They deleted the first one so I thought

 

I would try again. The support is pretty bad. I have problems configuring 'Snapshot' and 'Video Clip'. I finally got 'Snapshot' settings to Save, but still no help with 'Video Clip'. I gave it '4's' hoping to get this one past the Censors.

Somewhat

 

I am somewhat pleased with the product. Set up was easy and it's nice having the sd card to record to. The app for the iPhone could be better plus apple doesn't support jvav which is the main platform dlink uses. The camera will work for diy security

Nice features, terrible software

 

After owning several D-link products there downfall has always been there software. New products are not thoroughly tested and early software feels like betaware. My advice is wait at least 6 months for them to get the bugs out and read the advice of...

Nice features. H.264

I could not get there Active-X software installed, which I assumed is neede to view the camera from a web browser. I did everything that was suggested (checked Acitve-X controls and disabled firewall)and still no luck. I was able to connect to camera...

Unusable

 

I bought one of these at Fry's. Try as I might, I couldn't get the "cloud" based configuration software to work. Every time I tried to configure the motion sensing, a "Loding" (yes, that's what it said) graphic would come up, followed by the old IE...

None

Online-based software is junk
