The BZBGEAR camera plugin by stream deck enables owners of BZBGEAR PTZ cameras to manage camera controls and settings from one simple platform. Let’s go over the set-up process and primary features of this application.
To get your BZBGEAR PTZ camera set up with the stream deck plugin, you’ll first need to input your camera’s IP address. Your camera’s IP address can be found on the camera itself or in the camera’s manual. Here’s an example of what an IP address looks like: (18.104.22.168). Each number in the set can range from 0 to 255. The full IP addressing range goes from 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255. If you have trouble finding your IP address, contact the BZBGEAR tech support team for assistance.
After you’ve located your IP address, click on any button to access the camera IP input field. Once the IP input field is available, plug in your camera's IP address. The application will then take a few seconds to verify the IP address and connect your camera to the software.
Once your camera’s IP address has been verified, you will have access to the PTZ (pan, tilt and zoom) controls, auto-focus functions and zoom levels. You can repeat this process for every camera you need to add to the software.
Once your PTZ camera is ready to go, you can set up to 13 presets for your PTZ camera. Select a preset number, choose your desired camera angle for that preset, and make sure it’s set. When you’ve successfully set a preset, you’ll be able to recall that camera angle at any time. Just select the preset number and your PTZ camera will automatically move to capture the area of interest.
