Excerpt: The hardest part was getting the software to find my wireless connection. I had to keep running the set up wizard.... it took about 5 times before it brought up all the info required for seeing my wireless connection. I think there could be a little more information provided for people to know exactly what they need, to make the right choice of what you're going to use as a camera connection. The app for my Iphone, works GREAT ! SO easy to pan and tilt and zoom in !!
Excerpt: We use this camera to watch one of our twins who needed to transition from her crib to a bed at 21 months. It is amazing and easy to use. The night vision is a lifesaver, and when you move the camera it makes almost no sound. The only down side we have found is that the inital installation was a bit complicated but that may have been user error. We will definitly be purchasing another for our other kids' rooms.
Summary: I bought one DCS-501L about two months ago and love it. It's not the best out there but if you get them when Newegg has them on sale you can't go wrong. Since the first purchase I have bought 2 more, all working as advertised.
Pros: Easy setup, Day/ Night , Pan & Tilt, Remote or Local network, Wireless, One way Audio. Motion Detection & photo function.
Cons: Camera control app can hesitate (delay in camera movement), NOT 2 way audio (But stated clearly in description that its one way), Not full 1080P but I bought it knowing that.
Summary: I'm not Tech savy. I setup the camera, and could see images online, but could not get the thing to email me motion notices. About 6 weeks later it came to life. I have now emailed DLink 4 times and I can't get it to send me actual images when motion is detected. I am using the camera for security at a cottage and so far, its been pretty useless.
Excerpt: Not bad for a day/night wireless camera. Night mode has exceptional picture in the darkest of night and Day mode and zoom also work well. The only thing holding this back from 4 stars is the mobile app which might be my Sprint service provider.
