Hi,

I recently bought this camera and had some problems with it.
I noticed that one problem is already on the wish list: the option to exclude the day/night transition from motion/sound detection.

I like to put two more items on the list:

1) Option to exclude overall brightness changes from motion detection. I find I get false positives when the light changes outside, say when the sun comes out, even if no direct sunlight is visible.

2) This might be covered by the request for a scheduled reboot option, but it seems that the camera can't re-establish wifi connection after a power failure.
My AcuRite pressure, temperature and humidity sensor does reconnect, perhaps it has a built in delay after power failure to let the router and cable modem get back up first?

Thanks

The reboot request is already listed. I doubt the brightness change can be accommodated. Motion detection operates by detecting pixel differences between adjacent frame captures. A person walking across a light source (e.g. window or lamp) within the field of view will invariably alter the pixel brightness and is a valid motion detection event. A person outside of the field of view that turns on/off a light can also be considered a valid event (e.g. burglar?). I would think that the algorithm needed to distinguish between general changes to ambient brightness versus an object moving in the field of view may add to much overhead to work in real-time.  :-\

I'll add the request nonetheless...  :-\

Thanks for putting the request on the list. A quick google search shows that researchers have been considering the issue of false positives in motion detection for quite a while, so perhaps something can be done even within the constraints of the camera's cpu.

I have another, much smaller, request. I noticed that it is not possible to indicate a time period that passes midnight when scheduling motion/sound detection e.g. a period with starting time 20:00 and ending time 05:00 is deemed invalid.

Thanks

I hope to see reboot schedule included because I saw the camera will freeze or hang or disconnected.

When this IR lamps are switching ON/OFF there is a little noise.

 The issue is that little noise is recognized as a "Sound detection".
Before the IR lamps change its state, "Sound detection" should be disabled for a few seconds.

Moreover changing IR lamps state make the image change so much, that it recognized as a "Motion detection".
Before the IR lamps change its state, "Motion detection" should be disabled for a few seconds.

When the weather is cloudy I can have 20 "false" detection mails a day

How come, there is no function to allow Override function, if i record clips to ftp servers ?

maybean option to set it to allow 10 GB and then overwrite data ?

how about a opyion to record video to ftp. with a Overwrite function, so the folder doesent take up all ftp space.  maybe overwrite if size is over 8 gb ?

Security: Would be really helpful for an ability to install a custom root and SSL certificate.

also, if optionally there is a CLI option available for such actions, it would be really useful :)

Extender mode needs the SSID name broadcast so wireless clients can connect to it when using this mode.  ::)

BTW tha't is inaccurate information. WRONG. Can type that information in manually. I have yet to see any device or software which does not permit the SSID to be typed in manually. This includes DLINK cams,

I presume D-Link chooses to not hide SSIDs as in most cases, hiding SSIDs can be found anyways. Not a feature probably really need on cameras.
