Please kindly note that if you enable smart tracking, the camera will start tracking when being triggered by the moving object. Then, when the tracking ends and it is not triggered for 30 seconds, the camera will rotate to the maximum degree and then return to the original position where the camera is triggered. This should be the reason why you would see the camera rotate itself from time to time.
