Summary: I did not like this camera. I bought and installed 3 DCS-5222L cameras. Apparently they make an OLDER version (A) and a NEWER version (B) but there is no way to tell which version you are getting. My initial 3 cameras are B. This one is A. The setup, screens, and operations are entirely different.
Summary: I ordered this to use as a puppy cam to watch my dogs to make sure they are not getting into trouble. This is a complete POS. I unpacked it got it connected the thing timed out at least 5 times trying to "test internet".
Summary: Low resolution. This company doesn't have their software worked out. It should still be in beta testing for another year or so. I'm guessing all the engineers are too busy throwing nerf toys around the office and cashing in on stock options to focus on getting this right.
Return bad camera only if you have a day to spare.

Summary: The camera worked fine for three months and then one color channel went out. I'm not so frustrated with the poor quality of the product as I am with the run-around that I got when I tried to get it replaced. It took an hour on the phone with reloading and rebooting etc.
Summary: In addition to this camera, I owned 3 more D-Link brand cameras: DCS-930L and two DCS-932L. Both cameras are pretty reliable and still in service for about 2 years. This is first camera that died on me after 6 months of service. I guess D-Link started "cost cutting, effective management.
Pros: Good image quality for IP camera, ability to pan/patrol. Multiple image quality profiles.
Cons: Not reliable. During 6 months I owned it, 3-4 times became unresponsive and required power cycle. Then one day green led no longer is on and camera is not accessible at all. Tried direct LAN connection, hard reset.
BUYER BEWARE! D-Link sells multiple DIFFERENT products under the same product number, with DIFFERENT capabilities!

Summary: YOU CANNOT MOUNT THIS FLUSH TO THE WALL/CEILING! Buyer Beware. D-Link sells multiple version of the BCS-5222L and they one I received does not include or will work with a mounting bracket. D-link's own website (entitled "D-Link | How do I mount my DCS-5222L to the wall or ceiling?
Summary: I purchased this camera for security purposes. I wanted something that could be viewed remotely and would email me a clear enough picture to use in prosecution if needed. These were my only requirements.
Summary: Very easy to install. It provides good coverage (video and audio), it has a control panel that you can zoom, adjust light, tilt and pan. Very user friendly. The only problem with the camera is that the website at DLink to control the camera is very slow to load. You do need a record system with it.
Summary: Bought this in-store (please note it is $10 cheaper here) and will be taking it back tonight. We are both tech savvy people and after spending 3 hours trying to get it set up and working properly we gave up.
