Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not a good buy

 

The mounting bracket is the best feature.

The picture is very fuzzy, no sound which is my mistake when picking out this model, DLINK interface leaves a lot to be desired.

Product Specifications

The DCS-900 Internet camera is designed as a cost-effective security system for home and the small office. This camera connects to an Ethernet network in a building, or to the broadband Internet. Equipped with a built-in Web server and software for multi-camera monitoring and management, this camera provides a complete system for effective surveillance from a local site or anywhere via the Internet. This Internet camera comes with a built-in CPU and Web server, providing a low-cost solution capable of solving demanding security and home/office monitoring needs. Its integrated Web server eliminates the need to connect the camera to a computer. Once installed, you use the built-in IP address to gain access to the camera, make changes to camera settings, and view live video. For remote security monitoring, you can install your camera at your home or the office, then view the images from anywhere via a computer running Internet Explorer or Netscape. Directly connected to the Internet without going through any computer, this camera is simple to install and can easily integrate with your network environment. Instead of recording 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, images can also be recorded only when motions are detected. This saves your disk space and eliminates the time wasted to view unnecessary images. Images can be directly archived straight to your computer hard drive or to a Network Attached Storage. Surveillance software, called "IPView Lite", is included to let you view up to 4 cameras on a single computer screen at one central location. Images can be recorded to your computer's hard drive manually or according to a pre-set schedule. The DCS-900 supports video resolutions at up to 640 x 480 dpi. The camera uses M-JPEG to stream live video at up to 30 frames per second for real-time viewing.
