1) FTP debug/transfer log for TEST button - useful to debug connection problems.
2) EMAIL debug/transfer log for TEST button - useful to debug connection problems.
3) Ability to "ping" IP address for test purposes
4) Note: Ping/FTP/MAIL debug log should show name resolution process for debug purposes.

5) Means to disable all security for pan/tilt - ie: no login required for basic video
6) Remove/replace JAVA with something else!!! JAVA is blocked for many users {corporate rules are painful}

Currently trying to debug/make these FTP & MAIL work - I click "TEST" and ... I have no means to tell why it is not working. If I had access to an network analyzer - then I could watch the transfer actually occur and see errors [I should not have to break out WireShark! Due to routing rules I cannot sniff all packets, and I don't have wireshark for WIFI!]

A log something like below would be sufficient and very helpful - There is nothing today.
Camera sets at "Testing ...."  no idea what is going on.
No means to cancel, no means to retry ... no clue what is going on. This is bad.

But - I know FTP server is working just fine I can do this from command line

C:\>ftp 192.168.1.10
Connected to 192.168.1.10.
220 (vsFTPd 2.2.2)
User (192.168.1.10:(none)): critter_cam
331 Please specify the password.
Password: **********
230 Login successful.
ftp> cd /var/www/html/critters
250 Directory successfully changed.

Using Firmware version: 1.03

AVI files from motion detection (ftp upload) get corrupted on both of my DCS-5020L cameras after few days of working.

The RIFF AVI header is missing and its just a garbage in AVIs.

JPEGs though are still recorded properly - never had issues with those.
Rebooting camera fixes the issue (good RIFF header and play-able AVIs) but only for few days.
This is rather annoying firmware bug it seems to me :(

Please do not suggest checking my codecs or players... its not that kind of issue.

cheers,
Myr

I would like another functionality to the wishlist:
o  Today, email notification interval is taken into account only if the email is sent : ALWAYS
    It would be really beneficial to have a possibility to also specify an email interval for Sound/Motion detection

thanks

I don't understand #5.  I highly doubt #6 will ever happen since D-Link's entire camera product line leverages the same/similar Java code.

What is the firmware wishlist request?

Sorry that it wasn't clear. The wishlist requests are:
 
1) Fix the corrupt AVI issue. So it doesn't record garbage after few days of working fine. Have to soft-reboot my both cameras for that pretty much once of twice a week.

2) If #1 is hard to fix - please include "scheduled reboot" feature.
So I could set it up to reboot cameras, say, daily at midnight and that will hopefully fix the corrupt AVI issue

Much appreciated!

How about Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) and Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) support? Then I can manage ALL of my cameras from a single user interface.

Thanks for listening...

Are other users experiencing this issue? i.e. camera saves corrupt AVI files after a few days of continuous operation?

"Reboot on a schedule" is already on the  firmware wishlist...

Hi,

I recently bought this camera and had some problems with it.
I noticed that one problem is already on the wish list: the option to exclude the day/night transition from motion/sound detection.

I like to put two more items on the list:

1) Option to exclude overall brightness changes from motion detection. I find I get false positives when the light changes outside, say when the sun comes out, even if no direct sunlight is visible.

2) This might be covered by the request for a scheduled reboot option, but it seems that the camera can't re-establish wifi connection after a power failure.
My AcuRite pressure, temperature and humidity sensor does reconnect, perhaps it has a built in delay after power failure to let the router and cable modem get back up first?

Thanks
