DCS-930L - no video from motion detection??
« on: April 03, 2011, 06:17:04 AM »

First of all, I've purchased a couple of Wifi cameras in the past, and they've always been missing something important (i.e. just returned a Cisco camera because it didn't support WPA2-AES).

So I was thrilled when I first received the DCS-930L - it was sleek, wireless setup was easy, and mydlink.com is slick as well.

But I'm afraid I've found the fatal flaw. I purchased this camera for one reason only - to figure out how mice are getting into my basement! I set up the camera where I suspect they're coming in, set up motion detection (via ftp), and then walked in front of the camera to test it.

To my surprise,  I checked the FTP folder and found dozens of STILL images! What I really need is a video file. Is there NO way to configure the camera to capture video (not still images) when motion is detected? This seems like a huge gap. The Cisco camera I returned could do this.

If it can't do this, can it can be configured to record the last X hours to a shared drive somewhere, so I can at least go back and look at recorded video?

Thanks for your help!

In order to do that, you need to install and run the D-View software on a PC.
