Pros: Video Quality . . . After you figure out it has a manual focus by turning the physical lens on the camera the video quality is very good. Not Fuzzy around a wide perimeter margin like the fixed focus Linksys cameras. There is no remote, motorized or automatic focus.
Two deal breakers for me. Things you can do with Linksys Wireless cameras and not with the D-Link DCS-1130.
1. This camera cannot be used to view normal daylight scenes out of doors. If you aim this unit out a window or even temporarily place it outside, the image is completely washed out...almost a blank white screen. The cameras automatic exposure control is calibrated entirely for interior use only. You would normally figure you received a "defective unit" except an On-Line magazine staff writer reported the same problem.
Quote from wi-fiplanet.com review of DCS-1130
"When we pointed the camera out the window on a sunny day, we got a totally white, blown-out image. The camera only creates a decent image in moderate light."
D-Link Tech Support (by email) Says" "The camera is meant to be used for indoor viewing."
2. There is no option or method to view the streaming video without logging in with a user account. This may be fine if its strictly a private security camera but useless as an all-purpose "web cam". We currently have 4 cameras with exterior scenes and we can simply click on Internet Shortcuts to page through the 4 camera videos from any computer with a browser.Read more ›
I was able to set up the dlink wireless camera in just a few minutes and view on the internet. (Panasonic took a lot longer but instructions on the review were great help!)
At first I thought this camera was horrible because the picture was so blurry.
I figured out that I had to turn the front lens to get it clear and was impressed with the picture. :)
I have not had to mess with it since then and the camera works well.
I have motion detection setup and every time someone comes up to my front door or walks in my front yard I receive a picture in my email. I think it is very cool and the picture is pretty nice.
One thing you cannot do with this camera that you can do with the Panasonic is control movement from the internet but I am ok with that. Also, I sometimes try to connect to my camera via mydlink and the connection is broken.
I haven't had time to figure that out yet but I suspect it has something to do with comcast.
I do still receive the motion detection emails even when I cannot connect to the camera over the internet from work so I know its setup issue.
Sound is also quite clear!
I do not think it is fair for the other reviewer to give this 1 star because it doesn't work on their iphone so I am giving it 5 stars :D
I can understand the frustration they may have. Maybe you can ask dlink support for assistance?
P.S. dlink support was supportive when I had a question about ports to set up with motion detection.
They did only have to direct me to comcast support which took multiple calls and finally on third call I got a port that worked and emails from motion detection are now sent out using comcast email.
Port is 587 for comcast smtp setup.
All in all it is a pretty decent camera.
Adjustable focus ring to manually finetune display for maximum sharpness. Many IP cams don't have adjustable focus.
Camera has setup wizard to supposedly setup & view your cam from the internet using the mydlink web site without having to manually configure your router. (I am an advanced user and setup everything manually so I didn't test this)
Camera has a low light mode, where it can slow down the shutter speed in low light to obtain a brighter display. If you have fast motion during low light mode it may blur but generally this is preferable to the grainer/noisy/dimmer display without low light enabled. (The Linksys WVC80N camera that I am comparing this to does not have this low light/slow shutter feature)
Bracket is less annoying than the one on the WVC80N
Works fine with Blue Iris software, which is what I recommend instead of whatever software manufacturers include with cams.
*Must use IE* to configure if configuring manually by logging into camera. Interface does NOT work properly with Firefox (for configuring, not viewing). This is even with latest firmware on mydlink-com/download (replace the dash with a dot)
Most changes to camera settings require a reboot (such as changing video settings). This is annoying as reboot requires 45 seconds or so. However since setup is usually a one-time thing it's bearable.
Firmware is NOT on D-Link's support site where it should be (or where you are likely to look). There are NO release notes for the firmware so I don't know what's changed between the v1.00 that my cam shipped with and the current v1.Read more ›
