Actually I must say that I'm quite happy with my DCS-2132Ls (I own three of them). Compared e.g. to DCS-930L I really like the widescreen option and higher resolution. My satisfaction with the camera may relate to the fact that I'm not using the advanced features (motion detection, etc.) practically at all. Also the cameras with the latest 1.02 FW have been extremely stable. Actually two of the cameras are located in a different country, roughly 1500km away, so I cannot manipulate them manually too often  :). The biggest thing that bothers me is the DCS-2132L inability to use the same file name in FTP transfer. Also the the bad audio quality (clicking and cutting) has not been improved with the latest FW releases. But as said, I feel that this camera is almost a perfect fit to my real time video surveillance needs. And what is most important when comparing to many other camera vendors is the D-Link cloud service. My remote ISP in the other country doesn't provide public IPs, which means that the only way to access the camera is via the cloud service.

Just curious. I understand the DCS-2132L has a lot more capabilities than (for example) the DCS-933. But... can't they use the DCS-933 firmware as a base and build the DCS-2132L firmware from there? I have both cameras and the DCS-933 works well and has feature that could be useful in all the firmwares. The DCS-933 firmware has the capability to save in daily folders. You can customise the label that shows on the monitor. In the MyDlink+ app, I can change and save the motion detect areas on the fly in my DCS-933 and DCS-930 but can't do anything but look at the camera view with the DCS-2132L. I paid double the price for the DCS-2132L than the other cameras but can do less. The DCS-2132L firmware is clunky and slow compared to the DCS-933 and 930.

This was most likely a strategic decision on the part of D-Link as all of the newer high-end consumer Cloud cameras seem to adhere to this new design.

Thanks for posting your feedback. Although I don't own the DCS-2132L, my other three Cloud camera models are extraordinarily stable, which is what's most important to me. The advanced features are nice-to-haves, but not as critical as having reliable access to the cameras. Your FTP file name request is already on the wishlist, so hopefully D-Link will take that to heart.

This wishlist contains firmware suggestions provided by the forum community and may not reflect actual changes to current or future D-Link firmware releases. Below is a summary of everyone's input thus far. Please let me know if I over generalized, misrepresented, or missed anyone's concerns and I'll refresh the list with updates. Recent items are highlighted in blue.

If any items in the wishlist were fixed by the latest firmware, please post and I'll update!

If not already mentioned before, I would like the minimum delay between email notifications to be increased beyond 99 seconds -- which is the maximum size of the field.

The DCS-5222L PTZ camera has an entry labelled "Send next E-mail after" and can support up to 86400 seconds.

This would help cut down on constant notifications, and help avoid having Gmail (or other SMTP servers) temporarily block you for sending too many emails per day.

Even better would be to add deeper integration with mydlink as an additional option (SMTP, FTP, etc... and add "mydlink") and have this mydlink option send notifications to the mydlink app on mobile devices.

Also, the DCS-2132L should support the snapshot API other DLINK cameras have, so I can programmatically enable and disable motion detection snapshot notifications.

General - Full web UI support with additional browsers (i.e. Firefox, Safari, etc.)  I believe this has been fixed. Motion detection settings are now available in chrome and firefox

Audio - Persistent clicking/static [Reported by multiple owners] I believe this has been fixed.

Event Setup - Option to disable event logs I dont see this option, however I no longer get email bombed by the camera with alert logs.

Motion Detection - Option to enable/disable PIR via a check box This looks like it was done.

Motion Detection - Option to enable entire frame for motion detection area (rather than manually highlighting the grid, which is problematic with some browsers) Looks like this was done.

Those are the ones I have found to be added.

Thanks!

Dear All,
I think is a good idea add HTTP Notification on Motion Detection as Axis or Mobotix IpCam.
With HTTP Notification is possible to send the alarm to other devices as domotic station (Fibaro, Rasp with Domoticz ex.)
