Foscam PTZ used in Scene

Stephan Smit


I would like my Foscam Ip Cam to move(PTZ) to a specific position when a Scene is triggered.

Eg Smoke Scene.

Foscam move from TV Room to Kitchen to take snapshot/record.


I have a HCL V3.601 and Foscam is already setup to work with HCL.


Any advice appreciated

I donnot know if the HCL has the capability to use lua, but I achieved this in my HC2 by sending http-command to the Foscam camera through lua.


The first you have to do is configure a PTZ-preset in the camera with a dedicated name, in your case for example kitchen. After that you can activate the ptz-preset:

For example:

If your camera IP address = on port 80 with user=admin and password=1234 and the presetname=kitchen then the URL-command will looks like this:


You can paste the URL-string in your browser and see if the URL-string is working.

  • Thanks Lambik. I managed to get the String working in browser. Unfortunately HCL have no LUA functionality, will try to create Virtual Device.
