D-Link Full HD 180-Degree Wi-Fi Camera DCS-2630L

 

The D-Link Full HD 180-Degree Wi-Fi Camera DCS-2630L offers an ultra-wide field of vision, motion and sound detection, and detailed HD video, but it's relatively bulky and it doesn't interact with other smart home devices.

Sharp HD video. Wide field of view. MicroSD card slot for local video storage. Motion and audio detection.

Bulky. Does not work with other home automation devices. No email alerts.

Conclusions The D-Link Full HD 180-Degree Wi-Fi Camera DCS-2630L is a solid choice for homeowners looking to monitor an entire room with a single camera. It delivers crisp ultra-wide HD video with minimal distortion, and offers precise motion and audio...

It's complicated: My love-hate relationship with D-Link's latest camera

 

There's a pretty decent camera hidden inside the $180 D-Link DCS-2630L's comically oversized frame.

The $180 D-Link DCS-2630L offers a 180-degree distortion-free live stream along with local cloud storage (up to 128GB, microSD card not included), one of the first DIY models with these combined options.

Setting up a connected D-Link product is notoriously complicated (according to our experiences, at least) and the DCS-2630L is no exception. The camera is huge -- literally. It's way bigger than Nest Cam and other competitors.

If you are specifically looking for a wide-angle DIY indoor camera with local storage, the D-Link DCS-2630L will work well. Just don't expect stellar design or a headache-free setup process.

D-Link DCS-2630L Full HD Ultra-Wide View Wi-Fi Camera review: This solid product needs a full-featured app

 

This camera boasts highly customizable security features, but you'll need your computer to access them.

Ultra-wide viewing angle ; Highly customizable detection settings ; Sturdy construction

Complex setup process ; Advanced features aren’t accessible from app ; No battery backup

The DCS-2630L is a solid security camera, but it would benefit from a more full-featured app.

D-Link DCS-2630L Review

 

The D-Link DCS-2630L's wide field of view contributes to its excellent daytime video performance. The security camera also comes with a good set of features that are easy to use. While the nighttime image quality isn't the best, this security camera...

This security camera has the widest field of view in our review.

The D-Link DCS-2630L had below-average scores in our nighttime video tests.

The D-Link DCS-2630L's daytime video quality is on par with that of the best security cameras. While its sound and nighttime video quality don't have the same quality, its mobile app is easy to use.

D-Link DCS-2630L Review

 

The price of the D-Link DCS-2630L ($159) is in the medium range, but because it doesn't offer cloud storage, you don't have to pay anything extra per month. So if you don't care about saving your videos to the cloud, this might be a good option.

Very good video quality ; Intuitive software ; Good control over motion detection ; Effective sound-detection sensitivity

No sharing options ; Not all web browsers fully supported ; No cloud storage ; Limited scheduling

The D-Link DCS-2630L is easy to use and offers very good video quality along with effective motion and sound detection.

D-Link DCS-2630L Wide-View HD WiFi Camera

 

There are many cameras that offer a wider field of view for use to see an entire room and more. These cameras, generally, have pretty bad quality and that horrible fish-eye look. The D-Link DCS-2630L offers to fix those issues in an easy to use package.

D-Link DCS-2630L Full HD 180-Degree Wi-Fi Camera Review

 

And that is where the D-Link DCS-2630L comes into play. This Wi-Fi enabled full HD home security camera is D-Link's new flagship security product and it is

– High quality images ; – Easy set-up and installation ; – Packed with features ; – Fit and finish are perfect ; – Streaming is nearly flawless ; – On device SD Storage

– Slow loading ; – SD setup and playback is not straight-forward ; – Full browser support is limited

The world we live in seems to be getting more hostile all the time. Whether this is true or simply the impression we get from being so connected makes little difference. It only makes sense that one would want to gain as much peace of mind as possible;...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Hard to setup

 

Nice wide clean view

After wasting a lot of time what I ended up doing for camera set up... I held the reset button until the LED flashed Red real fast.. Once it started flashing orange I ran the app on the phone and everything went smooth

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very large and nice quality camers with Great wide angle viewing but constantly disconnects from my remote app

 

I would not recommend this camera based on my experience.

Quality Build, excellent wide angle viewing

Very difficult to set up Constantly disconnects and is rendered useless remotely

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great camera when it works but D-Link's customer service is awful.

 

If you get a good one that doesn't have a failure, I would recommend this camera. Otherwise look elsewhere.

Camera has a sharp picture, low light mode is decent, ultra wide viewing angle gets the whole room into the picture. Some chromatic aberration at the edges but that's to be expected. Fairly easy to setup and manage even without using the cloud service...

On my unit the IR/night filter shutter stopped working, resulting in the IR/night filter permanently stuck in place regardless of whether the camera is in day or night mode (falsely coloring the day image with pink hues). Have made several attempts to...
