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

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

Not the greatest resolution but easy to set up.
Good starter Net Cam 12/12/2013

Light Webcam For Any Job 12/12/2013
Leon C. from Memphis, TN
This camera is cool and straight to point. There is no complicated process of getting the camera to work. The is a nice small camera for any job.
Old model but does the job 12/9/2013
Nick V from Waldwick, NJ
Bought at a great price (under $30) because this is a discontinued model. Set up went without a hitch. Easily installed app on my IPhone and IPad. Daytime picture is decent but not the best. This camera has no nighttme ability but it works fine at night if you keep a low watt light on. Working for a month now, no dropouts. Would buy again.
most impressed 12/9/2013
easy to install
well worth the money
Quick and easy install 12/9/2013
Worked right out of the box, quick and easy install.
Decent WiFi Camera 12/4/2013
This is a simple and easy to install wireless camera. Although it connects to your network via wifi or cable, you still need to plug it in for power. Its not good for night viewing since it does not have additional lights nor can you pan or rotate via your PC or smart phone, its fine for what its supposed to do and a low cost. The power cable could be a bit longer.
Very quick delivery !!! 11/28/2013
I was surprised how quickly they shipped the camera out.

Tim from Anaheim, CA
This is perfect if you want to keep an eye on things at your house/business without spending hundreds of dollars for a bottom of the line dvr security system.
ismael from frederick
Nice price, easy set up but zero visibility in low light
Perfect for my need. 11/27/2013
Mar Alberto from San Francisco, California
As what I was expecting, easy installation. Although the video is not well on the dark, but that was expected on cameras without infrared. I'm happy on the items I ordered.
A good camera to have 11/27/2013
A good camera for the price. The microphone is a little disappointing, but not a major concern. You may want to check youtube for setup instructions.
Value Camera 11/27/2013
The Wi-fi Camera is very basic. But it functions nice. I can access the camera from my phone, computers. The only thing is the software doesn't work well with Mac systems, and the Java gets problems during initial setup.
Great Product! I want to buy another one! 11/25/2013
Stella from Dallas, TX
I got this camera so that I can check on my dogs when I am away from home. It was super easy to set up, took only 15 minutes or so. Now I can check on my dogs from any laptop or from my iphone. I haven't set my iPad up yet, but I will probably do that soon. The iPhone app was free, but I think the iPad app is currently a buck or so (not too bad). Also just to note, the quality of the visual feed is just ok, but considering the price, I still think it's pretty good. Oh also the sound is good, I was a little surprised it even included sound! I think this would be perfect to check on pets, or even better, babies! I would imagine parents could set it up over the crib. And if one parent works, they could stream video of the baby while at work. :)
Works Great connects to internet 11/19/2013
Pet lover from Fort Mitchell, AL
This camera works great. I am able to peek in on my pets when I am away. To the people that have had trouble connecting to the internet, check out the blogs and faq. The best I remember, there is some kind of restriction on the name of your network. I had to change the name of my home network in order to get it set up. That has been years ago and I don't remember the restrictions. I have used two different routers while I have had these cameras and had no trouble. Good luck
Very Easy to install 11/10/2013
Jeff from Melbourne FL
Within five minutes, I was up and running and had this connected and set up to monitor via the internet. Also was able to download an app on both Apple and Google for monitoring on Ipod and Android. Definitely worth the time and purchase
