Use PTZ controls on Axis Camera

I have an Axis camera (AXIS M5014 PTZ) and I am using axis_camera package to get the video stream. The video stream using axis.py works perfectly fine.

Now I am trying to use axis_ptz.py node to control PTZ parameters of the camera. Firstly, there is barely any documentation on this page explaining how you can actually set the parameters for dynamic configuration. After some research I found that rosrun rqt_reconfigure rqt_reconfigure opens a GUI for you to set parameters on different available variables. Now, only "pan" variable works, and "tilt" doesn't do anything. Are there and examples/tutorials/documentation that can help me out?
