The 64-dish MeerKAT radio telescope, currently under construction in South Africa, will become the largest and most sensitive radio telescope in the Southern Hemisphere until integrated with the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). This poster will present the software solutions that the MeerKAT Control and Monitoring (CAM) team implemented to achieve control (pan, tilt, zoom and focus) of the on-site video cameras using the pelco D protocol. Furthermore this poster will present how the outlets of the PDU (Power Distribution Unit) are switched on and off using SNMP to facilitate emergency shutdown of equipment. This will include a live demonstration from site (South Africa).
