In the Event Setup section when you create a new event I would like to see the Periodic trigger be measured in seconds NOT minutes. With the shortest time being .5 seconds.

At connection of wired network, release/renew dhcp, turn off wi-fi if not already successfully connected.

At removal of connection, release/renew dhcp, re-turning on wi-fi (I suppose).

My cam was at home, happy on wi-fi.

I moved to a different network temporarily, where the SSID it was familiar was not available.

By no means could I find the cam to get to it to tell it to use a different wi-fi SSID. Connects / reconnects of wired network, power resets, NOTHING would let me get to the cam to redirect it as to the wired or wi-fi network it should use.

I'm not interested in carrying around a copy of the config and resetting to factory defaults wherever I go.

Alternately, pointers to instructions as to how to get at the cam, having disconnected from the current wi-fi to a new network, appreciated.

-----

Put another way ... make standard practice ... at connection of wired, turn off wi-fi, release / renew DHCP. At disconnection of wired, if wi-fi specified, try it.

And/or ... if wi-fi fails to connect, and wired present, try to use it, turning off wi-fi in the process. (?) If not present, or dhcp request fails, try wifi again. Repeat.

Add:

There is some event goofiness going on that should be sorted out.
- with recording on to sd, and motion detection events to sd, no motion detection events go to sd, only full live recording.
- with recording off, and motion detection events to sd, the sd only gets log files. no video at all. (They will go to SMB, but not to SD.)

Users able to get to SD without having admin password, and to log. (Log contains motion events, they go to sd to see them.) Preferably create a 'power user' class of user, able to administrate (or just read) the video side of the world, and not permitted to touch the network settings. [That mydlink.com has no users is ludicrous.]

*** PLEASE: For any discussion on these items, start a new thread. Keep this one clean. Final corrections can be posted, but lets keep the verbiage in between elsewhere.

Please add the requested fix for the daylight/white noise-washout issue as addressed here:

http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=52667.0

When Exposure is set to OUTDOOR.
Changing Anti-Flicker has no effect (does not reduce the white out)
Changing Exposure to Customize has no effect.

This daylight bug is confirmed on mydlink.com with a DCS-2132L having the latest firmware.
I can send a picture attachment, if requested. 
Thank you.

Correction, if I'm reading this properly:

"SD Card - Security Issue - Users may access SD card without an admin password (add security policy/group to manage SD card access"

Should be ... (currently) users may only access the SD card *WITH* the admin password. Add security ... so that 'power users' can administer sd files / see the log, without authority to change setup / network settings.

In essence ... create a new tab, 'SD', split out from setup, and include a log viewing entry on it. (Currently, non-admins cannot access setup.html, to get to / under which the sd file viewer is. A separate SD tab would follow the permissions model, and permit the desired access.)

"SD Card - Add a "Power User" security ..." misses their need to see the log (where motion events are logged), so such a user accessing the live recordings knows what time point to skip to for the next motion point.

Really, I suspect it better said as I noted earlier, move SD to its own tab (gaining it's own access point / user), with a (duplicated?) sub-entry (left side) of log.

If you go in as a user, for example, and try to go to log, it can't, no permission. Same for setup. e.g. No permission to setup.html is returned. A 'mediauser' would then be allowed to go to /sd.html (and once there on the left would be logs), while the normal user still would not be allowed to go to /sd.html.

I would like to see the image setup functions moved to the Live Video screen.  It's very difficult to see the result of changes and therefore very time consuming to make any.

Also, my 942L has a button on the Live Video screen to toggle day/night mode.  I'd like to see that on the Live Video screen for the 2132L as well.

Finally, I wish the motion detection interface was the same as the 942L.  On the 2132L, the squares are way too large (look at the iSpy Connect motion interface for what I think would be ideal), there should be draw/erase options and PIR options.

Re: DCS-2132L - Firmware Wishlist- AUDIO TROUBLE
« Reply #43 on: November 19, 2013, 07:23:09 AM »

I bought the 2132l six months ago and was very satisfied with it. It urged me to update fw every time I opened it (using mydlink lite on iphone), but I ignored this since i believe in "If it aint broken don't fix it".

Well a couple of weeks ago I figured i might try the latest fw 1.02, after all, I hade been using the oldest one, 1.006. This turned out to be extremely stupid of me. Now the audio was unhearably due to distortion of some kind. I tried adjusting all kinds of settings, lowering video quality etc without any result. Same result on dviewcam.

So i googled, found some posts, best one was this: http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?action=printpage;topic=54584.0

I tried downgrading one fw at a time (found here http://tsd.dlink.com.tw/)  , without any improvement, until I was back to 1.006, now the distortion was gone, but instead there was a clicking sound. Tried disabling the speaker function, and tada! the audio was wokring fine again.

So, since there seems to be many users having the same issue, I wonder why this isn't a big deal on the forum? Is there something I don't know? Can I use 1.02 with audio working using special settings?

I would like to see quick toggle for all events or at least for both video motion tracking AND passive infrared tracking. It would work best if it were one UI page where you can link directly, without going through sub activities.

This way one could access the camera, and enable or disable the tracking. Useful when you have the camera as home guard, and you come and go.

This sort of works when you go to settings and motion detection, and toggle the video motion detection. But that part works ONLY for video motion algorithm, and not PIR. If you use PIR as the trigger, you have to enter the event setup, and disable EVERY event with PIR. Very time consuming. Even with motion tracking you have to make a couple of steps before you are at enable/disable.

The same goes for myDlink App: you have to do several steps before you can toggle the motion detection. It should be quick access item.
--

Other than this, it would be good to have a couple of more events available. Now it is very difficult to set SMS alert (through email service), initial email pictures (first safe pictures), FTP transmit (for more detailed safe pictures) and actual recording to SD. All this works individually, but with two events it is hard to select.
