Geovision DVR Card Support
CCTV Camera Pros strives to provide the best Geovision support in the industry. We recognize that manufacturers do not always do the best job at explaining in clear detail how to setup and use their products, which is why we provide our own online documentation along with the manufacturers manuals. We hope that you find our Geovision DVR card support pages helpful in building your Geovision surveillance systems.

Geovision supports controlling PTZ cameras directly from its user interface. You must add a RS-485 communication module to Geovision in order to enable PTZ controls. There are two options available to enable RS-485 communication between a Geovision surveillance system and a PTZ security camera. They are the GV-COM and GV-NET devices. Either of these devices can be setup to control our PTZ-92E001 security camera using Geovision. Other PTZ cameras such as Pelco are compatible with Geovision as well.
