PTZ camera Feature requests

Hey, I love my 823A's, I recommend them to lots of friends who also love them. They are of undeniable quality for the price but there are some features enterprise-level that other cameras have that would be fantastic capabilities for the 823A.
As other users have mentioned a cruise/patrol to auto-tracking detected objects would be fantastic. Having a static PTZ so that it can track a moving object reduces the value I'm limited to a very narrow Field of View, however, if I want to cover a large area like a field or parking lot, I want to be able to track an object of interest so I don't have to have a very fast cruise/patrol speed so I capture more glimpses of the object that could have just been tracked.
Another Feature request is a PTZ handover from a static camera. if I have a bullet camera or other sensor monitoring an area of interest, ie a gate, driveway, doorway, etc, I want to be able to set a preset location and when the camera detects motion or a person/vehicle to pivot to that location in response to the detection to auto-track the entity. (This can be done via an external automation system now but I'd rather do it through the app or the client or NVR) Example of the requested feature: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sjtr-XxYhaM&ab_channel=HanwhaTechwinAmerica
The last feature request would be to expose the heading/ angle of the pan and tilt aspects of the camera to an API request. I was hoping that this can be done so that I can experiment with evaluating distance from the camera via machine learning, and some automation based on that.
Thank you for your all suggestions. I will record it and forward it to our product team.
