Since this is a wish list... I wish you hadn't used Java as your development language.  Java ought to be depricated and destroyed.

Setting aside the Java reference in my member name  :o, I think that's a tall order, but since this is a wishlist I'll add your request.

Hi JavaLawyer,

thx for your great work here, seems pretty interesting.
i m using the 5020L to monitor an small oil tank (over-earth tank, outside, cam is inside) last fm 1.03. (date 1-22-14)

first i m wondering why on the dlink support site the last fm is 1.02B05, 06.01.2014 and the "on-air online web login check" finds 1.03.

following points i miss or think these are, well some kind of "buggy" 'faulty'.

1) motion detection >> even set to 11% and area square set only to the oil tank cover (motion square), it detects and sends jpg s "like hell" a lot
-more and much smaller motion square s would be my wish and and
-better less sensitive motion detection like "no detection/disabling when/between sun shining into motion square"
2)motion detection schedule
-i need to make this schedule  Mo-Fr 18:00 till 08:00 (overnight) AND Sa-So 0:00 till 24:00 (so, the whole weekend, full 24h detection) atm not possible without an 24h running pc with the dLink sw.

of course, this cam is not designed for the hardcore outdoor use, but i thought it wouldnt be so much false motion detection alarms. of course sometimes the sun/solar radiation move into the detection square and cause an "motion" detection, maybe theres a way to work a bit against it.

if these points could be realized it would be really great :)

thx in advance and keep up the good work

Hi JavaLawyer,

thx for your great work here, seems pretty interesting.
i m using the 5020L to monitor an small oil tank (over-earth tank, outside, cam is inside) last fm 1.03. (date 1-22-14)

first i m wondering why on the dlink support site the last fm is 1.02B05, 06.01.2014 and the "on-air online web login check" finds 1.03.

The following two posts from the FAQ board should address your first question:

DCS Network Cameras - Why Isn't The Latest Firmware Posted on D-Link USA Sites?
Network Cameras - Security Patch for Select Cloud Camera Models [2/25/2014]

1) motion detection >> even set to 11% and area square set only to the oil tank cover (motion square), it detects and sends jpg s "like hell" a lot
-more and much smaller motion square s would be my wish and and
-better less sensitive motion detection like "no detection/disabling when/between sun shining into motion square"

Added the request for a finer motion detection grid.

I'm not sure how D-Link would address the sun shining. Since the motion detection is triggered based on pixel changes in the field of view, I don't see how the sun can programmatically ignored through firmware. How is the sun differentiated from a burglar shining a flashlight at the camera, a car driving by that reflects the sun into the camera, or a person walking between the path of a sun filled grid area? These are all events that I would think one would want captured... 

???

2)motion detection schedule
-i need to make this schedule  Mo-Fr 18:00 till 08:00 (overnight) AND Sa-So 0:00 till 24:00 (so, the whole weekend, full 24h detection) atm not possible without an 24h running pc with the dLink sw.

Added to the firmware wishlist...  ;)

The DCS-5020L has capable of being setup as a network extender (repeater); however, it would be very useful (at least to me) if it could be setup as an access point.

Here's my wishes for future firmware:

1. Need to be a way to avoid motion detection to react when light condition change. Switching from Day light to Night vision makes motion detection react as if there was movement.

2. Night Vision turns on to early. Would be great if there were a way to set light conditions for automatic switching.

3. IR light destroys picture through window. Need option to disable IR light.

4. Option to delay motion detection after last change. Let's say I go out with the trash, I trigger sending of e-mail and recording. Problem is that this simple action delivers maybe 4 e-mails as it continue to trigger when I move around.

5. Set area of exposure measuring same way as motion detection.

These items are already on the firmware wishlist.

Please elaborate. Not sure I understand this request.  :-\

Since there's no way to remotely disable the camera for privacy purpose.  I'd like to have the ability to pan/tilt the camera to a preset position like the ceiling or back where's nothing to see. I mean a one touch button like the "Move the cam to original position"

Here's my wishlist:

System - Restore to Factory Default (Prompt for reconfirmation). Firmware 1.03 will immediately restore upon clicking this button.

System - Reboot on Schedule (same feature in newer DCS-942L)

The DCS-5020L already has a menu with preset positions to choose from. Unfortunately, the mydlink mobile app does not yet support this feature as it is only accessible from the DCS-5020L web UI.
