  • Camera sharing????

    By ssauls0613
    Nice camera but crappy software. How do I share my camera with another family member.
  • Great so far, but slow

    By GabrielaWilson
    Firstly, my camera is great. Detailed with night vision too. Love that I can talk through it. The problems I have though involve the app. Every time I open it, it asks me to accept terms. It also is slow when moving around. Not in speed, but in the way that it lags and freezes. Still a great camera and purchase though, just think the app lags too much
  • I like it

    Great app so easy to use
  • The app downgrades firmware

    By reviewerjk
    The app has just suggest me to "upgrade" but it actually downgraded from 2.15.07 to 2.14.04. Model DCS5222L (B) it also asks me everytime i use the app to approve the terms of use

    Privacy agreement pops up every time you open the app.. very annoying. Can update review once this is fixed.

    By JWB5571
    This app takes forever to do anything. By the time the process of signing into the app is complete, everything has been removed from my home (and that is with a brand new iPhone X). All the floating buttons look great but make doing anything take four times as long. Love some of the new features but taking away efficiency for look wasn’t a good idea.
  • Great for the price

    By BluckD
    These are great little cameras for the price! If the power ever goes out they connect right back to the WiFi. The night vision quality is decent but the day vision is awesome! For some reason of of them constantly detects noise and is alerting us every 30 seconds, which is weird, but maybe we just need to reset the device and remove and reconnect. Other than that they are great stationery cameras.
  • Poor reception from out of town

    By Aquavideo
    The cameras function very well. The application needs improvement. The livestream hasn’t been good even on the best WiFi system. The video and audio both are very poor in quality.
  • User interface anything but intuitive

    2
    By TPASpeaks
    I’ve used a few consumer security cameras like these in the past and the user interface is usually pretty intuitive but this one is not. They’ve tried to pack so many options in the app that they have unnecessarily over complicated the whole thing. I can’t even find the place to adjust my notification settings. Something fairly important on a security camera.
  • Needs improvement

    By Queenbee9686
    It works but I personally think the app should be worked on more, seems kind confusing at times. I also hate having to constantly accept terms and conditions every time I log in.
  • Terrible app and camera

    1
    By swiss-o
    App constantly signs you out and makes you accept the terms almost every time you open the app. The camera disconnects itself on a regular basis. Skip buying and using the DLink app and camera.
  • Fix the app, please!

    By Whit6924
    If been using D-Link cameras in my home for years, so it was my choice when purchasing a camera for my parents. I prefer the ease of use of the mydlink lite app, but realized the new camera is only compatible with this version. The alerts for motion detection don’t work, (yes the setting in the app and phone for notifications are set to ON, and motion detection is on, active area set) and every time they open the app it makes them do another “terms of use and privacy agreement” which should only happen once, or when there are changes to the agreement, not EVERY time the app is opened. ALSO, it adds a duplicate of their camera installed every time the app is opened. So when on ‘multi view’ there’s 18 copies of the same camera, all of which appear to be loading... but never open. When I try to delete them it deletes the whole camera and I have to go through the device set up all over again. I really wanted this to be a good experience for them but so far they are not impressed. Please fix these issues! Thanks
  • Slow to launch

    1
    By keydash
    First off, there is no way this app has a 4.5 star rating. I scrolled through 268 reviews and counted 197 that are 3 stars and lower, 71 have 4 stars and above. Looks like someone is playing with the ratings numbers. Old app launches in 6 seconds. New app launches in 30 seconds. New app you will need to launch, select camera, and view camera in portrait before you can go to landscape. Way too many button clicks compared to old. One screed shows my 8 cameras and a different screen only shows 7 cameras. Looks like someone didn’t do a flow chart before they started development. I continue using the old app which is more reliable, does what I need and want, and has a better interface.

  • So glitchy!

    By FrannyBennett
    First, it often says that too many users are logged in, even though there is just one. Second, it often skips frames and you can see that second count is jerky. Basically it doesn't show everything -- on a 100 Mbps link. Third, the push notifications are only once 5 min by design. Stupidly rare if you're using it as a video nanny.

  • Bad. Just bad.

    By x zaxbys app user
    The need to click on agreement to load app when you get an alert and the live feed taking several minutes to load when something could be happening at your home? Worthless. In three days I have learned that this app allows a phone alert for sound and motion in an empty room every one-two minutes, and although the camera is set to record on alerts, when tapped, all recordings show an error that there is no file; it appears to a scheme (scam) to direct customers to pay for the cloud. More than that, the app only allows a limited number of recordings (which have icons for files that are not available)to be deleted at a time. The inability to access recordings in my sd card, as well as everything reported above makes this company worthless to me. I am returning the camera and deleting this unprofessionally made app.
  • Microphone toggle taken away

    2
    By Dusty8118
    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this service for the last 6 months. However, after the last firmware update the app has taken the option to turn the microphone off and on. Not having this ability to turn the microphone off is too invasive for the members of the household. If this option doesn’t come back, I’ll have to cancel my service and find another system to go with. I’ll change my rating when this option returns.
  • HELP

    By ShaniaNancy
    Love the device, Ive had it for a couple months now. Has been one of the best purchases I've ever made, I can finally keep an eye on my baby girl (from wherever I'm at!!), can move the camera through the app, I can even hear and talk to her through it!!.. Well I use too. At first the app worked perfect, but for some reason it recently has started going downhill. it's been extremely choppy like it misses every couple seconds of video, it won't let me listen in after I talk to her through the mic unless I close the app and go back in. And now it won't let me hear anything in general, even after closing the app and reopening multiple time!! Somebody please help me, I would really appreciate any tips to fix these issues.
  • Great app

    By Riddick1224
    I have had one Dlink Camera for awhile and used a older app for it. Just got a new camera and it wanted me to used this app for it. Luckily my old camera will also work with this app so I don’t have to use 2 apps. The reason I am giving this 3 stars instead of 5 is there are a few things that annoy me about it. I shouldn’t have to Agree with the Agreements every time I want to get into the app. I should only have to do it once when I sign up for the app and that is it. It drives me crazy and takes extra time to get in to the app because of it. And on the Dashboard it shows my cameras as doubles instead of just my 2 cameras. So I see each camera twice.
  • Not supporting All devices

    Why doesn’t it support of the DSP 215?
  • No continuous recording?

    1
    By Alex B910
    Manufacturers keep chasing each other adding more and more unnecessary features. But they absolutely miss the key points. Why not make things simple? Where is continuous recording to micro SD? Why not make a button for it? What’s wrong with 480p or 360p? Why not make a camera a bit larger and have a slot for a regular SD card? Why not have controls from desktop?

    By dclark91b
    My wife and I have given this camera and the application more than a fair chance to prove it’s worth. It’s failed each and every time. There are way cheaper and more effective alternatives on the market with far better support and reliable equipment.
  • Privacy and Legal

    1
    By ITAstronomyGuy
    I rated this a 5 star app until they removed the microphone on/off toggle. Even though Privacy Mode is an option it’s not a remedy to wanting to view your camera without sound. Also did you consider if there are any legal implications for your users. Perhaps some state and local laws require the toggle ( I have no idea if they do, but not being able to turn the mic off could be an issue ). Clearly some customers will have different techincal aptitudes, but your user interface and compliance teams probably over compensated on those choice. Also where is the updated terms and conditions to follow this change since it changes the capability of the device that I purchased.
  • Great App

    The clarity is perfect, only issue, you have to close and reopen app due to the talk button will freeze up and not allow you to speak, doesn’t always work. But overall it’s a great app.

    unfortunately the sd recording system on this cameras never record. We have four of them connected and they never record, had different sd cards updated software and they never record. Save your money now on days you have so many options D-link use to be a great product Not any more it’s just a scam. Huge scam system never works. Don’t waste your time and money. Thic company makes your sd card Not to work so they can sell their cloud storage suscription. Just a Scam...

    Bought it to keep an eye on a puppy my fiancée and I just bought. Trying to setup notifications are a pain at best, and then half the time it doesn’t even notify us in an appropriate time. Takes FOREVER to notify the phone of movement. Would be perfect if we had a faster response time instead of minutes later. At this moment in time, I can’t recommend this for a reliable form of video recording. The livestream is fine.. everything else.. not so much.
  • Terrible update - DONT BUY!

    1
    By Irving_Klitgaard_Fam
    This is a terrible update compared with the previous d-link+ app. I have the same story as Draco1775 (see review from him); wanted to add a camera, got the dsc-8100 which (I didnt know) requires the new app. The old app was great, the new app is S.L.O.W., and you cannot have e.g. 4 cams in one single screen now (you need to scroll). Also, the live view isn’t live: you have to click every came to wake it up and start sendig live (which again is S.L.O.W). Probably a consequence of D-link migration to cloud based solution (get subscription fee, limit data load)

    By Adam_C87
    I can FaceTime, WhatsApp, stream videos abroad from my current connection and location just fine but for some reason I am unable to tap into my camera’s video feed without it freezing after a few seconds or so. When it freezing it just stays frozen. It doesn’t buffer or reconnect. It’s really disappointing. I just want to see my family with the product I purchased. I’ve tried from multiple devices and it does the same thing. I feel cheated and unfortunately wasted my money.

  • More awful buggy software

    1
    By PlanckFoam
    Bought new camera, so forced to upgrade to this buggy incoherent mess. Complete waste of an hour trying to setup camera. No basic instructions - does camera need to be wired connected first, who knows. Where’s the QR code? Who knows? Then awful software hangs after ‘successful binding’ - had to reset entire iPad just to restart app. App then says camera is offline, yet there is the image coming from the camera! UI is inconsistent with stupid incoherent symbols in some areas and text in other areas, and inconsistent from page to page. Some pages you have to hit ‘next’ at bottom of page (which is barely visible or obvious), other pages you have to go back ‘<‘, but does this ‘save’ your input - who knows? User Interface is like it was designed by a 5 year old toddler. App also doesn’t respond to iPad orientation - forces portrait! What buggy crap - bought my last Dlink device. They should be ashamed for inflicting software this awful and buggy on their customers. I’d give it 0 stars if Apple had that option. But don’t despair if you have to use this app because it’s the only dlink app that’ll interface with your camera - if history is any indicator it’ll only take them 5 to 10 years to get the bugs worked out of their awful software. CONCLUSION: never buy Dlink products.
