ninja ptz control without the remote
« on: October 31, 2010, 03:07:45 PM »

can a ninja ptz mount be controlled with just the cm15 running without a computer via macros and assigned unit house codes? i would like to use an 1r543 to enable a macro stored in AHP(from my pronto remote) B6 on (turn 90 degrees) to the right. and macro B6 off (turn 90 degrees) to the left. is this possible?

I know the CM15A can do it, but I don't know if AHP can create the macro.
I don't see any camera commands, but that could be because I've never bothered to install iWatchOut.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

With the iWatchOut plug-in you can have macros move your Ninja base to a set preset, as well as other video/camera functions.

ok, thats awesome -:), now...when power goes out and is restored, will the mount "go to center" or do a "full left to right" sweep? if it sweeps left and right it could cause a problem and come in contact with another object. i do not own this mount as of yet but i am looking to control my theater blinds and this will do it no problem, it needs only to rotate 90 degrees from full close to full open.

Any ninja bases I have center themselves when power is first applied.

Closing blinds with a ninja. A very interesting idea xscash4fun. Please keep us informed as your project develops.
