Most DVRs have a ptz controller built in. dring the camera setup you can check that option and control the camera that way with a virtual controller. the other thing is that the stand alone controller will work with both cams but you need to give each one its own address. the older analog ones i worked with were usually pelco P protocol and I think 9600 baud rate and an address set with dip switches 00 to 200 or something.

Hi. Your rj45 on the controller would have gone with to a dvr with rj45. Ptz control or to a breakout box.


The breakout box would of given two output options

But if you want to go rj45 to dvr rs485


Make a new lead up ..... on the rj45 only use two wires one goes to pin 3 and one goes to pin 5


3 will go into dvr +

5 will go into dvr -
