Was Fantastic now ordinary
I purchased this camera a few years ago and I loved it !! It hd good picture quality and was fairly easy to set up . The reason I was drawn to this camera it was able to send push notifications through the APP AND also could send an image when motion /sound detected to my email address.
This was the reason I chose the camera - I used it to check on my cat when I was away for the day, I could check my emails and see an email with images attached showing my cat had accessed her food bowl. This was also handy as I was concerned that per...haps a stray cat had been accessing my property . I didnt want to be bothered in the middle of the night but was very happy to access the next morning for peace of mind . Things changed this year - I no longer received email messages with pics attached ;[ I tried through the dlink website to trouble shoot to no avail

A mixed bag over the previous version.
First, the positive. The introduction of encrypted streams is great as they are essentially to securing the camera. The addition of person detection is also a useful feature as it allowed you to quickly discriminate between simple movements and people in your house.
Unfortunately, that’s where the positives end. Compared to the first version, this is an extremely unstable product. Around half of the time, the camera loses its stream, and it can’t be fixed without returning home to the camera and manually resetting it. Also, D-Link have just re...placed the old app with a truly awful design that is difficult to setup and cumbersome to use. I have been setting up the cameras in the new app for two days and have yet to get it to work properly. I once raved about these little cameras, but at this moment, I can’t even recommend them. I’m considering replacing all of mine with a different brand — that’s how bad it is.
Great motion detecting camera and easy to set up
This camera is a must-have for anyone that is paranoid about home security (as I am). Incredibly easy to set up and affordable (around $129). Excellent motion sensor and with the app, you can receive notifications to your smartphone and playback video at the time a motion is detected. I love it so much that I bought more.
Safety and Recorded Security.
I have a phobia about Police bursting into my bedroom. Why? Because that is what the Police in Albany Western Australia did to me. What was I doing? Nothing. They very physically manhandled me and I ended up in a Mental Institution for so they said 'making too much noise'. It was a nightmare and will be subject of a Court Case. If I had a D-Link Mini Camera recording my activities they would not have been able to do what they did. It is an excellent camera and can be used anywhere there is wi-fi and a power supply. I record to One-Drive.
