Since I bought mine in the last 6 months, assuming that they would work, and they are already outdated, can we get them to upgrade us for free?  :)

What about an 640x480 image option? Why are they always half resolution?

Are you refering to viewing video from mydlink?

Ah, sorry - I've been using this thing for 6 months but only for still images. Just discovered that the *video* settings also apply to the still images: that's a bit of a surprise for me, compared to how other devices work. But now it does exactly what I want!

cheers!

Below is a summary of everyone's input thus far. Please let me know if I over generalized, misrepresented, or missed anyone's concerns and I'll refresh the list with updates. Recent items are highlighted in blue. Items fixed in the latest firmware update are striked out.

If any items in the wishlist were fixed by the latest firmware, please post and I'll update!

DCS-930L Wishlist

  • General - Ability to save a user defined default value (ActiveX or Java) for LIVE VIDEO > Camera > FUNCTION
  • General - Add control for user language
  • General - Add more detail to status page (e.g. email enabled, ftp enabled, motion detection enabled)
  • General - Admin password length too short [FIXED!]
  • General - Daylight savings time support
  • General - Disable telnet and enable SSH for command line access
  • General - Include more segmentation for the FTP file name date/time suffix: e.g. change "DCS-930L_2011090114562601.jpg" to "DCS-930L_20110901_14562601.jpg" or "DCS-930L_2011.0901.1456.2601.jpg"
  • General - Option to include date and time stamps on captured images
  • General - Status page containing the number and type of connections currently served and actual time/operational status (Current JavaScript implementation falsely reports connection time by incrementing counter when camera is powered off)
  • General - Time Zone configuration does not function properly. When timezone is changed, the device gets confused and fails to sync the correct time
  • General - User password length too short
  • Audio - Resolve intermittent background audio clicking
  • FTP - Ability to maintain an FTP'd image history for a user defined period (e.g. 24 hours) whereby older images are automatically deleted, ensuring no more than a fixed number of images are maintained on the destination server at any given time
  • FTP - FTPS support
  • FTP - Maintain open FTP session until all images from the motion detection event are pushed to the server (rather than open/close, open/close, open/close, etc)
  • FTP - Test failure messages should display the cause of failure (e.g."server not found", "unknown username", "bad password");  the current messaging "Failed" provides little diagnostic value
  • FTP - Test message should appear on the FTP setup page following refresh (currently requires iterating through multiple pages)
  • Image - Add ability to rotate image 90 and 270 degrees (in addition to "Flip Image")
  • Motion Detection - Include a text string in the email notifications indicating the motion detection grid area(s) breached during a motion detection event
  • Motion Detection - Motion detection email on a user defined schedule
  • Motion Detection - Motion detection FTP on a schedule
  • Motion Detection - Motion detection indicator integrated in the web interface to more easily (and accurately) adjust sensitivity
  • Motion Detection - Option to FTP images immediately before and after a motion detection event (similar to the current email option)
  • Motion Detection - User defined frame capture rate for motion detection emails and FTP posts (independent of FPS)
  • Motion Detection - User defined minimal interval between motion detection FTP posts and emails (to avoid flood of emails during a prolonged motion detection event) (e.g. 1, 2, 3, 5, or 10 minutes)
  • mydlink - mydlink registration independent of device configuration wizard
  • Night Mode - Ability to adjust the light level required to trigger the transition between Day and Night Modes
  • Security - Ability to disable broadcasting of video/audio feed (i.e. to prevent potential hijacking of feed)
  • Security - Hide pre-shared key (i.e. do not display as plain text)
  • Security - Support for secure broadcasting of video/audio feed (SSL, HTTPS)
  • Video - Add "2" FPS option to the FPS drop-down menu (currently 1, 5, 7, 15, 20, 30)
  • Video - RTSP Streaming (.cgi is not the best solution for protocols like VLC)
  • Video - The "Zoom" function in the web UI should magnify the video image from the center of the frame rather than the top left corner
  • Bug - Address the ClassNotFoundException error associated with motion detection and Java (without the need for end users to employ a workaround fix)
  • [Bug] Password - Passwords created that exceed the maximum length (8 characters) are not rejected, only the first 8 characters are accepted (firmware should reject the password and generate an error message) [FIXED!]

Ok, me again. I'm using the ftp time scheduled upload to create frames for a time-lapse movie. This works nicely but the sky is strongly overexposed (i.e. often just plain white). I tried adjusting the brightness, but this appears not to affect the exposure - only the jpeg processing. This means that I don't see the clouds any better - the sky just becomes a bit more grey. I would like to be able to adjust the camera exposure. I presume it is a fixed aperture, so this would mean adjusting the exposure time. The camera obviously sets this automatically: it would be great to have a similar dropdown to the brightness/contrast controls allowing step adjustments to the exposure (-5 to +5, probably in 0.5 EV units, so -2.5 to +2.5 EV).

Not sure if the intent is already on the wish list but here is my request.

Going to ftp, motion detection automatically saves a image at a user defined level. For example, motion detected, camera then sends via ftp to storage 1 image every x seconds for x minutes then resets. This will give us a kind of live view or video recording as frames when motion is detected. Something similar to the email but I would set it to record 1 frame a second for 3 minutes giving me 240 images for one motion detection event.

Storage on a NAS is cheap!

At that rate, the request might as well be the ability to FTP video for a user defined interval following a motion detection event.  ;)

Motion Detection - Motion detection email on a user defined schedule
Motion Detection - Motion detection FTP on a schedule


Still can't believe this hasn't been implemented.  :(

Hats off to you for your continued work on this!  :)
