When you click a target on a map, video is displayed from the camera that is most optimally positioned to see the target. If this camera is a PTZ camera, you can configure how much the camera zooms in on the target, based on the radius you set.

What you should know

The zoom is calculated by the RSA Surveillance plugin so that the field of view includes the width of the target plus the configured radius on the right and the left.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. Select the Restricted Security Area Surveillance role, and then click the Properties tab.
  3. Click Show advanced settings.
  4. In the Auto-zoom section, set the Radius.
    If the Radius is set to five meters, and the target is one meter wide, the PTZ camera will zoom in to the target until the video frame shows five meters on each side of the target. The video will show a span of eleven meters.
  5. Click Apply.
