Add the ability to connect to an NTP server or put a button on the front screen which is visible if the camera date/time is more than a few minutes out from that of the viewing device.  A baby camera needs to be moved around the house as the child is moved, so the camera has to be turned off each time.  It takes 30 seconds to synchronize the camera with an android device.

After posting the request for NTP functionality  I noticed that in the latest firmware update there was

New Feature] Enable NTP sync function with server “ntp1.dlink.com” as default

I am on the latest firmware and this doesn't work at the moment.  Obviously someone at DLink has thought about this but like many other features it hasn't actually been translated into reliable working code. 

My router (BT Home Hub 3a) does have a firewall but it does not stop NTP requests outbound.
I have tested ntp1.dlink.com using NTPTool from my home network which does show it as a valid NTP server.

This points to it being an issue on the camera itself.

Did you test an alternate NTP server on the DCS-825L (if that's an option)?

I want to be able to lock the camera from the cloud.
If I give the login to anyone, after that they can always login och watch, should be something to lock the camera time to time.

Also speed up the app, itīs horrible.

Where are you looking to lock the camera from (what UI)? Since the only access is through the mobile app, if the mobile app is cutoff from the DCS-825L then how would you get back on (i.e. unlock)?

Hi javaLawyer,

there are not any options referring to the NTP settings in the android app.  Have just checked the mydlink site / my devices and nothing is available in the settings to change the NTP server.  Maybe the ipad version has something!

Maybe Iīm wrong , but if i register the camera to the Cloud, the you allways can access the camera remotly.
So if I would like to let my grandparents see my child, I give them my login to the cloud, then they can access this all the time thru the Dlink baby app (and maybe I donīt whant this)
Therefor I whould like to have, for example a checkbox "broadcast throu cloud".
