Set up is simple. I run a wireless home network with an old cisco-linksys wireless router and several wireless devices including several Apple Macintosh products and a Playstation 3. I was concerned at first because the "zero configuration setup" was shown to be only for d-link routers. For all other routers, you are directed to the d-link website to download a configuration wizard. You download either for mac or windows as appropriate. The mac wizard was very simple. From opening the box to looking at live video stream on my MacBook was about 15-20 minutes.
Basically, the wizard has you plug the camera into your router via the included ethernet cable. Then you plug in the power, wait for the camera to detect your network (via the wizard), log the camera into your network via the wizard, and you are pretty much done. You unplug the ethernet and have a working wireless IP camera.
IF you have a d-link router there is a "zero-configuration" option that I guess is easier. However, with the wizard it was very easy with my linksys setup. No port forwarding/dealing with IP adressing/etc is required to set up the camera. I was actually surprised by how easy it was. So setup = 5 stars.
Camera housing in constructed of questionable-quality white plastic. The camera housing is attached to the base via a swivel assembly that allows a reasonable range of rotation (about 90 degrees in any direction). The base of the camera is large enough it can sit on a flat surface, also, the base can be mounted to a wall with the two (included!) screws.
Good enough. It's not HD or super-high framerate, but for a home monitoring camera of this price range, it's pretty darn good. No complaints from me on that.
The included IR is a nice touch. It really helps at night. In complete darkness, you can see nothing with the optical camera, but turn on the IR and you can see pets/kids/whatever you want pretty well.
This is where the real problems lie, and where really the only frustration in the process occurred for me. D-links camera management software is pretty terrible. The website software I've only used a couple times (I use my Ipad, see below, to view the video feed) but seems pretty glitchy and wants to freeze up my computer. Downloading the app for my ipad was very frustrating. Here is an important note for ipad/iphone users:
DON'T DOWNLOAD THE MYDLINK+ APP FOR IPAD/PHONE. IT DOESN'T WORK. But for some reason d-link is keeping it on the app store at a price of a whopping 99 cents. So save your money and buy a candy bar. Because there is another app, the MY DLINK LITE app, that works just fine for me, and is free. Now, it's not pretty, but it works. So get the free one, and be happier.
D-link doesn't seem to be supporting their apps well, which is surprising given the number of horrid reviews on the app store.
OK, so that's pretty much it for now. Updates to come regarding the longevity of the camera, etc. Thanks for reading!
After a few months of ownership, it seems this is a rather reliable camera. I've had no trouble with it yet, it works as advertised. When I am around the home, I don't use it, to save power. When I leave, I plug it in, and it has no problems connecting to my wireless network. Still works great!
Still awesome. Works great. Only other thing to post is some loser advertiser posted in my comments about a pay web service to host your web stream. DON'T PAY FOR THAT. You don't need to. That's one of the great things about this D-Link camera, that service is free, through D-Link. So although the app may not be the best thing ever, it's OK, and your certainly don't need to pay for a webcam service to use your D-Link camera, so please ignore that comment. Thanks!
Years later, this camera still works well.
-the iPhone APP was simple to use and set up. Plug it in with an ethernet cable and follow the instructions. 5 mins tops.
-you can watch the same camera from multiple devices at the same time. (LOREX) didn't allow for that
-great night vision detail for inside a room
-nice colors and much crisper picture compared to my Lorex camera
-easy mount system that can be used as a stand
-the camera swivels around so you can point it however you want except it won't point down if it's standing on the base
-the APP offers simple controls and is easy to use
-this camera only had 480p resolution which worked great for my slow wifi signal. If you want HD I would choose something else
-the WIFI extender didn't make any sense and showed another unsecured network that you could login to without a password. I have no idea how that works but I decided to turn it off.
-I bought this camera for $30 and for the price it was a great deal but not sure I would pay $50 for it.
-does NOT have any SD card recording capability
-sound will have a high pitched static to it if you are in the same room as the camera while monitoring. I imagine its picking up some feedback or something. works great anywhere else.
1) 15 second video clips and 6-frame pics emailed to me every minute of an event that triggered the motion detector is fine as I have no interest in reviewing endless security video footage of my empty house everyday. I just want enough of the event for me to see what has happened at which point I will call the police if it was an intruder and log-on remotely from my iPhone to watch the rest of it live. While watching live video I have the option to simply press a button and take as many still pics as I want during an event; these pics are automatically saved to my iPhone or Kindle.
2) The WiFi range is very good. I have one cam setup in a detached garage more than 100 feet from a Comcast-provided router - halfway between my house and garage is a shed with another D-link camera in it with the Wifi extender mode on which allows the garage cam signal to reach my router and the video streams consistently and uninterrupted.
3) I am able to access all my cams live on 3G with my iPhone whenever I am away from home and I find this truly amazing. The video and audio is good enough quality for using these as security cameras.
4) Installation was really easy for me and I am not a computer expert.
5) I carry an old cell phone with me as well as my iPhone when away from home as this will allow me to watch live video on my iPhone while dialing 911 on my old disconnected cell phone so I can give the dispatcher the play by play of a burglar while police are en-route to my house.
6) If you already own a computer and router with WiFi then this camera is the cheapest way to set up your own security system with 24/7 alerts, videos, and pics instantly sent to your email when motion is detected in your house. I can't see how a professional security service could do any better job monitoring my home than these cameras combined with my iPhone are currently doing. I also pay NO monthly fees for my security system; most of neighbors tell me they are paying $40 per month to various security companies.
7) I can set the motion detectors on all the cameras or even turn them off remotely after I leave my house with the free D-link Lite app I downloaded to my iPhone.
8) Having had firsthand experience with my home being burglarized I can see how these cams would have immediately notified me of an intrusion, allowed me to call police and maybe even catch the burglar(s), and most importantly have limited the time in my house that the burglars had. Trust me when I say that you do not want to give burglars unlimited time in your house to search and ransack the place which is exactly what I did by not having these cameras in place beforehand -- the resulting destruction and loss in my house was devastating to come home to.
