Have a DIR-845L - trying to get cameras to record to NAS

(1/2) > >>

My 1st post looking for help so please bear with me.

Problem:  Trying to get DLink cameras to save video and such to a DLink NAS through a DLink router.

Hardware:  Router - DLink DIR-845L
                NAS - DLink DNS-327L
                Camera(s) - DLink DCS-945L (X 2)
                Running XP (SP 3) on a desktop and Win 7 on laptop

Ok - I am new at the home network thing - I installed the router, added the camera's, then added in NAS. (used the wizard for all and it worked fine) - did all the firmware updates. They all are DLink and are "compatible" with each other.  What I am trying to do is have the camera's record to the NAS when they detect motion - I think I have to use the FTP option on the camera setup.  I have read a bunch, tried many things, but to to avail.  I can access all through the DLink "cloud" site - they are all there - the camera's record to the SD cards fine - I just need them to send video files to my NAS as I need the storage capacity and added benefits of doing this.

So I am wondering if anyone can help me out on this one ?  Sorry if I posted in the wrong "group" - but had to start somewhere as there are 3 different devices involved - and I thing the issue MAY be the way I set up the router?

Any and ALL help would be appreciated. 

The DNS-327L has an app called My Surveillance that will enable you to monitor and record camera footage directly to the ShareCenter. Log into the web UI and navigate to Home > My Surveillance. If you are using the app for the first time, you will need to enable the app by right clicking on the icon.

. . . Also are you sure of the camera model? I'm not aware of a Cloud camera model DCS-945L.


* What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under router.
* Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
* What region are you located?

You are right - the camera is a 942 NOT 945.... in the camera set up there is an option to record events to a FTP - that's what I am trying to get it to do (thinking the NAS is a ftp/)  maybe this is where I am wrong and somehow need to set the NAS up differently ?  and not sure what part the router plays either.  Like I said, this is new to me ... and being in the retirement age group - I have to see/do/try things to get them to work - reading instructions is handy - I wish they were in plain english.  Thanks. anyway - ALL firmware has been updated on ALL units. - still the same - can not have camera "send" video to my NAS (trying to use it as a FTP)
