Posted: 11 months ago
If your reading this, you probably just purchased the D-Link DCS932L and are looking to add it to your Vera Edge controller.
Good choice! This is a great little camera that offers day and night assurance for your home.

Setup Camera
Before you attempt to add this to the Vera, please follow the instructions that come with the camera. Once the camera is working as per the manufacture then you can attempt to follow the information below.
If you are unable to view the camera image after following the manufacture information you will not be able to proceed.
It is important that you resolve this before attempting the next step. Please refer to the D-Link support site, or You Tube for assistance.

Hi!

I've done as above when attempting to install my dlink 930L camera in my Vera plus-system. I've tried a number of different url's for this cam but at best, when I try the test-button, I'm asked to sign in with username and password. But when I try to sign in with the proper records, it blinks and then goes back and repeatedly asks me to sign in again as if incorrect. Where am I going wrong? Please help!

Regards

Fredrik from Sweden
