4 out of 5 eggsSimple to use; Clear image; Maybe not for Fort Knox

Pros: Let's start with the superficial: it's a nice looking device. Not that it necessarily blends in, but it doesn't draw a lot of attention either.

This device is ready for the outdoors. With an IP65 rated casing it can handle anything but the extremes (and maybe even some of those) of dust, rain, hot and cold temperatures.

It was very easy to setup - you don't have to connect the Ethernet cord. I connected the wireless antennae, plugged in the device, pushed WPS on the camera, then pushed WPS on my router (for security reasons I turn WPS off when I don't need it), and everything just worked. I love it when the things that should be easy actually are easy. From there I download a program from dlink's website, as instructed in the materials that came with the camera. This program found my device and walked me through setting it up. Viewing the camera feed from dlink's website requires a browser plugin. I try not to overload my system with plugins but this seemed reasonable.

At this point new firmware was detected and I allowed the update to be applied bringing me to version 1.07.00. All of this without ever plugging in an ether net cable.

This camera is feature rich. It's got day and night time vision. The day vision is great, showing up to 720p. The night vision isn't stellar but it's acceptable especially up to about 20 feet.

You can setup motion detection and notification, schedule when it's active, choose whether to save notifications to a local SD card (not provided), email images, record video, store on a network drive.

You can setup privacy masks, for if you want to share the camera feed with others but don't want everything to be visible I suppose.

It supports Dynamic DNS, HTTPS, IP access lists, and SNMP.

And Dlink has apps you can use for iPhone, Android, and even Windows Phone. I really appreciate the addition of Windows Phone apps as I typically use one as my primary device. The app may not be as feature rich (I saw a complaint about an iPhone feature not working that is not in the WP app), but the fact that WP is supported and that I can open the app to see what the camera sees is a huge win in my book. I don't need admin features in the app, I can do that from a web site.

Cons: The day after I setup this camera I left town for 5 days. The second day, the connection was lost to the camera and it never came back. I haven't had that problem since, though I have had intermittent outages. So I can't really say if it's the camera's fault, or maybe something that happened at my router or even with my ISP.

I setup the motion notifications and it worked well during the day, but at night it sent me constant motion detection notifications. It has a sensitivity setting and you can select certain areas to be excluded from the monitoring, but I never quite got it to work the way I wanted it to.

Other Thoughts: Given the two cons I had, I might be hesitant to use this device as my primary security device in a remote area (or some place a don't visit on a semi-regular basis). Other than that it's a great little day/night IP camera with an IP65 outdoor raging. What's not to like.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Camera

Pros: Physically this camera looks nice and feels solid when you get it out of the box. I was surprised by the weight of it, but no complaints on that.
You will have to remove the rubber stopper to get to the NIC in order to plug in a network cord to your router allowing setup and initializing the camera. The instructions were good, easy to understand.

The video quality of the camera is good. Using it indoors for testing purposes it generally kept it to the night time mode due to the lighting in my house, but switching to color is easy if you want. This also has a Mic, and Speaker so through the smartphone app, you can hear what is going on, or speak through it. This can be funny if you have it in the house and are checking on the kids (older kids) while at the store... lol

The video feed is pretty clear, has a pretty good wide angle view for the most part. Overall I really like the device. You can see pretty good through the video feed.

I used the app from both the browser, as well as Android app on my smartphone, no issues with either.

The stand for the camera mounting is decent and does not feel like it will easily bend / break or anything. You will have to turn the tightening nut pretty good once you get it into the position you want so that it doesn't move. May take a little adjustment to get the right angle.

Overall I really like the camera and think if these are the features you are looking for this is a great camera to consider.

Cons: Not REALLY a CON since this is not an advertised feature... but I would like the capability to have it record the video feed to a computer (like a DVR) rather than having to use a MicroSD card in the camera, Maybe a future software / firmware update could allow something like that..

Other Thoughts: If you are going to place this outdoors, you have to keep in mind how you run the wiring for the electric plug. While the cord has a decent length, I don't have any electric outlets easily available in the areas I would want to mount it to that wouldn't make it hard for someone to simply unplug when they walk up. If you have outlets for christmas lights...(wish I did) then that may be a good option for you!

Also keep placement in mind in to where your wireless router is. If it's all the way across your house, it may impact connectivity.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy to set up and use

Pros: Incredibly easy to set up and have running right out of the box. It supports Power over Ethernet so you don't need to use the included adapter to be directly plugged into the camera. 30FPS at 720p is attainable, the infrared night vision works pretty well, and the device has a microphone and speaker to support 2-way audio.

I can also check the camera feed on my phone through the D-Link app, apply region-specific motion detection, and block/filter out areas on the screen as a form of a privacy filter.

Cons: The interface leaves something to be desired. There are a lot of submenus to navigate to find what you need for updates and configuration. The config also don't seem to work entirely in tandem with the mobile app; the app allows some feed options but provides alternate framerates for lower-resolution streams than what is configured on the feed setup on the web interface.

Other Thoughts: That interface seems to inherit from the web-based menu system that their other equipment uses, so if you're used to that it can be okay. The whole thing also feels dated compared to the rest of the product/package design, mainly due to being static pages with older coding styles. Not a big deal, but something notable in terms of UI/UX considering everything else is given the very "new/modern" feeling.

I'd also wish I could manually set from a range of framerate caps rather than choose from a predefined list of 1,4,7,15, or 30 FPS -- mostly because it seems that 30 FPS is just barely attainable for high quality configurations (which could depend on feed processing, depending on configuration), whereas something like 24FPS would be better on the device yet still a reasonably high framerate and lower data consumption.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, well made camera!

Pros: Good quality product.

Works indoor and outdoors

720P delivers good image quality.

Setup was quick and simple, including setting up the mobile app.

Mobile app worked flawlessly rather on WiFi, or using mobile connection while away from home, delivering a clean feed.

SD card support for recording.

Night Vision to see at night.

Built in microphone does a decent job picking up sounds in the room.

Cons: During my time of reviewing this product, I honestly didn't run into any real "cons".

Other Thoughts: The product is well made and comes with most of the features people would be interested in for a wireless camera. I definitely recommend this product to others, especially if it can be found on sale!

5 out of 5 eggsSo many things you can do with it

Pros: Let’s start with some of the things I really liked about this camera: I really like that it can be used both inside and outside and the camera housing does not have just that outside look so placing this in your baby’s room is no big deal because it won’t stick out like a sore thumb. If you were going to use this as a baby monitor I can say you would be very happy with it as it has a sound mic and with its night vision that covers 15 foot or so from the front of the lens you can see if the baby is sleeping or not. The biggest Pro to this is you can see the camera from your mobile device Apple and Android from work or while you're out and the baby sitter is watching the kids. The set up for this camera is easy: you load the app and set the camera up in your network and you're off and running that easy. I did see that some people were having issues with the setup and had some issues with setting IP address, I did not run into that. Using this camera as a security camera is the same as the baby monitor - the mic picks up what people are saying when they are at the front door and I have had no issues with feedback or ambient sound. The video quality is fairly good for a security camera. I know that a lot of people have been complaining that the video quality is low, no its not, not for a security camera 720P is fine I have no issues with seeing objects or people with the camera. If you find that you are getting too much data recorded, you can turn down the sensor sensitivity so you’re not picking so much up on windy days. You can add Micro SD card to record too and that works fine but I ended up just adding the recordings to my NAS. It was as easy as changing the file output location. This camera does POE “power over Ethernet” that’s huge because now you don’t need to worry about placing the camera next to a power outlet, you can just run a POE line and poof you're done super good idea and more IP camera manufactures need to add this feature it’s how real security cameras are powered and work so big kudos for that. The software that you get is super easy to use and understand. It’s not like Axis that can be overwhelming. This software is easy to use and make changes to I found it a super nice touch that D-link thought the software side and really makes this a great package to use and setup.

Cons: The biggest con is the firmware. If you’re going to be using this camera in the Wi-Fi internal capacity then you really need to make sure that you’re keeping up with the firmware. There is no built in method for this that I see but you never know they may add that later to an update. The night vision could go out a little further. Not so much a con but more of an overall grip about all night vision cameras is the huge drop in resolution. Wish someone would come up with a fix for this. So that being said you do get a bit of graininess with the night vision that the software should filter out, is it enough to not buy the camera absolutely not it’s a good camera and the software this is still a good buy.

Other Thoughts: The night vision could be stronger but not a deal breaker, the hardware for mounting could be a bit less bulky and feel more like mounts and less like a web cam. The thing that would have set this camera well ahead of all its compaction had they added it would have been the ability to black out sections of the screen to stop that part from trigger in the recording sensor. This would have stopped you from recording a blowing bush all day long but still not a deal breaker if you want that feature you can get it with a full security system that cost much more than this camera.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect outdoor camera

Pros: Weather resistant and quality made.
720HD and lower, adjustable and helps for longer recording time.
SD card for on camera recording.

Cons: The screws to the SD access cover are small.. easy to loose if not careful.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand two things..one the wrong crazy price.. $219.99 list at D-Link.. vendor pricing, not Newegg.
Secondly I totally disagree with the one bad review. Over 30' away I have a constant, clear connection with no loss. Very easy install and with D-Link DNR-202L you can record without a PC turned on. A PC or Laptop can be used.
I have an indoor DCS-5222Lb1, outdoor this camera. I will add more cameras as I build the system more and wireless is an easy install.. no wires in the attic.
I not only recommend this, I plan on a second one.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Wireless

Pros: This camera has a lot of bells & whistles--You can even do some vlan configurations with it if need be. The camera seem to work fine connected to a cat5(ethernet) cable, and performed well.

Cons: The wireless simply did not work beyond 2 feet from my router. I do wireless/wired troubleshooting on a daily basis for an ISP company, and know a few tricks to get things like this working. I could not get this camera to work wireless for it to function. There is currently no other firmware on the dlink site other than what it comes with. I'm hoping that it is just a bad camera as I am returning it for a refund. Will see if the next camera will work. I've had and have four other d-link wireless cameras and all seem to work fine.

Other Thoughts: If you are going to run a cat5 to this camera, it will suffice--just don't count on the wireless N to connect you.
