Hey Sean, as of right now the only support is for still pictures. ST hasn’t opened up their video streaming code yet so I don’t know if I’d be able to get that working as well or not. They have previously mentioned that these older D-Link models will not be officially supported because they don’t have the required technology built-in.
Hey @chewymid, you have to add the device in the ‘my devices’ tab in the IDE. From there you’ll assign the custom devicetype. Once you create the device manually you can fill in the local IP, local port, username and password within your smartthings app.
Just one thing to keep in mind, currently in the code the default ‘switch’ for this device turns on/off motion detection. It does not effect the PIR sensor which has it’s own on/off button. If you turn on/off motion detection when you change modes it will not effect the PIR setting, meaning if PIR is on you will still get motion detection emails. To solve this and use both sensors I tied the two together in my personal version of the code but left this one alone so you could chose how you want to use it.
@blebson… I’m fine with manually setting it up from its own interface as I have a mapped out motion area to capture. I was wondering if its possible to have the motion sensor read and alert just like a typical motion sensor? I have 2 of these camera facing outside and I would like to have alerts trigger upon movement. I have tried pointing motion sensors at a door thats 2 feet away from a window with no luck, just doesn’t pickup… but my camera records perfectly with any motion (within my set parameters). I can modify the code to strip out the toggle buttons and sensitivity toggle as for what i’m doing they are not required. Any advice of where to start?
I haven’t tried using the photo burst app, what I’ve done is set up the automatic e-mail feature of the d-link camera (using the local settings page) where it will email me 6 snapshots when the motion detection is active and senses motion. Then I have an IFTTT recipe which sends an alert to my Android Wear watch when I get an email that’s filtered into a ‘Security Camera’ folder in my Gmail account.
You’ll have to go to the ‘My Devices’ tab in the IDE and click the ‘+ New Device’ button in the upper right hand corner. Once in there you’ll fill in all of the field and choose the custom DeviceType from the drop down list. Make sure to fill in everything except for Label (optional), Zigbee ID (not applicable), and group (you’ll set this in the Smartthings app). For Device Network ID you can put any random letters and numbers in the field, the DeviceType will overwrite this field to get the camera to work.
Once you’ve created the device, go to your smartphone app and go to the Marketplace (bottom right-most button). You will see that there is a device listed under the ‘Not Yet Configured’ section, go in there and assign the camera to a room. Then go to the device in the Home Tab (second from the left on the bottom) and click the menu button in the upper right of the device screen. Click ‘Edit Preferences’ and then fill in all of the fields.
Hopefully this clears it up for you, let me know if it works.
Ben - Good stuff. I applied it to a 930L and the image taking works fine but not the switch for motion detection. I looked at the log, and it’s returning a “file not found” when firing the command to enable or disable (Cannot open URL(/etc_ro/web/config/motion.cgi,No such file or directory). Now if I enter “http://192.168.1.101/motion.cgi” in browser it returns
Fantastic. That works. You should get a commission from ST! I’m using the email feature built into the DLink. It’s been a while since I played with the custom smartapps, but I assume since you have the motion on/off as a switch i should be able to turn it on or off with a smartapp, say if mode changes to away to turn it on. Any tips or tricks in this regard are also appreciated.
