Summary: Good and clear images. Not to much depth on the night infrared and for the price it at least chould move right and left even a little. Have problems with SD card. But overall it was a good investment and at least gives me peace of mind that I can have surveillance on my covered patio and porch.
Summary: This is a very good quality, fully-featured netcam that works well as a day/night security camera. Although the resolution isn't great, the video quality is still quite good. It was easy to install a 32GB micro-SD card, set up motion capture recording and e-mail alerting in the detailed Web UI, and view both live and recorded video on the go with the myDlink app (available for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone).
Pros: Reliable motion detection, Very good low-light performance, Both on-device video recording and e-mail snapshots, Smartphone App for remote viewing live and recorded video (SD card), Solid WiFi
Excerpt: Everything is well thought out about this camera except setting it up on a wireless network. If you can use the auto configure mode it might be great, but if your router doesn't support this-good luck"! I'm just lucky to have a network engineer for a son. Once it works, it's excellent.
Summary: I got this camera to monitor my house when I'm not at home. The setup was easy even without using the WPS feature. If you want to image quality is clear and the night vision is great and doesn't disturb you when sleeping, it's just 4 red LEDs. The camera itself looks sturdy and will hold it position fine, just make sure you secure the cords where you don't disturb/trip over them and the move the camera.
Excerpt: Great camera. I use it to monitor my pets. I first tried the black/white camera, but the quality was not so great. I would pay the extra to get the color, low light (infrared) models. They work great in low/dark light. So far, no problems with wireless connection.
Pros: This is an update to my previous review (wish they could be edited). I purchased newer version of the camera with the latest firmware and the whole process of setup and operation works so much better! The camera quality is just okay. I may return it and get the DCS-2132L which is HD.
Cons: The IR lights glow red when it is dark, which doesn't make the camera very stealthy.
Awesome camera, great image quality. Needs better zoom +/- capabilities

Summary: I purchased this camera for the purpose of recording activity at my front door. I use it in conjunction with a kwikset z-wave deadbolt and micasa verde lite 3. Great camera. I thoroughly enjoy the functionality as well as the build quality. The only thing that bothers me is the zoom level. The camera defaults to a very close zoom level and it doesnt appear to be customizable. The quality in pixels is by far better than any other webcam i have used.
