You really should define "stop working" and "after a while".


I say that because I have 5 d-link cameras in 2 homes, 4 wifi power switches, and 1 water leak monitor all made by D-link and I've had them for about 2-3 yrs and they are working fine. More reliable than my Wink Hub and associated devices.
Could you rewrite that as a haiku?

If you have an old smartphone lying around, you can just use that as a video monitor instead.

Not sure if you were being sarcastic or what, but I really wanted to know what's wrong with it because I'm considering getting it as my wife is expecting Confused

I believe most Dlink products are decent. I have had a very cheap Dlink camera for 4years, running 24x7 and that is actually the most reliable camera in my home. never failed on me. If you get a defective item, their customer service is very responsive and should be able to replace it and go through with the troubleshooting.

I have a couple of the D-Link 932L cameras. They work just fine, and I've been using them for years as baby/kid monitors. They don't have two-way audio, but other than that they are very similar to the baby monitor listed here: night vision, 640x480 resolution, etc. They can't pan, zoom, etc. But that's fine for what I need. So $40 for this camera seems like a fine price to get an internet-enabled camera.

My wife and I looooooove that we can see the kids sleeping from wherever we are - across the house or across the country.

BTW, I've tried other IP cameras, and they are a huge hassle to set up. The real advantage of D-Link, IMO, is that they're very easy to set up.

Bought this camera several months back from Sam's, after spending the whole day playing around with it, I returned it. Here are the issues I had:
* The app sometimes freezes - I installed both android app on a phone and a IOS app on iPad air 2. It froze on iPad more frequently then on android. I would turn it on and after sometime when I looked at the device it would sometimes either say that it is disconnected from the camera or the app would be frozen.
* The video refresh rate was quite bad - I would say 1-2 frames per second. The image quality was acceptable.
* The sound quality was bad - it would often cut in and out.
I can tell you that being tech savvy will not help you make this camera work better (I'm a software developer and deal with a lot of complicated software, this software is not complicated, just not reliable). I have a decent DSL connection to internet at home which I never had issues with otherwise (Skype, video streaming, gaming) - not sure if it even uses internet connection to connect to camera, it may connect to it directly. I would definitely not recommend this camera - I don't believe it is ready yet.
I bought Lorex technology non-ip based camera instead and it has been very reliable and easy to use. Read some reviews for this camera on Amazon before buying (specially the critical ones) and be ready to return it if you have reliability issues like many other users did.

Please expand on this. How exactly could one execute on this. I own an iPhone now, but I have old androids. Will this work my good friend?
