Seems good price for a decent brand with amazon service!
Would you recommend these over the Yi’s camera?
Smartthings compatible? Not in the list in the ST app, but worth the ask.
I have one of these from a while back.
TBH it's not great. Was easy to set up when I got it, but not anymore...no longer compatible with Firefox, Chrome or Edge.
Picture quality is not great. Many of the Amazon reviews are fair iMHO.
After many sensitivity adjustments it still sends alerts when daylight changes to nightime..and vice versa.

The good - sends reliable e-mail movement alerts (except for light changes!).
Sends movement sensor images to FTP server or send to Dropbox folder or similar, so free remote stored images (took a little setting up to achieve).
The D-liink mobile app works very well, and you can quickly see what is happening remotely.
For 20 squids it seems a good price but I don't know what alternatives there are in that price range that might do better...

Edited to add - Smarthings - no, I don't think so...

Certainly a good price but the reviews on Amazon are v poor (20% one star). Could someone recommend something better around this price point.

How do you get it to send images to Dropbox
Point it to save images at a Dropbox folder on your server/PC.

I can't get to the advanced settings to see - Mydlink not compatible with anything anymore!
I have this. Worst picture quality
I have one of these, 24/7 recording directly to my NAS. Picture quality is ok for during the day but night time is pretty pointless.
I have it pointing out to my garden, I can’t use the night vision as the infra red lights reflect off the glass .
Fab spot, that seems a great price @Jasleen

I also got one from a while back, I use it to keep an eye on my parents home when they are away, never had a problem using it in chrome, or via the app on my phone. Easy to setup via wps button on most routers. I can't compare to other cameras, but I've been happy with mine.

How did you get that working ? I wonder if it can be hacked to work with the Amazon Show ?

I have a QNAP NAS drive. An app within that let’s you connect to this camera.
QNAP surveillance I think it’s called.
You can use the free ispy software and record to a PC - but it has to be on all the time. We have these cameras but have had issues with them dying after a few years, so I will avoid as unreliable and not great picture quality.
For the money you can’t go wrong, suppose it depends what you want to use it for, works well with milestone recording software with a bit of tweaking and remotely view on phone/iPad using milestone app or just a generic 1 from the App Store, not the greatest of pics (still ok) but if your looking for a super sharp pic you wouldn’t be thinking you could get 1 for a score would u?
I have two of these, and a 930L (do not recommend that one)
which I am using for some basic observation (not security) the resolution is low.
Configuring the cameras is quiet good, and the ethernet socket works perfectly.

The app on the phone works great. (android)
You need Firefox ESR version to view from the desktop.
I purchased mine from ebay at around £15 second hand.

I did not need to mess around with the router to be able to view the cameras from outside (mobile data)

Alerts come in consistently for my phone and via email, the email is set to email me photos too and was easy to set up

I didn't want to get the chinese ones as I needed reliability over resolution. And there were to many fake reviews and connection issues.

theres also DLink forum specifc to this camera, so worth a look (I had a problem that my password was to long, weird as it was fine for the other camera)


USing firefox you can access more configuration options then you can with the app.

I think it's an old model 2011?! Video resolution is poor eu.dlink.com/uk/…pdf on the plus side it is cheap and appears to have ethernet or WiFi support. Software seems dated

pretty old, but cheap too and I think its difficult to find a 'branded' camera at this price.
Camera is vga only?
Prob ok for a cheapo security deterrent considering a RING unit is 5 times the price
Damn, this ticked boxes for a cheap wifi camera that worked with the qnap surveillance station app but that resolution is not good.
Decent price for what it is. Not the best quality but a bit of a bargain for that price. Have some heat.
Used 3 of these with ispy for a number of years (one in a homemade external housing). They worked well with the third party software and I was happy with them at £30 a pop.
Eventually switched to an Arlo set up as the wifi was getting saturated by using 3 of them and Arlo uses it's own wifi network. Great little cameras though.

If the QNAP security app is anything like the synology (continuous recording) you don't want multiple 1080p streams over your wifi 24/7.

No. Hell no. I got one of these in a smart home pack. While the image quality was good the app is AWFUL. No email alerts on mine, no cloud backup available or IFTTT integration even. Their customer service took WEEKS to get back to me and was no help in the end either. Techie here and couldn't get it to work with anything else, eventually gave it to my friends as a baby monitor as have to view everything live on the app anyway as can't get and replays.
If you want a great pan tilt 720p IP cam with a remote viewing app then I highly recommend this for £35
It is even onviv and works with the likes of Blue Iris if requied.

Described as "wireless".
Requires wired power source.
Logic.

Thanks, think this might be what I need
the FTP function of this camera is the reason you need this.

combine this with Storage Made Easy which bridges FTP with any cloud storage and you have a cloud storage security camera for not very much money !!

Image quality leaves alot to be desired, but FTP is a feature that rarely features on newer cameras.

I am trying to get the setup, but i whenever I put the details into the dlink settings it says access denied wrong pass/username?
are you talking about Storage Made Easy ? I recall there was a Europe server & US server .. make sure you use the right one.
