It's an okay pan & tilt day/night camera if you're using the mydlink system

Summary: This D-Link DCS-5222L wireless HD pan & tilt camera does what it is supposed to do, but the web interface and apps are clunky and unintuitive. I have this connected to the D-Link DNR-202L recorder, but have accessed it's web interface directly as well. Neither is intuitive.
OK at first, but having some issue after a few months

Summary: The firmware has improved on this camera, but it it still difficult to set up. More importantly, the motion detection has stopped emailing (or FTPing, or anything other than logging the fact that motion was detected. This was working well in place and I performed a firmware update.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera to keep an eye on my business when I couldn't be there. Setting up the camera was fairly easy. It connected right away with the CAT5 cable, but when I put it to wireless, it took a couple of attempts to connect. Still only took me about 25 minutes, so not bad.
Summary: 2 things that bothered me about this. My MacBook Air would not recognize this thing no matter what I did. And their website can't be viewed from a Mac because the software on their website runs through Java... If you're a Mac user I WOULD NOT buy this.
Summary: Nice little camera, but you have the same issues with all the D-Links, the software stinks and you HAVE TO put a username and password on EVERY camera. Quite the burden, especially when you move one. You have to keep a spread sheet of the camera Name and Password and Location to keep them straightl.
The newer B1 Revision is out there. DO NOT BUY THIS OLDER version. Or should you?

Summary: If you go to bestbuy, you will find the B1 revision which is supposed to be better (at least it has speaker built-in) but if you read the reviews there, you will find out it might not be the case. If you have to buy one, you might want to stick with the original.
Summary: Ok so bear with me. The product it's self seems ok. It's rather large so forget trying to hide this and use it as a nanny cam. I like the camera but I left off two starts for the actual service. This is a cloud based camera meaning it only works when the service works.
Summary: the camera is great, picture is clear. I liked the camera except for one thing, there is a lag when I try the camera movement (pan and tilt), even thou I was withing the home network. it takes time to response.
Summary: I purchased the 5222L because of the excellent quality and performance of the 5020L. After it took well over an hour to get it connected to my wireless network and on the cloud site, It would not stay up.
