Camera will pan to an area but will not stay there.

The camera can be run through it's test mode fine but to pan to an area and stay there it will not do that. It returns to the preset position.

Read the manual, it is caused by menu setting" Power up Done" or "Park",
Power up done- What you want PTZ Camera to do after it's config done,
Park-- what you want it to do after xx seconds inactive.

Most PTZ cameras have an "inactivity" setting. If no command inputs are entered into the keypad for a programmed amount of time, typically between 30 seconds - 5 minutes, the camera will return to it's pre-set position. You should be able to turn this off in the camera programming. A good way to test to see if this is the problem would be to point the camera to an area, then make very tiny adjustments to the direction every 2-3 seconds. If the camera does not go to the pre-set, then inactivity is turned on. Also, point the camera to an area and time how long before it returns to pre-set. If it is the same amount of time on every occasion, this would also indicate that inactivity is turned on.

Let me know if this does not work, or if you don't know how to access the programming menu - steven.burman@commandtechnologyassociates.com

I would power down the main cabinet for 1 min. And unplug the battery in the cabinet. Most of the time this cabinet ( panel ) is located in a closet and contains the main brains of the system. Sometimes there is also a reset on the motion but when used, it can put the motion in test mode. You can also check the batteries in the motion ( if its wireless) The first thing I would do is power down everything and disconnect the battery. This resets and works 90% of the time. You might need the key to get into the box.

Why is my Lorex mini color weatherproof security camera only working in black and white d not showing color ?


Make sure it is not in a really shaded area. If the camera does not see enough light, it will stay in black and white mode. If that is not the issue, you might want to contact Lorex directly with the Camera model number.

It sounds like the Infrared LED are not on (there are 8 of them on the fornt of the unit), it should automatically turns on when it senses dark scene. You can find out at night using the digital camera pointing at the LEDs, you should see white glow on your digital camera.
The problem can be caused by the power supply that supplies the power the LED assemblies or the detector circuits that suppose to turn on the LED when the surrounding area is dark has failed.

You don't mention if both cameras are malfunctioning. If so, yes it is a power problem. Each camera needs additional amperage when it switches from day to night mode. The power source is probably fine during daytime hours but can't supply the demand when the ir's kick in at night. If your power is being supplied by plug in transformers then purchase a new one with the same voltage rating (most are 24VAC) but a higher Volt/Amp rating (amperage or current). If one transformer supplies both units then purchase another identical transformer and power each camera separately. If using a power supply (transformer and power supply board) you are most likely running your cameras at 24VDC. Again, purchase another power supply with the same volltage but a larger continuous amp output. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
