Summary: I've tried two of these units now, and neither of them work. The first wouldn't even get to where it's webserver was running and their tech support was useless. The second one will at least show a picture, but sometimes it likes to ignore web requests. Plus they seem to try to make it hard for you.
Summary: I tested a DCS-2000 out as a security camera for my small retail store. I upgraded the firmware to 1.07 and IP surveillance to 2.12. At 320x240 i can't really make out a face more than 15 ft away, but a person moving at 10 ft alway causes the video to become choppy.

Summary: Well, I chose to ignore the blatant Axis commercial someone put here as a review. I own the D-link 2000 and the Axis. The Axis is more expensive, has poorer software and is a royal pain to set up and configure.

It's very easy to setup and get the basics working - I had a little trouble figuring out how to get my Linksys router to forward requests from outside the firewall to the correct...
Summary: If you focus this just right you can do a whole lot of good for the image quality. We have it setup to send an image to an FTP server everytime someone comes to the front door of our office. We don't get a whole lot of traffic, so it works out ok.
Summary: This was setup to view my backyard a couple months ago by looking out a window from inside. I was able to watch my dogs from work or when I was on vacation. Now I have it setup inside to watch the front door.
Summary: I tested this camera, and if you don't need the built-in audio support, the AXIS 2100 Network Camera is the industry standard and a better choice. Considerable better image quality, especially at lower light conditions, and at the same price.
Summary: This camera is a bit expensive, but it serves its purpose quite well. I set this up in my kids' play room. It can serve up video and audio from within the room it is in and I am able to view that with Internet Explorer from any computer in my home.
