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!

DNS-5222L Wishlist

  • FTP/Email - Option for dated directories or one static directory for FTP'd snapshots
  • Motion Detection - Motion events are erroneously triggered when the camera is in patrol mode (i.e. the camera perceives the camera rotation as motion because the image is changing)
  • Motion Detection - User defined interval for snapshot frequency (e.g. 0.25, 0.33, 0.5 seconds) during a motion detection event
  • Networking - Add an indicator specifying whether the camera is connected via wired or wireless (since the camera uses the same IP address for wired and wireless connections)
  • Nite Mode - Ability to specify the light level required for transitioning from day to nite mode (current fixed mode transitions too early)
  • Patrol - Ability to schedule the patrol time (rather than rely on manual triggering)

With constant motion infront of the camera...
Here is a sample from a FTP server log file...

You can clearly see the 10 second gaps in the images time stamps.
We are getting 6 images, then there is a pause for 10 seconds before the next 6 images.
(This 10 seconds is the "Send next FTP after X seconds") setting.

It would be ok to ftp the images every X seconds, but images should be captured constantly.

Hope that makes sense.

PS: Willing to test/experiment with any beta firmware for this feature.

Okay, I see where you are going. Let's hope D-Link heeds the recommendations provided on these threads.

Wishlist:
Add remote access to SD Card contents via FTP or sftp. Have a check box to turn this functionality on or off.

Add longer video clip record times (ideally up to 60 seconds with matching interval so this can be set up for true continuous recording.

It would be cool if you can choose an audio file stored in the SD card that you can play through the audio line out!

It would be great to have a bit more detail in the log as to why a failure might occur.

I am having an issue where the storage device isn't accepting video/snapshot recordings due to running out of space but the log simply reflects a general failure.

Not sure how hard it would be to implement, but would be good to have.

Motion tracking ability would be really cool, so if someone walks across a room the camera will pan/tilt to track the subject...  :)
