PTZ cameras require an additional pair of cable for the PTZ controls. This cable pair connects to the GV-COM controller. When setting up more than one PTZ camera, you can daisy chain the RS-485 cables from one PTZ to the next. This means that you run the RS-485 cables (typically a single pair from a CAT-5 or CAT-3 is used) from the GV-COM or GV-NET to the first PTZ camera, then run an additional cable pair out of the RS-485 of the first camera and into the RS-485 inputs of the second camera.
