Improving PTZ Control Range With CM19A
Why can I pan and tilt my cameras from my remote, but not from my computer?
If you are having problems with your remote control or motion sensor, it is always a good idea to first make sure you have fresh batteries in it.
Your USB Transceiver (CM19A) uses radio frequency ("RF") signals to communicate with the pan/tilt mechanisms, so it is best to set up the interface for optimal transmission. Here are some options to try:
- Position the CM19A as high as possible on the wall, and as far away from your computer as possible.
- Hold your remote control right next to the CM19A and see if it can still move the cameras.
- Use a USB extension cable to reposition the CM19A further away from the computer.
