Didn't work with THEIR software.


I would not recommend unless a new version of the software is released.

Inexpensive, easy to connect to network with WPS.

Bought this camera to use with Dlink D- Viewcam software which allows viewing multiple cameras on a PC. Cheaper models worked perfectly, but this one is not compatible with their own software. The software must identify and configure a camera in order...

Does not work as advertised - DO NOT BUY!


Would not recommend purchase & I would never buy this camera again.

- Price & quality of images - interface for viewing multiple cameras both in-network and remotely

- neither camera will connect to the wireless network (which oddly requires a wired connection during setup & then disconnecting & a reboot after setup - the camera sees the network during setup but won't connect wirelessly) When I contacted tech...

Good for what it costs


I would recommend this product only for the most capable IT person. I've worked with cameras and computers for 33 years and found this to be a difficult install and operation.

Remote viewing on your cell phone app is great. Motion detection is fine. Night vision is very good. Field of vision is perfect for my needs.

Installation is not easy or intuitive. Chrome browser comes up with black screen, even after jumping through the hoops of installing plug-ins. Had to install Fire Fox. It can work with Internet Explorer. Too many warnings about unsafe websites to get...

Work well with Mydlink, DViewCam100, and other cams


Wanted to add two of these pan capable cams to my existing suite of non-pan cams (930L, 932L, 933L, 942L). Adds more diversity for manual viewing (others currently used to record motion etc via DViewCam) on the fly plus recording when they are in a...

None that I am yet aware of

Not happy


It's great when it works. Pan, night vision, and sound are all great features.

It only works 25% of the time. It either says "connecting " or a big red 'x' appears on the camera indicating it isn't available. I know it's not my wireless connection when I'm using it in the other room. The motion detector notification doesn't work...

Apple iOs 9


Great camera for the money. Help from D-Link was outstanding after iOS 9 added to my iPhone 4s.

I will purchase another camera.

Camera came on time. I was able to get excellent service from dlink tech support with AR004214 ( Breagan ). Stayed on the phone was very patient and knowledgeable and provided excellent service in getting me online. Thanks so much

Was not as simple to setup, needed additional steps.

Firmware update


Tech person was excellent and patient. I would be nice if DLink provided notice of new release of firmware.

Tech AR004296 - from DLink - Cameras stopped receiving remotely. Tech walked me thru Firmware update and got camera working again. Stayed on the phone until 100% resolution.

Each camera in my system will have to be individually updated.

Nice camera and works well


I liked this camera so much I just ordered another one. I have 1 of these cameras and it does what it was designed to do at a low cost. I can go away now and check in on my home and not have to worry. Right on my cell phone I can view if I closed my...

Quality of viewing is ok For the money -- Pan & tilt feature is worth its weight in gold. Plus it can zoom in - Take pic's and detect motion or sound if you want it to - It will also email you -

Well the only con I can think of is -- Heck - For under $80.00 what do you want --
