D-Link Surveillance Center App (DNS-325/345)
« on: January 30, 2013, 09:21:01 AM »

D-Link Surveillance Center Package (DNS-325/345)

D-Link now offers a free app for the D-Link DNS-325 and DNS-345 that enables D-Link camera monitoring managed by and recorded within the NAS. The package has a myriad of functionality, including live monitoring on a single pane or tiled view; recording on a schedule; playback; event logs; email notifications; etc.

The Surveillance Center app can confine recording to motion detection events on a schedule.  The actual motion detection is still managed using the algorithms and/or hardware (i.e. PIR) included in each camera. When a motion detection event is triggered, the camera sends notification of the triggered event to the DNS-325/DNS-345 and the software records the event on the NAS and sends out notifications (if configured). The software can serve as workaround for the lack of motion detection on a schedule functionality on some D-Link cameras.

My first impressions (using the DNS-345) are good so far, although the app does not support Firefox.

Hi !

As I can see, this app avoid the NAS to go on sleep mode (HDs stop to spin).

Is there any solution to avoid it ?
I would like the NAS to start the HDs to spin only if needed (record of an event for example)

Thanks for help !

Are you saying that your ShareCenter HDDs constantly spin as long as the Surveillance Center app is activated? Only when recording? Please clarify.

Hi !

Sorry for double-post.

I got a DCS-932L and a DNS 325.

When surveillance center is running, and the camera is off, HDs will stop to spin after minuts.

When surveillance center is running, and the camera is on, HDs will never stop to spin even if I'm not recording.

Thanks for your help.

I already replied to the post on the DNS-325 board you previously posted....
I will need to verify the Surveillance Center behavior with my DNS-345 (and suspect the DNS-325 and DNS-345 will behave similarly).
