D-Link DCS-2530L Review


The D-Link 2530L captures excellent audio and daylight video, but only so-so night video. While the software is well-designed and easy to use, it's missing some key functionality and depth. When testing the apps and web portal remotely, we were often...

Intuitive, easy-to-master software ; Excellent daylight video & audio quality ; Real-time ambient sound measure to help set sound detection sensitivity

No sharing ; No cloud storage ; Unreliable connection ; Limited scheduling and other functionality

D-Link DCS-2530L Full HD 180 Degree WiFi Camera


Technology keeps moving forward. It wasn't too long ago that we reviewed the 2630L and here we have a follow up model to that, the 2530L. While it lacks two way audio, everything else is basically the same. It is also half the size and draws less...

D-Link DCS-2530L review


Instead of using a motor to move the camera for a wider view, this new security camera has a true 180 degree lens. Here's our D-Link DCS-2530L review.

The DCS-2530L is a decent camera which gives you the kind of view you’d traditionally need a pan and tilt camera to get. It records at full quality to a microSD card, too. However, it’s badly let down by a clunky app and web portal. Plus, at this high...

D-Link DCS-2530L Full HD 180-Degree Wi-Fi Camera review: The second time is the charm


Earlier this year, we reviewed the Full HD 180-Degree Wi-Fi Camera (model DCS-2630L), a good camera handcuffed by a limited app. This second iteration of this camera, model DCS-2530L, retains all the previous version's strengths while eliminating its...
