Too many other better products with better support to waste money on this ...

  • Summary: Dlink completely hides the fact that is not support by MAC. Total scam. Too many other better products with better support to waste money on this one.

Pretty good image quality with a few quirks

Adalard Stevenson "A.", Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: For a tiny fixed-focus camera, the image quality is quite good, especially compared to the ubiquitous VGA cameras such as the DCS-942L. I have one of these pointed outside behind a window. Here are my observations: 1. The video motion support is pretty basic and suitable for indoor use only. If you point the camera out a window, you will get all sorts of false triggers from, for example, trees blowing in the wind.

POOR REVIEWS

Master Chief, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: As I read this reviews, It makes me wonder why the buyers complaint about this camera, you get what you pay for, if you wanted a high quailty Ip camera why did'nt you spend just a little more money and get GeoVision or Dahua cameras. There's a reason why these camera cost more, because the are better cameras. D-Link has always been a low end camera maker. I have both Geovision cameras and Dahua for my home and business, and highly recommend them to others.

good, but needs PoE and mic/speaker only work on IE

Jason Worley, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • Summary: I have this mounted on my front porch (protected from weather), and really wished it had Power-over-Ethernet. I found out later the DCS-2210 version of this does have PoE, wishing I had purchased that instead. I am using a dozen DCS-7010L cameras for the perimeter surveillance, and was hoping to use this camera to see, hear and talk to people at the door using my ipad or iphone.

Works well

Mike Duffy, Amazon
24 February 2013
  • Summary: I'm building a prototype, and part of the device is a wireless (Wi-Fi) camera. This was my choice, and it has worked well. Setup can be a little confusing, so I wouldn't recommend this for someone who just expects it to plug in and work. The devices comes configured for 192.168.0.20, so you'd better be comfortable with network addresses. Once you have established the network address of the device, configuring the device via the browser-based interface is easy.

Buyer Please Read and Research Before You Buy

X_man15710, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: Like another reviewer, I also didn't buy the item from Amazon's website. However I feel compelled to warn others before they buy this product.First out, it may be a little frustrating for those purchasers who have little experience with computers and networking. But the instructions aren't too bad for a novice to follow. Maybe I should start off with the good. The picture quality is good.

Incompatible with D-Link's own software

B. Lee, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: I have three other D-Link cameras (each a different model), I was looking for another that had a little better image quality. Looking over the specs this looked like a good choice so I ordered it, apparently without reading enough reviews. I received it only to find out that unlike the other three D-Link cameras this one is not supported in OSX or (even more amazingly) D-Link's own iOS app.

DCS-2230

fltundra, Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: I would just like to start off there is nothing wrong with the latest firmware 1.10 These cameras have so many setting combinations that it can cause other problems when setting up if your a novice with networking. Not plug and play! I've had mine for a year and they have been almost flawless, day and nite picture quality is excellent for a sub 500 dollar camera.

Love it, does exactly what it says it does

Lance, Amazon
14 January 2013
  • Summary: Not the best setup, but it has a web page you can run things off and setup. I didn't expect a good setup program though, it seems companies hire any Tom Dick and Harry as programmer. Beyond that though, it worked just fine with my router, but even better, it has a builtin micro flash bay that lets you directly record and take pictures to it. You can setup the camera to upload pictures or video to your network drive, or to the flash card.
