A gadget that every parent with a baby should have

 

Monitor your loved one through a smartphone. You can watch (even in total darkness) and even talk to them remotely, where ever you are.

D-Link DCS-825L HD Wi-Fi Baby Camera Review

 

Looking at the technical specifications, I must admit that it appears that D-Link has hit almost all of the targets with the feature set for this Wi-Fi HD camera. On paper this looks like it may be a real winner, so let's get our hands on it and see if...

Once powered on, to configure the?D-Link DCS-825L HD Wi-Fi Baby Camera you merely have to take your Apple iOS or Android mobile device of choice, download the free mydlink Baby Camera Monitor app. Once the app is installed, it's a 10 step process to...

Just awful

 

Why is it so hard for companies to make quality networking gear? I knew DLink was at the bottom of the barrel, but this is more than scraping... it's tearing through the boards to bury itself.

1.) It's night vision is a good medium level (not blindingly bright) ; 2.) Fairly easy setup

1.) Doesn't maintain a connection to the included app. Had to buy a 3rd party app just to keep it connected ; 2.) The wifi doesn't work after only 6 months of use. Factory reset doesn't do anything to fix the problem ; 3.) DLink support is as bad as...

Unreliable

 

It's highly likely that all of the troubles I've had are software related and will be fixed at some point in the future. I've had a lot of fun tinkering with this thing before my kid was born, but now that I have a kid, I need a baby monitor that...

The camera sports a number of great features that can be found in more expensive cameras. The concept is fantastic, a baby cam designed specifically for geek parents ; The setup is as easy as everyone else states, probably not easy enough for the very...

I've updated firmware, reset the camera, tried working on it through the telnet interface, and nothing gets me past the simple fact that something is wrong with the camera ; If you look at the other forums, or negative reviews, you will see that I'm...

Good, but could be better

 

While I am not the most technically savvy person, I work in the tech industry/ecosystem so I do have some insights into hardware vs. software companies. I definitely think D Link's strength is in hardware. My husband has bought and used several D Link...

Great night vision (not creepy, horror movie style) ; Image quality is good ; Relatively quick, basic set-up (with some caveats). If you are just setting up the camera (and don't need to upgrade the firmware), it is honestly a VERY quick process... but...

Have to do everything via phone... which can be tricky if you have long network names/passwords, or you are trying to access website ; A comprehensive manual (in addition to the quick guide) is available, but only via the app. My husband could not find...
