  • Recording Video - Option in SETUP > Video Clip > Trigger by to configure different start/end times for each day
  • Security - Ability to disable broadcasting of video/audio feed (i.e. to prevent potential hijacking of feed)
  • Security - Support for secure broadcasting of video/audio feed (SSL, HTTPS)

Wishlist Items Addressed by D-Link (Thank You!)

I'll need other users to validate this as a bug before adding.  :-\

I for one can't get the NTP update to work, regardless if I use one of the two
pre-defined NTP's or pick one of the well known public ones.

The Time/date is carried over when warmstarting / rebooting (through GUI)
but it is NOT when toggling the power off/on, something I just experienced
after a week away from home. Halfway through the recordings the date was back to "zero"
from a power outage.


As for feature requests...
From my previous discovery I'd like the motion algorithm to be revamped
so that your motion area doesn't affect motion senitivity and a feature add
would be to have multiple zones that could be set to different sensibilities.
Maybe overkill for a consumer product but the "professional grade" cameras
I've in my other home all have that feature and it's quite handy sometimes.

My personal findings >> http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=42004.msg177970#msg177970
If i draw a single line through the image area it's enough with ~80-85% sensitivity to detect a human
crossing that line, but if I "paint" more than 50% of the image to be my detection area I could set the
sensitivity to 99% and a herd of elephants could run through and it still won't pick up on it.
Maybe it's just my unit that's acting flaky, but to me it seems as if the motion triggering is based on
a comparison of data in the image (duh, obviously) but rather than comparing the selected area to a
static referense image, it is compared to the unselected area.

Can additional users please confirm this anomaly?  (i.e. selecting 50%+ of the image area will cause the unit not detect any motion despite the sensitivity settings?)  :-\

I would like to add a few things to the wish list...
-Ability to access the 942L's sd card via a folder
-Ability to have a snapshot taken at the same time as video is recorded.
-Ability to view thumbnails of snapshots and/or video

I have too much recorded video to go through and a thumbnail view would make things a lot easier reviewing the footage.

A more appropriate request would be to fix the unreachable camera issue. However, the question remains as to whether there really is an issue with the DCS-942L or whether the problem is router/network-based? Do other users experience this issue?
