Is there a way to make LMCE automatically control the DCS-5300G to pan across a wide area? Is there a way to use LMCE's motion detection subsystem to use that panned view?
You can save positions and do a move to them fast. There is also a auto guard feature sweeping selected positions.
Maybe by panning around and taking still pix that motion compares, as if each panned position were a different stationary camera. But does the DCS-5300G reposition exactly enough that two passes won't align different enough to trigger motion's detection, even if nothing in the scene has changed?
i would not use a panning cam for motion detection. They are fooled easily. I would use motion detectors and let the camera pan to the triggering sensor to record frames.
