motion AND time rules for recording to FTP?
« on: January 12, 2016, 05:50:18 PM »

I'm new here - bought a DCS-5009L and DNR-202L just before Thanksgiving.

I'm setup to use myDlink, but find the dlinkddns service easier to use, generally, so I usually just access through that.

I experienced issues with browsers and add-ins and Java using the recording to the DNR-202L so, until I got that figured out, I thought I'd use my Buffalo NAS drive, which can function as an FTP "server' (i guess) to keep the camera's recordings.

I see, in the camera setup, where I can set a schedule under Motion Detection, and I have (M-F, 9-5).

I see, in the FTP section of the camera setup, where I can "Enable uploading of video clip to an FTP server" and have it triggered by motion detection -- but it seems to be INDEPENDENT of the aforementioned schedule that I set for Motion Detection.

So I'm getting LOTS of records to my NAS drive, but OUTSIDE of the timeframe that I want.  Yes, I can just go delete them -- but that takes time, and I'm a bit anal and find myself needing to watch them all before I delete them!

Can't these 2 settings work together, so that my motion-detected recordings get written to my FTP server ONLY during the time that I've set for motion detection?

I'm sure I'll have many many many other questions.  I started out small, with my DLink setup, but hope to add one of the new "wide-eye" cameras and an outdoor one soon, too.

Thanks
Cara

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your DCS? Look at the sticker behind or under the camera.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DCSs web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

What Mfr and model is the main host router?

  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DNRs web page under status.

I'd review the user manual for the DCS and check to ensure the configuration of the DCS is correct regarding motion detection and any capture abilities. Also ensure that your time frame capture settings are correct as well. Try setting a simple test time frame, then have someone or you walk in front of the camera and then check the capture files on the NAS for updates.

From the camera's status page:
Firmware Version   1.06.02 (2015-09-09)
Hardware Version   A
Agent Version   2.0.19-b73

I'm in the southeastern US.

Not sure which would be my main host router (I have 2 routers on my wifi network) or why the firmware of the router matters, so I think I may not be understanding that question.

In reviewing the motion detection settings on the camera, however, I realized that the schedule was 9-5, when it should've been 9-17.  I'll see if that helps, and update this post.

Thanks for making me look!

Possible having two routers back to back on the same network could cause problems. You might try setting up 1 router as a test with the camera and see how it goes.
