(1) enhance WiFi client signal strength. The WiFi strength is weak. I use dcs-5020L and dcs-5230L too and both connect to my WiFi router from my bedroom, but dcs-2132L does not. dcs-2132L only connects when in close proximity to my WiFi router.

1) The ability to time based Image settings. So you could customise for day and night

2) The ability to trigger multiple actions off 1 event

Can a feature be added to make the camera more easy/practical to use "stand alone"?

In "Event Setup" under "Media" and "Snap Shot". Can a choice be added where user can choose how many pictures should be saved before starting over and overwriting the first pictures. If for example 4000pictures is to be saved in a loop, where this number is added to the picture name, and when reaching 4000 it begin again with 0000 and overwrite that picture.

This feature is perfect when having a simple installation with a NAS present, and where one would NOT like to use a supervision software. Then it's simple to FTP or simply save this loop of pictures onto a known area on disc, and do not have to be worried about overflow with pictures...

"SD Card - Add a "Power User" security ..." misses their need to see the log (where motion events are logged), so such a user accessing the live recordings knows what time point to skip to for the next motion point.

Really, I suspect it better said as I noted earlier, move SD to its own tab (gaining it's own access point / user), with a (duplicated?) sub-entry (left side) of log.

If you go in as a user, for example, and try to go to log, it can't, no permission. Same for setup. e.g. No permission to setup.html is returned. A 'mediauser' would then be allowed to go to /sd.html (and once there on the left would be logs), while the normal user still would not be allowed to go to /sd.html.

I would like to see the image setup functions moved to the Live Video screen.  It's very difficult to see the result of changes and therefore very time consuming to make any.

Also, my 942L has a button on the Live Video screen to toggle day/night mode.  I'd like to see that on the Live Video screen for the 2132L as well.

Finally, I wish the motion detection interface was the same as the 942L.  On the 2132L, the squares are way too large (look at the iSpy Connect motion interface for what I think would be ideal), there should be draw/erase options and PIR options.

I would like to see quick toggle for all events or at least for both video motion tracking AND passive infrared tracking. It would work best if it were one UI page where you can link directly, without going through sub activities.

This way one could access the camera, and enable or disable the tracking. Useful when you have the camera as home guard, and you come and go.

This sort of works when you go to settings and motion detection, and toggle the video motion detection. But that part works ONLY for video motion algorithm, and not PIR. If you use PIR as the trigger, you have to enter the event setup, and disable EVERY event with PIR. Very time consuming. Even with motion tracking you have to make a couple of steps before you are at enable/disable.

The same goes for myDlink App: you have to do several steps before you can toggle the motion detection. It should be quick access item.

Other than this, it would be good to have a couple of more events available. Now it is very difficult to set SMS alert (through email service), initial email pictures (first safe pictures), FTP transmit (for more detailed safe pictures) and actual recording to SD. All this works individually, but with two events it is hard to select.

Would you please elaborate? I'm not entirely sure what these two features are providing.  :-\

1) The ability to time based Image settings. So you could customise for day and night. If I for example use one of the preset Exposure modes "Moving" which works great during the day but is useless during the night or low light conditions. It currently seems that the best exposure mode to cover both day and night is achieved with a customize profile with the full range of shutter speeds which you would think the Auto profile would do but does not.

2) The ability to trigger multiple actions off 1 event. Currently if I want to take an image and a video  using motion I need to use 2 events with are the same trigger. It would be nice if If I could use 1 event (i.e motion) to trigger both video and images so I could use the other event for something else like PIR.
