Author Topic: URL command to get a single snapshot on 2210 2230 and 7110  (Read 59916 times)

Hi All,
I am considering some new cameras form D-Link but before I buy i'd like to make sure there is one feature I especially care about.

I need to get a single snapshot from the camera as result of just sending an URL command with the browser, of course snapshot should only be sent to authenticated/authorized users, so login should occur in some way before giving the result.

After some searches I found d-link documentations describing url commands for various camera models, but not for the ones I am considering to buy. The url command has generally this sintax:
http://<servername>/cgi-bin/video.jpg

I need to know if this command is supported for models DCS 2210 2230 and 7110
  
I'd like someone who actually tried / or so kind to try for me on his camera, describing what happens. I need to avoid the video stream thing and just get a single snapshot thus working also with smartphones not supporting activex video client and/or with narrow bandwidth.

Thank you so much for your support and buying guide.

Hi!
Thanks so much for the answer.
Where did you learn that url sintax? It's different from any other d-link camera for wich I found url cmds doc  ???
Did you authenticate through the typical authentication mask dialog box or you provided uid+pwd via url with another commmand?
Thanks again

http://<servername>/dms?nowprofileid=1          => typical authentication dialog box

http://usr:pwd@<servername>/dms?nowprofileid=1        => doesn't work with ie9 but it's working with firefox

snapshot resolution is the same as the video profile configured in audio&video settings
(nowprofileid=1   =>  videoprofile 1, nowprofileid=2   =>  videoprofile 2)

in my case i got a 1080p image

i found that url with firefox when i was trying to found a HTTP streaming url which match the video profile i set up

For DCS-2230 you have to use fwg URL command:

http://ipcamaddress:port/image/jpeg.cgi

Hi Joe, thank you ;-)
Hos did you discover this syntax? I see every model has different syntax, is there a D-link site/doc that explain url commands syntax?
Thank you

I guess apart from PoE/Wan difference the 2210 and 2230 are pretty much the same product

Hi Joe Public !!

With your DCS-2230 can you get a H264 HTTP stream ? (in my case video1.mjpg is mjpg bad quality instead of H264 good quality video profile 1)

Thanks

Hi guys, forgot to ask: is there a way to attach these ipcams (2210&2230) to a standard photo camera tripod?
Thanks

These are useful suggestions, and they are not documented anywhere, as far as I know. I have seen the URL command document for other cameras, and I can confirm that it does not apply to the DCS-2230.

The command I would most like to have is the ability to turn a programmed event on or off. For example, I would like use a smartphone to turn on motion detected recording when I leave the house, and turn it off when I return. If anyone knows a way to do this, I would like to hear it. At this point, the best I can do is http://username:password@ipcamaddress:port.setup.htm.

Is that ":port.setup.htm" ending correct? I would think the ":port#/setup.htm" ending would be a more typical syntax.

Hi !

With my DCS-2210 i could get a snapshot jpg with login required

with that URL : http://<servername>/dms?nowprofileid=1

Where would that snapshot be stored? But in any case, I think most cam viewer apps have a snapshot taking button and it seems to me that they are simpler to use than this URL method.
