PTZOptics Tutorial: Setting Up SuperJoy to Control Move4K PTZ Auto-Tracking

PTZOptics posted a great article going over how to use the SuperJoy to control auto-tracking. The PTZOptics SuperJoy is a pan, tilt, and zoom camera controller capable of sending custom commands to PTZ to perform unique features such as turning the auto-tracking of a PTZOptics Move camera on and off. PTZOptics Move cameras feature the ability to automatically track a specific subject.

On :   http://<camera ip address>/cgi-bin/ptzctrl.cgi?post_image_value&autotrack&2

Off :   http://<camera ip address>/cgi-bin/ptzctrl.cgi?post_image_value&autotrack&3


Auto-tracking Function HTTP Command
Turn Auto-Tracking On http://<camera ip address>/cgi-bin/ptzctrl.cgi?post_image_value&autotrack&2
Turn Auto-Tracking Off http://<camera ip address>/cgi-bin/ptzctrl.cgi?post_image_value&autotrack&3

Setting Up The SuperJoy
These HTTP commands can be set up to be used with the PTZOptics SuperJoy Custom buttons. The Custom buttons can be configured in the web interface for the joystick controller which you can access via the local IP address displayed on the joystick. You can enter the IP address into any web browser and enter the default user name “admin” with no password to get the login. Once logged in, you can navigate to the Custom Buttons page where you have the ability to set up your four custom buttons on the joystick controller.

Using a PTZOptics SuperJoy is a great way to easily toggle auto-tracking on and off while you are operating a PTZ camera. These HTTP commands for turning auto-tracking ON and OFF can also be used with other systems such as Elgato StreamDeck OR software such as Open Broadcaster Software (OBS). If you have any questions about this setup please let us know and our support team will be happy to assist you.
