I write this post is related to ASUS ORDER CUSTOMERS TO PROVIDE VIDEO PROOF ON A CRASH ISSUE THEY HAVE REPRODUCE THAT HAPPENS ON THEM on 1st RMA: From 2017/5/15 till Now section in Asus RT-AC1200G+ Random Reboots Automatically.
Here I use DCS-930L Wireless N Network Camera from D-Link and AS-5102T from Asustor as an example to setup surveillance system and keep track of the light on Asus RT-AC1200G+. I will update with other models in the future.
This is a sink cost owning Asus products when you ask for repair.
If you are using a different device or plan to buy, it’s better to check Asustor Compatibility – IP Camera before begin.
Setup D-Link DCS-930L
work with Surveillance Center 2.6 on Asustor
Install and Setup
Now, here is the tricky part. Download and install ASCNPComp.pkg which pops up when you launch Surveillance Center. Restart or launch Safari to open Surveillance Center. For Windows, use Internet Explorer instead. You won’t be able to setup Surveillance Center neither with FireFox nor Chrome. because of incompatibility.
Once you launch Surveillance Center without pop-up, add your camera in [Settings] tab. I choose to enter information manually
In [Live View] tab of Surveillance Center, select and click on video record icon button to begin. Click again to stop. You may also use AiSecure which is an app designer for mobile/tablets to control.
If you want to fine tune any recording parameters, it is accessible in [Camera] tab of Edit dialog on selected camera.
For your reference, I choose to disable audio, 640×480 in Resolution, 5 for Frame Rate, and 4 for Quality. It takes up 150MB for every 30 minutes. In other words, it takes up about 5GB for 16 hours work every day.
