This review is from: D-Link DCS-5010L Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Camera
The camera's pretty much just plug and play, There's a template to use in order to mount directly to a surface, or you can use the included bracket to offset the mounting location.
You can use motion detection to send you alerts or to begin recording video. The alerts can include an image of what triggered the event.
You can log on to the dlink cloud service to view your camera from anywhere you have an internet access.
You are able to record the camera's stream onto a local network drive.
The camera can see in total darkness. It can auto select day and night mode or you can manually select it.
DLink has an app for Android and iPhone. The android app works well and can be used anywhere that you can connect to the internet.
You must have an internet connection to use the install software or to get the manual. Only a quick start guide is included in the packaging.
The included software makes panning and tilting a hit or miss affair. The camera only responds occasionally. The camera can easily be heard when moving and sometimes ticks at random intervals.
The IR LEDs are readily visible anytime they are on. That makes the camera easily seen, which is gets it identified in a surveillance situation, there is also an activity LED that is always on or flashing, I haven't been able to find a way to turn it off, which other cameras allow.
There is a free app, but there is also a paid app. The free app is constantly searching on a tablet, making a phone the only viable option for a mobile application.
You can access the camera directly by going into your web browser and entering it's IP address, which your router will supply.
I have installed surveillance systems in residential and business environments. This camera is good for this price range.
