Internet Camera

Phillip, Amazon
18 March 2013
  • Summary: I had my technician install the internet camera and the technican could not get it to work. I returned the camera and was charged a $12 restock fee. I didn't think that was fair, since the camera cost $40. I will never shop there again.

Constant Reboot

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 September 2009
  • Summary: The camera needs to be rebooted once every couple of days. Not very dependable at all. I bought it 6 months ago with Firmware 1.07. My other DCS-6620g works fine...both running wireless connections. Once I update it with Firmware 1.08 (released 5/5/2009) I will revise my review.

OK for the price

J. Kim "tiger jk", Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: I have 4 of these cameras and they are all running under IP View SE. They run for weeks until they need to be resetted (one of them is a wireless and that one crashes way too often). For the price, these cameras get the job done. Now for the internet viewing.... I am fairly knowledgeable with computers and networking, but something is awfully wrong here. I have 12 D-Link internet cameras. Some of them can be viewed online, some cannot. Same with these 4.

Don't waste your time!

Carol L. Mccartney, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: I have spent the past 3 weeks talking to I think every D-Link tech support person there is,(litterly all over the world)trying to get this camera to work. I can see it on my LAN but not on the internet. We could see the camera interface on the net, but no video, just a black screen. Most of the 1st level tech people don't have a clue. The 2nd level tech people seamed to know more, but still couldn't help.

Great features if it would keep working

T. Knettel, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: I bought the DCS-950 camera to watch people testing in a room. I found the camera easy to set up with the instructions that were supplied so maybe I had newer instructions. The image quality is pretty good even in low light. The features seem pretty good but they are a little awkward to use and I didn't test some of them. Overall I would be thrilled with the camera for the price but it keeps crashing.

good concept, needs work

teh_pidhead, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: I bought 2 of these cameras. They had sequential serial numbers, so I know the hardware was the same batch. One of the cameras works as well as can be expected, but the other one locks up very easily. It has locked up at least 10 times under normal usage conditions, and requires the reset button to be held while connecting power to get it to work again. Simply power cycling does not work. This happened on firmware 1.0, 1.2 and 1.3.

Unreliable at best and poorly documented.

George Hogge, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: I am a networking professional with many years experience so I was able to get it to work. I have no idea how a novice would have any success with this device. The documentation is almost non-existent and some of the explanations are just flat wrong. I would not buy this product again. However, it is the first D-Link product I have been disappointed with.

Buy other D-Link cameras or spend a little more on a Panasonic.

reeses, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: I bought this, a Panasonic Wireless camera, and a Toshiba IK-WB15A wired camera to sample externally-facing cameras for my home. The Toshiba is the best (and the most expensive), the Panasonic is acceptable during the day and a little more expensive, but the D-link is a huge disappointment. The D-Link DCS-950 doesn't share video via MPEG or Motion-JPEG, unlike some of the other D-Link cameras.

Finally figured it out

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: Finally figured out how to get around the constant rebooting issue. You shouldn't have to do this but the Camera does give a good picture. Once you open a browser and assuming you can log on and connect the first time, and after you have logged off, don't close the browser or go to another Web page on the same browser. Just minimize it and open another Browser for other Net activity. When you want to connect to the camera again, restore your minimized browser.
