The primary difference between a patrol and a pattern can be found in their setup. While a patrol is made up of individual presets or movements, a pattern is one continuous recorded pattern.
Step 1. Log into your recorder through the browser.
Step 2. Double click on your PTZ camera from the camera list to start the live stream.
Step 3. Click on "Pattern" under your PTZ controls.
Step 4. Press the "Start Recording" button to begin recording your pattern.
Step 5. Your PTZ camera's live feed will display a message indicating how much memory is left.
Step 6. You may move the camera using the PTZ directional keys. By moving the camera, the available memory percentage figure will begin to decrease. Ensure that you move the camera in the way you would it to patrol.
Note: The movement or pattern you create using the pattern will become the patrol path the camera follows.
Step 7. When satisfied with your pattern, save and stop the recording by selecting the "stop recording" button.
Step 8. To start your camera's patrol, simply press the "start" button and the camera will begin following the path you set.
