Important Message from Foscam Digital Technologies Regarding US Sales & Service

We, Foscam.US (aka Foscam Digital Technologies and now Amcrest Technologies), are an independent United States based distributor of "Foscam" branded products. We have been offering telephone support, US local warranty and building the Foscam brand in the US for the past 7 years. However, we are deeply saddened to report that, even after all of this, our overseas suppliers have decided to undercut us and supply to our major customers directly. For this reason, we have no choice but to suspend telephone support for all Foscam branded products. If you have purchased a Foscam camera directly from us or from one of our authorized retailers, technical support is still available via email at

For customers who have not purchased from us directly, we advise you to please contact Foscam Shenzhen or the distributor which you have purchased from. In the meantime, we have launched our own new brand of IP cameras called Amcrest, which has superior quality products and full telephone technical support 7 days per week. We hope you can support us in our new venture. For more information, please visit

FI8918W: Preset (set/go)?!?

Postby FredGuy » Wed Jan 26, 2011 1:56 pm

Does anybody know what the PRESET (set/go) setting in the “For Operator” menu is good for and how it works? I can’t find anything in the manual. Also, how can I save my settings. Each time I exit the camera menu and login again all settings are back to default.

You can "set" one of several fixed positions and "go" to it.
This is how it is done:
    - In "For Operator" , adjust the camera to your preferred position.
    - Choose "1"
    - click on "set". This is your preset #1 where the camera will go to after a boot, provided you follow also the next steps:
    - In "For Admininistrator", go to "PTZ settings"
    - uncheck "disable preset"
    - check "go to preset on boot"
    - click "save", the camera will reboot and stop at position #1
You can then create several other preset positions, just positioning the camera, then selecting a nunber and clicking "set".
When you click "go", the camera will move to the selected position.
