Title: Periodic clink sound and camera speaking?
Post by: BillHoo on July 15, 2016, 05:51:47 AM
I have a 5010L and am very satisfied with it.

Today, I had opened up the MyDlink site for my camera and had the browser in the background.  The volume was up to low white noise.  then I heard a "clink" sound.  Sorta like a spring, or a shutter, or even a metal blind being lifted and lightly dropped. 

I listened for a few more minutes to see if it happened again and it did.  But what suprised me was a second later, I heard a distinctive and loud, slightly mechanical male voice say "Signal" or "Chigol".  It was quick and abrupt like a radio that had suddenly been cut off.

I waited again and heard the same thing.  Same sound and voice.  I've timed it now and it seems to happen in roughly 2 to 5 minute intervals.

I switched to another 5010L that I have in the house and hear it there too.  Then, I switched over to a 930L that I have and got the same thing.

I think all the cameras received a firmware update yesterday.

I have no pets, and there is no TV or radio on in the house.  the cameras do not show anyone in the vicinity of the home

What Mfr and model is the main host router?
What wireless modes are you using?
How many other wireless devices do you have connected to the main host router?

As a test you might see if you can temporarily disable the microphone on the camera to see if the sounds are still hear.

If all cameras are experiencing the same thing, then I would presume there maybe some sort of interferences or something in your home possibly. Did this just resently start or to new to tell?
