  • DLink DCS-5010L working w snapshots - PTZ controls still needs help

    I finally managed to get my DLink DCS-5010L cam working with HS3 and HSTouch. The camera worked with the UltraNetCam plugin that utilizes separate config entries for username and passwords, but no luck with NetCam.

    I tried this setting on the cameras web configuration page: Snapshot URL Authentication. Once I disabled it I was able to see the snaps in the plugin's viewer and HSTouch. I was able to use a username and password with UltraNetCam but could not find the correct syntax to embed user/pass for NetCam into the URL.

    I have yet to sort out the PTZ controls with HSTouch. If anyone can help with that I'd appreciate it.

    Here's the working bits:
    Try to use a static address on the DLink setup page.
    Set Snapshot URL Authentication to disable
    Change the IP above to your cameras IP

      Thank you very much. Played with it most of the day but came away with pan and tilt in HSTouch. I now see that the stock HSTouch app could use a few extra buttons like Home, Scan and Zoom, but this is a good start.

      As usual the trick was in the syntax admin colon password@IP

      So if the password is blank the string for Pan and Tilt would be:

      There are 4 start commands and 4 stop commands under the HSTouch plugin. I set it up using only Start commands and the snapshot command. The above string sends a pulse of 10 steps which can be edited as desired.
