Excerpt: I have installed all sorts of cameras from Mobotix to Vivotek to Panasonic. I'm not a fan of dlink but this camera was super easy to install and add to the network. The Apple app for the iPad and iPhone work great. Some times there is a video lag but that could due to the slow 3G network. I with the lens was 3 or 5 megapixel or had greater magnification. We use this camera to monitor our house and our miniature schnauzer.
Summary: I am in charge of installing cameras in multiple buildings on my WAN. I used "better" cameras in the first building due to the need for high-quality video if anything were ever to happen there. I utilized their version of the 360-degree camera and was very impressed, so I thought I would give the D-link version a try. SETUP of the D-link was MUCH easier and I had it setup in a couple minutes (NOT using the available cloud service).
Pros: Easily blends in by looking like a smoke detector --- can take the place of 4 cameras --- easy to setup --- better low-light image than a similar, but more expensive camera I've used
Cons: No Power Over Ethernet --- Only records the video the way that it is configured as opposed to being able to Pan/Tilt/Zoom once it's been recorded --- no software in the box and the downloadable software is useless in a server/monitor situation --- IR lights for night vision?
Excerpt: These network cloud cameras are nice, I bought 2. I did notice when I opened the shipped box that one of cameras wrapping was already open and with closer inspection one of the cameras was used. After installing I had to go to the mydlink cloud and change the cameras owner.Both cameras worked fine. Easy to setup and use otherwise....
Summary: I bought 2 of those cams for a client you wanted wireless security cameras. To be honest, they work better than I thought; normally I stay away from Dlink products because I had a couple of bad experience with them, but those cams seems to be the exception. It can be hard to configure the camera to always record on the SD card and the Mydlink website / mobile app is crap, but still the camera is not that bad.
