D-Link DCS-930L Wireless N Network Camera review


After we reviewed the DropCam Echo a few weeks back and found ourselves generally unimpressed, we received an e-mail from someone at D-Link saying

Wireless connectivity ; Easy setup ; Relatively low cost

Poor image quality ; Software is unintuitive ; Seizure-inducing blinkenlight

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.

Tech support disgusting


I have been trying for 4 weeks to get camera working, now Dlink software will not even recognize camera. Had to conatct President of Dlink to have warranty honoured

Nice sleek unit

Does not work as advertised. Picture goes black after 3 minutes. Tech support is absolutly terrible and disgusting

Great Cameras, Great Price


I have three of these cameras, been running 24/7 for a long while now, year or two. The D-View software is **** but there is FOSS which has a lot more features and it's free and is Linux only. Even if you just remote into each camera it's pretty simple...

Pretty decent cameras ; Good quality ; Decent features ; Price was right ; Perfect for indoors

No night vision but at this price wasn't expecting it

Great Cameras


Just a fore note, I purchased these about a month ago but I purchased another model about a year ago ; Great cameras, they have decent quality, work well over wifi, and can remotely access them. Lots of features ; FTP upload ; Motion Capture ; Remote...

Not really any cons for the product at this price range, however the D-Viewcam software is WAY outdated and says you need IE6 to use the web interface. (Use IE 11 and force compatibility mode on it.) If they were to update the software and make the...

Works Now


This is the updated review. I did what the D-Link rep told me to do and now it is working. Picture is good. I set it up using the user manual

I had to wait a month to get a decent response on what to do to fix my problem. It takes the D-Link rep email over a week to get back to me. I had already tried resetting it but it didn't work before

Only Certain Features Work


Looks nice, you can actually view it through the DLink app on a mobile phone whenever you want

The motion detection is bugged. At first i was getting tons of emails but no pics. Then it stopped working. It keeps saying the PW is wrong but it isn't. I am working with Support but still no results. I will probably send it back

Cheap but does it work?


It worked for a while. Now it only displays a blank screen.

Low price

I am staring at a blank screen from both my iphone and my PC. Software bug? Hello Dlink

Inexpensive network camera


i bought this as a security camera for the front door of my girlfriend's place. I give it 4 stars only because it's relatively cheap compared to other network cameras that I have installed (Linksys brand). A lot of flaws (especially the lack of...

As far as a cheap, inexpensive network camera goes, this is a good as it gets ; Well, it works after a lot trial and error ; Did I mention it was cheap and inexpensive

It's very difficult to configure ; Documentation is lacking in many areas, particularly in how to set up motion capture to email offsite ; The stand doesn't have the best build quality. Once installed, it's rather difficult to unmount if you want to...
