I have 5 Panasonic BLC 10 cameras working on iCam, any chance you may look into the Pan & Tilt option, thanks.

Barry

Thank you for your post.

Not at this time but we will keep PTZ support for Panasonic on our list of potential features to add in the future.

 re: logitech orbit AF

Wishlist:
1. An option to turn off the pan/tilt ... since I accidentally pan and tilt often.

2. The pan and tilt swipe logic is not consistent. Please correct that.
I.E., The logic of pulling the camera right (dragging right to left, like pawing right) makes sense.
BUT the logic for tilt up is to swipe up from the bottom (which is backward from the logic
of pan pawing ... swiping right to left to pan right).

I.E., I'd like the logic of tilting up, to be pawing from top to bottom
just like pawing right to left to pan right. (This is why I'd like to just turn it off,
since I can never aim the camera back where it was. :-)

TO BE CLEAR:
Swiping from right to left, pans right.
Swiping from left to right, pans left.
BUT
Swiping from bottom to top, pans up.
Swiping from top to bottom, pans down.

(TO BE CONSISTENT WITH PAN, TILT SHOULD BE:)
Swiping from top to bottom, should pan up.
Swiping from bottom to top, should pan down.

(Or, you could think about the handle on a video tripod.)
Pull handle from right to left, pans right.
Pull handle from left to right, pans left.
Push handle down, tilts up.
Push handle up, tilts down.

The way it is now, you have to reverse wire your brain
when switching from panning to tilting. :-)

We've been able to replicate the PTZ direction issue. It looks like the new version of the Orbit may behave differently than the old version.  There should be a test version for you to try next week.

We updated to the latest Logitech software and the PTZ controls now work correctly for us. There must have been a bug in the previous version of their software. Please update to the latest version of the Logitech software.

The Logitech PTZ support is Windows-only.  Unfortunately, Logitech doesn't provide any method for controlling the cameras on a Mac.

I know and its SO frustrating!  If anyone knows of ANY 3rd party drivers or software that will make these these work, please let me know!!  I found a couple that did, but then Lion changed that and apparently ioxperts used to but it has not been updated in years.  There is a PTZ add on to firefox that you can set up, but used the URL programming and I have no Idea what that is or how to find it.  Any thought or tips and Id be very very grateful

I use a level one 2060 ip-network camera which I guess is not supported for pan/tilt movement. On my Mac i cannot swipe from left to right or vice versa -
nor on my iPad2 .( icam version is 2.4.1)

Could anybody explain me how it works on Mac-Lion or Ipad

thank you and I am looking forward for any help.

hanon8, currently the only cameras with PTZ support are the cameras listed in the first post of this thread, so it won't work with your particular camera.

It looks like a rebranded Foscam FI8918W: http://foscam.us/foscam-fi8918w-wireless-ip-camera-11.html

If that is the case, iCam will support its MJPEG video and Pan-Tilt controls.

Thanks for the quick reply!

I've used your product in the past, its great and loved it with my iPhone.  Just changed to an Android based phone and want to setup cameras to keep an eye on our dogs while we are out to make sure everything is ok.

I'm guessing these follow all the same setup guides as any others?  I'm going to order them now and I'll post if they work or have issues.  thanks again!

I'm a new user and have just set up iCamsource 2.4 (downloaded this afternoon) on a Mac Mini running OS X 10.6 Server. I am connecting successfully with both the iPhone 4S app and the web interface, but the PLZ functions in both these clients are not working even though my camera is the Logitech Orbit AF. So far I have not installed any of the Logitech-supplied drivers. Should I install the Logitech drivers to enable the PTZ functions?

Second question: my iCam screen is divided into four small image squares, with my camera feed occupying just one of them. Is this normal behavior or can I opt for one large image?
