  6. After the camera initializes, type the following into the PTZ keyboard to gain control of the camera that you just configured: 0 (zero), 2 (two), CAM, ON  (in that order as seen below).  This tells your controller that you want to control camera ID #2 that your keyboard is attached to.

    Important - Although we configured the address of the camera to be ID #1, your keyboard recognizes the camera as ID #2.  Be sure to increment your ID by one on the controller.  So if your next camera is ID #2, you will control this camera on your PTZ keyboard by initializing camera #3 by pressing: 0 (
    zero), 3 (three), CAM, ON.

    You should now be able to control your camera using your PTZ controller / keyboard.
