Green Light Blinking Occasionally
« on: August 22, 2016, 10:54:47 AM »

Hi,

I've had the cameras for several years.

As we know, the green light is solid during normal use.  On the occasions where I have used my phone or tablet to check on the house, the green light blinks.

One of the ways you can tell if someone is watching - one camera has been blinking during the day from time to time.

- do I have to be worried that my account at MyDlink is compromised?

thanks

I looked in the user manual and there is nothing about blinking green light meaning.
There might be information in the cameras log file about who has connected.  Read the user manual for logging into the f/w.

My 2330l flash green when you walk in front of them.

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your DCS? Look at the sticker behind or under the camera.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DCSs web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

What Mfr and model is the main host router?
What wireless modes are you using?
How many other wireless devices do you have connected to the main host router?
  • Any 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz cordless house phones or WiFi APs near by that maybe causing interferences?
  • Any other WiFi routers in the area that maybe causing interferences? Link> Use a WiFi Scanner to find out. How many?

I recommend setting a static IP address ON the cameras outside of the main host routers default DHCP IP address pool as a troubleshooting step: 192.168.#.10 and .11  DHCP

Test cameras with uPnP and uPnP Port Forwarding both enabled on ALL cameras: DCS Cloud (L) Series Camera Configuration and Mydlink.com
