Motion Detection doesn't seem to work on the 936L
« on: October 10, 2017, 10:03:17 AM »

Hi, I can't seem to get motion detection to work on the 936L?  The box says it will detect motion.

Link>Welcome!

  • 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?

D-Link is aware of this issue and is working on it. We had a beta however it didn't seem to resolve it so it was pulled.

I keep on it as well. Please be patient.

Pointing out a window? Make sure the area behind the glass does not have any glare or lighting changes. This can cause false detections.

Make sure the sensitivity is between 75-90%.

I found this camera detects motion the best between 5 -15 feet. Anything closer or farther I got mixed results.

Have you set the sensitivity to %75-90?

Seems like you may need a 960L if your trying to get more distance motion detection's.

I have a 960L in my front living room window. Picks up vehicles all the time.

I tested the distance by walking past it, about 20' in the day time.  tried sensitivity  75% & 90% . it seems to work sometimes, pick someone up at 50' the other day and today not past 20'. it's sent 50 email today and nothing on the video. i guess i will try a different one, maybe the 960l.

I've put my 936L where my 960L was and set for 70%. Set 3 different detection spots only. I'll check on what it does.

Well, I can say this, after putting the 936L in my front living room window, it's been getting a lot of false motion detections. Mostly due to cloud and sun. Past few days have seen a lot of cloud and sun weather changing and the camera is pick up on these actions. I just turned down the sensitivity fro 70 to 60 and still getting some false detections. A car just passed by and it didn't pick it out.  ::)  I say the camera is about 20 feet from street. Probably not going to get anything at this distance.
