Summary: Our requirements were very basic; we wanted to be able to look in on the house while at work. It would help us to ensure that the babysitter was actually sitting and that the pet sitters weren't robbing us blind. I've had mixed results with D Link products in the past, but the price was too tempting to pass up. I set up the camera first using WPS. However, the installation wizard on my PC kept insisting it couldn't find the camera.
Excerpt: If I wanted to run the camera attached to my router, it would have been a snap to do. However, I needed it to run wirelessly. I contacted Dlink and their support person had me do a firmware update and get their latest install wizard from their website. It took time, but I got it working. For the money and the application I needed it for, it is doing a wonderful job! I will say that the mic is very sensitive.
Pros: Compact, Inexpensive, Security, Web Viewable
Summary: I am very happy with this camera and software. It was easy to set up in wireless mode after I got an N router to replace my G Linksys router. I bought a refurbished Linksys N from Amazon for $18... works great! Back to the camera. It is small and unobtrusive. The picture is pretty good. The microphone has a lot of static but you can mute it or lower the volume. I downloaded dlink lite for my Kindle Fire and am very satisfied with it.
Great camera for Wired Connection... Poor for WI-FI beyond one room

Summary: 4 Star product for direct Ethernet connection. 2 Star product for Wi-Fi connection beyond medium range of normal devices. I bought 2 of these. My original one was hooked up via Ethernet and it works great. Decent Video / Poor audio. I bought another one and this time I wanted to place it In a location that required Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi on this device has the worst reception of any device in my house.
Summary: I got this camera a week or so ago (for $40 on here). Hooked it up and it works like a charm. I am an IT professional so setup was easy to me but I can see it being a problem for some people. I have two WRT54G routers with DD-WRT (one as an AP and one as a Repeater) and the video is smooth and I can access the camera from anywhere with a little Port Forwarding.
Summary: At first it was a hassle to get these to work. But tech support at D-Link was awesome and they got it hooked up to work like a champ. Yes I had to by a repeater due to low signal strength but that was not their fault. Got it cheap and totally works. I have seen some negative reviews but you get what you pay for. Great tech support from D-Link.
Summary: I purchased two of these to use as motion detection security cameras for our property. I didn't use the dlink software, as I don't use windows/mac products, only Linux. So I can't speak for that. I have both cameras working perfectly under ZoneMinder, and are excellent day-time cameras. Both cameras are capturing detected motion behind glass windows, and work very well. With zoneminder, I experienced issues with the latest dlink firmware (1.05).
Pros: Inexpensive, decent quality for the price, easy to setup, works great with zoneminder
Cons: lower fps at max resolution, sometimes images wash out. Not great in low-light situations.
Summary: After my neighbors got robbed several times, I needed a motion capable camera that records movement. This D-link 930L is perfect. I bought this @ $59.99. Even though there is technically NO darkness support, it works acceptable in low light. The resolution is OKAY and enough for me. I was able to use this with default D-Link D-View Cam iPad & PC software, iCam iPad & PC softwares. An alternate would be Wansview which is also good too!
Summary: I found this network camera easy to setup and to use. If you are viewing it on the same wireless network as the camera you get unlimited time and a somewhat larger picture, although not full screen. This does not work to monitor from a remote location or on a Google app. It will time out in 60 seconds and must be restarted. There is also a few second delay on what you are seeing remotely.
Summary: D-link works fine.use it for work and can see what's going on while at home.but canot get it to work wireless.which I would love so I could move it around to monitor other areas beside the registers
