Ease of Use

I purchased this product two weeks ago based on price, features and D-link's overall reputation. In short, it's tough to set up if you want wireless (I do) and have named your wireless network in such a way that includes a space. For instance "SJC Network." The software will not allow you to setup for wireless. After more than 30 minutes on the phone with someone offshore at D-Link support (pleasant but clueless) I finally found out through surfing that you must have a SHORT one-word name for your network. Other than that the camera is about what you would expect for under $100. It's the only one I've ever owned so I cannot compare it.

D-Link's Wireless N Home Camera DCS-930L works independently of your PC, so even with everything else turned off, the camera still broadcasts.

Great camera for LAN; Difficult Verizon FIOS setup

by C A Wilson on 12/16/2010

Great Network camera with easy setup for the LAN, but I have tried at least 6 times to get my Verizon router to let the video go out to the WWW, with no luck. Port Forwarding is VERY difficult and confusing on Verizon FIOS. I have had to reinstall the camera several times when I 'lost it' due to erroneous Port Forwarding. I even bought the "PCConfig" software online to help with that, but still no success. I also got signed up for a domain name service with DYNDNS.org but that new URL only takes me to my Verizon Router Logon screen, not the camera output. The motion detection and email notifications work fine. So, it's great if you ON the local network, and some day I hope to get it visible to others on the Internet! Maybe other ISPs and routers are easier to set up!

Okay for indoor use

by Leon on 1/5/2011

I wanted to use this camera as a security cam looking out a window. In daylight the picture was terribly overexposed, and nothing I could do would fix it, making it unsuitable for my purpose. Inside, and even outside in low light (night) it actually gave a good picture, and sound. The network setup was fairly straightforward, but opens up upnp ports into your network, which makes it easy, but I have some security concerns. Emailing images was easy, but gmail thought it was being spammed. Having a secure file transfer, like scp would be better. I wanted to upload images so if they stole my PC I'd have a picture somewhere. The price is really great, and a good camera for indoor use, just not good for any type of outdoor pictures.
