This thread has been created for end users to discuss the topic of PTZOptics potentially adding a form of a tally light to the cameras capabilities.

Currently PTZOptics cameras do not have a Tally Light built-in.
Please provide any thoughts or feelings on the potential addition of a tally light as a capability of the cameras.
That USB 2.0 port on the back of the camera is there solely to provide 5 volts of power for 3rd party devices that need to be used with the camera. So yes, please feel free to use this to power that 5 volt device.
