Hi, I’m new here and need a guide from the pros in this forum.
I owned 2 units of DCS 942L and suits my needs except it doesn’t have the PTZ and non HD camera.

So I’m looking for PTZ and HD camera and I found it --->DCS 5222L but just few week before I decided to buy, the B version released and it comes with built-in speaker….just what I need for my cam.
Soon after I purchased, to my dismay, it’s not as good as advertised (as compared to DCS 942L)
I’ll elaborate.

Event Setup
I don’t know why DLink decided to change the event setup interface  when it has done best (to my knowledge) in DCS942L.

In DCS942L, setting up the VIDEO CLIP recording either for saving to SD Card, FTP or email is breeze and straight forward. The same goes to camera Snapshot. It’s easy.

In DCS5222L-B1. It is complex, you must specify the media & server. Looks quite ease but the horror comes in when you try to setup the event. Really confusing.

I copied exactly the same configuration in 942L into 5222LB1 for email notification but it didn’t work…really frustrating.

Recording
Then I tried to ‘Record Continuously’ to SD card. It looks ok at the beginning. But then I noticed that it only save ‘5 minutes’ events only. The 6th minutes event will overwrite the 1st minute event albeit my 32Gb SD Card has plenty of memory available.

This is really a BIG NO-NO because my purpose of having IP Cam is for surveillance of my family but I cannot get it record events for a week. Please DLink....get it fixed



Event Sorting
Not to mentioned that the event sorting is upside down (not ascending or descending) in 5222L-B1.

20140513   085339.mp4
20140513   085442.mp4


In 942L, the event is sorted in ascending order and in round figure (depicted as below)
20140513 085000.mp4

20140513 084600.jpg
20140513 084400.mp4
20140513 084400.jpg

When I downloaded the manual for DCS-5222-A ver, I noticed that their interface is the same as DCS-942L. So I presumed that those the A-ver will not having the same problem as mine (B-ver).


Built-InSpeaker
Lastly, of course the speaker (the criteria that I choosed B-ver as compared to A-ver)

It's really really bad. I can't use the speaker with Android My DLink or My Dlink+ because....it has no mic button...! Dno't know what to say...looks like half cook software by DLink.

Then I have to purchased IPCam Viewer Pro from Google PlayStore and the developer is very good in trying the best to get the speaker functioned and he made it.

But what I reallly dissapointing is the viewer can't understand what you say because the sound comes from the speaker is not clear at all (as if you're talking in the pillow)


Really sorry if this explanation will confuse some of you but this is what I’m facing right now.
I believed that there must be a workaround for this matter.


 Hope that DLink can come out with a firmware update to overcome this problem.

Really appreciate If some of other B-ver can comment and share their experiences here.

Thank you in anticipation.

Those you mentioned already made known to them especially the built-in speaker issue but it's taking them far too long to rectify the issue. I already gave up on this model. The 5222L (version 1) was far better than this newer model. Shame on them to release such junk into the market.

Log into the web UI and navigate to Add Recording > RECORDING SETTING. The Total cycling recording size determines when the oldest data will be overwritten. If you set this value at 2 TB (2,000,000 Mbtyes), then you shouldn't have any overwrite issues with the SD card. This setting is independent of the size or time of each recording and only determines how much storage space is used before overwriting commences.

Thanks ckh for your infos. it looks like that I've been lagged couple of months with those issues.

However, yesterday I tried to logon to MyDlink Lite (after so long) and noticed that the mic button... appeared...at last!

Thanks to DLink.

It all tested ok, functioned and my kids can hear my voice clearly albeit not so loud.


Thus, as far as the in-built speaker issue, I can considered as 'fixed' and can be closed.



For the rest of pending issues, I'm yet to try patching with the latest firmware....anybody has update to the latest firmware (2.01), appreciate if they can share the experience...


TQ
