Quality outdoor day/night network Camera

Michael M., Newegg
30 November 2014
  • Summary: Almost forgot, supports POE, has 2 way audio and standard power adapter for those of us currently lacking a means of supplying POE. The cabling is routed out the back of the camera, where it is hidden behind the mounting bracket, allowing anyone to give it that 'professional' installation look.
  • Pros: Solid design; quality construction using material that will stand up to the elements. The fragile electronics inside are well protected, even the memory card, as it is installation requires opening up the protective cylinder casing, accomplished by simply unscrewing the camera cover from the base...
  • Cons: Initially I had some trouble accessing the camera via IE 11. Chrome didn’t have a problem. Was able to fix the issue with IE 11, which had to do with Active X not allowing the connection. I’m able to use Chrome for everything EXCEPT the ePZT controls. A small window pops up with and error message...

EggXpert Review - D-Link DCS 7010

Chessie T., Newegg
15 November 2014
  • Summary: One thing is for sure, you will need a proffessional to install this for you if you lack the skills and knowledge to do so yourself, especially if you plan on using it outside and there isn't an existing camera location.
  • Pros: The mobile app (Android) worked wonderfully to view while away from the computer. You're limited to the screen size of your phone, however, but you still have the option to take a screenshot. Otherwise, since it's a cloud camera, you can access it from any internet-connected device. The mobile ap...
  • Cons: There is an audio delay when using two-way communication, both to and from the unit. However, it is only a second or two, so it's not a terrible delay. The night mode seems a little too sensitive, as it will activate even when there's plenty of light, taking it from the color day-mode to black an...

Good Quality Images

netlcm, B&H Photo
14 July 2014
  • Excerpt: This camera captures good high def images and video. When used as wireless cameras connected to wifi devices they use a pretty good amount of bandwidth. If connecting 3 or more of these to be used in a wireless system you will notice a slow down in performance of your wifi.

Excellent quality camera

skoog, Office Depot
15 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera to augment an existing suite of DCS-7110 cameras. The older 7110 cameras cost about twice as much as this newer version. This particular camera looks down my driveway.
  • Pros: value, Features, Easy to Use, Design, Performance
  • Cons: technical support

Local Viewing, Sort of...

David S., Newegg
24 December 2013
  • Summary: The requirement for the cameras to access DLink's servers even if the end-user desires to use them in stand-alone (no Internet connection) mode, seems a bit intrusive and unnecessary, to say the least.
  • Pros: Camera is easy to set up in a local-only mode. IR quality is good. Viewable from browser (tested Firefox and IE), and from 1 of the Android Apps (MyDlink Lite)...see below for problems with other apps. Gave it two eggs for limited usability.
  • Cons: Summary of two major problems: 1. The DCS-7010L auto-installer seems to have major (insurmountable for me) problems (as compared to the DCS-932L). 2. The MyDlink+ Android app, useful for viewing more than one camera at a time, and taking snapshots, won't work if a camera cannot complete the auto-...

Great IP camera, solid build, and worked without issue in harsh winter weather

Aidan, Amazon
10 July 2014
  • Summary: I've got three of these camera's watching my property with plans for a forth. Aggregating the feeds and recording with a DLink DNR-202L (highly recommend). As for connectivity I have added them to my home network with DLink PowerLine AV500 adaptors (Ethernet over powerline) to avoid running CAT5.

Poor wiring design for outdoor wall installation

hieppo, Costco
8 May 2014
  • Summary: The camera was well built and design. However, the thought into the wiring harness is extremely poor. The camera is advertised to work outdoor. Most houses I know are brick and the wiring harness requires a big hole to fish the wiring through.
  • Pros: built construction is good
  • Cons: poor wiring harness design for fishing through wal

Great other than the fact it craps out at -5°C

spiralout112, Amazon
3 February 2014
  • Summary: Like the other guy said, works great until it starts getting cold outside. I've done a lot of trouble shooting and without fail as soon as the camera warms up inside its fine. But hook it up outside and within a hour or two the camera becomes unresponsive and the switch lists 'other fault' in the...
