DO NOT BUY THIS "CAMERA"!!!

Tim Rickard, Amazon
13 July 2014
  • Summary: WHAT??? You have got to be kidding me!! I spent 2-3 hours getting this piece of junk to work, and it still did not meet my most minimum expectations. Doesn't Amazon screen their vendors at all? We spend thousands every year as Amazon prime members, and it seems like we have no protection against these companies that sell "snake oil technology".

Picture is nice and wide

  • Summary: Oh what a pain in the butt to set up. Speaker does not work reliably. Picture is nice and wide, but sometimes does not connect to Dlink Lite app. It was a promising camera that did not live up to expectations.

  • Summary: I too am returning this tomorrow. I got stuck with a three hour set up when i bought another model. Already seasoned i thought a second camera would be easier to set up and i would have all d link cameras... whats another two three hours?! Two of us, two different computers, one Mac, one Windows, and two hours each and nothing . I don't care if I have three different brands in my business I will never buy another d link.

Easy to setup and decent quality

  • Summary: Good little camera. I already had 2 of the older 932L models and this one was easy to setup and add to the other ones in my account. This one does h264 compression so the streaming and storage of the video takes up less space than the older ones even though this one records in 720p and the older ones are 480(i think). My only complaint is that the night time recording quality is not that good, not sure what is going on but the IR is not as strong as the old ones.

Not worth the money. Less Features than the Non-HD version 942L

Heather A, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a D-Link 942L that I've been using since last summer. I was very happy with it so when ready to add a new camera I decided to go for the HD version. Big mistake. The picture quality is not much better, the iOS app only allows me to view at 480p which is the same as my older camera and the "advanced" setup controls lack several of the options of my old camera. I'm very disappointed and will be returning this camera for either another 942L or perhaps a DropCam.

  • Summary: Length:: 0:26 Mins Update!! I've now installed two cams in my apartment. I haven't been able to get the video capture to work, despite purchasing two micro SD cards, but we got the audio fully functioning on one of the cameras. I haven't had as many connection errors this week. The video shows the live stream on my iPad, and the camera is in the foreground. Midway through the video, I switch from black and white "night vision" to day mode/full color.

  • Summary: I have had many dlink products in the past. I also work in businesses everyday and recently "tried" to install two of theses and they are really worthless. both setup ok. I have them set to record vidoe on the card. they did that fine too for one day, then the switch to PICs only no video. tried reseting one of the two and now that unit will not attach to the wireless. reset them, firmwared them, nothing works.

An exercise in frustration

Dennis, dabs.com
27 April 2014
  • Summary: The set-up seemed to go very smoothly. But then it proved impossible to log in to the D-Link website account to view the video remotely. Every time I tried the error message said the email/password was incorrect though I knew it was not. The reset password link that was emailed only gave a "password reset page expired" error even though I had connected in less than a minute of receiving the email. I tried to update the firmware and software on the D-Link website.
