D-Link DCS-942L :: How To Setup Receiving Email Snapshots And Video Clips

Aug 19, 2012

the 942L is up and running but I ain't getting no email snapshots nor video clips.I think the menu for setting up the "Video Clip" and "Snapshot" is severely lacking info for users like myself; what to type in the smtp field, the sender or recipient email fields, and especially not username and password. Do I put my email username and password there, or my MyDlink login email and password?

D-Link DCS-942L :: Not Trigger Motion When Configured To Send Snapshots Over Email

Nov 9, 2011

On my new 942l, after 5 days of usage and tinkering with various settings, I cannot get the camera to obey the trigger=motion when configured to send snapshots over email. It does work when configured to send snapshots over email with trigger=always.Interesting enough the trigger=motion works just fine to upload snapshots to FTP. Yes, it uploads the pictures correcty on FTP detecting correctly movements, but it would not send those over email. To me it looks like a bug in the firmware that I have now a 100% repro.Are there any logs you want me to send to you for debugging?And : Is there a known workaround I can apply (reboot, resetup etc)?

Detailed description of the problem:I have setup the camera to upload snapshots to FTP AND send them over email for trigger=motion.This is what works : the snapshots are nicely uploaded on FTP , but not sent over email.Interesting : if I set trigger=always, snapshots will both be uploaded to FTP and sent over email. The moment I switch back to trigger=motion they go only to FTP and not over email.Even more interesting : the video clips work correctly with either email or FTP for trigger=motion.

What could cause this?The email (account, port, password) and FTP settings are definitely not a problem since I see pictures/videos in email or FTP with trigger=always.The motion settings are not a problem either since snapshots upload correctly on FTP when movements are detected.What it apears to be is the software is not reading or obeying correctly a certain combination of settings.I'm wondering if it has to do with the fact that for video clips the "email" and "ftp" are exclusive, but for snapshots they are allowed simultaneously. And somehow the logics get mixed up causing certain combinations of settings to now act out?

What else I tried?I tried many reboots, unplug followed by plug back in and so on.I tried saving and restoring the settings to/from a file hoping that will "reset" something.And I tried many combinations of settings, including changing the order I set and unset hoping a different code path that works will be hit.I did not try a restore to factory defaults since I installed the camera in a hard to reach place and if I restore to factory defaults i need to take it down connect it to a cable in order to redo the wifi settings.

D-Link DCS-942L :: Video Clip Notification (MP4 Instead Of AVI)?

Feb 11, 2012

Can the DCS-942L be configured to send the "Video Clip Notification" email video attachments as MP4 as opposed to AVI?  The iPhone can not play AVI files, so I'm forced to use the snapshot feature which misses a lot of the motion.  I have a Linksys WVC80N that allows me to send video email attachments in MP4 format that works great, but I would like to have this ability on my two D-link DCS-942L cameras as well.  If there is no way to send MP4 video email attachments... is this something that could be added as part of a firmware upgrade?

D-Link DCS-942L :: Static IP Setup Losing Its IP Address

Jul 1, 2012

I have 3 Dcs-3420's on the same network same static ip setup and they never have issues.  Im testing 1 942L, I've upgraded firmware to1.11, but periodically the camera loses its ip address which is weird because it is set static.  My wireless is set to Mac address security.  Now camera is outside in a shaded area, over night the camera worked all night, this morning it has reset three times.  Additionally, each time it resets/losses ip address it also loses the manually set time.

D-Link DCS-942L :: Stuck On Saving When Changing Setup Settings

Jan 23, 2013

When I change a setup setting and click save settings, most of the time it gets stuck on the "saving..." notification window and eventually I get a "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page" notification.  However I have found that if I repeatedly try it eventually it will accept the change.  This never happens using the wizards only making manual changes.  I am running the camera with a Wi-Fi connection.  I am not sure this is a router or camera firmware bug (running V1.12)

D-Link DCS-942L :: 942L - Gaps In Continuous Recording

Mar 10, 2012

I have my 942L set up for continuous recording. When I look at the files, the camera will record between 20 and 55 seconds, end that file and start another. The next file then starts between a few seconds and as much as 40 seconds later leaving a gap in the video recoding. The file sizes are all different and the amount of record time is different for each file.

Also, about 80% of the time, the time increments a few seconds on a playback and then stops updating even though the video is longer.

D-Link DIR-615 :: Laptop Setup To Connect To Exchange Server For Email

Apr 12, 2009

I'm hosting my email on an Exchange Server 2003 box and have my laptop (Vista Ultimate 32 bit) setup to connect to the exchange server for my email. This works fine through a LinkSys RV042 in one location and a LinkSys WRT54GC in another, but fails through the DIR-615 B2 (2.24 firmware) at home. I'm guessing it's blocking something needed for the MAPI connection.

As DCS-942L IP cam is compatible with "NVSCGI APIs" (search this string on a search engine and you will find some useful PDF docs), many features of this IP Cam may be enabled or disabled using any web browsers, for example we can manage the motion detect.

D-link Dcs-942l :: Keeps Going Offline Wifi?

Apr 19, 2012

I have 3 DCS cameras on my network all setup WiFi

2 are DCS-932L and 1 DCS-942L

The DCS942 (which is right near but facing the other direction) is about 2 meters away from one of the 932's but the 942 keeps going offline - it comes back on and off probably 4-5 time during a 24hr period.

This is most frustrating - it would look like Wifi signal strength could be the issue but the other 932 right near it doesn't have this issue?

D-Link DCS-942L :: Unable To Reset It

Jun 24, 2012

I initially set it up for static IP, which was a mistake for reasons I probably don't need to go into here.  Having recognized my mistake, I've been trying to hard reset it so I can convince it to acquire its IP address by DHCP, but each time I reset it and return to the "First, select your camera" screen in the setup wizard, I'm faced with a single choice: the device as I first set it up for static IP.  I don't seem to be able to convince it to give up that erroneous static IP address.I have read the FAQ section on hard reset.  I've held down the reset button for a lot longer than 6 seconds while the cam was connected to power and ethernet, and I've watched it go through the sequence of flashing blue reset and WPS lights until it settles down, but this doesn't change the situation, evidently.
