Excerpt: Everything you need to link your camera your e-mail is on the website. You do need to use the advanced settings also. I did need support because I didn't know how to set it to send pictures. It was sending a link to the website to my e-mail instead. They didn't know how to get it to send pictures to [@]e-mail but got it working with gmail. I didn't have any problems getting support. The camera does need unplugged every once in a while.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Sensitive
Summary: Newegg has a 30 day warranty with restock fee. D-Link has 12 month warranty but says return to point of sale. All very complicated to figure out. If I bought this from a local store I would just walk in and get another or a replacement.
Pros: Easy to set up, works perfectly.
Cons: Failed at 3 months - totally dead, no lights, no power, no nothing and although it has a 12 month warranty I can not figure out who to get help from, Newegg? D-Link?
Bad quality. Bad lag when utilizing the Remote view ...

Summary: Bad quality. Bad lag when utilizing the Remote view even with 4G or 24mb download 2mb upload internet. Viewing range is very limited. Picture is very pixelated. The green light on the front of the camera blinks when the video feed is being viewed. Kind of lame. I get (more than I'd like) emails saying the camera has been disconnected from network when it isn't.
Summary: Setup was okay, your grandmother wouldn't be able to do it though. Quality is good for the price and it has worked every time I connected with my smartphone. Mic simply DOES NOT WORK and produces static most of the time. I knew this going in by others reviews so it didn't affect my rating.
Summary: Make sure you update to the latest firmware.
Pros: Very small. Work great in the dark. Web interface is easy to use and understand. MyDlink portal works great. Can talk to the cameras from anywhere with a smartphone app. Price for two was unbeatable.
Cons: Resolution, wishing it were better. You get what you pay for. But it was decent. Java implementation is a pain. You need to make sure Java is up to date and enabled on your PC. But still quirky.
Excerpt: We purchased this camera to watch our little kitties while we are on vacation. The setup was a breeze and took only a few minutes. We love that we can view everything from our phone and that there is a motion detection feature that you can be alerted whenever there is motion. For the price we are very happy with this purchase.
Very poor image quality, extremely narrow viewing angle and wireless set up is a pain
13 June 2014
Summary: I ordered 3 of these cameras to monitor my house remotely. I was extremely disappointed with the product: 1- The wireless set up is a nightmare. Basically you have to call customer service so that they can walk you through the process since the software that you download per instructions doesn't work how it should. 2- The quality of the image is poor at best.
Summary: First off make note, no matter WHAT the instructions say to set this up for the first time you MUST be hardwired to your router. Other than that it is a no brainer. I have had no issues with this unit either in local or remote mode usage. I have used it with my iPod Touch, iPad 2 and via computers with no problems. Just don't expect a super sharp video image from this unit as it is low res.
Summary: Works as described, quality is not as good as I would prefur but you can still see faces in the dark from about 10-15 feet away. The web interface is a little wonky but you really only have to use it to connect to the wireless. I use this about 60 feet from my router and use Ispy to manage the recordings and view it with no problems. I have not had any issues with it losing the wireless connection so far and have had it for just over a month now.
