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

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...

Cam good Stand Bad =worthless

 

I love the cams but 2 of them the stand has broken and I can either stare at the floor or the ceiling. I will never buy D-link again

The camera is full of features and works well- but the stand is so cheap it breaks- making the camera Un-able to stay in position. Yes, that is right- the technology is great- the easy part- plastic stand D-link messed up on

2 separate cams the stands have broken. I was VERY careful with them. The Plastic is brittle. The bad part is the cameras are worthless with out the stands. Customer support at d-link is worthless
