So dissapointing

C. Voisin, Amazon

  • 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. Before this, I had the cheaper DLink 5010L and had to return it due to a blurry picture and constant false emails saying it either sensed motion or it was disconnected. I figured the more expensive 5222L would perform better, so I got it. I was wrong.

Doesn't work with Apple MAC

  • 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. Set up of the camera itself and installing the software to our computer was easy and straightforward. Problems came with the D-link website and the inabiliy to view the camera because Java and Apple don't get along.

Impossible to set up and constantly disconnects from wireless network

szj, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the D-Link DCS-5222L camera to monitor a sick pet while away from the home. Right out of the box, this camera was impossible to set up. Everything worked OK when hooking up with a wired connection, but trying to get the camera onto my wireless network took well over two hours. I have a D-Link DIR-825 Extreme-N Dual-Band Gigabit Router running the latest firmware, so you would assume that this setup would work flawlessly.

Too complicated for set up as a wireless security camera wthout techie assistance

Los Angeles Reader "LA, CA Reader", Amazon

  • Summary: 5/14/14 4:15p PDT. Without success, I have spent several hours now trying to set up and activate this D-Link Cloud Camera # DCS-5222L. Neither the enclosed written instructions nor the downloaded ones provide A to Z, step-by-step clear American English instructions to connect this unit wirelessly to a phone company installed router.
