Nice but clear your schedule to get it to work

If you buy this, save yourself some time. I could not get the mobile app to work so I signed onto the website (box instructions say to do mobile app- Ignore). Use Firefox or Explorer on your computer. It does not work on Chrome or the like. If you do this, you should not have to call customer service. Set-up is easy IF you are on the right browser. Once you have everything working on your computer, you can do the mobile App. For me it is easier to set things up on my laptop.
1st camera and after I got it working, I like it. Bought it to catch a animal.
!. take item out of box, connect Ethernet line to wireless internet.
2. plug in the power cord
3. go to mydlink.com and click on Not Registered to create an account
4. go through the steps and you should be all good. If you get a black screen on your view - see browser suggestion above.
Once you register, you can unplug the Ethernet cord and just have the power cord. It walks you through all the steps. Yes, it does not have a battery and has to have a power source.
Camera has great quality and its pretty cheap. If you just want to be able to check on your house, this is a good buy. If you want time stamps and extras, this is not the one for you. Hope this helps make up your mind!
Oh, one more note. Mine was a return so if you are not sure if your camera is new, just get a pin out (earrings are perfect) and reset the factory settings. There is a small hole on the back of the unit. Hold for at least 10 seconds. This wipes out everything. Good luck!
IF you have to call customer service, have your camera handy. They want all the numbers off the unit.

Its going back immediately!

Absolutely the worst wireless camera I have ever purchased. Bough for remote viewing of my pets and home while at work. "Easy Wireless Connection" was a joke, spent two hours trying to get it to connect before calling customer service. Tech support treated me like I was an idiot for not knowing how to change settings that I can't explain even now, and after about 2 hours of him guiding me through random internet pages (most of which wouldn't even load) the camera worked wirelessly.
I was pleased with the picture quality as I need it for in home pet and child surveillance, but if I viewed the camera from within my home I got horrible audio feedback.
Unfortunately after 2 hours this camera went offline, so I called DLink back. Tech support said "It does that sometimes, you can reset it and it will work." So.. I did, and 2 hours later it went offline again. Called back and was told to take back the camera if I didn't like it, and promptly hung up on.
Reset the camera again hoping it was just my wireless connection going out due to storms and for some odd reason the camera wasn't reconnecting.. but it did it again. Called back DLink yet again and was told to hardline the camera via ethernet cable to see if that helped.
Out of sheer desperation (It is 12am, can't really go switch it out) I tried this, even moving my camera to a room I do not need to watch so it is near the modem and my ethernet cable (since I dont have a 100 ft ethernet cable to stretch to the room it needs to be in) and lo and behold, it disconnected its self again.
Called back tech support one last time to ask if my camera was defective and I was told to buy a new router (we have clearly established it is not the router as it does this hardlined) deal with resetting it every 2 hours (which if I'm at work how am I going to reset it? Defeats the purpose of a remote camera don't you think?) or return the camera.
After all of these problems and the HORRIBLE customer service, I will be returning first thing in the morning and will never purchase another DLink product again.
I absolutely do NOT recommend.

I have been thinking about getting a video baby monitor and was at Best Buy today. I was looking at a product that was about twice the price and the sales man said he had the more expensive one and this one and this one was much better. He did say it could be tricky to set up, but he knows my husband and said it would be easy for him. My husband says it is one of the easiest things he has ever set up. Now I'm watching my son sleep in a pitch black bedroom and I can see him clear as day.

Lousy D-Link Customer Support
Posted by: FormerUser from: on
Camera worked fine until D-Link did a software update which I could not access. Despite repeated requests for help from D-Link, I was never able to update my software so the camera was rendered useless to me. Won't use this company's products ever again. Suggest you don't either.

I bought this camera, skeptical because it was inexpensive during black Friday for $59.. Now I am kicking my self for not purchasing two or more. This camera is awesome and so easy to install and to use.

Nice Camera, it is everything else that is wrong
Posted by: RIMorton from: Bowie on
We bought this and sadly returned it the next day. The simple setup works great if you have a real simple setup. Sadly, there are other issues that I can not explain that were the cause of the return.
First, I have setup dozens of wireless networks and hundreds or thousands of wireless devices, so I am by no means a novice. I was joining this to an existing Cisco Linksys EA4500 router. Downloaded the setup wizard and went through that. The camera would not connect to wireless by manually entering the information or using the WPS system. Everything worked hardwired.
Actually, that is not entirely true because the EA4500 admin site (https://192.168.1.1) was taken over by the DLink web admin site from this camera even though it was assigned and using IP 192.168.1.130. This is the part I can not explain.
Anyway, after several attempts, it seems this Camera will not join a WPA/WPA2 personal mixed environment. It joined once I changed that to WPA2 personal. Sadly, it once again disrupted the admin page of the EA4500 router. I did a factory reset on the device and set it up using just the web admin console. By doing that I could see no way to link the camera to the D-Link cloud and it still interfered with the EA4500 admin page. No matter what I did though, the D-Link Admin console always seemed to take over or interfere with connecting to the EA4500 admin page whenever it was on the network until the router was reset. It was really odd.
Reset again, got it on wireless and in the D-Link cloud (with the setup wizard). Configured some motion detection areas, configured an FTP site on a server I host at a remote location. Tested it from the web admin console and it saved a picture there. Configured some email alerts. The motion alerts were to send 15 seconds (max) video to the FTP server as well as some still pictures. I received alerts on motion in email with a link to the cloud device so I could see a real time view. Nothing went to the FTP server and I did not see anything saved in the Cloud (or a way to). As near as I could tell there is no way to see what triggered the motion detection. That makes the feature fairly useless. Due to these fatal flaws, the devices has been returned already.
Why 2 stars. The picture quality was way better than I expected. The night vision worked well enough to see things 18 meters away without issue. I was really concerned that the resolution was going to be too low, but it was fine for our needs. It was just everything else that was rather annoying.

Okay, but. . . .

This was our first security camera for the home, but when we discovered that the same company had a camera that would pan and tilt for a similar price, we returned it and got the pan/tilt model. Both models seem to have the same picture quality and work even in the dark.
The 1150 model had a short power cord. The pan/tilt model had a more acceptable cord length.
Set-up required 2 calls to D-Link tech support, but they were very helpful and patient. Afterwards, I bought 4 more cameras and set them up myself with no problems.
You can monitor and angle the cameras on a smartphone or iPad, as well as a desktop computer, as long as your home wireless is working. You can have notifications sent to you when the camera detects motion or loud sounds. If you were to use the camera to monitor an outdoor setting, you might want to turn off the motion detection notifications, as just a slight breeze will be detected.
My biggest concern is that they do not record when motion is detected, so if you are not actually watching when something happens, you will never know what it detected.
But, for the money, this will work.

Great if you want to stare at your phone all day. No recording function so you have to see it as it's happening.

Easy setup, great night vision
Posted by: Jorge from: on
I was looking for a simple camera to point to the entrance of my house, so I bought this camera casually, thinking it was a very simple one.
Well, it's resolution and clarity is impressing. The night vision feature stunning, and I can even hear the surrounding areas.
I use the application from the manufacturer and I had no issues. It's simply error proof.

Got this camera for my home, unfortunately due to my own fault I didn't check to see if it records or not. After installing it, I found it did not and that was not very useful especially when it is being used to cover a door entrance. Though to be able to check from any part of the country was really good.
