Summary: I have to admit I didn't do much to play with the picture settings but I purchased the bullet cam instead and the picture looked so much better even though they are suppose to have the same optics the dlink cloud service is the problem with this cam its unreliable ive had the service disconnected twice
Summary: I bought this camera to replace a far more expensive Panasonic outdoor security camera. I'd expected with the higher resolution I would be able to read license plates, especially from only 10 feet away - not a chance. I also need motion sensing for security notification and had high hopes for the built-in PIR sensor. But it turned out to be even more prone to false triggering than the video motion sensor.
Summary: I really wanted to like this camera. It had all of the features I was looking for checked off on the list. That may be why I'm somewhat disappointed. As a camera, it's pretty good. The night vision works pretty well. If a person comes within a reasonable distance to the camera, you'd be able to recognize them. The picture gets a little grainy when it gets very dark, but every camera does the same thing.
Summary: This camera has the distinction of being one of the few 'budget' outdoor POE cameras available. The short list of pluses and minuses: +++ POE! It works and it's convenient. +++ Outdoor! The weather sealing is pretty good. I only have concern about the speaker area. Still I would try to avoid exposing it directly to the elements. +++ No through hole mounting! Most outdoor cameras are very large or in bullet style.
Summary: A little background. The reason I bought this camera (2 of them), is to watch the front and the backyard. I had a really hard time setting up the motion detection. The Video motion detection work well during the day. But will send you false alarm as the sun moves and the cloud comes in (like sun and cloud day).
Pros: Only good for watching Video using my iPhone.
Cons: Motion detection doesn't work. Hard to setup and get the correct sensitivity.
Lens developed condensation after ONE week outside
G-Man "G-Man", Amazon
24 July 2013
Summary: I live in the humid Mid-Atlantic region, and this device was installed properly; however, within one week I noticed a haze on the HD video pic, I went outside and was completely disappointed to find condensation developing INSIDE the lens cover. This is NOT a product ready for outdoor use and based on its price, it should have lasted for years outside without problems, not just a week.
Summary: I bought 2 of these. Front door and Back door of my house is covered. There's plenty of freedom setting these cameras up. I have it recording to a network drive I have setup and it works great. Awesome picture quality and sound quality. Very easy for the initial setup, I definitely recommend this product. I dropped my FiOS Home Monitoring system because of the poor quality and it was just all around slow! I did some research and took a chance on the D-Link IP Cameras.
Summary: The 2310 works great but I had to return two defective. I have five of these. Two were out of focus and one of those with no color. After I tried many settings with no improvement I returned the cameras. The replacements worked just like my other three. I have three under eves and two in direct sun/rain. All work perfectly. The IR/night vision is so-so. I caught a guy stopping his car in the alley and getting out to steal landscaping bricks from my neighbors yard.
Summary: The camera was easy to install if you are going to access the images via Wi-Fi or the Internet (through mydlink.com account). However, I could not access images with an iphone or ipad using a 3G network, despite trying several apps, and 8 hours of tinkering with settings. There is very little troubleshooting information available, and there are 4(!
