Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good product for the price. A bit challenging to set up but customer service is great.

 

I bought to to integrate with Smart Things home automation. For what it is, the price level and the only choice for outdoor wifi camera, this product is decent. Though setup is a bit challenging, the customer service rep (badge #AR004214) is outstanding.

A bit difficult to setup and the user interface can use a lot improvement. Also not a fan of the Java platform.

Frustrating, especailly at the price

 

I know it seems obvious, but it is an outdoor camera, but you need to power it. So you need an outlet to use it.

Decent picture, sound works with iphone app.

Set-up was awful. D-link app took many tries each time to find the camera. Almost as if there was no communication between the firmware team and the software team. When it finally found the camera (just keep hitting scan until it does!) then the...

NV image almost pointless

 

D-Link camera products seem like they're built OK. The setup is laborious however (2+ hours), even if you know what you're doing. I had to call the help desk (and they were actually pretty good) after upgrading the firmware because the image was very...

Works with D-Link's DNR-202L network video recorder and D-Link's cloud service that lets you monitor the live camera view via the Internet. Daylight image OK, but not that great. Water-resistant design (not tested). External antenna probably gives...

I have 3 different D-Link cameras that I have been trying out, in order of price paid (highest first): DCS-2230 (1920 x 1080) DCS-2232L (1920 x 780) DCS-2132L (1920 x 780) The night vision image of the 2232L is by far the worst of the bunch. It is very...

D-Link DCS-2330L

 

This was obviously not tested very much for outdoor weather conditions. Buy the 2 year warranty or try somehow to seal the areas I mentioned above. You're probably better off not buying it.

Worked good for a while.

After one month, camera stopped working. It is full of water. Leaks at Round white rubber plug and access hatch for the memory card. NOT FIT FOR OUTDOOR USE.

Range and Quality

 

This gives a great picture and with the IR/LEDs it even can see ok in low light situations. Automatically switches from day/night mode.. you do have several choices in settings. See the owners manual.. to much to list here. This is my 3rd camera, 4th...

Weather resistant ; Wireless range ; Easy install ; Understandable software, with information about selections on the page. Set and forget for the most part and very helpful tech support if needed ; Active forum

I also own the DCS-2332L which has tapped/threaded screws for the SD Card access, this has plastic drilled holes. So be careful not to strip or over tighten. Not necessary a con. All the software options are identical and you almost never open the cover
