Problem setting it up. 11/2/2014
Nick from Hamilton N.J.
Not easy to set up and/or register it.
not bad for $ 11/1/2014
I have no complaints. It works well for watching our dog while away.
Good camera, poor software 10/15/2014
Ryan from Omaha, NE
If you are going to use this camera with some 3rd party software, like BlueIris on a PC, or ipCamViewer on an Android phone, it's a great choice.
But if you plan on logging into the camera using your web browser, be prepared for a poor experience. I never use it that way though, I use other software. The picture is actually very good. I've purchased additional ones because that work so great.
Wireless Camera 10/9/2014
David Roper from Blythewood SC
Well,, I bought it because I thought it would connect to my wireless home system. And maybe it would if i had owned the right router.
Alas, i own an old Belkin g router and I haven't gotten this camera to connect as easy as i wished.
It's probably my fault but it not plug and play for me. I will keep trying. It's probably MY FAULT.
Excellent camera & easy setup 10/8/2014
John Wortley from Downingtown, PA
I purchased this camera because I couldn't pass up the fantastic price. Right out of the box it worked perfectly once it was setup with my WiFi router. The auto setup was amazing! Really could it be much simpler? And I guess it could have been if I had the D-Link Cloud Router! Besides being able to view the camera from my PC, I also setup the iPhone "mydlink lite" free App and I able to view the camera via local WiFi or from my 4G/LTE connection. Was amazed at the realtime viewing & listening.
DLink Monitors 10/8/2014
Pete from Glenville, NY
Units are good for monitoring. Have not yet linked using my smart phone but the installation and application seem to be straight forward and easy to set up.
Fantastic Product! 10/6/2014
LKSF from Waterford, VA
This product works wonderfully and very easily. It is quite portable so it can be used anywhere. You can add to an existing system very easily. I would recommend this to anyone. You will definitely be happy with your D-Link!
Works as described. Easy Setup! 10/6/2014
Don't have a WPS-capable router so had to install and setup using Mac OSX software. Worked perfectly. Once connected to my WiFi network was able to place anywhere in the house. Then used Synology's Surveillance Station to setup motion detection monitoring and recording. Simple integration.
Only "issue" is that to view the camera or livestream over mydlink, you have to have a specific version of Java installed. For whatever reason, this is not the version of Java I have installed by default on my Mac OSX so I was unable to view live streaming from the dlink website or mydlink. However, the Synology app (DS Cam) allows me to view the live stream.
DLink Cloud Camera don't work. 10/3/2014
WL from Orange, CT
Ordered 2-cloud cameras. Did whatever the instructions & troubleshooting explained, yet none of the cameras working. Tried to contact them by email for more than a week now with no response. With such a bad customer service, I would not recommend buying their products.
gr8 camera 10/2/2014
easy setup, clear picture, sound ok
Cheap Basic Camera 10/1/2014
Rob V from Lancaster, CA
I got this camera for $21 including shipping and Tax. I wouldn't pay much more for it. It is a very basic camera and easy to set up. The resolution quality is pretty low. I am using it in my garage to monitor when the garage door is open while we are away. The quality compares to those horrible gas station video clips you see on the news that you can never tell who the criminal is. hah. But for the price, good deal! If you just need a basic monitoring camera, this is it.
Good basic wireless network camera 9/24/2014
Definitely worth the sale price I got it for. However, due to the low resolution (640x480), video quality isn't great when you login remotely from your iPhone app. Also, the app can't save your username and pw, so you have to enter them every few hours after the program logs out. Finally, if D-Link ever goes out of business or shuts down the website, then you will no longer be able to login remotely to the camera.
Good entry-level consumer security camera 8/25/2014
Keith from Chattanooga, TN
Super-easy setup if you're willing to accept default settings. A little more complicated if you wish to adjust some things and maximize to 640x480 res. I use the "mydlink Lite" app on my iOS devices to view the cameras, and while the video looks fine, I have not yet been able to get a successful audio stream...just loud static.
Overall, at the $20/ea that I paid for my 4 cameras, I feel I got a good value.
easy to set up, descent picture quality 8/23/2014
NimEluv from Houston, TX
doesn't work in the dark & picture isn't great however it works. the mic picks up a lot of noise & makes it unable.
Good for adding an inside layer of security.
field of view 8/22/2014
The field of view is limited not the cameras fault but mine for not checking before I purchased. The picture is excellent and works even with low light.
Slow to track 8/18/2014
Sean S from Flagstaff AZ
The software is slow to update images. About a 10 second delay. Phone app is even slower
Good starter camera 8/17/2014
I'd say this is a nice starter camera. It can cover an area that is always well lit and you don't need a ton of detail. As this camera can't see in the dark and it does not real sharp.
Good for the Price 7/16/2014
I have other wireless web cams and they are easier to set up and manage connection to... It may be my network but these DO work and the set up wasn't the end of the world.
Great value 7/16/2014
Charity from Las Vegas, Nv
Very nice little ip camera
Tom from Las Vegas, Nv
Great product for the price. Very easy to use
Great camera for the money 3/28/2014
Ashley from Portland, OR
I purchased this camera, and I am extremely impressed. The camera has decent quality, and the My D-Link software is very robust and offers tons of options for surveillance. Setting the camera up on my network was a breeze. The motion detection works great and it's fairly simple to set up auto-notification of events. The power cord could be longer, but overall a fantastic deal. I plan on purchasing more to set up around the house.
Great little device to keep an eye on things 3/28/2014
Raphael from Upper Saddle River, NJ
I knew this was the simple solution to adding some security to a home or workplace without requiring a computer or wasting its processing power. With built-in email and FTP uploading features, this self-contained device does it all. I only wished that it also utilized Flash or not even require a browser plug-in instead of Java or ActiveX in order to view streaming video from their web portal page.
You get what you paid for. 3/28/2014
Curtis from Chicago, IL
Quality of image is poor. You can't even make out a person's face. It's practically unusable in low lights. If I could return without paying shipping back, I would.
Great Product and Perfect for Starter to Mid Level 3/27/2014
My first Network Camera and liking the D-Link DCS-930L so far. Followed the instructions in quick start guide and had it up and running less than 10 minutes. Quality is really good for the price of network camera.
There is some static in audio but can still hear sounds/words etc fine...
I had to change the resolution to 640 X 480 and picture quality improved v/s the default and pleased with what I see on my iphone and computer...may buy few more of these and will have full house monitoring system in less than $100 and within my budget and no monthly fees
Great camera for what it's worth 3/26/2014
You get what you pay for with DCS-930L. It's a great, entry level security camera for pets. Motion detection isn't very responsive if that's a key feature you need.
Basic Camera, for a Low Price 3/26/2014
Works okay. Could not find a way to get text-alerts, as the online video states.
For the price wow 3/25/2014
Mike from NYC
If your looking for top of the line go else where if you want a camera basic to do the job average. Great item
Work as described 2/28/2014
Chowmac from San Antonio, TX
The CD is no use. Just download the software from the internet. Very easy to operate thereafter. Small footprint makes it good for installing between my storm door and my front door. Would like the power cable to be longer.
great camera for iphone 2/16/2014
Mike from columbus OH
hooked up a few cameras and was able to get them all on the same app/iphone

Security Made Easy 2/9/2014
Gary Hebert from Vallejo, California
Fantastic product for monitoring elderly family member. I can monitor activity from my phone. Plus have it send email with photos with motion detection feature. My life has been made more simple and provides ease in caring for family member.
Just as expected from reading other reviews 2/9/2014
Once the room gets a LITTLE dark it no longer sends out an image, but I already knew that. Image is not that good, but I already knew that. Sound received is full of static, very annoying, but I already knew that. The free iPhone app works really well, even over 3G on my iPhone 4, I did not know this going in so that was a nice surprise. Overall, for 2 Andrew Jacksons shipped, a great value for basic needs.
Good a a lit room monitor 2/6/2014
The item was easy to set up using the provided disk, and a computer (need computer). the picture is 240p and a bit grainy and choppy when veiwing from outside the wifi network it is on. But for the price it is good. The sound has a constant back ground noise, I assume is from the unit itself through the power cord. Guessing they have a bit of work to do on sound. This unit also does not work in the dark, or very dim lit areas. Also a video recording feature in the program wouldv'e been nice.
Remote camera 2/5/2014
Roger from Stamford, CT
Nice and easy setup. Great product at a matching price.
Great basic daytime camera 1/31/2014
Works out of the box, just plug and play, easy setup if wired, didn't need to try wireless, the free app works well to monitor over the net as well.
Great camera 1/29/2014
I now have 5 of these little guys and love them!
Great value for watching my small home & pets while I'm out.
easy simple gadget 1/29/2014
Carlo from Mercer Island WA
very easy to set up, nice gadget.
it needs good lighting, and of course cannot swing, but I knew that (and that is included in the very cheap price). good value for your money.
Great product 1/9/2014
This camera is compact and simple to setup. Great product
Camera Doesn't Work 1/7/2014
Norman Chandler from Denver, Colorado
I purchased the camera for Christmas. It says that it is simple to get the camera to work with an existing router and modem. I have tried and tried to get it to work and it doesn't. I don't think that the problem is in the camera but rather in the software that DLink provides. And, to make matters worse, there is no help available from DLink. Basically, I wasted my $35 and would urge others not to purchase this item. I need to try to return it to Buy.com.
It works, but could be better 1/7/2014
Rey M from Apache Jct, AZ
Same thing as other reviewers posted, narrow field of view and when the lighting is poor, the picture is black!
My cheap pan/tilt EasyN ($10 more) works much better.
Narrow field of View 1/6/2014
Mike from Whittier, CA
It's a nice small unit. Not tiny but small. Easy to use. I had a little trouble with the Mac. It had a missing question on the install. The Phone support was very helpful. My biggest con on this camera is the field of view. You can't put it in a corner of a room and see the room, but for the price it's a nice little camera. I am using it to monitor my Garage door. It would be nice if it had night vision, but it is an inexpensive camera.
Laura from McDonough Ga
Excellent ship, product seems really cool, slight issues with setting up online and getting verification email. Still not able to get it to be motion activated and sending emails.
Great security camera 12/27/2013
Quality is excellent if lighting is right. I use it for a dogy cam and it work great.
Great value for the cost 12/23/2013
Chris Sos. from Crystal Lake, IL
The camera is nice and small (unobtrusive) and extremely simple to set up. A simple Ethernet jack and power cord make it quick and easy. There is a nice LED light on the front to confirm setup. The picture quality is ok (not great) but for the price, very good. I use it to keep an eye on the house (and dog) from my iPhone & iPad while we are out. IOS app was easy once I created the online account. Be sure you download and install the correct software for your exact model (I didn't at first).
D-Link DCS-930L 12/20/2013
Bob from Dresher, PA
Not the greatest resolution but easy to set up.
