This review is from: D-Link DCS-933L Day & Night Wi-Fi Camera with Wi-Fi Extender
It is easy to set up with mydlink cloud
Can view it from mobile devices such as Android or Apple products
Has night vision and sound detection
Has Wireless extender capabilities
Good mounting options
Not very good for a home surveillance system
Hard to set up manually and may cause networking issues
Wireless extender is sketchy
I have a good back ground in networking so to start out with I tried to set this device up manually. I got it up and running some what but the problem is I couldn't access it outside my home network even after forwarding ports. So I reset the unit and tried my luck with the mydlink software and fared much better. The software actually surprised me how it detected my network(which is a little more advanced then most) and set itself up effortlessly. I made an account on the D-Link site which was quick and painless and before I knew I was viewing it on my phone with the D-Link App. Pretty simple to set up and easy for the average Joe. Would I recommend for a home security system?... No, but it would work for a baby monitor or something like that. The reason being I could not figure out how to get it to stream video to my server or get it to email me pictures. But if you wanted just to keep an eye on a location periodically through your phone or PC it works just fine. BTW the night vision works just fine inside my house.
