Excerpt: This seems like a good cam from a trusted name. I like the D-Link hardware and cloud features. However, I purchased it for my Staples Connect system and the integration and the information could be better.When I first added it to the system, all I could do is view the camera.

Summary: The camera quality is what you would expect for the price. If you are planning to use Android or Windows, their software is ok (take note, OK, not good).

If you will use this on IPhone, Ipod or Ipad, think before you buy and look at the Apple App Store reviews for the app.
Summary: Good picture, but same issues as all the other models, proprietary software and you have to username and password every camera whcih is a pain in the neck.

They are as close to plug and play as you can get, but the software ruins all that joy.

Like I said great little camera with all the setting I wanted.

I am a very tech savvy person that still had moderate difficulties installing. Here are the ongoing issues: 1.
Excerpt: Camera set up was a snap, finding the right program for my Galaxy 3 took a little longer...go with the "MyD-Link Lite" app, it works.Overall a easy set up and good picture quality. I'm using it with a 32GB MicroSD card and it records small (appr 2-5min) files for over 10days before over-writing.
