PTZ camera stays at its Home position for the majority of the time. Every x minutes, or on 1/4, 1/2, or hour, PTZ makes a preset tour then returns to home.
It would be nice if motion detection was disabled during the tour so as not to be indexed during smart searches. In fact, it'd be nice if motion detection was disabled any time the ptz is in motion.
I have not tried the API yet to see if a Tour ID would be recognized as a PresetID, I'm guessing not since Tour ID's do not appear in the PTZ preset dropdown in the Generic Event Action section. But even if that worked, it would still not solve the motion indexing during PTZ travel issue.
