Can the pan/tilt cameras be set to do a guard tour (a continuous pan/tilt of the area)?
Alarm.com cameras do not currently have guard tour functionality, but pan/tilt cameras do have the option to point the camera to a user-created angle when a specific event-triggered event takes place.
Example: If the front door is opened, the camera can be told to pan to the front door and record. For more information on creating or updating pan/tilt presets, see Change a pan/tilt camera's position presets.
