    No Motion Detection Schedule function

    • Written by from Blackthorn

    we bought four of these cameras for our office and home monitoring purposes. However the camera doesn't have the most fundamental function which is the motion detection scheduling allowing you to set when you want the camera to enable/disable the motion/sound detection! This means that he motion/sound detection push notification with this model can only be set to on or off. So if you have it on (which you obviously want in order for camera to let you know in case someone tries to break in), you have to put up with receiving 1000's of false emails/notifications of a motion or sound detection when you are in and about during the day (imagine having this in an office with 6 employees and customers coming in)... When you turn it off you obviously stop receiveing notifications all together which defeats the whole purpose of having security camera in a first place. Dlink's custumer service response was that we should have purchased DCS-2310l /dcs-2132l instead. My problem is that there is no clear information anywhere provided by D-link that such a basic and trivial information is missing from some of their (even higher end) models!!!

    When it works it's great but connection is very flaky

    • Written by from Reading

    Mac and IOS integration is not great and when connected it is quite juddered would have expected a better user experience for a product which is available in the Apple store to be honest. I can never seem to run the mydlink on mc or PC, Java issues everywhere..I had to pay for the dlink+ app now it's free...updating camera looks a right flaff as well..

    D-link camera

    • Written by from Farnborough

    This is my second purchase of a d-link camera. They are easy to set up and good quality. The only down fall is the power supply cable could be longer but that's just a small issue. The picture quality is good and I'm most impressed with the night vision. The new app runs smoothly and allows you to control/adjust most things.
    I will be purchasing another camera as these are great for the price.

    Oh Dear!

    On the plus side it is a good little camera for the money, a bit slow to load pictures and 6 second delay, but good quality pictures......But, be prepared for the usual trouble.
    On the box is says 'Zero Configuration' - Well excuse me whilst I die laughing.
    Zero Configuration took me nearly all morning (iPhone,MBA and 21" Desktop) to configure - Load new firmware, then load some more, Java this, Java that, then download some updates - It was so frustrating.
    Why don't Apple produce a nice little CCTV camera and run D-Link out of business - One that just works straight out of the box!

    Mac installation hopeless

    • Written by from Rossett

    I have wasted nearly a whole day working out how to install this on my mac. I need java 6 which no-one tells you and it seems virtually impossible to find and download. I am off to call apple now and see if they can help.

    Very impressive!

    • Written by from Leatherhead

    Bought this camera when I went back to work after we had our first baby - basically so I wouldn't miss out on anything! I followed set up instructions and I had it up and running in no time. I'm amazed at the picture quality considering the price. I love that it has a built in microphone so I can hear all the little noises and gurgles! So pleased I went for this over others on the market.

    A great product for a great price

    • Written by from Farnham

    I bought two of these cameras, one to point out onto my front garden and the other is in my home office. Set up was flawless - which I admit I wasn't expecting because I am not a techie. I downloaded the free iPhone app and I can view both cameras form my phone at one time - which is great. The visuals are good - especially at night. If you're after a low cost CCTV solution, which is simple to use and effective - this is your man.

    Good product for monitoring your home while away

    • Written by from Sunningdale

    I found this product really easy to install and use.

    We now have the Mydlink software working well on both our iPad and iPhone and we have set the alert capability up, so that when movement is detected when we are out, we receive an email. It's a great way of seeing what the dog is up to in the day!

    I was impressed to see that the camera also records audio, as many don't.

    I'd strongly recommend it.
