Nice Camera shame about the IP software.

Mr. Robert James Green, Amazon
13 January 2008
  • Summary: The camera is a nice design, fair quality image and easy to set up. The enclosed web-based software from Dlink is nice and easy to handle and does the job cleanly and simply. Exactly what you want from a home or small office camera system to monitor activity. However, I purchased the cameras (2) because of the description of the IP security suite that was supposed to come with it, allowing 16 cameras to be monitored and recorded simultaneously. Rubbish....!

okay when it works

TLuke, Amazon

  • Summary: The DCS-5300 only works with Internet Explorer, which is okay. The DCS-5300 lets you remotely control the camera, which is okay. The DCS-5300 reboots itself every 24 hours from when you plugged it in, which is okay. My DCS-5300 doesn't always respond to the remote control requests, which is not okay, but it will reboot in 24 hours and some times that fixes this problem, so that makes it okay. It's just okay. For $250, I wanted more than okay.

Works well enough

S. Wilensky, Amazon
13 January 2008
  • Summary: This was to replace my old D-Link 6620 camera which just quit working eafter about 1 year. I figured why spend a fortune if they don't last. This one is clearly a lower quality camera in every way. The lack of an auto focus, or even a way to focus it from my PC, makes it nearly impossible to set up properly. The low light ability is not as good either. All I can say is it works...for now.

  • Summary: I bought this product to see my kids while I am away on business and I have other people living in my house and I use it to just check in and see whats going on and its good for the daytime but at night you cant see nothing so if you want to keep tabs on ppl in the house you might want to have some lights on. Other than that this is the best secuirty for your house.
