Summary: This camera has auto-pan and auto-patrol features that, if enabled, will disable the motion detection feature. If you need motion detection, get a DCS 900 or DCS 2100. These models are also compatible with the D-View software.
Pros: First of all, the DCS 5300 has a max video resolution of 640 x 480 (at 10 frames per second) not the 320 x 240 that Newegg has posted in the product description. You won't find a better value than this thing. Tilt, pan, digital zoom, audio. Put it together with a DLink power-over-ethernet adapter...
Cons: The software is a little kludgy to set up, but once it's set, it is rock solid and perfectly reliable. The software is compatible with a variety of D-Link cameras and will allow monitoring up to 16 cameras total. It is a bit cpu intensive, so don't expect stellar results if you intend to run it o...
Summary: Terrrifc value. Learn the camera, be patient. Learn the IP software, be patient. It wil be worth it. These cameras live in a inhospitible inviornment. Flawless.
Pros: I have two DCS 5300's/DCS 70's running 24/7 on the exterior a my Apartment Building in the Carribean, 4,000 miles from my home. I record motion to my desktop at home. They have operated flawlessly. Take the time to learn the camera and the IP Survailance software. It will be well worth it. I trav...
Cons: None as far as I'm concerned. I had to update my IP software to improve video. Very simple.
Summary: Very nice camera and software. I have set it up as my security system and it works very well at a fraction of the cost that I have been quoted for other systems that did not provide the same functionality. Software is amazing considering the cost (FREE)! Had no problems at all setting it up.
Summary: This camera has to be the best available option for office/home surveillance system on the market. I have 4 camera's at home and recommended them in the office, and now using 2. With my networking background, set up was less than 15 minutes.
Summary: This thing is like a little robot eye. I can pan and tilt and digital zoom all from a web browser on my networked PC. The image quality is good, the wireless range is good, the features are quite robust, and it even looks good.
Summary: I like this camera very much. I wish there was more documentation on it though. I want to know what every setting does and how it does it. I want to build programs/PHP scripts that "interact" with this camera and allow for image archiving or other neat little features.
Summary: I just upgraded my camera to the new 1.03 Firmware on D-Link's support site and the camera works better for me. I don't get the random freezes or disconnects anymore. I liked the camera before, but now it's just generally more responsive.
Summary: Già proprio così, chi non ha mai voluto avere una webcam, in grado di controllare la vostra postazione pc per evitare che sorelle, fratelli o colleghi indiscreti spulcino tra i vostri file per usarli contro di voi???
