Not quite ready for primetime

Eddie H Ziv, Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: Let me start by saying that the system works and effective, but it's plagued with software issues, and not quite up-to-date image quality. If you use iPad/iPod/iPhone the setup is quick and easy, however I have yet to be able to watch recording on SD-Card. When I tried, it crashes. In Windows, the setup took a little more time, and every browser is different. It requires JAVA and it may work on IE but not on Firefox or Chrome and vise versa.

Fair

  • Summary: Easy to get hooked into the internet. Once logged in, the video quality is not the best but, it will do. I get the impression that it has to be close to a wireless connection to work well.

B&H Great / camera not so much

jeff5267, B&H Photo
1 October 2013
  • Excerpt: No complaints with B&H... Ease of placing order and the ability to track shipping were outstanding... Dlink camera is OK... Maybe if you have all Dlink equipment it might be easier to set up... But if you don't... It is a difficult proccess... Getting infomation from the Dlink website was like pulling teeth without novacane... Dlink's software not so great... Neither is their email notification system... I finally got it up and running...
  • Cons: Faulty, Unreliable

  • Pros: Good price.
  • Cons: Have to reconfigure a lot if network has issues.
