I guess I have another small suggestion...

All of the other wired/wireless cameras that I've used have separate IP addresses for the wired and wireless connections.  The 5222L seems to use the same IP address.  So when I was setting it up for wireless, there was really no indication that I was using wireless instead of wired.  I was assuming that wireless wasn't working because I never saw any indication that I was on it instead of wired (of course until I tried unplugging the wired connection).

So my suggestion would be to have some sort of indicator on the status tab indicating whether you are connected wired or wireless.

No big deal for me now that I have mine all set up, but just a suggestion.  And of course the manual may tell you this, but I never read it :)

Scheduled patrol starting time.
« Reply #7 on: July 02, 2012, 06:26:14 PM »

The camera has great patrol feature, it will auto route to some preset position during patrol process.

However I cannot find any scheduled patrol time, that is, patrol process cannot be started at given time or times. can only be triggerred manually, that defeat the purpose of camera patrol recording.

Hope this can be added.

when the camera was working on the patrol mode (moving one point to another), its received image is considered motion activated, because the whole image was changing, (even it was programmed to do so), the motion active feature has a bug not able to differentiate real motion or motion due to patrol rotation, I think it is a feature bug.

This bug also applies to motion notification feature.

Re: DCS-5222L - Firmware Wishlist

I’m trying to use this camera to monitor and record activity in an office.

The current firmware 1.01 only allows me to capture portions of activity.

In the Snapshot section: ie. 6 images taken at 1 second intervals.

1 second intervals sounds fast but with a person walking across an office, you might only capture a couple images at best. Then a pause before it captures another set.

I would like to see the firmware add the ability to:
Take 3 or 4 images per second. (and ftp them)
 And keep doing this until the motion has stopped.


So allowing the interval to be set to .25, .33, .5 seconds would help

Also being able to select “continuous” based on motion. That is if the image keeps changing, keep ftping images at the rate mentioned above.

An older Dlink camera “DC-930L” with probably much less memory and slower CPU in the camera seemed to be easily keeping up with 3-4 frames per second (ftp’d)

Of course the filename would have to be extended by a character to indicate 1,2,3,4,5 (or whatever)

-------------
It might also be nice to have an option to ftp all images to a common directory instead of the drilled down date directories. (ie. don't create the yyyymmdd/hh/ directories. The filename has all that info already)

Added. . .

Although I am unsure how "continuous" based on motion differs from the motion detection already available. Either option would seem to send images during a motion detection event. Although perhaps not ideal given the always-on PC requirement, you can capture true continuous motion using video capture using D-ViewCam.
