How to connect your cameras to an IP joystick

The next step for many of our customers is setting up a joystick controller. You can connect your PTZOptics cameras with a network-based joystick controller using the camera’s IP address. You can connect to your PTZOptics camera using the link ptzoptics.local/ in any web-browser. You can set a static IP address for your camera in the web-interface. This IP address can be entered into your joystick controller. Each unique camera requires a unique IP address.
