D-Link DCS-5222L Review

 

D-Link's strategy to get you into its MyDlink IP cameras is quite insidious. First, you buy one of the company's low-cost cams to look at the baby in the crib. Then, you buy one to point out the front door. Pretty soon, you have a 1,000-eyed beast that...

Clunky web interface; switches to night mode too easily

D-Link DCS-5222L Cloud Camera Review: Call It 'Professional Lite'

 

If you're looking for a pan/tilt IP camera for security purposes, but you don't need the top-shelf performance and design features that drive the price of more business-centric models like the Axis M5014 beyond five bills, the $250 (as of August 5,...

Relatively inexpensive, considering the resolution ; Local storage on a MicroSD card ; Remote access is easy to set up

Exposed lens and pan/tilt mechanism ; Has three wildly different user interfaces ; Small online video window isn't resizable

Although the DCS-5222L is a good value among IP cameras, the footage it provides isn't as crisp as 720p video should be.

D-Link Pan/Tilt/Zoom Cloud Camera DCS-5222L review

 

The setup of the unit is straightforward and requires an initial connection via ethernet. This process allows you to choose between wireless (802.11n) and wired (ethernet) connections. It also allows you to set up a D-Link account to log into your...

This device has so many useful features we have only scratched the surface in this review. However, its a shame that with such a rich feature set the device is let down by a poor quality image sensor. For a better image without pan and tilt, its all...

Great Camera

 

Support was great. I sent an Email one day and the next day I had a call from support( AR004202) this young lady was real sharp. With in minutes she had the camera working with my wireless network. I would recommend D-Link to anyone who wants great...

Camera has a good picture, pans and tilts well. App for phone handles watch the camera from out side the house

Somewhat dificult to set up wireless access

Performance falls short of advertised

 

I purchased the 5222L because of the excellent quality and performance of the 5020L. After it took well over an hour to get it connected to my wireless network and on the cloud site, It would not stay up. I would have thought that the problem was my...

Its a beast...

 

the website is really handy, it is able to get to the cameras from the website, it sends email notifications. You can configure motion detection. Its a well crafted piece of tech.

sturdy, software support, easy to configure, the MyDlink website, strong wireless signal, everything you need in the box. Advanced settings will make you proud

pretty large - to the point of bulky, not - nondescript, you know its recording you, the IR sensor does not shine well through windows. But no overall deal breakers

D-Link DCS-5222L

 

Very satisfied with this item as compared to like items.

Access anywhere ; App on all devices ; Great quality

Network setup and accessing online could be a hassle to those less tech savy

Great Home Security Cam

 

The configuration options and performance are outstanding for use as a home security camera. I'm using the motion sensor function to alert me via email with JPG images, record HD video to the PNY 32GB micro SD card I have installed, and send a lower...

My only nit-pic is the limited options on the activation of the motion sensor. While you can configure what days of the week for the sensor to be active, it is one dimensional, meaning you limited one set of days and one time window for all selected...

Mixed bag

 

ok, but not great, resolution for the price range, good range of motion

requires java-enabled browser and won't work natively with browsers on IOS devices. Allegedly, D-Link's software is supposed to make images visible on IOS devices, but I haven't tried. Why should I waste my time with an app when competitors' products...
