D-Link DCS-930L webcam keeps an inexpensive eye on your world

 

I do a lot of playing around with webcams. Years ago I wrote a long screed about how difficult it was to get a FOSCAM PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) webcam set up in my ho...

mydlink™-enabled DCS-930L

 

Contracting with a professional monitoring service is the best option for home security in most cases, but if you want to try your hand at it alone, the D-Link DCS-930L Wireless N Network Camera is an easy-to-use option.

The D-Link DCS-930L Wireless N Network Camera has a compact design that makes it a good fit for small spaces

The field of view is not very wide, and there is no way to pan or tilt the camera to take in more of the room

Monitoring your own security system is inconvenient, but this is a relatively easy-to-use and economical wireless security camera.

Cheap Cameras are cheap

 

Other thoughts.

I actually like this thing for the price. It is easy to remote into with the D-Link android app. The video quality is alright. And the FTP feature works really well. For a while i was storing photos when it saw motion onto my desktop. It worked, but i...

The microphone doesn't work very well. You can hear a muffled noise, usually you can tell what it is, but not very clearly.

New Firmware Did The Trick

 

I got it in one (1) day, ordered @ 0930hrs and thanks to On-Trac picking up late in the afternoon, I had it the next day by noon.

1) Some claim the picture wasn't very clear over 3 feet or so from the subject. The Firmware vs 2.12 seems to have cleared this up. 2) Price 3) Quality of Picture 4) Easier to access Tech than a lot of Companies (even though the young lady may have...

1) The install wizard is not a whole lot of help if your network is not set to 192.168.0.xxx. The third set of numbers MUST be a zero (0) or you will have to disconnect your computer from the net reconfigure your computer IPV4 settings to match the...

Didn't work

 

Don't bother with this if you do not have a dlink router.

Might be a good camera if you have a dlink router, not sure.

Couldn't get it to work with my linksys router. All the instuctions I found for this is for connecting to dlink router. Spent 2 hours trying to get it to work and that is enough time worth investing into this in my opinion.

D-Link DCS-930L

 

Very affordable, seem to function well. Good customer support. Long wait at times but once connected with technician they do not end conversation until the problem is solved.

Setup for wireles not very easy to do. Lots of steps. Wizard does not help you much at all. But, very educational to go through steps and see how cameras are linked and updated.
