D-Link

From ZoneMinder

Jump to: navigation, search

DLink is a supplier of several IP Cameras. Not all work with ZoneMinder. DCS-1000(W) and DCS-900 - plus other D-Link IP models (This have been hit and miss, not all work with ZM. A partial list of unsupported cameras are inside).

DCS-900

DCS900.png

There are 2 versions of this camera. The "A" version is reported to work extremely well with ZoneMinder. The "B" version also works, but has a been reported to have lesser performance. I have been able to get upto 8 fps with my revision "B" camera.

Source Type: Remote 
Remote Host Name: IP Address of Camera
Remote Host Port: 80 (Default) 
Remote Host Path: /VIDEO.CGI or /IMAGE.JPEG 
(/VIDEO.CGI is the MJpeg stream, and gets higher FPS in my testing)

With version A2

Source Type: Remote 
Remote Host Name: user:pass@<IP_Address_of_Camera> (user:pass@192.168.0.5)
Remote Host Port: 80 (Default) 
Remote Host Path: VIDEO.CGI 

With the latest versions of the DCS-900 "B" there is an additional step needed in the "Options > Network" section of ZoneMinder.

ZM_NETCAM_REGEXPS Value = (no-checkmark)

DCS-910 / 920

DCS-910.jpg


Source Type: Remote 
Remote Host Name: user:pass@<IP Address of Camera>
Remote Host Port: 80 (Default) 
Remote Host Path: /VIDEO.CGI? for stream

There is the same aditional step as in DCS-900B, in the "Options > Network" section of ZoneMinder.

ZM_NETCAM_REGEXPS Value = (no-checkmark)


DCS-930L / 932L

DCS-930L.jpg


Source Type: Remote 
Remote Host Name: user:pass@<IP Address of Camera>
Remote Host Port: 80 (Default) 
Remote Host Path: /image/jpeg.cgi

Additionally MJPEG stream avaliable at: /MJPEG.CGI but next step is required for it, in the "Options > Network" section of ZoneMinder.

ZM_NETCAM_REGEXPS Value = (no-checkmark)

For the DCS-932L also works:

Remote Host Path: /video.cgi

If you want to limit the FPS just as it is set in the camera's setup -> video -> FPS, then you will need to use the video stream (video.cgi) and not the snapshot stream (/image/jpeg.cgi).

Using /mjpeg.cgi gives a lot of erros in the log files:

ERR [Invalid JPEG file structure: two SOI markers]
ERR [Unable to decode jpeg]

DCS-931L / DCS-933L

DCS931L.png

This camera can do up to 30 fps with MJPEG. (Firmware 1.01, zoneminder 1.25.0)

To set video properties on the camera, click on setup, then video. Here you can adjust settings for mjpeg quality and the frame rate. You might also want to set the default (browser) view mode to image, so that you'll get something when logging into the camera if you don't have java installed.

MJPEG settings for zoneminder:

Source Type: Remote
Remote Protocol:  HTTP
Remote Method:  Simple
Remote Host Name:  user:pass@IP Address of Camera
Remote Host Port:  80 (Default)
Remote Host Path:  /video.cgi
Colors:  24 bit
Capture width:  640
Capture Height:  480

Notes:

  1. An unknown-quality H.264 stream available at http://user:pass@ip.of.camera/dgh264.raw . Haven't worked out how to get it working in zoneminder yet.
  2. Audio is available from http://user:pass@ip.of.camera/dgaudio.cgi .

DCS-942L

Image capture works the same as 932L and /image/jpeg.cgi over HTTP. RTSP stream works with MPEG streams (/3gpp by default) RTSP H.264 streaming works if set as follows:

Source Type: ffmpeg
Source Path: rtsp://<camera ip>:554/play2.sdp

To stream the motion JPEG in 640x480:

Source Type: remote 
Protocol:HTTP 
Remote Host Name: <username>:<password>@<camera ip>
Remote Host Path: /video/mjpg.cgi?profileid=1

For 320x240 motion JPEG, substitute profileid=3. The profile IDs are configurable under the "Audio and Video" setup screen in the camera's built-in web server.

If the Zoneminder (1.25) monitor crashes every 10-30s (check your logs), set:

echo 536870912 >/proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

ZoneMinder 1.24.2 (Haven't tried earlier versions)

Tried it with just admin:@<IP Address of Camera> without password before setting camera password and it worked. Created an account with a password, tried that and it also worked.

May need /video/mjpg.cgi?profileid=3 caught that from tcpdump, suspect the numbers are resolution but don't seem to have any affect.

Seems like it's operating in factory default Profile 3, 704x480 10fps jpeg. Haven't found a way to change the Profile used yet. Could only pull about 22fps when camera was set to 30fps (mjpeg) so opted to set camera to 15fps.

RTSP works with ffmpeg as above pulling 30fps when camera set to 30fps for that Profile but could not get it working with Source Type Remote and Remote Protocol RTSP.

Looks like Audio is at /audio/ACAS.cgi but haven't done anything with that.

DCS-5010L and DCS-5020L

DCS5010L

DCS5020L


The features and firmware of both of these models are identical excepting that the DCS-5020L has a wifi repeater built in, which does not affect the video capabilities of the camera. These cameras can do up to 30 fps with MJPEG. (Firmware 1.01, zoneminder 1.25.0)

To set video properties on the camera, click on setup, then video. Here you can adjust settings for mjpeg quality and the frame rate. You might also want to set the default (browser) view mode to image, so that you'll get something when logging into the camera if you don't have java installed.

PTZ Controls can be used from within ZoneMinder using the control script linked below. Copy the script contents into a file alongside of the other ZM Control Scripts.

D-Link DCS-5020L Control Script

PTZ Settings:

Main: Type: Remote, Protocol: DCS5020L, Name: DCS5020L, Can Wake, Can Sleep, Can Reset
Move: Can Move, Can Move Diagonally, Can Move Mapped, Can Move Relative
Pan: Can Pan, Min Pan Step 1, Max Pan Step 30
Tilt: Can Tilt, Min Tilt Step 1, Max Pan Step 30
Presets: Has Presets, Number: 24, Has Home Preset

Note: Wake turns IR on, Sleep turns IR off, Reset turns IR to auto.

Settings for Control Tab:

Controllable, Control Type: DCS5020L, Control address: user:pass@ipaddress

Notes:

  1. For PTZ control, the user/pass combination must be an administrator on the camera. A regular view-only user will not work.
  2. An unknown-quality H.264 stream available at http://user:pass@ip.of.camera/dgh264.raw . Haven't worked out how to get it working in zoneminder yet.
  3. Audio is available from http://user:pass@ip.of.camera/dgaudio.cgi while the accompanying video is at http://user:pass@ip.of.camera/dgvideo.cgi
  4. The DCS-5020L script was based on the Trendnet TV-IP400W control script, available at http://www.sfpeter.com/2008/07/new-trendnet-tv-ip400w-controller-for-zoneminder-123x/ . "use ZoneMinder::Debug qw(:all);" was replaced with "use ZoneMinder::Logger qw(:all);" for zoneminder 1.25 compatibility.

DCS-6620G

DCS-6620G.jpg

Source type: Remote
Remote Host Name: IP Address of Camera
Remote Host Port: 80 (Default) or the non-default port assigned to the camera in your network
Remote host Path: /cgi-bin/video.jpg
Control script: download at www.condrau.com/download/zmcontrol-dcs6620g.pl

The control script supports all controls for this camera, but it can be used for other D-Link and Vivotek cameras as well. I verified it with DCS-6620 and Vivotek's PT7137, as the software is compatible with these 2 cameras. It should also work with other models such as the DCS-5300.

Note that I implemented a real name preset functionality, where you can set any desired name as the preset name. It is basically possible to set the presets through ZM's interface, but I prefer to do it through the cam's firmware interface, which is the default setting in the script. By changing one constant definition, you may change this behaviour. In any case still activate the "can set presets" option in ZM, after which you can assign names to each preset.

I would further recommend to update the cam's firmware. I found smoother operation in ZM after having updated the firmware, and also with the latest firmware you can set ZM_HTTP_VERSION option to 1.1. [bco]

The camera will work with Zoneminder 1.25 with some minor modifications to the template PanasonicIp.pm script. Copy file and rename to DCS6620. Changed commands are listed below. The the only tricky part was zoom. Changes nearly identically for (PZ8111) which is almost the same camera. Note difference /cgi-bin/$cmd instead of /cgi-bin/camctrl/$cmd in. For some reason the zoom ui is calling Tele and Wide functions instead of zoomConTele and zoomConWide. Use the options below Monitor

Incompatible Hardware

I know that the DCS-1110 is not compattible with ZoneMinder, as it requires ActiveX to recive the MJpeg stream.

If you know of other DLink cameras that don't work, please add them to the list!

DCS-950 not compatible. Mpeg stream. Authentication is OCX application based, not web standard authentication. JPG file generated at random url, not predictable.[1]
