BETA Firmware - DCS-936L - Motion Detection Fix
« on: June 02, 2017, 12:18:14 PM »

D-Link has requested I pull the firmware from the forums. A new BETA firmware will be coming soon.

Please post your results here. I do not have the exact release notes but it is to test the motion detection function. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!

Having issues updating FW. Say image is damaged. I don't see a standard .bin file in the folder that was unpacked.

Please advise.

Ok,  used StuffIt Expander in OSX to  unpack the .zip file. I guess default OSX settings somehow wrongly decompiles the files. I got the new FW installed and have Motion detection enabled with default sensitivity. Will see how it goes.

I purchased the unit yesterday and this morning I enabled the Motion Alerts when I left and the alerts were endless. This afternoon I upgraded the firmware to this beta and then enabled Motion Alerts when I left. I tested and so far so good, working as expected.

Are the shifts/distortions in the video still there?   

When trying to set off the motion detection - does it work? (there were complaints were it wouldn't work in those situations).

Well, not getting any detections all all with default settings and selected detection area. A friend of mine stayed the night and we both had traversed the selected detection area and I didn't get any thing on my phone.  ???

Seems like an improvement but I had to use 90% sensitivity to have any motion detected.

I had a case number pending on this so tech support alerted me by email with firmware update file attached. They mentioned it was a beta that had been tested and seemed to work. Shoutout to Furrynutz for the mention of Stuffitexpander. I had the same issue on my Mac where it said the file was damaged. Once I unzipped with Stuffit I was able to install on all three of my 936L's with no issue.

Before the firmware update I was getting 30-40 false motion detections a day where the re-focusing of the camera would set off a detection. Since the update I have had only one false detection in the last 24 hours. It is still recording motion correctly and I am able to up the motion detection percentage from about 10% to 50% without setting off false alerts. I

Today was cloudy for the most part. The real test will be on a sunny day or a partly cloudy day - that really was a major problem before. Will report back if any changes or issues.

I haven't extensively tested but I noticed when a certain area is selected and sensitivity is set to 90% + there was one or two false alerts. I also experienced with one setting (don't remember exactly what there were) I didn't receive an alert until I was less than 3' from the camera. Yesterday with a selected detection area of about 75% of view and sensitivity set no higher than 80% alerts worked as expected. When arming, the selected area stays as the previous time it was set but the setting for Sensitivity always goes back to 30%, would be nice if this setting remained as last set.
Concerned with my experience and those of others of no alerts with some settings. In the app I would like to see an "enable" arm button on the main page to make it quicker and easier to arm. Also to get to the settings of the camera without having to go thru the Live View first. Al

I get less false alarms but I'm not getting detections even when I walking within the selected area.  To me this beta version has not solve the problem.
