Summary: Useless on Windows. It requires an ActiveX control to view *anything* at all, and the control doesn't install. D-Link website has no useful information at all, and there's absolutely no way to diagnose the problem.
Summary: DON`T BUY IT! 2This review is for the DCS-6010L model only. The only reason I give this camera 1 star is for the picture quality. I have been through 4 of these now and have experienced a 50% problem rate. The first one I had kept disconnecting from any of the web based viewing apps every day.
Pretty good camera, wireless is hopelessly unreliable.

Summary: UPDATE: Through recent firmware updates (I assume) these cameras have become completely unstable - requiring manual reboots every other day. All but one of the cameras is hardwired (CAT5) and didn't have issues, but they have become so unstable that I cannot possibly recommend them.
Don't bother, buy something else if your using wifi, disconnects frequently

Summary: The camera quality is great however it CONSTANTLY disconnects from the network. I have mine located a mere 20 feet from my router and it still can't stay connected. You must reset it everyday or even multiple times per day. What kind of security is that?
Summary: camera doesn't work right- connection drops more than 10 times per day weather over poe or plugged in went through 3 ethernet cables thinking they were bad then the nightvision went out and night is the only time I need it also the recording is glitchy sometimes it records to my sd card some times...
Summary: I have to admit I didn't do much to play with the picture settings but I purchased the bullet cam instead and the picture looked so much better even though they are suppose to have the same optics the dlink cloud service is the problem with this cam its unreliable ive had the service disconnected...

Summary: I live in the humid Mid-Atlantic region, and this device was installed properly; however, within one week I noticed a haze on the HD video pic, I went outside and was completely disappointed to find condensation developing INSIDE the lens cover.
