Suggested Improvements to mydlink Home App
« on: January 30, 2017, 08:19:26 PM »

I've recently purchased two DCH-S160 WiFi Water Sensors and installed the latest version of the mydlink Home app on my iPad. Although it took a bit of fiddling and resetting my network several times I managed to get e-mail/notification working for both sensors.

I have two suggestions to improve the mydlink Home app:

1. The app only runs in portrait mode. Great on an iPhone, but a pain on an iPad. Would be nice if it also worked in landscape mode.

2. It would be great if the app were able to demonstrate that the sensor was still working. The sensor could be automatically polled on a regular basis and the app could display the last time the sensor responded. Or the user could manually poll the sensor from the app and have it show that the sensor responded. Either way it would give the user the ability to see that the sensor was still working, had power, and was connected to the network. None of which you can currently do if the sensor is installed 200 miles away.

Many thanks,

Larry ....

mydlink home app needs almost a rewrite, I have the W215 model and is difficult to on/off.  Maybe it should provide realtime feedback if is actually connected.

Suggestion for Mydlink Home app: 
Copy the TPlink's Kasa app.  It have On/Off function at 1 minute choices.  There is a timer to on or off as well.

The app sorely needs a reboot option, both on demand and scheduled.

I agree with the reboot feature. I will pass this on too.

I think I'm always wary of breaking and entering so I've put in close to 30 Dlink devices;
here's my ask -
1. It'd be really convenient if there's a group ARM (ie turn on the alerts) function to a group of alerts; this would ease the pain of turning on individual alerts
2. After one of the updates, all of my devices lost their native names (ie names configured in the cameras); it's really annoying because then I wouldn't be able to identify the location.
3. The selection of network cameras doesn't reflect the full range of models that are available; therefore when I want to view what's happening at home now, I'd just use DViewCam.
Integration of the apps need to be smoother.

Asking for the reboot feature again. IMO the 9 series have a flaw in the current firmware (or maybe even hardware) which require a periodic reboot. IMO this is in about one to tow months time. Its not a distance to the router issue.

My 933L has never had to be rebooted. Only when I'm testing other devices or routers or doing some configurations will he see a disconnect or do I have to maybe move it. Been a solid camera for me.
