Hi everyone! I just became a recent owner of a DCS-5222L and member of the d-link forum.

I believe the few most fundamental features of a pan/tilt ip camera that needs immediate addressing are as follow. Now these are mostly included in the DCS-5222L Wishlist (By the way, I noticed that JavaLawyer miss-typed it as DNS-5222L Wishlist instead. I'm pretty sure it's not a Domain Name Server. ;) ) but I would just like to highlight and elaborate upon them here as I am eagerly awaiting for these features.

The ability to automatically track via pan and tilt to follow any moving objects that comes into view, or more commonly known as Auto Motion Tracking, is important because a person cannot be setting in front of the camera controls manually tracking objects 24/7. Given this ip camera's current ability to accurately define where motion is detected via the finer motion area grid, this feature could be easily and definitely integrated. When the moving object is finally out of range, the camera should hold that last tracked position for a few seconds before finally giving up and returning to its previous/home location or continue to cycle patrol depending on what was configured. On a side note, has anyone found any supporting application that can perform auto pan/tilt tracking? I doubt the D-ViewCam does.

Just as sound is automatically muted during camera pan/tilt and thus temporarily disabling sound detection, motion detection should automatically be disabled when the camera moves itself too.

Another limiting feature is the flexibility to send the next FTP capture or recording immediately after the previous one. Anything could happen between the current minimum 10 seconds interval that goes uncaptured. This might have something to do with uploading multiple files within the same FTP session. If that's not feasible, perhaps opening up a second session?

As for the wishlist items addressed, even with the latest firmware v1.11 build 2825 update and using IE10, I don't see the ability to specify the light level required for day/night mode transitioning. I would assume this option to be listed under Setup>Audio and Video>Day/Night Mode section but I can't find it anywhere else either. I got my latest firmware from here: https://www.mydlink.com/support

I believe this has not been added to the wishlist yet:

Video Clip for FTP and SD Recording - Recording duration based upon length of triggered event. For example, if motion stops being detected half way through recording, the recording should stop too. Dynamically varying the record duration will further optimize captured recordings to only include motion or other triggered events for as short or as long as they last. There could a setting to enforce a min and max recording time regard of how short or long the triggered event lasts.

Hi,

After having just bought this camera I'm very impressed with the quality of the image and the functionality.

However, I did have a problem with setting up email alerting using smtp which took ages to work out.

Therefore, it may be a useful addition to the software to have a "test harness" page, which could check the following:

1) Internet connectivity / Ping Facility:
       - this could confirm the camera can access the outside world (and using a test ping dlink address)
          could verify that any connectivity issues  might be password/config related...

2) A real-time monitor for thresholds:
       - Noise Detection Threshold
       - Motion Detection Threshold
       - Day / Night Conditions

       - This would help to get more accurate settings appropriate to each individual environment
         to reduce false alerts or missed alerts

       - A more advanced option of this is a learning mode where the unit would ask the user if an alert was true, or respond to a notice from the user that it missed an alert... 
       - The problem with the existing parameters is that this has no real meaning... (i.e. difference between 69 and 70)...

3) Sleep and Delay on Resume

       - Finally, when I'm in the house I put the camera in Privacy mode.
       - preferably, id like to see a Sleep mode / low power
       - When going to bed, and using the remote control to switch off privacy, a small delay before leaving the room to avoid a false alert.
       - There's nothing to be done in the morning so a first false alert is expected) unless the iOS app myDlinkin+ / Lite can activate Privacy mode before coming downstairs..

4) Auto-Motion Tracking

       - Someone else has mentioned auto-tracking which would be a very very advanced feature

One minus point

a) False Alerting when panning

       - When panning the camera via the browser, this will trigger the motion alert.
       - This is obviously because the scenery is changing, but as a thought, on a user issued command
          to pan the camera if the alert is suppressed, this would perhaps make more sense.
       - This perhaps also has an impact on auto-patrol (is such an option available)?


Hope the above make sense and I'm pleased to see that this is a well supported product with recent firmware updates

Regards
Mark

Until the day you stumble upon someone that you are manually tracking and then you have no recording of the incident!

hmm.

Manual Tracking does not trigger a "motion capture" alert - but will operate until always recording.

I'm guessing there's some potential for tweaking the actions, triggers / events and outcomes with a device.

Is it possible to increase the dwelling time limit up to 3600 seconds or more?

Thanks.

That's a big list and looking forward to seeing the next formware update on this camera.

Quick question though, is there any visibility on the development plan and if there's an expected release dates of the next firmware?

Thanks

D-Link does not publicly publish firmware release roadmaps. Please keep in mind that this is list is maintained by the forum community (ergo "wishlist") and does not necessarily reflect the functionality D-Link will choose to incorporate into future firmware releases. I can say that D-Link does review the content in this forum, including the product wishlists threads.

Since I own a 2332 too these days, I noticed this config screen in the WebGUI.



I say, dear DLink, add this one to the 5222L too please! It is absolutely is a perfect feature to control your cam and be able to switch to night mode (and have benefit of the extra light sensitivity) without activating the leds.
