Easy set-up

  • Excerpt: The camera is very easy to set-up and quality and ease of operation is good. I had a Foscam before that was a good camera but extremely difficult to configure on the net and router settings. I highly recommend this D-link cam.

d link dcs-5020L

  • Excerpt: Great product, easy to install. Use it to monitor the front of the house. Liked it so much, the next day purchased on for the back yard. Easy to use with my PC, IPHONE and or IPAD.My only complaint and that is not the fault of the camera. For both cameras, they sit on a shelf close to the window.

Nice

Scott, Staples

  • Excerpt: I purchased one of these cameras for myself to watch the house when I am not at home. It has a pretty good quality image and it refreshes as fast as video if you're on a good signal. I also love the way it serves as a wifi booster, just too bad it's sitting right next to my router.

Works well for what it is

Jim R, Staples

  • Excerpt: Works well with my android systems. Not so good with Win 7 & 8 as it uses Java which does not seem to function in Win 8 as far as I have determined. Or Win 7 for that matter. I will have to take some time to see if it can be fixed.

A Solid Start

Ben S., Newegg
26 August 2014
  • Summary: We got two of these to expand the range of our wifi and look in on our kids ( < 4 years old) when we want to. Getting these two cameras setup wasn't the easiest and we kept getting errors during the process. In the end we got it working and I can look in from work.
  • Pros: Wide field of view, fairly high compatibility with viewing programs
  • Cons: Somewhat difficult to setup, slow response at times, repeater function is garbage

I love it for the price and reliability

  • Summary: Price to feature ratio is very high on this cool little camera
  • Pros: Once you have it all set the iPhone app works almost flawlessly. Signing in an seconds. Controls are easy to use and very responsive. It sees very well in the dark.
  • Cons: There is some firmware that needs to be updated, but if you have any computer knowledge, you won't have much problem. People having issues just don't know what they're doing, or got a bad egg.

Very good Camera

Richard W., Newegg
16 March 2014
  • Summary: I've played with the push notification based on sound and movement and finally just left one on - too many notifications. I haven't tried local recordings yet but that's next.
  • Pros: I like the camera. I bought two of it and the two of the 5222. I like the 5020 for ease of installation, sharpness of the picture and ability to use the features from my iPhone. the pan and tilt allows me to purchase less cameras then I currently have (ABS bought in 2009 - they are starting to di...
  • Cons: When I have to reset my wifi, I loose the cameras and have to plug one back into the router via cat 5/6, but then they all come back on.

Easy Setup

was040, Office Depot
15 February 2014
  • Excerpt: This camera was easy to configure using the MyDLink setup. It does the job I needed it to do and for the price, you can't beat it. The response time is slow however going through the supplied MyDLink web site. Video is jumpy and the camera takes a while to respond to commands.

Decent camera for the price

Kennard G., Newegg
5 February 2014
  • Summary: Camera's control response could lag, not as inutitive when operating via the mydlink website. I bought two of these cameras to monitor my home internally. Not sure if you get better control via static ip/port forwarding via dydns or no-ip. Hopefully may post on this setup, which i have not tried.
  • Pros: Camera's Infrared is pretty good. Image in the dark is very clear. Extended Network feature comes in handy for areas where there is poor wifi coverage. Using mydlink, camera is easy to setup and configure. Long power cord allows you to set this camera up pretty much wherever you wish except outdo...
  • Cons: Firmware setup may not go smoothly. You may need to download and manually install the firmware. This is not necessarily a con but keep in mind if you do turn on the extended network feature, give this this "extended network" another name. If you don't then your broadcast SSID (assuming that your ...
